What to Do with Your Weekend Flotsam and Jetsom

(please click to enlarge.. bigger is better for these!)

These pieces are by a local Santa Cruz artist, Rocky Wagers from a show he had at the Felix Kulpa gallery where my son used to take guitar lessons. (We miss our guitar teacher, Isaac. We hope he comes back to town. If anyone is nearby, and has a recommendation for another guitar teacher.. we are interested!)

The artist owns one of the local Antique Stuff stores, "Mr. Goodies"(my personal fave), so presumably has access to a lot of super fabulous semi-broken random articles, which he puts together in amusing ways.

This one is called the Garden Party. I must have the invitation around here somewhere. They look like my friends!


Anyway, they reminded me of the impending Spooky Holiday and I though you might enjoy.







I leave you with this..
Maybe, if properly sorted, there is no real trash after all.


Now off I go to play in San Francisco with my son, all freshly 12 years old.
Hurray.

Love these!! I really think that it is true, there is no real garbage, so many things I have thrown away or given away, I wish I had back, because I could make such cool things with them. On the other hand, I could end up as one of those little old ladies with narrow paths through their houses, all the rest being piles of STUFF they were saving to make something out of. Since my husband is just as much of a packrat, we could be in serious danger of that, if we don't occasionally let some of the stuff go...
Love your blog, and your son is SO CUTE with his grill!

I realize I am 3 years late, I found your awesome blog while looking for online pics of Rocky's art, as he will be showing at my shop in December (2010). I love your photos! Permission to use the first one in my ad?
Thanks!
