SWEET.....


We have just come back from taking our younger son and family to the airport after a 9 day visit. It was such a nice time and a chance for us Grandparents to get to know our grandkids more. We only see them once or twice a year.
One of our outings was to the Jelly Belly factory in Fairfield, California. We got to see how those tiny jelly bean-like candies are made and even some great artwork. This entire portrait of the actor George Clooney was created from Jelly Bellys. I think its a pretty good likeness.
Be sure to enlarge this photo.

That really IS amazing! I wonder if they have one of Ronald Regan.

Thiên said...

Cool, you think they'd mind if I try a few of those? ;)

Hilary said...

I always thought he looked pretty delicious.

May be, you are the one, who need candies now - not Clooney - to comforting you after they have gone.

Take a rest at first and look all photos, which you certainly have taken and then make a photo book about their visit for next Christmas.

Good weekend to you, Sue!

If you ate all those, you may have to visit the dentist afterwards.

Sue this is a really neat shot. Thanks for alerting me to Mr. Mapper's train shot. That one is really good and is in my opinion one of those train shots that would do well at a competition at least from what I have seen and experienced.

Once you identified him, I recognized his likeness. They did his eys very well.

I'm so glad you got to see your grandchildren!

O.k., now I really feel old...
I know who Rosemary Clooney was, but wouldn't be able to tell you a single thing about Geroge Clooney, other than he is the latest Hollywood sex symbol, and has been recently divorced...   Go for it girls...

CG said...

Brilliant. My girls love those jelly beans and so do I!

Hi, Sue,
I first heard of GoodSearch a couple of years ago when the mission that I had worked with was suggested to me as a charity to support. I didn't do anything with it at the time, but recently it was brought to my attention again, and I signed up.
Last night I made a purchase from B&N, and 2.5% of the sale goes to CFF. It isn't a lot, but little by little...
