Dollar Store

Not all Dollar Store finds are worthless. Take this little African-mask-thing. Properly doctored up with found and saved junque it becomes a one-of-a-kind art piece!

Saturday, my friend Dan and I decided to go on a bit of a walkabout in my neighborhood to see what we could find. Dan found a motorcycle licence:
And I found an orange plastic soldier and a porcelian doll made in Japan with missing limbs:
We also found a Geo Cache item by the old Natatorium.

Brad Street

Here is the single most bizarre thing in the house that Herman bought. We're not sure what it's makers intent can see in the bottom right hand corner the plastic yellow grid like thing which covered each fake-brick-outlined panel. Underneath each panel, is a short wooden step, one is hinged so that it can be opened for use of an ill-placed socket. (You can see it down there by the HUSKY box on the electrical pole panel).

This is a detail from the first tree panel, a VERY tiny squirrel:

These are some birds resting on the electrical pole:

And lastly, these are some pieces of the old original (1920) floor that I thought looked pretty cool, I wish they still made floors like that!

Porch Painting

So my friend Herman bought this house in my neighborhood (yay!) and we helped paint his porch today...this is what it looked like. The choice of colors here reflect some other even more bizarre things in the house (that's Herman's girlfriend's son Ted in the back)

This is it almost done...took all day but it's looking great!

The floor will be done tomorrow and then I will show you some fun things from the house...

My Silent Friends

These are my 2 quietest friends by FAR! Both thrift store finds, they get along very well and even let Boby the cat sleep on their pillow with them once in awhile. Clown Face is looking out the screened door at one of the many stray cats that roan my yard and I think Teddy has gone blind! The chair is a wicker rocking chair my mom gave me (thanks Mom!) I painted it red.

Alien Cactus

this is my Alien Cactus. I don't know why aliens like this cactus so much, maybe they are all stuck to it...? I'd ask them but I don't understand their language and they don't seem to be able to do that thing the other ones can do, putting their thoughts into people's minds...

Life, eventually,
is such a disappointment
because we can never
have everything
at the same time...
we realize that,
and relax, finally.

Juke Joint

Yes, we are going out to the Juke Joint up the street tonight...actually, it's more like an Irish Pub but it's as close as we can get to a Juke Joint without driving. This painting (horrible pict sorry) was done many years ago by moi...notic the horrible perspective and the incongruous pink chairs...

Cat n Crow


I think I am done with my project of showing you all the things in my house not made by me...there's more but that's all I'm showing, you'll have to come visit me to see the rest! This is an eames era painting found at a thrift store. The red parts you see used to be orange. I painted them red:

My sister gave me this UFO ad (Flying Sauces ARE real!):
This is a folk art cardinal whirligig missing the wings:

have a great day everyone!
