The Cracked Pots Show

I met my friend Sha at The 12th annual Cracked Pots Show on Wednesday at Edgefield in Troutdale. She was doing volunteer work at the Master Gardener's booth and when she was done with her shift, we had a lovely lunch and then wondered around the gardens and looked at all the creative items that these talented vendors had to offer. Everything has to be made with recycled items and the idea is to show you how to be creative with things that would otherwise end up in a landfill.
One of the most funny and unusual items was the animals made out of milk jugs. A pig is shown here, but the fish was unreal.
There was a lot of garden art made from glass items. Seems like a lot of people are into that.

It's always so fun to see what people can come up with and of course, it's all very tempting. Thanks Sha for inviting me to join you! Time spent with you is delightful...

Sounds like that was a fun show! Were the spheres you show decorated bowling balls? A lady who sells at our local Farmer's Market does mosaics on old bowling balls. We have one in the garden.
Fun! Loved the milk jug pig!
