How Bizarre

I feel like sometimes I find inspiration in the strangest of places. Like these are my dog's new treats, I wonder if they are any good? Beneful. I don't know which one is stranger: that I took a photo or that I wonder what they taste like? He seems to like them, but then my dog is kind undiscerning and will eat anything.
We have been playing with this creature: 
It's from a bucket of parts I got at the Learning store called SeaBonz. It's a company in NY city, it seems like it's inspired by modern art. I love playing with it, it is seriously a cool toy. They have other sets too-insects, skeletons, etc. I have to keep tabs on the little pieces though and put the whole thing up high when not in use. But a really cool toy for a kid who is into ocean stuff none the less. I hate to sound old, but they didn't have cool toys like this when I was little.
That's all we are up to. Hoping to get this layout that is in my head, well out of my head this weekend. Happy Friday! Until tomorrow.

Now, just don't sample those tasty treats. You better put them up high too, away from mom's hands.
Happy Friday.

I wouldn't try them, but my dog also got some of those treats in his bag of food. And I can see how you could be inspired by them (now that I look at your pic). Have a fabulous day! :)

My 9 yr old loves to tell me that dog treats are made from people-grade food and perfectly fine for eating. Yuck! Hope you have a great weekend!
