Crackedpots and wine on a stick!

What 'better fun', on a rainy Tuesday....take the day off and go to 'Crackedpots' 12th annual art show at Mcmenamins Edgefield.
All the art displayed and for sale must be made out of 80% recycled material.
Look like anybody we know? :)
The perfect Oregon day. 65 degrees and drizzling.
We stop at the outdoor pub and have lunch in the rain, by the fire!
Then do some more looking. Really loved the dog with the cheese grater nose, rain gutter legs, colander hips and cookie press eyes!

Dad loves the silverware bugs.
Metal high heels
toaster becomes dog
bike becomes table

Mom can't resist buying this puppy purse, made from old fabric.

So, we try a little recycling art!!
Washing wine bottles in the pool....
I'm not seeing the artist's vision...
Hmmmmm....We shall call it 'Wine on a Stick'
"Better keep your day job, Mom"...BOL


  1. How fun and funky was this outing? Love the pics!

  2. That sure looks like lots of fun!! Did you say 65 degrees? We are on our is hot here!! Lots of love, Debbie & Holly

  3. Hi Wyatt! Hmmm the husky window kinda looks like Phantom from the OP pack! Heehee! Hey would you mind if I put your racial profiling is wrong button on my blog?


  4. I LOVE the Purse your mom got!!
    I'm thinkin that your Wine on a Stick thingy... has to Grow on you. I actually Like it.

  5. Wow, that looks like such a fine thing to do on a rainy Oregon day.

    And We like the Wine on a Stick thingy.

    Very colorful and shiney


  6. What a fun place to go see! I loved all the cool artwork! I think we could be happy decorating our whole house from that place.

    There's somebody near us who has a wine bottle tree, but they just keep adding random bottles to it and it looks really cool!


  7. Wow what a fun outing!

    Hey if tennis balls can grow on trees why not wine for the hoomans?

    woos, Tessa

  8. It is amazing all the pawesome thing you can create by recycling, right?
    Kisses and hugs

  9. My mum liked the flowers! I hope they changed your pool water after they washed their dirty ol' bottles in there Wyatt!!?

    The wine on the stick is kinda cute, I think?

    Tail Wuggles, Rubie.

  10. That is some cool art! Mama's brother lives in Cali and he sometimes sends us pieces of art from the shops there, that people have made from recycled things. We love that!

  11. What a neat post. So many clever ideas! We just love the mosaics!

    Love ya lots
    Maggie and Mitch

  12. I love the toaster dog! Mom loves the high heel, of course.

  13. We aren't so sure about that wine bottle tree but all the others are so unique and interesting. Of course, we love that Siberian one - handsome pup.

    Woos ~ Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

  14. Wow! You have LOTS of talented and creative artists where you live. We are totally loving all of it! Thanks for sharing! Your Mom's puppy purse is adorable and we think the wine on a stick is perfect! Plus, you can change out bottle colors with the seasons. Genius!

    The Road Dogs

  25. The show is hilarious. Good ideas.

  26. It looks like great fun!

    Nubbin wiggles,

  27. Love it!

    Wyatt, you should be more encouraging with regard to your mom's artistic escapades (or you'll find yourself in the dog house with no treats!)

    Happy, Waggin' Tails, FUREVER!
    Stumpy and me

  28. Wyatt,
    That art show looks like a great idea for recyclers. Love Mom's Wine stick.
    Pretty colors.

  29. Been loving Wyatt and all the gardening - your flowers are always beautiful! Never got the wine tree thing!

    We are giving you the Versatile Blogger Award!

  30. OMG, I love recycled stuff - especially those shoes! I am pretty sure my mom would break her neck if she tried to walk in those!

    Your pal, Pip

  31. Hey Wyatt!
    Wow, what a pawesome event! Great way to recycle and entertain at the same time. Cool the toaster pup!! Very fun.
    Grr and Woof,
    Sarge, COP

  32. Cool stuff! You Mom always has neat ideas, Wyatt. I love that doggy purse too!

  33. My granny decorated her "veranda" (small patio) at her assisted living home with blue wine bottles. One man's treasure is another man's junk... or is it the other way around?

    I'm all packed and ready to go. Oregon is in my top 3!

  34. I'm with you on the dog with the cheese grater nose!

  35. Hi Wyatt! We think that we would like to come and visit is WAY too hot here!!! Love all of this cool art...the wine on a stick is kinda neat!! Love your mama's bag! Those were pretty funky looking animals...but our favorite was the bike table! xoxo Chloe and LadyBug

    Waggin at ya,

  37. That was really cool, im with your dad I loved the silverware bugs those where awesome. Here in austin Texas there is a motto called "Keep Austin Weird" and since we are a very big artist town there are tons of art people here who do stuff like this and decorate and display in their yards all over austin this reminded me of it! Thanks for sharing!
