Collage and trashpo treasures from Erni Bar

Fantastic collages--they knocked my sox off.

Next come the latest crushed cans from Erni, always a thrill, and in this group the one at the upper right especially kills me. It is so flat--flatter than usual--and some of it seems to be…

Cheryl Penn's book of books

customs declaration CN22, states "BOOK, NO VALUE" and i beg to differ. Layers of history, a chronicle, a saga, hidden pockets of Cheryl's boekies of past. The complexity of this piece is borderline overwhelming, staggering and gorgeous! Apologies for the photos and this blog. Here is a peek into this marvel. Thank you Cheryl. My mind is permanently blown.…

The night the lights went out in Paris

Another tragedy, but this one apparently avoided ... so far ... :

You must read the story. It is well worth it. And now I'm wondering, beneath the barcodes and 60w BELL bulb labels, are we seeing a map of the nefarious and unlawful procurement of the…

Wine Caps from Dean Marks

Including champagne, even: 

Those caps just do it for me somehow. As we know from the other side here, and from other blogs, Dean's first meeting with Val sadly did not happen. I view that as a terrible tragedy. Could there be any more fun had by…

Speaking of tragedy ...

Carina Granlund almost claimed that this is one: 

Her transfer tragedy is WAY less tragic than the one I sent her in our trade. This thing is unwittingly masterful, and I love it. Well, she did admit to me privately that maybe the white paint ended up helping.

Here is her note on the other side, which is included mainly because there IS a mistake in it, in the…

Wonderful mixed bag from Diane Keys

Diane sent me a little bit of everything, including some excellent rust and this fabulous holey piece of metal she found which I love:

Warning from Carina Granlund

At first I didn't know how to take this card.  A man with two women in his arms, and a warning at my own risk.  I thought; "What does Carina take me for, two women at the same time, and blondles none the less?"

And a stiff warning to boot!…

YO HO Mate! Amy Irwen comes ashore with this delightful Pirates book

Well what a treat of two in one week from Amy.  I will only have time to show you this first imagne as there are acutally 13 pages to scan.  Besides that, one of the words "Rowdy" fell off and I'm not sure where to put it back.  The detail is just out of this world, and I am again overwhelmed.

   I'll be adding to this blog at a later date, but for now, enjoy this little peek.…
