A Blog for Lindsay Stewart "Madame Farquharsons's Dream Alfabit

Mail Art received third week of January 2011

I ‘met’ Lindsay through Project 26 – an excellent place to be :-) She posted me my first zine – exciting! It is made from a book recently bought from a second hand store. The Book was called Charlie Farquharsons Korn Allmynack  Lindsay writes further  - “obviously in satire, most words are spelled incorrectly.  One section, Madame Farquharsons Dream Alfabit” was perfect.  Yes, another sort of 26 project  - the cover says its all – speshully for the symbol minded.

Does Lindsay know my sleeping troubles?? BECAUSE - IF you dream Zebra - you wil quarl with someone close to you - probly wearing pjamas.

Did you read that??

AWAKE: To dream that you are awake means that you are just not consentrating. Try closing yer eyes.

A few choice dream tidbits:

VULTURE: to see one of these winged murrauders of the air is a warning that somebody is about to pick on you.

NUTS:  To dream of nuts does not mean that you are :-))) Can be a good dream at either end, wether they appear as a appytizer or just desserts.

MANURE: overall this a a faverable omen, and good will come out of it. Jist done spread yerslef too thin.

LAKE: Dreaming of this meens you are about to drain Love's cup to the last drip. BUT is slimy inhabitants rise up from that lake and start to chew you, this is not a good dream.

Wake up!

Ok and last but not least, just so you all have an excellent day:

If you dream of

FRECKLES:  To dream yer face is covert with them, meens yer chance of happyness is spotty. What did you expeck with such a rotten compleckshun?

Lindsay - FAB!!! Thank you - something in the mail for you today.

Huge round of applause for

What a great writeup Chreyl!! I really loved reading it and it's always very enlightening hearing what someone else thinks about something you made. It's not often I hear this feedback as I send most of them in the mail. Can't wait to see what you send!!

Sorry to change the subject D.W. :-)

Thought for the day from Lindsay's zine::

Intestines: to see yer own indycates something is pretty wrong. Try putting them back. If you ask friends for assisants don't be surprised if they refuse.

To dream you are doing this to yerslf meens that yer trubbles will be soon washed away, as well as ridding yerslef of an unpleasnat scalp condition.

Fascinating zine...and great blog, too. 'Would love to see all 26 letters...what fun spelling of Madame Farquharson (did I spell that correctly?) And each "dream" is more hilarious then the next! Thanks for the laughs! And "BTW", sloan...how is "ALPHA" coming along, hmmmm?
