The test of an adventure is that when you are in the middle of it, you say to yourself, "Oh, now I've got myself into an awful mess; I wish I were sitting quietly at home." And the sign that something is wrong with you is when you sit quietly at home wishing you were out having lots of adventure. -Thornton Wilder

The nice thing about being confused is you get a chance to notice things a lot better than if you knew where you were going.

Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.

Dead Tree Art

The write-up said this was a dead tree on the property and the artist had an idea for it - covering it with balls intended for Christmas decorations. I don't recall ever seeing Christmas decorations the size and shape of ping pong balls in a pale Robin's egg blue before.
There are Christmas lights intertwined so again,like the picket fence, at night it must look very attractive.
More art pieces to come.


  1. Never seen anything like this before. Very creative:))
    Have a nice weekend:)

  2. I love these quirky art posts. We have a friend in SC that had a friend visit from Hawaii. While here, she knitted some yarn around the tree in front of the house. I don't have a picture of it, but it covers about the same area as the ping pong balls.

  3. man, someone's creative! (looks tedious though!). They look like grapes, very cool art!

  4. I never would have thought of that for a dead tree! :)

  5. Brilliant - looks like a piece of coral from a distance.
