Outdoor Wednesday

First I want to thank everyone that left the sweet comments on my miniature greenhouse post. After the holidays I hope to add more to it and also work on the San Franciscan doll house. That is the doll house I had to walk away from for a while, because I got frustrated trying to put the flooring in.

I am linking to "Outdoor Wednesday" hosted by Susan @ http://asoutherndaydreamer.blogspot.com/ again this week. Thanks Susan for hosting this weekly event. My contribution this week is 3 more of the beautiful horses.

Hope you enjoyed seeing more of these beautiful horses. Be sure to visit Susan to see what she and the others have to share this week.
Rained off and on all day yesterday, and a very gray, dreary, chilly day today. Hope it warms up for the rest of the week with sunshine - I am knee deep in leaves again and need to do something about it.
Hope you are having a great week.

Love those horses. In Erie, we had fish that different companies paid to have painted in unique ways.

The candy bar horse is my favorite.

It's so much fun when a city has these art animals here and there for everyone to enjoy. Happy O.W. to you...

Love the horses...especially the one covered in candy bar wrappers. (Hmmm...can't you just taste the chocolate!)
Here in Clearwater, we had decorated sea turtles. They were adorable!

These are amazing! I visited Chicago and saw cows done like this! They were scattered around the city and fun to come upon them!

Beautiful horses, I would like to ride around and see them all too.

I just love these! I'm so happy you've been sharing them with us. I think my favorite is Mari Posa, how fun! It's wonderful that your town is supporting major works of outdoor art installation, especially in this economy. Happy Outdoor Wednesday. Kathy

Hello Glenda,

This is my first visit to your interesting blog.

Just think: Cows on Parade, Chicago stared all of this in 1999. Thanks for sharing. I hope you have a great day.

neat photos -- the horses remind me of the moose that are in Park City, UT. Only I think these were much more nicely done.

Glenda, I've never seen the one with candy wrappers. How creative people can get with those horses! That one would make me hungry all of the time. laurie

What a fun expression of art. The candy wrappers horse was my favorite.
Thanks for sharing the fun with us.

Jane said...

It's always fun to see what artists come up with to decorate the horses. I remember seeing a series of cows that were done like this a few years back.
Have a great weekend.
