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??

Ice Carving Festival!

One of the best things about cold weather is the annual ice carving festival here. The theme was ‘Wonders of the World”. Check out the creativity of these folks! I especially enjoy looking at out the tools they use to work with.

Farmers Market Fun

Last weekend we went to the local farmer’s market. So much to see there – the place was hopping! In amongst the usual vegetable and fruit stands we found these unusual items for sale. From far away I thought I was seeing framed art … some type of floral subject manner  On closer inspection we found these incredible living pictures! Succulents tucked into a wooden boxes and then surrounded with a lovely vintage frames! How clever  🙂  You can find these creations sold by the Bemis Upland Springs Floral growers team. visit their stall at the West Bend Farmer’s Market <OR> their greenhouse in Adell Wisconsin!
