You Call This Paper?






Allen & Petty Eckman - Paper Sculptures

I have been curiously absent from the blogging world. Lots of being busy but mostly lack of internet connection. A lightning bolt struck the water tower across the street and took out our internet access and cables throughout the house. Fortunately, computers are fine..just a lot of fried wiring. I have to say, it was beautiful to watch the storm..kind of makes you feel quite miniscule in the scheme of life! So for a Friday, I'm sharing some incredible paper sculptures. You read that right..paper! Now if I had only known this when I was spitting paper wads in school...

Have a great weekend all!

Paper??? Really ??? Mercy. Another storm lover here, glad you didn't fry. Had a couple of emails wondering where I'd gone. Been enjoying a family visit. I come back to see that google/blogspot are acting all funky & weird. Too bad I didn't miss that.
