I made this for hubs, with fabric paint and an old pillowcase.  The song "Birdhouse in Your Soul" by They Might Be Giants always makes me think of him.

Originally, the lettering was done with a fine paintbrush on the pillowcase, but OOPS! I screwed up on the lyrics.  There goes an hour and a half of my life I'll never get back, over a song that I know by heart-- or at least, thought I did!  I painted over with white, looked up the lyrics, and tried again.  Huzzah! Success!






Anyways, thanks for looking, and please excuse the cat, Pablo.  There is no moving him when he's super comfy.

How is it that Firefly gets cancelled after one measly season, but Tim and Eric Awesome Show has had five ?!?

Instead of "Say I'm the only bee in your bonnet", which is right... I put "Say you're the only bee in my bonnet", which, when you think about it, is really odd and needy-ish.  Oops!
