the scenic route

oh, turkey day was fantastic wasn't it? i hope everyone had a wonderful thanksgiving no matter what they ended up doing that day. this is mine and mister's favorite holiday and we had a great time except the poor mister was and still is sick and i'm taking it easy as i feel a little achy but we had the best relaxing weekend being the biggest couch potatoes and there was no other way i would have liked it. sometimes you just need to be a couch potato...

for turkey day we headed up north to a town called sebastopol which is about an hour north of where we live. it is where the mister and i are from and it is always so nice to go back home :) once we got to town we took the "scenic route" to his sisters house.

the street is called florence street and it is where artist patrick amtiot and his wife brigitte laurnet live with their kids. they do AMAZING sculptors that they make out of junk and then paint over them. the husband does the welding and the wife the painting...what an awesome team them make! their artwork is scattered all over sebastopol and some of them are permanent while others move about until they find a home. a lot of the sculptures have been there since the mister and i met and a lot are more recent. it is always nice to see an other artist thrive...here is the some of the work on florence street 

this is partick & brigette house


this week i am on craft mode. lots of things to finish before saturday! and hopefully will get my camera in the mail from bart!!!!!!!!!!

  8. Those statues are amazing! I would have tried to inherit one... i.e., stuffed it in the car without anyone noticing... **wink wink**
