Watermelon Birds?!

Nothing beats the heat like a slice of watermelon…

These weird birds made their “appearance” for the letter, “W”:

They are wacky Watermelon birds!

I used watermelon images from my Bon Appétit magazine and painted their beaks with watercolor. A few details were added with a pencil, black micron pen and white gel pen.

Carla Sonheim is offering FREE art videos for Kid’s Art Camp this week.  Each day is a short video.  I always enjoy participating and seeing what others create.  Any age can sign up.  I encourage you to check it out at CarlaSonheim.com

These “wild” birds were from lesson one:

I hope you join in the fun… and be sure to have a slice of watermelon!

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

This “odd” couple was inspired by this old photograph:

I hope this post gives you a giggle today… 😃

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!!

Focus On A Floccus

According to Dictionary.com –

Floccus is

  1.  (noun) A small tuft of woolly hairs.
  2. (adjective) Meteorology (of a cloud) having elements in the form of small, rounded tufts.

My version of a Tufted Floccus:

5397D124-F813-400D-94F4-973E9F4B926F

This weird bird often appears to be scowling and yet I think he is only focusing on his next meal… (something I seem to be thinking about a lot lately since I’m trying to loose a little weight!)

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

I hope this bird gives you a smile today…

Cheers! 🙂

P.S.  I imagine you won’t look at tufted clouds without thinking of this weird bird! 😉

 

A Wild Quacker…

There is a saying, “If it looks like a duck, walks like a duck and quacks like a duck, it’s a duck.”

Apparently, this person never heard of Weird Bird Wednesday…

This is a wild Quacker, like a wild card, uh, I mean duck!

YOU get to name it!

That is if you want to play along…

Happy Wild Duck Wednesday!  hehe

Cheers! 🙂

P.S.  No “fowl” language…haha

Goodbye Refrigerator…

Our first fridge has quit,

I feel rather sad…

You kept our food cold,

A long time, I’m so glad!

59517C2E-D067-4C24-A8A8-7FE3FAF9D338

In our first home,

You were shiny, brand new…

When we moved, you became

The garage fridge, thank you!

E1252FBC-F8DE-4830-9865-BC9CC74A1FF5

It seems only fair,

Your photo I share now…

A Gibson – golden edition,

For over 30 years, wow!

D557A418-83CB-4EA7-A8A7-0C9D3AD55B79

Extra food and drinks

I relied on your place…

Filling your shelves,

When I ran out of space!

C818F37F-90B2-4F4B-A6E0-0B2C884367FB

So what will I do?

Without you, oh, my…

I know it will cost us,

Sorry to say, good-bye!

I hope this silly poem gives you a smile today!

A Bandana Banana Bandit

Today’s weird bird was named the Bandana Banana bandit

A11199DF-CF36-4996-B861-45C0DA7ECBF9

Because of its brightly colored “bandana” feathers around its neck.  Living in the tropics, this bird was often caught trying to steal a banana or two!

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

I hope this colorful bird helps brighten your day…

Cheers! 🙂

Piccolo

Piccolo was very proud of her double chins because when she sang, they vibrated and produced the most beautiful sound through the hole in her neck, almost like a small flute… a Piccolo:

Double chins CAN be beautiful!! Lol!

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

Cheers! 🙂

A Heavenly Bird

The Heavenly bird of the “PIE” family:

E8BF2256-8AB7-4B3A-B9D9-D0A7D5562479

I think Chocolate Cream Pie is definitely a slice of heaven! 😉

Do you see any strange animals in the clouds?

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

Cheers! 🙂

 

A Little Silly Fun…

I needed a gift for a “white elephant gift exchange.”  I’m not quite sure where this terminology came from as it has nothing to do with elephants! 😉

To me, it means to re-gift something I received and don’t need or perhaps, give something “creative.”

I decided on a little silly fun this year and created this one-of-a-kind gift!

A0F12315-3A64-4165-883E-8E3106FB5D94

A “Caroler” in a former life that I purchased at a thrift store years ago, I made him into a quirky guy that loves the lake!

It was super fun to create a poem to go with him… I will get to that later in this post.

This silly guy actually moves – his head slowly turns in circles and his right arm moves up and down when he is plugged in to an outlet.  A little weird, I must say!

I started by giving him an old cup for a hat and taped a bird on top.  The bird house came next.  On the back, I added this “key” message (from a candy wrapper):

0528BFCD-BD77-41BB-9CAC-C724A6B90010

He needed a beach towel, so I cut-up an old wash cloth and sewed the outside edges. I used a paper napkin to represent “happy hour” where friends gather to share an appetizer and a drink as you can see in my first photo.

Below, I created a fishing pole from an old paint brush and beads – including a bead for a fish:

E73527D6-534C-4494-AB6D-454F008F1A08

He needed a little summer outfit so I sewed some fabric to give him some pizzazz and cover up that ugly green outfit he was wearing – who says men can’t wear skirts!! Hahaha!

9F7AAC89-F55A-45AB-B852-BD94A0EAC611

I finished him, by adding a Christmas ornament of a chair, a rubber stamp image of an image in the woods and writing a message on the base:

526521FC-C89C-4D8B-8DF6-7C22487FE545

Below is one of the stanzas I wrote for my poem to the song, “Over The River And Through The Woods.”

 

Over the river and through the woods

We look forward to each year…

The memories we make

At this beautiful lake

Are the treasures we hold dear.

I look forward to seeing who receives my creative surprise… I encourage you to “think outside the box” when you give a gift!

Cheers! 🙂
