moldy doily appearance

Since the lovely Kime Buzzelli was in town doing a book signing for her new project with Zune Arts, The Lost Ones, I decided to stop by and pay my due fan respects to her overall awesomeness. I picked out a pair of partygirl earrings I had made for her and by some crazy coincidence, the earrings matched pefectly with almost every color in the dress she was wearing. A few days later, I checked on her blog and saw that I had made a moldy doily appearance. So, low and behold, here are a couple of the pictures she posted from her book signing last Thursday on W 40th.

going old school: to pink lady love

Going back to my college thesis, here is dolly number three. I took a picture of her the other day in the park. Perhaps, at some point, when I get the desire drumming, I'll shoot and include some images of her other pink dolly friends. Thank you nana for your inspirational bathing suits and bikinis of which I, unfortunately, don't fit into.

This explains a lot...It's Jem!

For the longest time, I have been trying to remember her name, and now, I have finally found her! I was craigslisting, and a band was looking for an illustrator reminiscent of "Jem & the Hollograms." Hmmm. It sounded familiar, but I was not sure. A minute later, low and behold, wonderful google image search confirmed it was her.

I'll have to look up some of the old videos, but perhaps, this show can explain quite a few things for me. It's definitely the first tv show I remember watching and loving. I must have been three or four or something, but I still remember something about her mom dying in a freak lightning storm accident or something like that that led her to becoming the bold hot pink haired/dressed rock star that she was, and probably, my first Barbie. Oh, Barbie doll days...Anyway, here she is in all her magnificence and glory with her funky colored bright haired posse.

Oh my god, these are f***in fantastic. I stumbled upon this website of Artist, Amanda Michelle Smith, and I'm besides myself really. These are like wonderful ceramic children's stories with a twist including your share of the usual animal characters: pesky geese, innocent birdies, and suspicious kangaroos. Little blond girls in stockings and maryjanes or adidas doing things or getting caught in situations that they wouldn't necessarily want to confess to mom and pop. There could be more brunettes, but maybe I am just bias...haha. Anyway, I want to take home a piece of this little ceramic girly heaven. But until the day I do, I can just gaze admiringly at the little world ms. amanda michelle smith creates. I love it!
