As the name of my blog indicates, I spend a lot of time thinking about home. Of course, my Heavenly Home is the one that is eternal, so that’s where I need to lay up my treasures, and that’s the one I’m striving for. But in the meantime, I have been given this tiny piece of the here-and-now—this home on the edge of town, this family, this neighborhood—in which to serve Him. And, though this is in the earthly realm, I want the things that happen here to be investments in the Heavenly realm.

When Life Becomes Art


Starry Night
Vincent Van Gogh


Last week, this experiment was circulating on Facebook and Bekah wanted to try it. She poured some half-and-half into a dish, and put several drops of food coloring around the edge. Then she soaked a Q-tip in dish soap and dipped it into the cream. Pretty cool!




And then THIS happened !



Someone exclaimed, "Starry Night!" 

Don't you think?


I love when a science experiment takes an artistic turn!

  3. Yes, I do see it! Poor Vincent. If he'd only known, he could have saved himself a lot of time - and probably money on paint.

  4. So cool! We did a similar but far less dramatic experiment at that age. We used oil? black pepper and the dish soap.
    Bekah's experiment was definitely WAY better.

  7. Gavin found a similar experiment in a book a few weeks ago and we tried it. And like most science experiments that we try, it failed. We gave it 2 attempts and were very disappointed. I'll have to show this to Gavin.

  8. Kristin, as you know, 99% of the science experiments I have ever done have been failures, even the "no fail" ones, sp I was particularly impressed with this one! We'll do it next Sunday! :)

  9. Very similar indeed. Looks like fun and what happens next? Does fabric get laid across it for a transfer or is that the end?

  10. I love it. And isn't it just like life...a bowl of cream (good stuff) with dish soap (the bitter not-so-good) = something beautiful, even artistic but the Great Artist Himself. :D

  12. I did this experiment with my granddaughter this weekend and she liked it so much she wanted to do it again. Fun and easy!
