Forty years of lost toys
For forty years my dad, Doc, has gathered up every piece of trash he has found in the creek that flows past our home. He took almost all of it to the dump. But every toy he has found he saved, stashed away in our barn, even long after his 4 boys had grown and left to find our own lives. Why? Because when we were kids discovering the treasures of youth, we didn’t know the difference. And he loves remembering… But is it Art?
But is it art?
Please be a part of our Honeypot Floatoshoot Project live now at Kickstarter.com! Search ‘Honeypots’, vote yes with just a $1.00 pledge, watch the video, ‘like’ it and share it with your friends. http://dld.bz/bsezV
You can help make this type of ‘Art’ impossible by helping us to teach people the difference! Thank you from all of us at Bee Natural.
My brother Bert and I used to play with some of this!

The “Honeypot Floatoshoot” Kickstarter Project ‘awareness party’ at the Globe here in Athens (the first place I ever publicly showed my Honeypots some 17+ years ago) is now in the books. I was thrilled to see several of my longtime supporters helping explain the bigger picture about my little Art Project to the unsuspecting masses – well, maybe it wasn’t that crowded – Thanks Maria Camila for helping me set up and Taylor for being so positive even in light of having to hear the same old stories yet again! And AJ, thanks for the Banner! You are the BOMB! I hope the folks from Asheville (Mountain Lights is the shop there that sells Honeypots) and Louisiana who won Honeypots in the drawing can spread the word as well!
The Honeypot Floatoshoot Project is 37% funded, 43% through the campaign. On the surface it might look look a little sluggish, but it’s not. The total amount pledged so far is artificially low! We have been trying to pull off a local grassroots $1.00 pledge campaign to see if we could fund it with Athens support alone. There are a number of folks that have already pledged (including my Mom and, whether you choose to believe it or not, my Ex-wife tossed in a lot more than a buck! – thanks Ashley you are a true sport) who chipped in $1.00 that would have contributed a good deal more. But those $1.00 pledges, combined with ‘likes’ on the video and sharing-passing it along with a note that it is worth the trouble to pledges even just one dollar, are golden. Every pledge, regardless of the amount, is a vote on Kickstarter in their Popularity engine and increases the visibility for ‘our little art project’! By countdown day 15 (three days from April 18-today) we will begin to recruit those waiting in the wings to pledge more and I will call the 600 or so gift shops that sell Honeypots and ask them to pledge at least a buck. So we’ll fund it. But the ‘one dollar at a time’ way would be more fun!
5th 'Most Popular' rank in the nation in Kickstarter Art Projects puts us ON THE LANDING PAGE!
Twenty five one dollar pledges a day would almost certainly keep us in the 3rd position or higher almost constantly.
Remember, it is that you pledge that counts, not the amount!

We are swamped with dogwood blossoms and azaleas! Got to pick as hard and fast as we can to put enough away for the rest of the year. Normally, azaleas come out a couple of weeks ahead of the peak dogwood bloom, but this year everything has busted loose all at once!
