My latest Purchase








I am super excited about this. My friend Suzan over at ThriftycollageArtist put together this amazing art doll. It reminds me of the toys over at Sid's house on Toy Story. I don't know how long she had it up on her blog, but as soon as I saw it, I wanted it to be mine all mine!! And so it shall be!! I will be taking a class with Michael DeMeng in May at Art and Soul Asilomar, called "The Isle of Demented Toys", and if I am lucky, my piece will look half this great. It's like 15 inches tall, and uses parts of an old desk lamp, and is decorated all the way around. i love the head, and what looks to be the spine! OMGosh, I can't wait.

THIS IS WONDERFUL!! I absolutely LOVE it too!! I have a lot of treasures I am hoping to put together like this as well. I saw that Michael has that class, and like his altered toys too. If I had the time and the $$$ I would love to take his class. Suzan's art and blog are fantastic too, I'm adding it to my favorites here!!
