My husband’s hobbies

My husband has a problem , he can’t sit still,  so when he is not at work, he is busily doing things around the house. Years ago, while our eldest was on a school trip in France, the other two children and me were visiting my brother in Barbados, hubby stayed home to take care of our two dogs, work and stain the new staircase. He has refinished many pieces of furniture for me and together the two of us have upholstered a couch and love seat. He loves his flower garden but not my vegetable garden, though he will till it for me, and help plant the different veggies he doesn’t particularly care for.  His newest project has him building and designing ceramic tables for our patio. He has had practice for this, he made a ceramic tile design on our old kitchen table, which now hangs on our living room wall as art (much to the chagrin of the teenage boy). The old kitchen table, which took hubby six months to create:

The new ceramic table, (not grouted yet):

The layout for the second table:

I have no idea what his next project will be, but we are running out of leftover tiles.

Update, tiling finished (tiles purchased from the ReStore – Habitat for Humanity), just waiting for base to be painted:

    Wow, those are stunning. Did he cut the tiles to that petal shape? If he did he’s got talent (in fact even if he didn’t he’s got talent because I love them whether he cut them or bought them that shape).

      Thank you I will tell him. He designed and cut them himself. He is very artistic and has the ability to work on something for hours at a time. Now he is working on a hummingbird for me and as we are tiling the bathroom, he is getting ideas about making some sort of aquarium design in the shower.

      We both loved how colourful your table is! Keep it up, you have a definite eye for this work. 🙂

    On a side note while there are issues or problems in a relationship or marriage, both the partners need to take effort to understand the other partner a lot more with each day. Usually imposing and controlling views as well as acts is only going to lead to much more issues and also conflicts. Approval and acceptance has to be generally there from both sides in a relationship.
    Have a good day.
    thanks!
