arts and crafts with Wyatt

Mom and Dad have been busy playing with concrete and mortar.
I make myself available at every opportunity.
This is an old laundry room wash tub.
Once, we had a mosiac of colorful tiles stuck on there....but some of the tiles fell off.
So we decided to mortar basalt stone to the old wash tub.
I'm sure, many of you dogs are asking right about now, "I wonder what mortar tastes like?" Not so good...and I had to go sit in my kennel after I tried it.
So, this is the finished planter...and I helped!
We also made some more concrete leaves and finished staining them.
We have Borage and Rhubarb..
Hostas, Grape Leaves and Rhubarb
Happy Crafting!


  1. Wyatt, you are definitely a multi-faced individual. I hope stanzie does not suffer from an insecurities as a result of your far reaching talents!

    I tried making those concrete leaves, once. I was sooooo disappointed with my end result. I know I am feeling somewhat inferior, right now. Hence my worries about Stanzie!

  2. Wyatt you are certainly one fine CRAFTSMAN.
    Hey buddy did you see the gardening badge that I had up the other day? I put it there especially for YOU. I hope you picked it up. I got it for free from Dennis the Viszla.

  3. Wyatt!
    You have been very busy!
    The wash tub and the leaves are pawesome!
    Good job!
    Kisses and hugs

  4. Always something going on at your place, Wyatt. We love those leaves. But do stay away from the concrete.

  9. Paws up to you, nice job, mom likes the leaves, I bet they confuse the slugs, and tell Stanzie I'll take her up on the offer, as long as she don't mind sharing me with Lacie.
    See Yea George.
    Stanzie just for you xxxxxx

  10. Your planter and the leaves are spectacular, Wyatt! You are a very talented boy! Your gardens are just beautiful!

    Love ya lots
    Maggie and Mitch

  13. beautiful craftsmanship! Way to recycle!

  14. Awesome home projects going on at your place, Wyatt. I especially love that planter!

  15. Whoa...I give that planter 10 barks! The leaves are cool too. Mom is waiting for her tufa planter to dry. It is her first one and she will share it with you when she's done. She lined the container with rhubarb leaves...she must have been channeling with your Bipeds!
    Keep on crafting...I like the idea of paw prints. Maybe next time!

  16. Those leaves are awesome and the planter turned out so nice :)
