Ok I meant to make a book in rememberance of Barley, I ended up making a clock instead!!! I'm calling my piece "Keeping Spring Time"! Barley loved having the windows opened in the spring, he'd run from window to window howling like a goon. Here's a picture of it in progress, I love the bright orange feet, it just gives the whole piece spunk.
Check out my best friend, Brenda K. Backman's, blog :

She lent me this really cool book called Crafting Personal Shrines by Carol Owen.
