    Once again coming through with the good stuff Gigi 🙂

    Thank you especially for the I’m Smitten link: such weird surreal whimsy, I love it

    hi carson,

    thanks for the comment! i’m glad you like i’m smitten — the prints she had up in the booth at the fair were large squares that took up one wall, and i just stood there with my mouth hanging open, staring (and the booth was so crowded i couldn’t really snap it with my camera!).

    very cool stuff indeed.

  3. Michelle Says:

    Great post! So many beautiful things…nice bracelet up top…and nice owl, I just found out that those birds are mean, huge and sound like howler monkeys, they don’t hoot! Crazy huh

  4. DrunknMunky Says:

    I love the silkscreen prints – they look great!

  5. the scholar Says:

    hi michelle,

    thanks for the visit! all the jewelry from that artist was smooth as silk, and his belt buckles were STUNNING.

    hmmm, i didn’t know that owls are loud, but i thought they could be mean since they are birds of prey. interesting… and are you anti-owl now because of this info?

  6. the scholar Says:

    hello munky,

    thanks for the comment! when i was in the booth she was telling me to look at all of them because of the different saturation levels in the colors… they are beautiful prints with a playful sense of humor!
