In times gone by, I used to carve outdoor planters for thrift, out of big chunks of sandstone...with Celtic motifs...they looked good at threshholds....

i bet they did K, did you photo any of them?

31 Aug, 2011

 

Sadly no, W...I did them before I started taking pictures (it was in pre-digital days!) and I gave them all away...but the thrifts loved them, they were sort of at home in the stone!
