In my blog I plan to chat about nature, crafts, baking, gardening, beekeeping, family, and whatever else seems appropriate at the time. Sit back, relax, and enjoy!

Artsy Stuff in Brown County

 So much going on this week, and I know I missed Ripple Tuesday....Winston was more important....anyway, I want to tell you one more thing about Brown County, Indiana.  Nashville, Indiana started out as an Artists Colony, and it is still a very artsy place.  This "tree" is along the sidewalk...made out of license plates.  Art is different for everyone.
 You see doors with hand forged hardware.
 We spent a couple of hours listening to these guys play guitar and sing.  They played a lot of 70's music so we really enjoyed it.
And if you're wondering what this guy is doing....
 He uses a chainsaw to carve things out of trees.  Like this life sized horse,
and this bear.
 And this bear reminded me of Buttons.  She keeps going into "the bush" and there are bears in there!  She hears them!  Making lots of noise....rustling trees and such. 
And I keep telling her to get outta there.  She reassures me that she'd never go in if it was anything but a black bear.  That they only have black bears there!  What?!?!!  I don't care what color that bear is, girl, you run!
This is why!!!

  1. Oh You made me laugh out loud you are funny I told you I will not get eaten by a bear I do not smell pretty when I go to the bush I do not shower till I get back so I smell like the tree or maybe even the bear so they will leave me alone.:) I am kidding or am I?
    I am glad to see your sense of humour coming back I know it has been a hard week.
    Just one thing to tell you NEVER run from a Black Bear make yourself look big and scary you know like Freddy Kruger (I know those movies scare me).

    I know you probably had a lot of fun I know I would have there. B

  2. Hi Cindy Bee, What a interesting place. I love the door and the Bear was huge. I think it's fun to think outside the box.

  3. Cindy, I love Brown County and Nashville. My girls will always have good memories of our times spent there in the fall. I do admire the artistic talent of making some of that chainsaw art. Take care, Smiles, Susie

  4. I must get to this town...looks like such a fun day!!!
    now to convince the hubs we need to drag the kidlets there.

  5. Art IS different for everyone. That's kind of cool isn't it?

    Love the bear.
