Thanks! I was kind of playing with 2 ideas: that it is sort of like a "spirit house", ie a place for her spirit to reside in my house, and also the idea that as a talented, brilliant woman she lived in a time when she wasn't really free to pursue her ambitions, and I think she was always a bit frustrated by that (caged). She was an artist and taught my dad to love art, especially photography, hence the film & bulb. I always feel like it's slightly unfinished though.

Hello- Ahem...my first post in the art section (*coughs nervously*)
I'm not sure if this is the right area for this..but...I found these amazing photos in a drawer at my parents' house. They are pix of my grandma as a young and fun college girl, and some other misc really old family pix. I was really close to my Grandma and wanted to do something special with them. Meanwhile...I also had a vintage birdcage that I wasn't sure what to do with. So...I was looking at a lot of Joseph Cornell and wanted to do some boxes or 3D collage, and I came up with this. I sandwiched the photos in glass, backed with beautiful hand made papers (from the art store..no credit there) and tied them up with wires and beads, and hung them in the cage, (painted black to look more iron and less shabby chic) along with a few other family-symbolic items (an overexposed roll of film, a projector bulb, some candles and an ornament) and..voila! I'm pretty pleased with it, although it was hard to get a good picture...What do you think?

Also, you could make a family scrapbook but enlarge pictures and stuff so they are easier for her to see, you could use a color copier even, maybe 1 or 2 photos per page.

For your Grandma I'd suggest something really tactile, very soft or textured, maybe a soft scarf or a blanket? Or something she can work that's not very difficult, like a knifty knitter with soft yarn, unless she has arthritis or something. Or a good audio book, maybe make a nice textured cover or box for it?

Cut it into a shape and drape it over the back of a chair or couch, or on the floor?

That's awesome! You are so lucky! I like the light sculpture idea. Can you stuff them full of LEDs or Christmas lights? Maybe a festive Christmas garland where you make a string of them hanging down like icicles. or up like stalagmites LOL (or is it stalactites....Hmmm ....). A coattree, build a free standing pole (fnar) and attach them around the top...towel rods (fnar #2)...add a hook to the top and make a banana hanger (fnar #3)...paper towel holder...door knob (fnar #4) (OK, I'll stop, almost anything made of dildos is a double entendre...and is it dildos or dildoes?)...put 4 together for a picture frame...use to cast molds for chocolate, ice, etc....attach small hooks around to store earrings and other small jewelry...pen or paperclip holder for desk....legs for small ottoman...

Man, I agree with everyone else...I wish I had access to a whole mess of reject sex toys!

DevilDoll is just cool sounding (least I think so)...

It conjures up cool images on it's own, and it's also tied to all kindsa good stuff I like too...  it's the title of a GREAT creepy black and white horror movie that I love .. a 'billy band I dig... a cool Roy Orbison song...



Nice name. It's also a song by X...   Smiley


Yep. And a song by X.

Which is now stuck in my head!  Smiley
6030  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Hemming Jeans...again... on: November 02, 2005 09:38:11 AM
I just bought a lovely pair of dark rinsed jeans but they are waaaay too long. I saw several posts listing a link about how to hem jeans and preserve the original hem, but when I click the links it diverts to an ad for Z. Cavaricci and I can't find anything about hemming. I don't sew much and I'm reluctant to cut on my new lovelies, but I want to wear them this weekend. Has anyone hemmed jeans and reattached the original hem with success? Should I just wait and go to a tailor? Yikes! Please help! I should note...I don't have a sewing machine. Is hand hemming jeans sheer madness? I hand hem regular pants with decent results... (please feel free to tell me to stop...back away from the jeans...)
