Mini Time Machine 

One of my favorite places to visit in Tucson, Arizona is The Mini Time Machine.   If you like miniatures this is your place!  I went a few years ago and then again last Fall.   It seems like they have added more exhibits than the first time I visited.  They also have temporary exhibits which all look interesting.

The artwork is amazing and how they make those tiny little items is beyond me!

They have doll houses, themed rooms, holiday exhibits, and tiny furniture!

They have specially made doll houses, such as this teapot…

One of my favorites was is these ghosts in honor of Halloween …

Until tomorrow, LAF

App of the Day…

I love playing with my photographs!  Anything to make them better, stranger, different or just fun.   

One of the photo Apps I like a lot is called SuperPhoto.  My favorite filter is “Smooth” and the following are done with that filter.  As you can see it works really well with flowers and nature!   But, there are so many other filters you can use in this App.  

I hope you enjoy them as much as me!

Lights on the Mountain! 

Not sure what my problem is every Christmas, but I can’t get my blogging thoughts together, may be that I am too busy, thinking of buying gifts, etc, but I haven’t done anything this December to date!  

I thought I would try and get back into it by posting some beautiful lights.  Not Christmas lights, but lights nonetheless.  

The lights in this post, however, are from the Desert Botanical Gardens exhibit of Bruce Monro Field of Lights.  These were probably taken last year and are no longer an exhibit at the DBG at this time.  It truly was beautiful.  

The lights changed colors constantly thru their fiber optics. 

If you ever get to see. Bruce Monro exhibit don’t hesitate!  

Until tomorrow, LAF

Upcycled Art!

As I’ve posted before my husband, Bob, is an amazing artist.  He has started to work on some upcycled projects using cardboard and other recycled materials.  One of these pieces is a reproduction of the 57 Chevy front-end.  Also, he is working on 1942 Harley Davidson motorcycle, mostly out of cardboard.  The motorcycle sculpture is still in progress.

Check them out below…   If you have any interest in purchasing these sculptures, get in touch with us through my contact page.
