Joseph, Oregon a great little art town

Joseph, Oregon a great little art town

We have left Oregon, and are in Idaho waiting for our art show this weekend in Sun Valley. Oregon is a beautiful state and we loved everywhere we went. There are old small towns where the buildings that were built in the late 1800’s are still being used today. The history, and the sheer beauty made it a great trip, and we will definitely go back. We spent a few days in Joseph, Oregon. Someone, somewhere, told us it is a great little art town, and it is. There are 2 or 3 bronze foundries there, and several art galleries. We were told there are numerous artists that live in this small town of 1000. The main street is packed with cute shops, galleries, and places to eat or drink. There are large bronze sculptures everywhere, and the town prides itself on the art walk that is there for all to see and enjoy.

How to make a dog coat

How to make a dog coat

On Saturday, I did a post on Roxy the traveling dog, on how to make a cozy wool coat, or capote for your dog. I had posted some pictures on Roxy’s facebook page of her in her capote, and had some comments asking how to make one. So I did something I have never done before, I tried to explain the steps in making the coat. I am not a person who sews, so this is a pretty easy project to do.

So take at a look at the post on Roxy the Traveling dog. And If you would rather just buy one, I can make a custom one for your dog.

Artsy Fartsy Tuesday-Kelly Magleby and replica Anasazi pottery

Today’s Artsy Fartsy artist makes replica Anasazi pottery. Kelly follows the same techniques that the Anasazi’s used to create her wonderful pottery. The look and feel of these pieces is like artifacts I have seen in museums. This bowl below is incredible, and one of my favorites.

Kelly has shared her technique, and some information about herself and her art.
