Sorticulture 2016

Awesome Spiderweb

I must first apologize for the horrible quality of most of the pictures in this post.  I had the camera settings way off and didn't realize it until it was too late.  So the result was that most of the shots ended up in the trash.  And I suppose many of these should as well, but its just too cool of an event not to make a note of it.

This is a spiderweb hanging one of the vendors had.  He also makes those little stick in the ground birds and critters for your yards.  I told the lady running the booth that he really, really needs to do a spider like that.  I would buy one of those!

Spider Closeup

This is a close up of the spider.  He was just amazing!  If I had $300 to spend on a wall sculpture, I would consider doing so for this one.  Alas, I do not.  So, I will just hope he makes spider yard stakes next year.Sorticulture June 2016 Low Res (2 of 41)

Funky Bird

Again, sorry for the blurriness of the shot.  *Sigh*  I could shoot myself for that mistake.  But, he's a very cute bird!Sorticulture June 2016 Low Res (4 of 41)

This is my Artsy Fartsy friend Margie, doing her best Rosanne-Rosanna-Danna imitation!Sorticulture June 2016 Low Res (6 of 41)

And They Put There Heads On Stakes!

Kind of like a cartoon version of Game of Thrones where they put their heads on spikes, isn't it?Sorticulture June 2016 Low Res (8 of 41)

And no garden is complete without Designer Birdhouses!

Its a Horse's Ass

And even one with a Horse's Ass for those really jerky birds that dive bomb you for the good food to be replaced.Sorticulture June 2016 Low Res (20 of 41)

The Makings of an Owl

And this was kind of neat.  The guy was working on it just before I got there.  I would have like to have gotten pictures of him actually working, but the person he was talking to seemed like a friend and that they would be talking for quite a while.Sorticulture June 2016 Low Res (21 of 41)

Owl Drone?

Bawk!  Bawk!  Do the funky Owl!!!Sorticulture June 2016 Low Res (3 of 41)

Window Shopping

Lots and lots of people, though it got even busier just before we left.Sorticulture June 2016 Low Res (27 of 41)

Yessss????

I know that face.  Though it is generally peering over the edge of the warm bed.  Sorticulture June 2016 Low Res (31 of 41)

Dangly Bits

And I so love the creative re-purposing of things you see at this show.  Teapots and chalices and bowls and any sparkly bits you can find to dangle down.Sorticulture June 2016 Low Res (24 of 41)

Trucking Along

They went that a-way!Sorticulture June 2016 Low Res (29 of 41)

Ornaments on house plants.  How cool is this?Sorticulture June 2016 Low Res (25 of 41)

And the Sunlight Pierced Through the Haunted Forest

And thankfully, this one came out beautifully!  At least I think so.  I do love this tree!Sorticulture June 2016 Low Res (36 of 41)

If the Houses Could Talk!

Nooo!  We won't talk!  What happens in these walls stays in these walls!  Sorticulture June 2016 Low Res (30 of 41)

My New Craft Studio

Web Design Applicant

I have absolutely NO idea what kind of spider this is, but she was very determined not to be moved from the door of the new craft studio.  I think she wanted an invite inside to come and do the web design for the studio.  I had to tell her that I was going to do that as well myself and send her on her way.  I do hope she took the hint and doesn't come back.20160709_162338

Studio 1

Not bad for a start.  Needs a lot of organizing still, but will be a fun place to play.20160709_173553

Studio 2

All the necessities have been brought.  Coffee pot that can make either coffee or hot water for tea.  Ohhh, must bring some bag tea out here as well.  Tarot decks on the shelves for creative inspiration.  Not I need to unload the fabric from the bins to put in the shelves.

Studio 3

Okay, there is a lot of bins that still need to be dealt with.  But, all in good time.  All in good time.20160709_173624

Studio 4

This is going to be FUN!!!  Only thing missing, is MUSIC!  And that is coming soon.20160709_173637

Just Add Peeps!

View 1

Well, I finally got one of my projects off my list for the year.  I finished my fire pit!!!  And no, that is not a compost fence inside it.  Its a steel cage thing my old next door neighbor gave me to keep yard cutting together for burning.  Its a mini towering inferno!20160708_165233

View 2

There is a very interesting rock that i Place in the lower left that has a hollow out section.  Not sure what I will use it for.  Maybe a waiting room for the Peeps just before being sacrificed.20160708_165220

View 3

I'm thinking I need to add a rebar stand with a cross bar for hanging a cauldron pot over the fire.

Next up, Finishing the Craft Studio.  Then digging up the garden areas.  Woot!

 

Studio

Studio 1

My studio is starting to come together nicely.  Art desk faces out the front of the house so I can watch the birds and furry critter in the yard.  Studio 6 June 2016

Studio 2

The area is being populated by many of my plush critter population.  I figure they will provide inspiring smiles.  And the stereo is hooked up so I can rock out while making art.  And if neighbors on walks are paying attention, possibly entertainment.  *grin*
Studio 7 June 2016

Looking out my Artroom Window

The teepee outside the window is one of the suet feeders.  Will probably remain empty for a while now as it is getting warmer and it will just make a drippy mess which I am sure the critters will enjoy, but will go through an entire suet cake in a day.Studio 4 June 2016

The full moon!  Alas, all I had was the little camera to get a picture of it.  It was lovely though!
