I've made a slew of these blocks. This is the last one for a while because the laundry is piling up! (Who am I kidding? It's ALWAYS piled up!)



I like the placement of the sentiment (it's from an old book) because the 'a' makes him look a little cyclopsy Smiley





The rusty wire is actually new, as are the little crown at the top and the photo corners. The rusty hand forged square head nails on the sides are old things.



The photos are copies of originals in my collection of forgotten people.

I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.

I'm glad you make art instead of washing laundry because then we get to see things like this!

Ditto! The placement of the words are perfect. Also like the rusty horse shoeing nail. It is all amazing. Smiley

Crafting keeps the madness at bay. Or is it the cause?

Thank you! Thank you! I appreciate all of your nice words. I'm sure my husband will disagree about the laundry when he runs out of underwear, but I'll just blame it on all of you and your enabling.  Tongue

After all this time I just realized what your art reminds me of, Knicker. The Borrowers! Used to love that book as a kid, and must have read it more than a few times.  Smiley
