I did quite a bit of stalking and discovered she liked lime green, skulls, and odd (I do mean odd) things. I was very excited about these prospects before I even went shopping for my supplies.
The only thing I purchased first-hand was the skull. All else was random things i had or found in various junk and thrift stores. I have never had so much fun shopping, looking for just the right bit to add.
It began with just the hockey skate and I added wheels (casters from an old bureau) because a skate will not stand on its own. The thing does roll along nicely if ya want it to..... I added a kickstand, removable, at the last minute.
I wish to thank the daughters of LadybugsAndBumblebees for sharing some of their beach finds with me last summer. I was so happy to have real crab arms to put here.
I put in that funny sign, hidden on the bottom, taken from one of the packages I found of tiny doll parts.
It was quite the decision as to when, if and how to add cutsie to an otherwise darkish piece.
I often worked on it in the safest way I knew how, upsidedown, on an electric can opener.
There were so many things sticking out in all directions, and delicately I might add, that I panicked for a bit as to how to get this thing safely from VT to OH!!
I am not much of an engineer, much more of an artsy fartsy gal, but I DID understand that columns hold weight really well, so I used gift wrap tubes for a support system while shipping. And gorilla tape, lots of that!
It was sooo hard to let my old TV bulbs go, I have been collecting for years, but I said to myself, "didn't your mother teach you to share?"
This project was such a blast.
