Color Carnival: Bowling Ball Art Garden

If you haven't discovered your local Freecycle.com community, you should check it out. It's sort of like Craigslist, only everything is free and thus recycled. Everyone we've met--whether we are giving or receiving--has been very nice and interesting.



We picked up some sliding glass doors from Freecycler Judy so we can build a solar powered water distiller and produce our own drinking water from our neighbor's sulfurous water while our well is dry. She was making mosaics on bowling balls...



...and displaying them in her garden in front of her house. She started with a few, but after someone told her they were tacky, she put out even more! I thought it was an artful use of discarded items, and perfect for Color Carnival. Thanks for the glass, Judy!

For more color, visit Color Carnival!

I've been a freecycle member for a while now, never given or gotten a thing, but I like reading through to see what's changing hands around here. Love, love, love the bowling balls!

those disc (?) on the ball, what are they made of? Very pretty. Do they reflect light too?

Those are very nice... I would display them in my yard and actually they are quite expensive to buy at the store... :)
