Random stuff

Here is some random stuff  from our summer!!
Warning- this post could be filled with many pictures-read on at your own risk.

First of all, great minds think alike. We also took a trip to pick blueberries.

No, that is not my bus. Although I think it would be fun to drive.
I loved the buckets all stacked and ready to fill.

All smiles and excited at the beginning of the day.
Picked blueberries for oh, let say about 20minutes and...
they were ready to go back to the car.

I did get them to stay in the field long enough to pick 30lbs of berries. That includes my mom's buckets.
We froze some, but we have already eaten about half of what we picked. Yummy!!!

Here are a couple of projects I didn't get a chance to post earlier.
A patriotic LBB dress, that I have not been able to find since I took these pictures.

It was meant to be worn on the 4th of July, but we lost it. I'm sure it will turn up. Probably in January, when it will be too small and out of season.

This outfit did get worn on the 4th. I made this for my friend Niki's daughter. She picked up the flower print at an antique shop. I think it used to be a tablecloth. I also made a dress to match for her younger daughter. Hopefully I will get some pics of them wearing their outfits.

Finally, on the way to the blueberry patch, we passed this.

These are all sculptures made from recycled objects.
The artist, Jack, was in his workshop and was more than happy to show us around when we stopped  to take photos.

He even let Marcus help with his current project, a dolphin made from metal shavings. He gets them from a local factory.

He said that he occasionally sells a sculpture, but that is not why he does it. He just love creating art from what would otherwise be forgotten.
The kids had a great time getting up close and trying to figure out what the art had been in a previous life.

It was all very inspiring.

Happy Recycling!!
