Museum of Wisconsin Art

A great day checking out the latest Fred Stonehouse exhibit. And… we got to look at the new museum in West Bend!! I love these glass globes in the very corner by all the windows. Hmmmmm – I guess because I love GLASS??

Still waiting………

winters rest

Even though Groundhog Day supposedly told us that Spring was coming in 6 weeks I don’t believe it.  Not that I ever did but…..  one can always hope. It’s not that I don’t like Winter – in fact I enjoy the beautiful snow and blue skies. It’s just that there comes a certain point where you realize you are smack dab in the middle of it and you wish for a warm breeze. So we had snow, then rain, then up in the 50’s, then snow again. I managed to capture a picture of last Thursday’s snow event. Here you go…. WINTER’S REST.  This chair is just waiting for a waft of spring air!

Abandoned and Lost Spaces

I have always been drawn to old spaces and places that people used to inhabit. Traveling on back roads I am the first one to call out ‘abandoned!” causing the others to swivel their heads for a peak at something on the edge of ruin. These old and sometimes exquisitely sad buildings remind us how quickly the earth swallows up the places we no longer tread. On a recent drive we stopped for a few shots of an old farmhouse I have watched decaying for years. What’s the story…. how does someone just leave a place behind?

Check out this video …… some amazing old spaces ………….

Whoa… What happened to September??

Wow – the summer is over and we are plunged into Fall. And it has been C-O-L-D too! We already had a killing frost but somehow the garden perseveres.One fine day we went to the Farmers Market in Madison and then over to the Allen Centennial Gardens. Just beautiful! Who knew this place was tucked away near the Campus. I love to see what clever things people do to make gardens interesting. The house itself is an old Victorian that is being renovated. I would love to have seen the inside. I thought these resin planters all lined up looked neat! The second photo shows how they arranged slate on its side and then put succulents in between the pieces. it almost looked like ribs of n animal skeleton. How clever!
