The Bead Tree

This tree at the Hasting Museum, which they hid down in the “basement” had the most interesting ornaments of any of the other trees.  The ornaments were either decorated or made from beads.

I do not need another craft, especially one that requires handling tiny beads and thin wires.  The Midwest Beaders should be proud of their beautiful work.

The Carpenters Tree

I do not know the official name of this tree at the Stuhr Museum, but I am calling it the Carpenters Tree.  It gets a special mention because of the uniqueness of the decorations.

At first, all you really see is Home Deport cards.  If you look closers, you will see ornaments made from nails and screws.

 

Also, on the tree is wood panels each paint with a different design.

Klingon Adventures – Part 2

I am not a Klingon.  I did not marry a Klingon, but my sister did.  Over the rIntaH DIS (past year)  Kur’Den and his be’nal (wife) ‘u’ leng (traveled the universe) looking for qaD (challenges).  Upon their visits to jISop Daq ‘ej leS yoS (places to eat and areas of rest) they ta mIllogh (recorded pictures) of belmoH poch (pleasant plants) and chaH Daqvo’ targhHom (transmitted them back to me).

Here are a few of the belmoH poch:

I took the flower pictures and Kur’Den’s official photo and made him a plaque.  Below is Kur’Den, Tuq BelmoH Yotlh (Clan Pleasant Pastures)!

Yes, he did send me a human version of the sign.
