“What is it?” My children asked.
“Are you really going to leave it in the yard?” they asked.
With a smile, I said, “Yes, and maybe I will get a gnome to put right next to it.” (Of I was kidding about a gnome, but don’t mess with my art.)
I then placed my art next to the reindeer with the missing antlers made out of tree stumps.
A few weeks ago, I got in a crafty mood. It’s a rare event for me to get all crafty, but Pinterest had inspired me. The next thing I knew, I was taking old dishes and glass to make bird feeders and yard art. My yard art didn’t turn out like the pictures on Pinterest, but that didn’t matter, because I was proud of my projects. .Sure, my family…they made fun of me, but in my heart I knew my art had deep purpose and meaning, and one day it would be revealed.
“What is it?” That question would haunt me.
Last night, my soul was satisfied and this question was revealed for all to witness.
A squirrel inched down the tree to find the sunflower seeds that I had carefully placed on my art piece that I will now name, “Nature’s Calling.” No longer was my craft project something to be laughed at. No longer would they ask, “What is it?”
Before my eyes, my art transformed into…a perfect squirrel feeder.
The thrill of seeing this unfold right in front of me and my family was like watching a lion chase it’s prey in the Masaa Mara.
My art found purpose!
What is it? I can now firmly say, it’s a squirrel feeder.
I admit, I like quirky things sometimes, simply for moments like this!

I especially love the glassblown yellow bowl on the top. Did you make that?
That’s great 🙂 I love it and the pictures of the squirrel. I want one in my yard now 🙂
