Magical Places

So we went on a little trip this weekend and visited many of our favorite places. I could hardly wait to share one of the most magical places I have ever been in my life....Dr Evermore's Sculpture Park. If you take highway 12 from Baraboo to Sauk City...which is a pretty magical drive in itself through the Baraboo hills....you will see one of the best junk shops on the planet Delaney's. It is just one of those places you have to see to understand. We found the most amazing tables for only $50 each...we bought 3. As you stroll through the outdoor isles of bins of junk you come upon this amazing sculpture park. It was so much fun to see Molly's face as we approached the gianourmous bug made from salvaged junk. We were mesmerized and took so many pictures. It was wonderfully overwhelming and made me want to go home and make stuff! Unfortunately the artist recently had a stroke and isn't able to hang out in the park as much creating. If you ever are in the area please do not miss this place.

On the way to Baraboo driving through Fond Du Lac is another amazing sight. An 88 turbine wind farm. Now I know many oppose the look of these but to me it was fantastically surreal and exciting. I hope to see more of them soon!

All of this was just a few hundred miles from home! Get out and explore and you too will find magic right in your world!
