so i went to the thrift store a while back and came home with a dead fish. why did i come home with a dead fish? honestly, i have no idea. he was cheap, and he spoke to me. so i brought him home, and put him on the kitchen counter, and there he stayed for a good two weeks, until he spoke again. what did he say? he said "Luca Brasi sleeps with tha fishes!!" I'm the last person who's gonna argue with a statement like that. now he hangs on my living room wall.  I'm just waiting for him to tell me what the banner's supposed to say. So far he's been pretty quiet. (anybody know how to say "he rests" in italian?)





(the portrait is of Lenny Montana, the actor who played Luca Brasi in The Godfather)

That's hilarious, I love how the banner trails onto the backing. Your ideas/muses are brilliant.

I give myself very good advice, but I very seldom follow it.

That is awesome!  I just completed a Godfather-inspired...thing - can't say any more, though, with Christmas around the corner and my husband being a clever little spy.  But it definitely isn't this creative!  I love how the fish 'spoke' to you!  Just the other day a bangle bracelet told me it wanted to be a dream catcher!  Smiley
Alimentare Pesci means 'to feed fish' in English.  'Riposa' is Italian for 'he rests'.  'dorme con i pesci' means 'he sleeps with the fish'.

Hello!  "Alimetare pesci" means "fish food" but my Italian has always been bad Tongue

The more I look at this, the more I love it!
