Recycled OOAK "He Wasn't KiDDING" 4 Real heart domino necklace

I made this one today :)

“My way of joking is telling the truth; that is the funniest joke in the world”

George Bernard Shaw quotes


I used original vintage ephemera from a 1928 magazine and placed it on a wooden 1 1/2" heart. I attached it to a small domino spinner and placed this on a recycled vintage 28" gold tone chain.

Dear God Wish List from a Dear Dog

My sweet Cuz sent me this list today and I thought it was a hoot!

Dear God: Here is a list of

just some of the things I must remember

to be a good Dog:

1. I will not eat the cat's food before he eats

it or after he throws it up.

2. I will not roll on dead seagulls, fish,

crabs, etc., just because I like the way they smell.

3. The Litter Box is not a cookie jar.

4. The sofa is not a 'face towel'.

5. The garbage collector is not stealing our stuff.

6. I will not play tug-of-war with Dad's

underwear when he's on the toilet.

7. Sticking my nose into someone's

crotch is an unacceptable way of saying 'hello'.

8. I don't need to suddenly stand

straight up when I'm under the coffee table.

9. I must shake the rainwater out of my fur before

entering the house - not after.

10. I will not come in from outside,

and immediately drag my butt across the carpet.

11. I will not sit in the middle of the living

room, and lick my crotch.

12. The cat is not a 'squeaky toy',

so when I play with him and he makes that noise,

it's usually not a good thing.

P.S. Dear God: When I get to Heaven,

may I have my testicles back?

-- Lost time is never found again." - Benjamin Franklin

Priceless :)LOL!!!!

Weird Word For the Day

Droogish – Relating to the nature or attitudes of a member of a street gang.
O.m.G. Betsy! Now I know where all this "pants on the ground" and "saggy baggy pants" are coming from!

It's a Droogish Deal-io....when them pants be dragging... sagging..and..bagging...:)

Dang! Back in my day we called em "Droopy Drawers" :)

Weird Word For the Day

galactophagist ~ milk drinker


"Ouch" :) Me thinks no wonder! So many are lactose intolerant when definition of "milk drinker"
sounds like someone is "gagging" lol!
Instead of "Got Milk?"
could the new catch - phrase be
"Got Galactophagist cravings?"
OOOhhh the latest milk commercial?
Don't think that's gonna happen anytime soon ! :)

And to take this one even a bit further...
could a politically correct term for a "cow milker" --  be a ~ "galactophagist-tologist?" 
sounds pretty impressive to me :)

Bring on

the Red Bull


foolish fool

Bring it on

Like Donkey Kong

I beg you !

Bring it on

Save me from

the drowning pool

Save me from

another yawn !

SpankyLuvs had a dream 2011


Okay..I had this broken polished stone vintage pendant. I bonded it back together and placed an original image from a vintage book and diamond glaze. Then I gave her a rhinestone necklace and a flashy little star for her hair.

On the back of the pendant I placed ephemera from a vintage book that says "Any one can be a fool."

The pendant is 3" tall. I placed it on a recycled 24" vintage chain.

Weird Word For The Day

acrasial adj 1851 -1851

ill-regulated; ill-tempered

The acrasial judge was known for her rants against younger lawyers.
Okay....I'm kinda thinking here that the dudes in 1851 knew that "acrasial" would be a pre-lude to "arse-hole-sial"  
(as in my sentence for 2011 :)-- ) if this word were still used in our every day vocabulary?

"All you acrasial ill-tempered arseholes need to relax and perhaps consider yoga as a hobby?"

Check this one out :)

I found this  spot after I saw that one of my items showed up there. :)
