The 9th annual clothes swap was a terrific success!

The picture above is all the clothes to be washed and sorted before the Methodist Home For Children pick up date.

Let the fun begin!

Fire Speak: Cold at Bay   18 comments


Seems that winter and spring have argued over which is in control. Winter wins the weekend!

 

The fire dance

 

Who does not enjoy the warmth and glow that a fireplace provides?

 

Cedar fire hole

 

I favor the photos taken without my flash. I rely on the light cast from the fire itself.

Fire without flash=prettier

Keep the flame burning

 

 

Flames erupt into warmth

 

 

Streaks oh fire

 

Stay warm my friends.

Color Splashes: Art from Art   36 comments


The painted chair is curing rapidly with the warm weather. Surveying the area I soon start finding the accidental art created from my project.

Art by accident:In color This is one of my favorite chair project by-product! The sun came out with perfect timing to capture the shadows from the grass blades.

 

 

Nature Painted Brightly

Paint splattered fun

 

Winter leaves in color  Layers of various paints make a beautiful fallen leaf brilliantly fun!

Tiny Art: Big Color    I really like this small art piece!

 

Grounded Art with a Nut  Art on earth makes for great photos!

 

 

Paint Flow

 

I am still finding bits of art unexpected and have painted many leaves on this sunny January day. I am not sure what I will do with them other than enjoying the experience.

 

Enjoy your day!

 

Art Outdoors: Paint Fun   27 comments


As with most of my ideas/projects there is rarely an enforced timeline for completion. I started this painting project in December 2011.

Painted Wooden Fire Chair

I finished the majority of the painting this week.

 

Chainsaw Chair We use a large section from a fallen oak tree to cut the main body of the chair.

 

Fire Circle Wooden Chair The chair topper adds neat detail.

Day 1 Paint Fun  Day 1 Bright Paint on Wood

 

Day 1 Blended Color  Day 2 Paint Fun

 

Day 2 Colorful Chair  Day 2 My Hand Print

 

Day 2 Rear Painted View  Day 2 Paint Lover

 

Now for some random fun paint shots.  Day 2 The Paint Falls

 

Day 2 Painted Scream on Chair    Day 2 Painted Groove with Texture

The most difficult part of this painting was keeping my hands clean as to not paint my camera during the two days of painting. I used all old paints that would have ended up in the landfill to brighten up our backyard!

 

Enjoy your day!

Do Onions Make You Cry?   30 comments


Me just being me has all manner of experiments in various stages in my house and in our garden as well. Meet Mr. Onion Face!

 

 

 

 

 

 

So after 10 days of having my Mr. Onion Face on the counter, it was time to take farewell photos before the trip to the compost bin. Plus the gnats and smell is not very appealing.

 

 

 

The rotting tomatoes adds a little flair to the picture.

 

 

 

 

 

Time for the next phase for Mr. Onion Face. Let me introduce you to Seymour, our compost bin. Goodbye, dear friend.

 

 

 

Enjoy your day!
