Making a Police Box Refrigerator

Police Box Fridge

I've turned my refrigerator into a Police Public Call Box. The doors look like the Police Box, the cap has the sign and a working light beacon, the ice/water dispenser is hiding behind the little phone door and it even makes a "whooshy" sound when the doors open!

Pet Memorials, Art and Pet Loving Come Together

Orange Tabby Urn

I have been a pet lover my entire life. I've never had fewer than three at any given time, usually more. When I as growing up, we had upwards of 10 dogs, 10 cats, chickens, guinea pigs, fish...

It was then that I realized that I could use my glass art to help myself and help others who had to deal with the tremendous heartbreak of losing a beloved pet.

Kitties Gone Missing!


It only took a couple of times of going out in a panic, not being able to find a lost kitty and then scouring the neighborhood in increasing tears, imaging the worst, for me to decide that I had to have a way to know where they were so I could at least have a reasonable shot at finding them.
