Bald Fairy

I've finished this fairy but I haven't put it on Etsy yet.
It reminded me of the recordings made of the last living castrato in the beginning of the twentieth century. Interesting.
I need to sign up for Artfire and Cargoh. These things don't just fly out of the house by themselves.
Also time to exploit Harry Potter again.

Minnesota Fall

Fall flowers are the prettiest. I went to a farmers market and got these. Alex and I went to a fire station and bought some booya to take home. It's only made in the fall in Wisconsin and Minnesota.

Great, Funny Country Western Song Titles

Dead Skunk in the Middle of the Road
Do You Love As Good As You Look
Does Your Chewing Gum Lose Its Flavor On The Bedpost Overnight?
Get Your Biscuits In The Oven And Your Buns In The Bed
Get Your Tongue Outta My Mouth 'Cause I'm Kissing You Goodbye
Guess My Eyes Were Bigger Than My Heart
Heaven's Just A Sin Away
Her Body Couldn't Keep You Off My Mind
Her Cheatin' Heart Made A Drunken Fool Out Of Me
Her Teeth Was Stained, But Her Heart Was Pure
Here's A Quarter, Call Someone Who Cares
How Can A Whiskey That's 6 Years Old Whup A Man That's 33?
How Can I Miss You If You Won't Go Away?
How Can You Believe Me When I Say I Love You When You Know I've Been A Liar All My Life?
I Changed Her Oil, She Changed My Life
I Don't Know Whether To Come Home Or Go Crazy
I Don't Know Whether To Kill Myself Or Go Bowling
I Don't Want Your Body If Your Heart's Not In It
I Fell In A Pile Of You And Got Love All Over Me
I Flushed You From The Toilets Of My Heart.
I Got In At 2 With A 10 And Woke Up At 10 With A 2
I Just Bought A Car From The Guy That Stole My Girl, But The Car Don't Run
So I Figure We Got An Even Deal
I Keep Forgettin' I Forgot About You
I Knew I'd Hit Rock Bottom When I Woke Up On Top Of Ewe
I Liked You Better Before I Knew You So Well
I May Be Used (But Baby I Ain't Used Up)
I Meant Every Word That He Said
I Still Miss You, Baby, But My Aim's Gettin' Better
I Wanna Whip Your Cow
I Wish I Were In Dixie Tonight, But She's Out Of Town
I Would Have Wrote You A Letter, But I Couldn't Spell Yuck!
I Wouldn't Take Her To A Dawg Fight, Cause I'm Afraid She'd Win
I Wouldn't Take You To A Dog Fight Even If I Thought You Could Win
I'd Rather Have A Bottle In Front Of Me Than A Frontal Lobotomy
I'll Marry You Tomorrow But Let's Honeymoon Tonite
I'm Gettin' Gray From Being Blue
I'm Gonna Hire A Wino To Decorate Our Home
I'm Havin' Daydreams About Night Things In The Middle Of The Afternoon
I'm Just A Bug On The Windshield Of Life
I'm Not Married But The Wife Is
I'm So Miserable Without You, It's Like Having You Here
I'm The Only Hell Mama Ever Raised
I've Been Flushed From The Bathroom Of Your Heart
I've Got Four On The Floor And A Fifth Under The Seat
I've Got Red Eyes From Your White Lies And I'm Blue All The Time
I've Got Tears In My Ears From Lying On My Back In My Bed While I Cry Over You
I've Got The Hungries For Your Love And I'm Waiting In Your Welfare Line
If Drinkin' Don't Kill Me, Her Memory Will
If Fingerprints Showed Up On Skin, Wonder Whose I'd Find On You
If I Had Shot You When I Wanted To, I'd Be Out By Now
If I Said You Had A Beautiful Body, Would You Hold It Against Me?
If It's Got To Be Later, How 'Bout Later Tonight?
If Love Were Oil, I'd Be A Quart Low
If My Nose Were Full of Nickels, I'd Blow It All On You
If The Jukebox Took Teardrops I'd Cry All Night Long
If The Phone Don't Ring, Baby, You'll Know It's Me
If Whiskey Were A Woman I'd Be Married For Sure
If You Can't Feel It (It Ain't There)
If You Don't Leave Me Alone, I'll Go And Find Someone Else Who Will
If You Leave Me, Can I Come Too?
It Ain't Love But It Ain't Bad
It Takes Me All Night Long To Do What I Used To Do All Night Long
Learning To Live Again Without You Is Killing Me
Mama Get The Hammer (There's A Fly On Papa's Head)
May The Bird Of Paradise Fly Up Your Nose
My Every Day Silver Is Plastic
My John Deere Was Breaking Your Field, While Your Dear John Was Breaking My Heart
My Wife Ran Off With My Best Friend, And I Sure Do Miss Him
Oh, I've Got Hair Oil On My Ears And My Glasses Are Slipping Down, But Baby
I Can See Through You
Oh, Lord! It's Hard To Be Humble When You're Perfect In Every Way
Pardon Me, I've Got Someone To Kill
Please Bypass This Heart
She Feels Like A New Man Tonight
She Made Toothpicks Out Of The Timber Of My Heart
She's Got Freckles On Her, But She's Pretty
She's Out Doing What I'm Here Doing Without.
Swing Wide Your Gate Of Love
Tennis Must Be Your Racket 'Cause Love Means Nothin' To You
Thank God And Greyhound She's Gone
The Last Word In Lonesome Is "me"
They May Put Me In Prison, But They Can't Stop My Face From Breakin' Out
Velcro Arms, Teflon Heart
What Made Milwaukee Famous (Has Made a Loser Out of Me)
When We Get Back To the Farm (That's When We Really Go To Town)
When You Leave Walk Out Backwards, So I'll Think You're Walking In
Who You Gonna Believe, Me Or Your Lying Eyes?
You Can't Deal Me All The Aces And Expect Me Not To Play
You Can't Have Your Kate And Edith Too
You Can't Roller Skate In A Buffalo Herd
You Done Tore Out My Heart And Stomped That Sucker Flat
You Hurt The Love Right Out Of Me
You Were Only A Splinter As I Slid Down The Bannister Of Life
You're A Cross I Can't Bear
You're Ruining My Bad Reputation
You're The Reason Our Kids Are So Ugly

