Sir, you have named the nameless heads! I loved Bugs Bunny so much as a kid, Bugs became my nickname (well, the only one I didn't mind that they called me) :))))

LOL! What a riot! How fun!

I haven't read the Spiderwick Chronicles, did you like them?

LDahl said...

Liked the books very much, the illustrations were so cool, but the movie? ICK yawn! Hehe!

Hey pallie, these are awesome! This is a very cool project and I could see these sitting on a railing waiting for the trock or treaters :)

ValGalArt said...

I made a set of these for my daughter years ago.....they have been used for everything from a voodoo graveyard to table decorations and back to a headstone graveyard. They have weathered everything over the years but she is down to the last few(there were seven to start with). That batch were more skull-like. I saw an old string mop out in the garage while I was making these this year, so they grew hair and looked more head like. These are a lot thicker paper mâché, so might last even longer.

Very, verrrry clever.

I might make one to stick on our neem tree by the roadside...people are always breaking off the branches and leaves to sell in the market. Bah humbug.

LDahl said...

Ok, I have to admit I had no idea what a Neem tree was. I did some research, wow, now I know why you have trouble with people stealing pieces of it. What a fantastic tree!
If they would damage your tree they would probably steal your paper head too!:)))

Hey! Welcome back! :) Nice heads....*glurp*
For my one day expo, it was quiet... BUT... I've been interviewed by a journalist and there will be something about ATC in the next Saturday newspaper... :) Maybe more poeple will now know about artist trading cards in Quebec city... :)

really great to see you about Lilah!

LDahl said...

Merlinprincesse all in good fun, the grandkids found them fascinating but some "big people" were creeped out!
Wow! Glad to hear you are going to get some notice! That's super!

LDahl said...

Simon! Thanks! I'm trying to do a bit of reading every day and see what everyone is up to. It's nice to know that whatever state I'm in, there are others going through it also. (Is that misery loves company?) :(
Well not so much, but it's nice to know I'm not just cursed...hehehe!
Thanks for not giving up on me.

simon said...

no trouble at all :o)

Guyana-Gyal said...

Yes, isn't neem amazing?

My mother is hollering for me to come to lunch, I'll be back..........

LDahl said...

GG, I wish we could grow them here, but alas I think they wouldn't make it through one of our falls, let alone the winter. They sure seem like a magic tree... one of those flora that you would think a gift of God.
