Yippee for Yart!

Almost didn't go to the Cain Park art show this afternoon, but boy oh boy, I'm sure glad I did!  Finally found some incredible yard art by Kentucky metal artist Rich Kolb.  He had so many unique, whimsical pieces that it was hard to decide.  I managed to score 4 new garden art pieces, although I wish I could have purchased much more.  Cole carried the large flying monkey piece to the car and we had so many positive comments about it.  I even had a lady run after me to ask where I had purchased the pieces.  I think Rich is doing a brisk business today, so good for him!

Love, love, love him.  The large flying monkey stake.

First Aid Kit - Cedar Lane

This Swedish duo has created one of the most beautiful songs ever.  Can't stop listening to it.

I'm a Cluckadoodle Dandy

My friend Wendy makes me laugh.  Here's a festive patriotic photo in celebration of the 4th and her description:

""Perhaps you are not familiar with one of the lesser known signers of the Declaration of Independence a.k.a. The De-cluck-ration of IndepHENdence, John Hen-Cock.
His chicken scratch can be found just below the real John Hancock's signature if you look close enough ; )

Last Year of Teenagedom

Yesterday, Cameron celebrated his 19th birthday.  The last of the teenage years, I don't think that will ever stop him from living his life like a young spirit.  He loves to experience different cultures and go on new adventures.  He makes me so proud.

Cameron and his lovely girlfriend Gina at dinner.  

Leave it to Cam to request a birthday pie instead of a cake.  He asked me to bake him a blueberry, raspberry, and blackberry pie.  I wanted to put crust stars on top, but couldn't find my bag of cookie cutters.  I found these hand cutters and decided it would be fine since he had spent the morning at the art museum with Gina.  It looked a little Matisse-like to me ;-)

This is yard art at a whole different level!  Front entrance area of the Don Drumm Gallery in Akron.  Best curb appeal.  Ever.

Yankee Doodle

Rebecca was sweet to send me a picture of my patriotic ornaments on her new feather tree.  I love how festive the display looks!  Makes me want to start doing ornaments again :)

Thanks for sharing Rebecca!
