Thursday Themes are handy - once again I was lacking blogging inspiration, but now I have something to post.
This is (or was or was designed to be) a glove mould - its made of porcelain and was the one New York gift I bought myself on my first Spring trip over this year.
There was a whole wall of these in a Greenwich Village shop - if I ever go back, I will take a photo.
I just knew I wanted one.
Normally my little inner voice would say "... yes, but do you need it?do you really have space for More Stuff?..." But being on holiday for no other reason than the sake of "My Self", my little inner voice was muffled by the silvery duct tape of self-indulgence and treatiness.
On my summer trip over, I bought myself a. some vintage buttons
from a thrift store.
Aren't they unusual / unnerving / cute / freaky / sweet / odd / special / disturbing / appealing / bizarre ? (delete as applicable)
They are about 2 inches tall - you know, Christmas-decoration size. (though i deny any allegations of Christmas thoughts in August)
This one is unique, not only by being green and yellow, but also by having its bits - limbs, hands and feet - all present and intact.
Four of them have a hand gone or mostly missing, together with the odd missing foot or two.
This one has no hands at all nor even remnants of hands. (both feet intact though)
But this one, saddest of all, came out of the box with no head.
Being headless must surely be worse than being handless?
Imagine my relief at finding the head nestling in the bottom corner of the box.
The head, hung up by itself, would make a truly unusual / unnerving / cute / freaky / sweet / odd / special / disturbing / appealing / bizarre Christmas decoration, don't you think?
