Crazy busy week with a fun filled ending!
Yesterday, Saturday, we journeyed over to McMinnville to watch our, almost 17 year old granddaughter, participate in the Oregon High School Equestrian Teams District meet.
This was the first time she and her horse, Oreo, have been a part of such a meet. The event was spread over four days and included 25 high schools. Here, she and Oreo are doing an event called "reining".
Another Granddaughter and her two girls came to watch, too, and afterwards we were off for some shopping and lunch (after a little cuddle with Ben).
"Mac", as it is commonly referred to, is a small collage town with a great downtown shopping district. There is an incredible fabric store and an art store "to die for".....not to mention some great restaurants. All of this is located in the heart of Oregon's wine country.
A while back, I bought some material that is used to carve your own rubber stamps. I've made stamps before using just an X-acto knife but I decided I wanted to get a set of carving tools....I found a set at the "to die for" art store and came home and carved these.
Some times, mistakes make for some cool results. In the bird stamp you can see where I drew a different style bird on the material first, then changed my mind, and carved the larger bird. Now, I have a bird within a bird....a weird concept....but I like it.
Well, now, that was fun!
But, wait there's more, I said I've been busy....on the way home we visited a flea market. For a "buck", I found a cool little terrarium.....all white and shabby with a pointed roof-style top.
Guess what, getting out of the car the top fell off onto the garage floor and smashed to pieces......shoot! Time to make some lemon-ade, so here it is................full of shells, not plants.
I'd love it if you choose to become a follower and left a comment! Enjoy......
