A bit-o-the strange...






Well now, my friend Cathie(cconz) from 'This Girls Art', has suggested that we all show a little of our strange...collections that is. Well, there are a few of us that do tend to think out of the box with this biz...ahem...Lauri at 'Chippys'...crack head baby dolls and Lulu 'Chippys'...she has my chicken...so I thought I would show you mine if you show me yours...OK...I rescue bewildered taxidermy...from certain ridicule to be sure, like the coon hide my daughter did in taxidermy school, as well as the snake. Now to me this adds a certain charm to my already questionable lifestyle and those who know me will agree, like Cathie, who now owns my toads playing guitars and drinking beer. Well, I caved, she had been looking for quite some time, so I knew they would have a good home, she also owns one of my roosters "Cecil", a great newel post piece...but this is what makes life interesting...aye

Well..I will be honest. Those bookends scare me. A lot. BUT! I would love to find a white peacock someday. A friend of mine passed one in a thrift store for $125..went back an hour later and that baby was GONE!!! My dad had an armadillo lampshade and an taxidermy owl hidden in a closet when I was a kid. I used to scare all my friends with the owl..haha. My daughter still displays what is left of it under a cloche (just his head), after my Dad's dog got a hold of it one day :( I think I'm going to go dig out that lampshade tomorrow. I'll send you a pic if I can find it.

OK - we're Friends right?? So I must say ....EEEWWWWW!

But, interesting..in a way...like stopping at a pet cemetery of sorts...

OK, so have a fabulous first week-end of summer and our thoughts and prayers are with all of your state's neighbors & Friends who have been affected by the flooding.
