Odd Things


Yesterday, I tried to upload this picture but Blogger wasn't being very helpful. I'm glad today I could finally get on with my posting.
The other day, an artist friend, asked a question, on her blog about what we considered treasures for our artwork. Since I'm cleaning up the art studio, in the garage, neglected all winter, I thought this was a good question.

My treasure box is labeled ODD THINGS. I have pretties and sparklies that are treasures that I keep in their own containers but this box is filled with items that I find it very difficult to discard. If I haven't found a use for them before I pass on this will be the box that makes my children, grandchildren and whoever is left to go through my things, shake their collective heads.I open my ODD THINGS box and share with you........1 plastic sandwich container with the Wonder Bread logo on the front of it,6 small, blue, plastic coin pigs from the local bank,8 erasers shaped and marked like dice,3 plastic, left foot molds and 3 plastic, right foot molds1 small Asian design little pocketbook,2 small, black plastic fake bowling balls,They actually go with the 10 multi colored, plastic three inch, rabbit pins,1 red plastic M $ M container,1 green stretched in a circle slinky Christmas ornament,4 plastic trivets made to look like wood circles all attached to each other,1 left or right frog shaped green flip flop,1 string of glass, crayon shaped lights,1 small red and gold box that held a small bottle of Red Door perfume,1 tiny gold sprayed angel playing a lute,and two very sparklie gold and jewel like snowflake ornaments about 3 inches in diameter, oh and finally a plastic insert that has a smashed, on purpose, red and blue car on the top of it.I have no idea where these things all came from it may be since this box doesn't have a lid they found their way to my studio. Some I know arrived by mail from friends that just KNEW I was the person that would give that item a good home.However they made it here, they have a home for now. Although, this weekend I am taking a sculpture workshop and I may find I absolutely need to use these ODD THINGS in future artwork.
