Rummage Sale Scores

At the rummage sale at the Theatre de la Jeune Lune in Minneapolis... I purchased this awesome gigantic book prop! it's made of foam and board, and looks like a real book.

The photo above shows how big it is--it's leaning against a lamppost and you can see a car in the background. It's humungous! 

When I go back to elementary teaching, which I definitely will at some point, I know the kids will love it.

I also scored a gorgeous trunk (we had to bring a flashlight to see in all the nooks and crannies where the props were held! 

It's sad to see a local theatre closing.

Images/Motifs I do not understand!

There are some imagery/motifs in the art and crafting world I really do not understand.

1. Dunce caps. What is with all of the altered art, collage, ACEOs, where the people are wearing dunce caps? I do not understand.

2. Doll-head-with-nails-in-it. You see this all over the place in altered art! I do not understand. 

Anyone care to shed some light on this for me? 

I'm not being facetious or sarcastic. Whether or not I like these types of imagery is not the issue--I'd really like to understand it.

¡Gracias! Sarah :-)

Etsy share--NeedleFelted Alice in Wonderland by LuckyD!

Oh, I am just freaking out over this Alice and her Friends Felties set, handmade by LuckyD of the Feltiverse!

I love Alice in Wonderland so much. Do you believe how cute and intricate these needle-felted treasures are? 

The set includes Alice herself, as well as the White Rabbit, the Queen--holding a flamingo/putter!, the Mad Hatter, cheshire cat, and the "grumpy hooka-smoking caterpillar"--lol! Her caterpillar makes me crazy! 

As a needlefelter myself, I know this set must have taken hours and hours and hours and hours to create. I am in awe! While you're in her shop, be sure to check out LuckyD's other very cute needlefelted works! Hamilton the Hamster practically has me in tears, weeping from the cuteness.

Thanks, Joanna, for lending me your pics! 


I'd like to take a moment here to say: 
President Obama! President Obama! President Obama! 

That's right!

Yes, we can...

Yes, we did!!!!!!!!

I love America again!!!!!
