A flock of little birds searching for missing cupcakes. “Where could they have gone?” they wonder.
These birds are headed for Nest in San Francisco.
lorna will be in the shop at 8PM EST.
If you’ve check out Laura Normandin’s blog then you already know I’m participating in a show in LA this July at Tinlark Gallery with Laura and Maggie Hiltner. It’s flattering to be included with such talented people. I’m enjoying making things for the show and excited in kind of a mildly hysterical way about the experience – I’ve never done anything like this before and the thought is a little overwhelming. I’m doing an installation in the project room that will include the 100 horse project.
The space is perfect for the horses and I’m also making new ships and some other things. I’ll be posting progress photos and will probably be getting myself on some kind of self -inflicted program soon to insure steady forward progress.
I’ll give you more news on the show as it becomes available.
Today’s bird, Freda, looks like she means business.
She’ll be in the shop at 8:30 PM EST.
I’m not sure for how long but at least for this week. This is rosalee.
Something Christmasy in progress:
I’m still working on it. Here’s a shot of the little set.
And another not so pretty behind the scenes picture.
This is what about 95% of the pictures I take look like.
The daily bird for tuesday – ruth.
And a custom cake topper
and bride and groom set
who recently went off to serve in their official capacity.
I left brooklyn this weekend and went moss hunting. I also found a great spider web. I’m generally against insects of any kind but I love a nice round web with a little and relatively unobjectionable spider right in the middle.
I got an awful lot of moss. I hope nothing crawls out of it tonight.
It’s way more than I need for one little fish bowl (the terrarium becky made me didn’t survive a couple environmental challenges and a persistent mold problem) so I’m also going to make a few other terrariums and arrangements. The first one is a thoughtful little man in a garden.
It’s Monday so I’m back on the daily bird porgram. This is Cora.
She was a special order but I plan on making more – maybe some swan lake ballerinas.
The fleamarket – an embarrassment of riches.
I’ve been kind of looking around for a new sewing box for taking the bird operation on the road and this turned up on Sunday.
A perfect box WITH STUFF IN IT for almost zero dollars !!! The little bit of fabric didn’t come in the box. It’s a swatch from a vintage coverlet – pale blue seersucker with tiny roses. A guy was using it to wrap furniture. It’s great fabric and I’m gonna make the daily bird out of it (8pm est). I think my favorite thing in the box is this button:
And the rest of it. An entire fisher price family? Oh my.
I’m not sure there is anyone, anywhere, having more fun than me. It probably wouldn’t even be healthy.
