Hooray Kristin!!

Kristin was my first and only friend who guessed where that sculpture was prior to being at the Lawrence Arts Center--in our backyard! Okay, not really right in our backyard, but certainly within view of our bedroom window!

We never did figure out what it was or why it was there, but about a month ago when we were giving some friends a tour of the house, we pulled up the blinds in our bedroom to show them the bizarre sculpture and it was gone. A few weeks later Chad and I were driving downtown and both of our jaws both dropped open when we went past the arts center. Our personal backyard sculpture (shown here at its previous home) is now famous!

Unfortunately, I don't really even remember what white elephant gifts Chad and I came away with a few weeks ago, so I don't even know yet what prizes Kristin will get to choose from (Beth, we are unfortunately not in possession of the famous painting). The good news is, she'll be at our house tomorrow night so she can pick what she wants out in person--that is, if I can actually remember what I did with our treasures!

Hooray! I'm kind of sad that you don't get to enjoy the statue at home anymore! :)

I don't need a prize...but I AM excited about pizza and football tonight. Thanks for having us over, friend!

It's like the traveling gnome of the art world!

That statue was the only reason we bought the house. We're moving.

I was wondering where the sculpture had gone. I noticed it gone a while before Christmas. I thought maybe it had been a neighbor had done it for fun and maybe to make neighbors wonder. What I really would like to know what it was made of? I think it is time for an art visit on campus. mom
