This is awesome! I love it, you did a great job getting the image transferred - I almost like your etching more than the original, because it looks more subtle and simplified.
Not to say the original isn't superb, because it totally is! Pin-up style mermaid = two of my favorite things in one.
As far as what to do with it, I sort of agree with ScrappySue. Hang it up, maybe in some place that the bean doesn't go often/at all, like your bedroom or (assuming you have your own bathroom) in your bathroom. I will say that, if it were smaller, I'd offer to do a personal swap to, um, take her off your hands. But I don't have the resources right now to make something of similar size/awesome. Maybe if you still have her in a little while . . . .
You can make English muffins with a regular stand mixer, or even by hand. I haven't used this exact recipe (the one we've used came from a cookbook), but ours turned out very well. You'd want to let it rise a bit before you roll it out and cut it, obviously, because that's part of what the bread maker does, but it shouldn't be too hard to do.
LadyDeath, yours look phenomenal! I like how puffy they are - ours turned out a bit flatter, but I think our yeast was old.
I'm rarely moved to jealous lust over a post on Craftster, but . . . I WANT that greenhouse. It must be SO amazing to have all of those great veggies and fruits at hand even through winter. And those beets and peppers look phenomenal!
There are a few things you could do - the first one that came to mind is, if you have any skill with poly clay or something of that sort, you could make an insert that looked like anything. Feathers in a color similar to the eyes would be my initial impulse, but that doesn't mean much.
You could also see about getting a backing for it and putting a photo of your grandmother in there, or someone else that you love. It would be a neat picture pendant!
My last idea would be to get a set of little cross bars that you could attach to the inside of the oval opening and string beads between them, to give it sort of a cool, bead curtain look. In my mind's eye, I'm seeing them strung top to bottom, in blues and golds, looking like a little screen in the middle.
