After I dropped my sister-in-law off at the Sarasota airport last week, I made a stop at the Marietta Museum of Art and Whimsy.  It is just around the corner from the airport.

One of my Vermont friends and neighbors is a whimsical artist so I am hoping she will enjoy these pictures and the many others I took.

This is great! I am dragging out an old bathtub in our junk pile and planting in it before the summer is out. Was that one regular size or just a small replica? At one time we had a flower bed that was planted in a real bed frame. It was our youngest granddaughter's favorite garden.

There is a lot of creative thinking in that area. I love it when people make something neat out of a throwaway.

I think going to a museum is always a feast for the senses and adds to our repertoire of ideas. I love the items you selected to share.
