Gwen Petersen: In a Sow’s Ear 8-8-11

Summertime: Where, in darn near any community you can name, yard sales and craft shows proliferate like fleas on a dog, mosquitoes in a swamp or zucchini in a garden. Shopping for treasures or creating artsy-craftsy items to sell can be addictive. But it’s a harmless addiction – mostly.

On a ranch, one can come across many “found” objects which one can turn into craft items which one can then market on Saturday mornings at the Farmer’s Market. And/or in a booth at the 4-H County Fair.

There was the year I made cute owls out of round rocks. I called the collection: “Orry-Eyed owls.” Since our place bordered the Yellowstone River, I had more than an ample supply of stones and pebbles.
