A mix of photography, recipes, personal thoughts, faith, and lots of family stuff, but not necessarily in that order.

"Chairs gone wild"

While on Vacation this week we visited a beautiful park in Spicer MN.
We were delighted to find this display of hand painted Adirondack chairs.

This is a summer project sponsored by the Beautification/design committee, 
it's called "Chairs gone wild"
15 area artist were given unpainted chairs to design,
 they are being displayed throughout Spicer this summer. 
At the end of the summer they will be auctioned off
 to help with the cities beautification project.
 Any extra money will help fund  "Music in the Park"
 which will take place the summer of 2015.

Here are just a few of these beautiful chairs that we saw.
 A beautiful "Up North" scene

 Love this one, there is a bible verse inscribed on one of the arm, so bright and beautiful!

 The TV guide and doilies are painted in place....it looked so real

 Simple and summer-like

another view, with beautiful Green Lake in the background

The playground was off to the left, we had a great time there with the grands
 "Wild cat cove"
