Retired engineer with a bandsaw and an empty tree stump in the front yard - what could go wrong? Here is a display beginning with the latest installation.
Begging for Something
I repurposed my Pandemic Heart. This piece will stay up for a while!
In honor of the care givers
A visit to Nashville's Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum gave me the inspiration. Junk in my basement gave me the materials.
A variation of Bernar Venet's "Angles".
I enjoyed making this - note wine bottles. Art with a puzzle.
Could not find little white gloves so I had to make them too. Lots of felt here.
"Melts in the Hand"
I originally wanted to build a nest but could not find materials. I was surprised at what I found in the box when I took it down after three months on the stump.
"Big Bird Front"
"Big Bird Side"
No glue used and all pieces are unattached, but there is a trick.
I finally found something to do with all of the packing peanuts I've saved over the years - stuffed hats with them.
"Hats Off To Christmas"
Found the hat at Christmas Tree Shop and everything else fell in place.

I had these round rocks left over from a landscaping project many years ago but never knew what I would do with them.... voila!
I admit, I just threw this together with stuff I had in the attic. But I was pressured.
As my first display, I learned everything must be fastened down. Between the wind and the squirrels, I was constantly restumping pumpkins.
Walking around the neighborhood the other day I spotted this yard. Ooooooooooooooooooooh.
