Artsy Fartsy Friday~~~Whirligig


 

           "A whirligig is a device, moved by the wind, which whirls and turns around on its pivot. It's a working or playing figure mounted on a chassis, powered by wind-driven propellers, arms, etc. The entire "weathervane" turns with the wind's direction." Quote from The Artist Garden


I found these on You tube and fell in love with the clever designs. I'm trying to convince my hubby into making one for our yard. My very favorite is the last one called "Where's my supper" Please enjoy this weeks ART.

  1. These are so cool! May favorite is Kid Wash in the first one! Although the Newton one is really good, and rather complex!

  5. I loved the "Where's my supper?" best. Can relate to an impatient husband! The creator enjoyed making this; you can hear it in his voice.

  8. My husband is quite crafty as well. I can't let him see these or else he'll want to try to make one, and my basement will never get cleaned up.
    PS: Joanne, I'm so proud of you sticking to this diet! I love hearing about your progress! Wayne started last week, and I can't believe how much weight he's already lost...stupid men, everything is so easy for them! As for having the ice cream, hey! It's ok to have those treats. I read somewhere that's it's actually good to have a couple of treats a week to "shock" your metabolism. Tomorrow I'm going to "shock" mine with something in a creamy white sauce!

  9. My husband and I will often say, "I'm not dead yet" in that high pitched voice the Not-dead-yet old man used in the Monty Python sketch. It's my favorite MP thing, except for Deja Vu. Would love one of those gadgets. This is probably the most fun blog post I've read from anyone in a while!