I've never heard most of these songs. I was thinking about a song," If That Phone Don't Ring, You Know it's Me" and I got to wondering.

Poodles & Plants

Here are some poodles. I haven't decided about them yet. I'm making a skull plant. Just because. Whenever I'm channel surfing and I come across Frasier I watch it.

Clown & Frogs

I made another Day of the Dead clown because I like him. People often buy skeletons seasonally and the holidays are just around the corner.
I wanted to try a red eyed tree frog today. Each one requires about thirty pieces. Can't I do anything easy?

Lorelei Lee

I'm working on a Marilyn Monroe statue. Just before Monroe shot the "Diamonds Are a Girl's Best Friend" song from "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes",the first issue of Playboy came out with nude pictures of Marilyn that had been taken before she was famous. The studio freaked and worried about their star and production being sunk before it was even completed. They quickly created a stiff, pink dress that was much more modest than the original sexier dress. I can't find a picture of it, although I once saw it in a book. It was black horizontal bands over flesh covered fabric. Rhinestones were sewed along the black bands. It looked great, but the studio was worried about too much flesh.
Monroe defused the situation by admitting that she posed for the pictures to pay her rent. When a reporter asked her if she had anything on for the photo shoot, she said,"Yes, the radio." People adored her.

I'm Thinking About Dogs

Minnesota turned to fall on Labor Day.
Here is a picture of Cassidy and Watson. Watson loves chasing the frisbee but he doesn't like to relinquish it. That's because he's a terrier, not a retriever.
The other picture shows the news vans outside of that crummy little church in Gainesville. Terry Jones, the pastor is just loving it. He's right up there with Fred Phelps. I wish someone would send him and his Qurans to Iraq for 9/11. He could do his thing there and they could pick him up the next week.

I made a skeleton seal, but it doesn't have a name yet. Now I'm making a skeleton with this outfit Audrey Hepburn wore at the Ascot races in "My Fair Lady". Here is a charming clip.
