A real eye opener to me...University Art Show

Dress Horse
I have my own idea what this is about, what are you thinking?
The apple is my biggest thing, to me it represents the garden of eden when Eve asked Adam to partake of
the forbidden fruit...if it wasn't for that they would still be naked wouldn't they?
This particular horse reminds me of Black beauty, popular, famous.
Dress represents a frilly woman, femininity.
Shellie going to talk to her about what the artist was thinking.

His girlfriends face
This guys is in LOVE right!
I think he should give it to her, but he won't part with his paintings.
Isn't it beautiful!

Bursting at the seams!
Easy to relate to, right!
Pottery house bulging and pouring out its houses contents!

Shellies chicken
She was accepted into the art show with it
It's just not so ordinary and came from a live shot.
This chicken I would not mess with although
its so fluffy you would love to pet it.
I wouldn't!

University art room environment
quite shocking to me.
This was an hour after our earthquake and I know the CEMENT
building was swaying...somehow
I think it always resembles this look.

Steel, cement & paint...not MY kind of working environment
Shellie is very happy there creating.
School has been challenging and has made her expand
beyond what she ever thought.

Their sink...wonder how many years it took to make this abstract piece of art?
What a treat to attend this art show of college students
to be with them and enjoy their art.
A real eye opener to me.
No lie.

It isn't costly...

A poem by Edgar Guest.
Jeni had a great idea and did a good deed
it was to dig out all the antique books hidden away
in our back room
to enjoy!
Does the grouch get richer quicker than 
the friendly sort of man.
Can the grumbler labor better than
the cheerful feller can? 
Is the mean and churlish neighbor any cleverer
than the one
Who shouts a glad "good morning," and then
smiling passes on?
Just stop and think about it. Have you ever
known or seen
A mean man who succeeded, just beccause he
was so mean?
You can bet he didn't win them just because
he was a grouch.
Oh, you'll not be any poorer if you smile along
your way,
And your lot will not be harder for the kindly
things you say.
Don't imagine you are wasting time for others
that you spend:
You can rise to wealth and glory and still pause
to be a friend.

We are Romantic to Rustic
here at the Rose
Where you can always expect the unexpected
in vintage decor and gifts

A romantic paper doll...dressed in 3 D paper design
Created by my daughter Shellie
for an art class at the University.
(Wish window pictures turned out)

Welcome Friends anytime...
hoping to see you this week
