Garden, and Distractions

This was one of those mish mash days, where I had a hard time focusing on one thing.  I'm having a lot of those lately.  So, wanna see what one of those days is like for me.  I started working outside.  Cleaning, organizing, and playing with my garden type stuff.




Remember when I said you don't have to worry about me running out of "stuff"?





This cement squirrel was a greenish color, I've had him inside, outside, almost sold him, changed my mind, left him outside, and decided to make him grey today.





These two cement pieces have quite a few layers on them, and, I'm not quite finished.




I was waiting for something to dry, when I went into the garage.  That's usually when the distractions happen.  I found this chandelier shaped air freshener in one of my boxes while looking for something else.  The scent is long gone, but it's chandelier shaped for crying out loud.  So, I kept it.




Hey, I bet I could make a cute little piece of art with that.  I grabbed a miscellaneous piece of wood,




sprayed it silver, put the little chandie down on it, and did an over spray with black.




Instant art.




Hey, didn't I have another one of those?  Yep, in the same box.



I see more little pieces of art coming.  Um... what was I doing?  Oh yeah, garden stuff.




Maybe later.  What's that behind those boxes in the back of the garage?  Paintings.





Forgot I had this one.



To frame, or not to frame.

What else is lurking in there?



When did I buy these?  Curtain tiebacks.  Hmmmm, may make nice hat stands.



Did you know I dabbled in abstract art?  Yes, I do.  Here's one I painted last year.  Very monochromatic.




What's that underneath?





Oh yeah, I purchased this chalkboard art at a garage sale last year.  Meant to frame it.  What am I going to do with that black piece of molding?  The crackled panel?




Need to do something with these.




Garden?  Nope, starting to rain.  Maybe I'll focus tomorrow.  See ya soon.

  8. Well Rosemary,

    I bet its like Christmas every time you go into your garage. All you have to do is go in there and B~I~N~G~O you can find something to create! I'd be distracted too and would probably do the same thing because if I saw something and thought I could do something with it and didn't do it when I thought of it I'd forget it! HAHA

  36. What a fun post! I felt like I was there with you as you were milling around your workplace. You DO have alot of stuff. No vacay for you now! Ha! Who would've EVER thought of doing what you did with that chandelier air freshener? Who would've ever thought to make a chandelier air freshener in the first place?! So many questions. Send some of that rain our way. We were supposed to get some today, but only got a sprinkle. The pollen needs to be washed away.
