We are sure lots of folks across the west have seen and heard the return of the Canada Geese. A wonderful sight and their distinctive honking sounds, you know that warmer weather is not far off.
It’s springtime in Alberta and for the past month or so Canada Geese have been returning by the thousands. They stay and nest all over Alberta and it will not be long before we see goslings with their parents.
However you can enjoy them year round with one of these sun catchers.

In 2010 we made this as a gift for The Order of Eastern Star in Montana USA.

There is a sign post and a couple of homes north west of Hanna Alberta, where Scapa used to be. The elevator is long gone and so are the residents save for those homes mentioned above. You need to drive a gravel road to see the Scapa sign. We made this for a friend many years ago. We have since managed to obtain the original United Grain Growers Emblem which we now use on UGG Elevators.
These cool cats are a great sun catcher for cat lovers. They measure 8 inches high x 5 inches wide. We used a Spectrum Black/White/Clear Baroque glass for the one below. The second picture is of a grey cat. The grey cat is the first piece of stained glass that Flory ever made way back in 1999 in Arizona. Over the years we have made these in various cat and collar color combinations
This is the Baroque Black/White/Clear
Flory’s 1st piece of stained glass – Grey colored Abstract Cat
Over the years we have made grain elevators and using special letters we have put names and places on them at the request of our clients.
This one is the Saskatchewan Wheat Pool Elevator at Mozart.
