creative

I'm always amazed at how creative people can be.

Kirsten Wicklund completes a crochet or knit project, dips it in porcelain, fires it (which burns away the yarn) and is left with beautiful statues of doiles etc.

The pictures are just beautiful and sorta remins me of the candy dishes full of stale and dusty ribbon candy at my great-grandmom's house. No one was ever allowed to eat the nasty stuff, it was as much a decoration as all the doiles and hummel figurines.

I think this is why I hate knick-knacks.

Anyway, here's the link if you'd like to look.

Geez! I guess EVERYBODY'S grandmother had the gross, dusty candy bowl that nobody ever ate from.

My grandparents also had that candy bowl. My sisters and I tried and tried and tried to get that candy out...actually it was a jar, so it was nigh on impossible to get anything out of that jar.
