Here's what's cookin' in the Sushipot kitchen....dingle-dangle ornaments! I've had such fun concocting these jolly xmas objects. Years of hoarding...errrr...collecting old-timey wooden bits 'n bobs has paid off. Now I just have to figure out how to give them a coat of varnish without gumming up their glorious dangliness ;) Then to photographing the whole crew....there are many, many others to choose from. I'm shooting to have them in the shop the first week of November. I'll keep you posted.

Raggedy Ann, mixed media assemblage
My mama heart strings were tugged a bit when Lizzie announced she was too old to dress up and go trick-or-treating this year. She's much more excited about the prospect of handing out candy to the neighborhood kiddos and seeing their costumes. I've been consoling myself by dressing up art dolls in the studio. Remember my little Raggedy Ann?

Lullaby, mixed media assemblage with dangle-y night sky
All tucked in and ready for dreamland. This little one is making me sleepy....y-a-w-n...maybe it's time for a nap?

Meet Miss Prism....she tends to cast a kaleidoscope of color everywhere she turns. Kinda like the prism that resides on the windowsill of my studio.

There has been a distinct rustling of jingle bells here at Sushipot as I work on all sorts of holiday goodies for the shop.
Lotsa vintage ornaments hanging around the studio these days including some kitschy, hand-painted wooden ones from the decade I was born.
Yes, the holiday blocks are coming along nicely and will be ready to go in the shop early next week. No....I didn't snip these snippets with giant shears....they are just a prop and the largest pair of scissors I own ;)
In other news we found a pair of acorn twinsies on a recent Autumn walk. There are always treasures to be found....you just gotta look.

This old jar opener has been hanging around my studio for years. I think I bought it back in Mobile, Alabama 'cuz I loved its chippy green handle and rusty toothiness. Still love 'em but she's more than ready to weave her web in the great wide world....shouldn't be too hard for a gal named Sesame.
