This is a box I painted and burned words into. It is for the show next week. I know, I know, now it looks like I am on a Mary obsession, maybe it’s true, but I have obsessed over her since I was a little Catholic kid. I had pictures of her in my purse.
On my walls. With the Bay City Rollers And Leif Garrett.
And, pictures of her in my head, every time I was praying. I always felt she understood me…and I still do. Probably more so.
That said, it seems she is popular with other folks, especially when teamed with the Beatles. So…I am shamelessly exploiting her.
(I asked, she is OK with it)
The problem is, is…It was a cigar box. Good cigars. It closes like a vacuum. But getting it opened is a bitch. Might not be a good selling point, unless someone wants to keep their cigars fresh. Or the ants off their cookies.
The inside, I covered with this cool velvety paper.
If not I’ll put in Etsy.
I wish when you put something in ‘your store’ it would actually be out of the house!! Where do you put things you can’t sell??
Or, possibly, I’m the only one with this problem.
PS. Check the link under here. My Mom sent it to me and it's worth your time :)
