falling flowers, master gardener and angel show

Well I think I am almost done making vases for the year.  I have about 28 vases on my etsy shelf.  I keep them separate so I dont confuse myself.. To the left is my shelf of yet to be listed/photographed vases, as well as the bunches in the other photos below (and some others i just didn't bother snapping a picture of today)

I've started making more rebar flowers, but that is slow going as it is obviously a more creative endeavor than cutting pipes and readying them as vases.  This weekend is a 'falling flowers' event at the local art center. I deposited 12 vases with my puzzle flowers/buds and some of tod's bottle cap flowers.  Then on Sunday I will remove some of them and lug about 30 vases to a master gardener gathering in Conroe, Texas that my friend Cynthia has invited me to.  I gather they have talks for the Master Gardeners and this year they decided to set up some tables and offer handmade items for sale.  It's a few hours to show and sell some vases and is inexpensive to partake in.  After that I will start listing these on etsy.  My only other 'event' is the Huntsville "Angel Show' which I participated in last year. (thanks to cynthia once again!)  This year she got some nice postcards made up and we are hoping for an even better turn out than last year!

 So, I'm sure the next 7 weeks will fly by. I'm already planning to make new works for 2011.  I think the vases will take a small rest.  I'd like to do more with pipes and that hinges upon that cold cut tool.  I'm sure Santa wont be able to stuff that into my stocking but we will see.....

Paula you have worked soooo hard! Such an accomplishment to get ahead of yourself on such a big scale. Allow yourself to create arty flowers for the sheer joy of it. You deserve to let your imagination run riot.

Friday New Art Finds.  ha.  I'm posting it early because my blog needs something on it other than ME.   I present to you Louis Pons.  Born in Marseilles, France in 1927 and apparently still going strong.  I have little to no information on this artist, he appears to be elusive on the net.  I recently watched a strange little movie called 'The Gleaners and I' by Agnus Varda.  She had a blip on him and I set to searching for images or information online only to come up with a small wikipedia blip and a few sites containing his work.
No matter, it's enough just to see his work.  This site if you translate it, appears to have the most information of any:
Primary studies at Marseilles, school of the Carthusian monks.
School of the Trades, Endoume, Marseilles. He learns the trade from fitter bu…

dairy delight

I was perusing craigslist and saw this:

Disassembling antique barn..
All interior components that ran dairy farm.
Silo made from Ceramic Blocks. Many different uses for the ceramic blocks.
2 sets Hay hooks.
Cow stantion.
Watering bowls.
Cow dividers.
Louden Hay Dryer app. 1940's
Block and Tackle Pulleys

I started SALIVATING. I checked the site out they linked to and saw it was an antique type store/house and worried they might be off the charts expensive. Not even sure they had what I want, but those clocks and hay shelves I made from the watering bowls and hay dryer equipment are to me, precious materials and I want MORE even if I have to buy them. I'm starting to get excited, so far the emails come back saying yes, they are those bowls that I want. Yes, the picture I emailed showing the hay things I have are indeed what he has. He has about FORTY of the cow bowls at a price I can live with, my one concern is they aren't rusty or crusty enough since the ones I…
