my pirate phase...and antique hunting



Yay!! Antique shopping!!.....I had a day off yesterday, so me and Z went off to explore a new part of town; 'Antique row', aka Mount Pleasant...just up Main Street from Science World here in Van...and these are my finds..=) The wooden thing underneath is a drawer from what we thought might have been a typesetters cabinet, all the little compartments are labelled..it's just gorgeous, and, since my quest to find a shelf was not going as planned, and organizing the scrap space was next on my mind, i thought it would be perfect for all the little bits I collect...=) I got the robot at the same cool antique store...found an awesome toy store where I picked up the Gumby and the pirate wrapping paper and bandaids (also, in the awesome bandaid tin, there was a tiny pirate rubber-ducky..so cool!!)...we just had an awesome time checking out the trendy vintage consignment shoppes, antique stores, the rock store, a few comic book shops..it was by far one of the coolest parts of Van I've seen so far....=) Other than that - I'm trying to get it set up here at home so I can work here (ahh..the life of an artist, ya do what you gotta do..) cuz i have to animate 70 seconds of stuff in 2 weeks, which is a LOT...he he....and I'm still slow and learning.....eat and breathe it, man. =) I'm trying to finish unpacking and setting up my things tonight...so pics of my little place will be posted, soon..of course, there's some little details I'd like to do right now, like sew a new duvet cover, but that's not gonna happen til I only have one job and I actually have time to do so. =) he he...it's still all cute in here...I'm listening to some Jewel, giggling about my new toy robot, wanting to make some ugly felt dolls....and doing the usual sunday cleaning before the busy week starts...=) where does the time go, dude? I can post my Scrapmuse stuff, soon, too....so that'll be up soon!! =) Below, some skull finds from Micheal's last weekend....there was a cool foam pirate section, and the big pink and grey skulls are iron-ons!! Fun, fun...happy night til next time! =) Oh, and if you don't mind seeing cheesy, bubbling zombie movies, or kick-ass daredevil fast-driving girls, go see "Grindhouse"...it was sooo awesome!! =)
