Weird art is awesome!

It’s Monday and it’s time to get weird up in here!

Two of my friends’ art is currently on display in Stroudsburg, Pa., at Vintage Karma, and this Ryan R. piece definitely falls under the category of weird (and awesome):

He found old photos under a loose floorboard in his apartment and altered them. When I saw this one, I laughed out loud — and then I bought it!

Sobi also rocks out with a special brand of awesome weird:

He draws characters on sugar and sweetener packets! LOVE it! I also snatched up one of his pieces this weekend.

A day at Cindy’s house

The other week, I got to spend time at my friend Cindy’s house. A day of homemade pesto sauce, garden fresh tomatoes and silly board games.

And lots of visiting with her critters … Yay!


Ainslie takes a photo.


Fantastic feet!

From fowl to felines …

Zuben the kitten is quite the gentleman. Shy and cute.

MUCH bigger kitties live at Cindy’s home, too. She and her husband have two bobcats, Audrey and Trifid, who are educational critters. (Boy Scouts visit them and learn about wildlife and such.)

Hello there, Trifid. I think my hair matches your fur quite nicely.

We got very close …

I wasn't expecting this.

She makes a comfy seat.

The rainy day ended with rainbow action.

Still cloudy, but there is a rainbow ...

The end!

Thanks for the day of fun, Cindy! 🙂

Box o’ fun

Here is your weekly dose of weird. An antique doll head in a box. 

My mind races with questions …

Where is the body? Did a serial killer use it? What are you going to do with just a head? Why does it look so happy about this situation? Can you imagine wrapping the head up and giving it to someone like that? *Shudder*

Birthday cup


I turned 30 on Thursday and celebrated with an antiques adventure. Yay! 

One of my favorite finds of the day:

I couldn’t resist the owl hanging from the handle. Even better, when I got home I realized the back has a message: “We all have our ups & downs.” AWESOME!

Happy weekend! 🙂

Mushroom owl

After I ate a mushroom omelette last week at a diner, the waitress left the bill on the table. This sounds like a boring story — but wait!

I looked down and saw “mushroom owl,” but it really said “mushroom oml” in her old-lady handwriting. My partner drew this up on the back of the placemat, and I knew I had to make it! Plushie fun. 🙂

The drawing that started it all.

Found this in a parking lot last week. Hood ornament of awesome! 🙂

Weird! Weird! Weird!

This doesn’t fall under the flea market/antique store/old stuff category, but I don’t care. Could not resist sharing this:

Wow! A fetus cookie cutter?!

My friend the Saint and I have been discussing possibilities lately. Add an umbilical cord. Boom! Happy birthday cookies. Green fetus means zombie cookies, etc. 

Yum …
