and close ups .....
Aren't they the cutest ever? :)
Here are my charms for the swaps....
My other Roadside Attraction featured a favorite place we use to visit on our way to Palm Springs. Along side the freeway stood two large dinosaurs - a Brontosaurus and a Tyrannosaurus. This photo was taken when Kyle was about 4 I think. He LOVED dinosaurs and could identify any pictures of them you showed him and tell you all about each one. His favorite bedtime book was a Dinosaur Dictionary... go figure :) But I do wish I still had that book since Sammy is showing the same interest now. He'd love it too.
From what I've read about the dinosaurs in the desert, it seems someone has bought the property and now has it set up as a little park (that you have to pay admission to) and added more dinosaurs so it's not quite the funky dinosaurs just sitting off the freeway in the desert. Still would probably be cool to go see if you're in the area.
These cute little hamburgers were my contribution for 'Picnic Time' - they were also made with Polymer Clay. That stuff is great! So easy to use. I definitely recommend trying it if you haven't done so already. There has been some concern over it's safety since you have to cure it by cooking it. The companies that make it ensure the fumes are non toxic if cured as directed, not letting it get over a certain temperature. Just to be safe, I bought a toaster oven at a thrift shop and use an oven thermometer. Since our weather permits year round use of the lanai, I also cook it outside. On the mainland I used a dedicated casserole dish and just used our kitchen oven. That worked fine too.
Hope you had fun looking at these charms :)
