Do you remember my post this summer about a visit in Victoria that Alys and I enjoyed with the lovely Wilma? She’s taken a vintage ruler and turned it into wonderful art. Here’s a wee peek at what’s happening at the Creartful Dodger. Thank you Wilma for time spent hosting us on our trip and this fabulous dedication!
Boomdeadda came to play
On an island summer’s day.
She gave the gift of an old yard stick.
I chopped it into little bits…
And made stick people out of it.
I will pay to her hommage
When they show up in an assemblage.
Sorry K…the poem is a little lame but I love the gift and I hope you like what I have done with it. Here they are in sets of threes. I already have a plan in mind for three of them…he he he.
The ephemera: vintage photos, a vintage sticker, an image of an old door knob
The found objects: old typewriter keys, old game pieces, a spring, a watch face, a verdigris crown , a rusty key, a washer, a heart shaped charm, a red scrabble tile, a tiny drawer handle and of course a vintage yard stick from a Seattle paint company.
