We spent the weekend doing a little of this and a little of that. I think photos will be the most helpful because surely words alone will not be sufficient.
It was a quick trip up to the mountains – Asheville, NC and a visit with our daughter. She showed us her first attempt at a lampwork pendant.
Here’s a size relationship photo.
Sebastian has longed to meet her cat but now I think he’s having second thoughts. The caption for this photo is: “What do you mean he’s not lunch?”
Captured this photo somewhere in our travels Saturday.
Walking along the hilly streets of Asheville – a sidewalk that has seen better days, but can’t you just see what it once was?
This sunflower had to be at least a foot wide and the stem seems to indicate it would appreciate a little assistance.
My favorite window of the bead shop there.
A street performer at the festival . . .
and down the way, another one.
Now for some vehicles – I mean I really couldn’t pass these up.
The bottle cap covered one.
This next one was an interesting car – from the top luggage carrier
to the side panels
it seemed as if everyone had to take a closer look.
For something in stark contrast, a mobile art lab. Our daughter may be working here when it hits the road from time to time. The thing is I’m just now wrapping my head around the fact that she welds – welds pieces of sheet metal – with a torch and a mask and all that. Now it looks like my girl might be driving this on occasion.
Finally, Sebastian saw these lit up diodes and became instantly inspired. He decided with a bit of help he could be a firefly. It was a really good idea until he decided he was tired and the tape had to come off. He’s learning.
