so much fun. I would love to have one of these pieces in my house! Totally fits my mood and design sense lately. I need more quirky things around and these totally fit my personality!

Much Love,
Trissta

Daniela said...

"imagine the green is red", the note on the post...and the huge bucket of anti depressants are my favorites ahaha

Phoenix said...

These are awesome! And ever so slightly disturbing!! :) I can imagine the book would be hilarious to buy for someone else lol

that one with the sign is saying someone is taking pictures of you is creepy!

blueviolet said...

Pumpkin Barbie rules!
So -- just catching up, ms. droll.
I cannot believe your turkey day was filled with such drama.
And about the pretty ex; he is with you...not her. That's all you need to think about.

Love every single one of those! Some times I wish I was that clever, but then when I really think about it, I realize it must be quite a burden.

Colleen / Inspired to Share said...

Miss Caitlin S. said...

Kristine said...

mermaid gallery said...

i'd take that bucket of antidepressants if i looked like pumpkin barbie!....reminds me of the little drawings my brother did when we were kids and he would write hi diddle diddle after each.....just that warped sense of humor thing....

hope505 said...

<3

okay I need that book...thanks for makin' me laff today

Libbeh said...

I'm normally not a modern art girl, but I think the the big bucket of anti-depressants and "Brian is a twat" are both very amusing. The "I'm Dead" cat one makes me frown if it really is a stuffed cat; I love animals, so the thought of dead animals makes me whimper, haha!

ajg-jane said...

I love a well carved potato skull.

Kathryn said...

The pictures are subtly provocative.

I think all of us have secretly daydreamed about putting up a sign like "Dave is a twat".

As clever as I found the sign, I found the land mine in the playground the equally disturbing. While not an issue in the US, there are 65 or more countries around the world that have active landmines and 30-40% of the victims of them are children under 15. Worse yet, some appear toylike. They were/are cheap to make (but expensive to remove) and can remain active for 50 years.

utter brilliance!!! the flower with the wig and hot dog in bed obliterate me. sooo good.
