(Off) Broadway Debut

This lovely battered old GE Clock (purchased from my Etsy shop) was just shipped off to New York City for use as a prop in the performance piece/installation "Sleep No More", a retelling of sorts of MacBeth.

Wiki here:

I sent the photo along just in case they could use it.

Had me thinking of when my siblings and I staged a theatrical performance of the The Fall of the House of Usher in the garden shed.

World in a grain of lint?

I like this very much as it is, a very old piece of felt embroidered and appliqued, the furry part is some laundry lint from a gorgeous apple green wool blanket I fished out a dumpster. Then there are the clock parts and the broken jeweler's loupe. The pink things are wooden beads I sewed on. it is going to be attached and partially concealed as part of a larger piece, I will post that when I finish it. Anyway, I have a feeling that I will continue to prefer this component to the final work. Hmmm.

Why Me?

There are a lot of ideas in this world, and certainly not all of them deserve to be recorded. Why does MY brain extrude things like this:

A t-shirt with the motto :My name is BRITTNI!!!!

with a little angry female character standing on top.

Did I mention I spend too much time on the etsy forums?

Where my brain is melting down is whether it would be too much to have both the dots on the i (s) and the top bits of the exclamation points be bulgy pink hearts.

Girl in the Wind

Isn't she lovely? 
Every once in awhile I post something from my etsy shop here.
She is very convincing as someone caught in a windstorm,
I figured out her origin from a very faint stamp on her base, 
the outline of an island.

Punctuation for the new age

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! = mild surprise accompanied by a craving for attention

????????????????????????????????????????????????? = brain freeze followed by an involuntary seizure of the right hand located over the keyboard

It's possible to spend too much time in the etsy forums...

Ed. in the same arena, or forum, you get stuff like this:

There going there in there car.

Gertrude Stein would be proud.
