Christmas Decorating with Scrap Yard Finds

When I spotted a birdcage at the scrap yard some months ago, I didn’t want to show my excitement but I was surely thrilled. Sometimes the business owners put a firm price on certain items but the birdcage was sold for the scrap value at about 1.50$. It’s perfect for seasonal decorations. For Christmas I just put some baubles and other decorative pieces inside and a silver birdie on top. Now we turn to another of my multiple Christmas personalities, lol. I do love the rather girlie birdcage…

What's Your "Thing"?

Do you have a "thing"? You know...something that you do that brings you joy and peace. Something that really gets the creative juices flowing and gives you that rush of adrenaline that you can't wait to start and don't wan to stop?

Recycled metal sculpture at the Mendocino Art Center

Mendocino is a cool artsy town about 10 miles south of Fort Bragg on the Pacific Coast. The town has the feel of gracefully aging hippies. We visited there one Sunday morning in May 2010 on the way back to San Francisco. We walked around town and checked out several galleries - but we spent most of our time at the Mendocino Art Center - really interesting stuff there. Definitely a place to go back again and spend more time!
