  1. It might be, but then again look how many treats he gets to eat after they all fall down! Add to that the dog is a golden retriever, they will eat until they burst so he would be extra happy!

  2. Reblogged this Erik, on the way to TopLad and commented:
    That’s really impressive. I can’t help but to share

  3. This takes patience and ingenuity – the card and scratch card are really amazing. I like the detail of the playing cards – wonder what keeps the cards from collapsing. Balancing rocks is also cool. a great symbols to remind myself to keep my life in balance. Now I would not like to be the one who bumps the table and all the pennies go crashing on the floor – all that work!

  4. Back then, if I could get my hands on anything in fairly large numbers, it invariably got stacked into some design or the other 😀
    Playing cards were a big hit initially… others include phone cards, soda bottle lids and stones – I am into gardening. Pebbles and stones were the most beautiful and useful.

  5. The wood stack is amazing. You wouldn’t want to dismantle it. Warm for the winter or artistic and freezing. Tough choice. I’d like to think they make a new one every year.

  6. That dog is awesome. I had a golden retriever, and there is no way he’d have the patience and discipline to allow me to stack biscuits on his face. He does look a little smug though.

  7. The wood is beautiful, but not funny to choose, which one to bring to the fireowen… They are all amazing. The dog has got a very good training, funny training. Thanks for sharing.

  8. What, they are not paying you. I get so much per blog. I have made enough to go to the store and buy a free cup of coffee. I will talk to the owners and put you on my plan. Brothers united, like Siamese Twins.

  9. Thanks! I have to admit I didn’t think anyone would ever want to read my blog at all, but now days with people like yourself I really feel that I can make someone smile everyday and that means more to me than anything. Lets face it, we don’t do if for the money!

  10. Awesome! I have to give it to that dog with those biscuits. That is some training there. I myself could *never* do it. I just couldn’t. XOXO – Bacon

  11. That was pretty amazing! I particularly love the stacked wood feature – We could so do this instead of standing back and tossing them haphazardly into the shed….. BUT….. imagine then having to choose which blocks to take to the fire – eeek!

  12. Beautiful… love it!
    😀
    I love stacking art! Used to indulge in it a lot two decades ago… I had forgotten what a delightful, meditative process it is.
    Thanks for reminding me!

  13. Amazing pictures, yet again. I loved the stacked wood.. wow is all I can say.. Thank you for the post.. Take care and stay happy….
