Too Much Time on their Hands

Sheesh...what happened to all the time I had on my hands? Pictures of the chaos to come...you actually have to get out of the chaos to present the chaos...

But apparently, others have a wee bit more time on their hands than I do...and there pretty talented too.

This is exactly what happens when you are pretty artistic and have too much time on your hands…











And as if egg blowing and painting weren’t enough…we have these…


And this last one is quite fitting...notice the serene empty simplicity of it? Wait until they move in! It'll look like the scrambled eggs I made when I first tried...egg and shell everywhere!!!
Categorize these under other forms of art that will not last (ice sculptures, sand castle sculptures, outdoor chalk drawings, etc.)

amarilla said...

wow, more time for those hands! who made those? i'm in love.

Beth said...

I admire the creativity but cannot comprehend the patience.
And I've had too many years of being told (and saying), "Eat your food, don't play with it."

cathouse teri said...

Wow.

The Incredible Woody said...

I couldn't do that with all the time in the world.

Dee said...

i guess I should call myself lucky to be talentless and no spare time. There would be fruit peels everywhere.

Roy Scribner said...

Yeah, thanks VE - now I've got that $%#&@ Styx song stuck in my head, LOL!

Kurt said...

Thank you for sharing these.

VE said...

leelee - They are definitely cool looking...until they rot that is

amarilla - Yes, they are very good...but don't leave them on display too long...

beth - Ha! Me too. This was definitely playing with your food!

teri - Exactly!

incredible woody - Yeah, I'd just squander it like usual

dee - You're probably like me...talented enough to eat them...

roy - Wow, that one totally slipped by me...thanks for putting it in MY head now!

kurt - You're welcome...it's the least I could do...and right now doing the least seems to be all I can manage...

Quickroute said...

butchering the poor fruit n veg like that - shocking :-(

VE said...

quickroute - Don't worry...it all rots away!

Michelle Ann said...

The tomato and the cauliflowers are hilarious...

Are the lemons committing some kind of juicide?

Serena Joy said...

Good heavens, that's some imaginative looking food! And some of them are just plain scary. I'd be afraid to show any interest in eating them for fear they'd kill me in my sleep. I like the banana, though.:)

Jeff said...

I have a real problem with songs getting stuck in my head so I put a new widget on my sidebar that shows the latest earbug I'm suffering from. Now thanks to this post, I'll be able to change it.

...and it's ticking away at my sanity...

carlae said...

I have no words....

Alex L said...

Well some ones time has been fruit full... oh, man thats terrible isnt it, I should leave the puns to the experts.

Jacki said...

Wow...I definitly wouldn't have the patience.

But on Martha Stewart the other day there was a 25-year old girl who ran a 6-figure business just from sewing rag dolls and selling them on the internet for $40 each.

So I don't knock stupid or silly ideas anymore.

VE said...

michelle ann - Those lemons...their just sour pusses

sj - But you could count the sheep!

jeff - Glad I could provide you with an obnoxious song tune. I'll keep thinking of new ones.

carlae - I have words...they're just random and jumbled. I could sell you a few...

alex - Ouch. Don't PUNish us like that!

Maureen said...

Cool! Love the watermelon one. Reminds me of Bent Objects...

Alan Smithee said...

Some of these remind me of the films of Jan Svankmajer.

lime said...

wow, if those are actually carved and constructed as opposed to photoshopped i think it's pretty darned impressive!

Yes, my name is Arizona said...

I love these!

Uncivil said...

Is that Michael Phelps in that watermellon?

Diesel said...

I'm going to be seeing that watermelon dude in my dreams.

Megan said...

It's a mad, mad world.

I too like the sheep the best.

Carla said...

I love these pictures, but yes, too much time. Wish I had time for such artistic endeavors.

Sunshine said...

someone has to do it... wish I had the time...

ChrisEldin said...

OMG!! I've seen these before, but they are completely hysterical!!!

I like the orange one. Did the same person do all of these?
:-)

ChrisEldin said...

I didn't know you got married!
Congratulations!!!! Why weren't there any pics?

Beautiful hardwoods. Wishing you two every happiness (will there be lil v's in the future?)
:-)

VE said...

maureen - I bend objects all the time...I don't mean too...I'm clumsy

alan smithee - Who's that? I don't get out much...

lime - I think they're really carved.

arizona - They are fun

uncivil - I think Michael would be the banana one...

diesel - He is kind of ominous, isn't he?

megan - No...it's a mad, mad, mad, world. You forgot one mad! ;)

carla - I know the feeling about time. I can barely keep up my blogging right now

sunshine - I wish I had the skill

chris - I'm not sure if it was the same person. Probably not. Yes...I did get married in July. You're just going to have to get out here more often! ha ha. No more little VE's...there are already two running around and I've been tutored since!!!

sprinkle4 said...

Those are too freakin' cool!! You have inspired my artistic sensibilities once again and I thank you!

padraig said...

That watermelon is oddly creeeeepy.

VE said...

sprinkle4 - Well that is a good thing then...you've got the artistic talent!

padraig - I have never trusted watermelon. You just don't really know whats in them!

colbymarshall said...

I grew up living next door to a Japanese family, and the little girl and I played together often. At our playdates, her mother would carve apples into rabbits and serve them as a snack. A quite impressive (but useless?) talent.

Matt-Man said...

Wow...Those are really clever and well done. Cheers VE!!

Anne said...

The citrus pieces are cool.

Sarah said...

haha some of those were a little scary

VE said...

colby - Impressive...but could she pull a rabbit out of her hat?

matt-man - And we didn't even create them...what's up with that?

anne - Anything you can do with citrus is pretty cool

sarah - Yes, particularly the watermelon one. I just don't trust watermelons...

RED MOJO said...
