The Gashlycrumb Tinies & Buddha Heads :0)

Doesn't quite go together, but oh well. I just had to share my little Buddhas that arrived today. I put them all together, so they would stay happy & smiling. But then I thought, ummm - what if they end up being like some of the mean & nasty people on Etsy and start fighting, or turning into "sock puppets". That would not be good. Here they all are, just as happy as clams {for now}. Let's have some fun and click on the picture. It will take you to my place on "Flickr" and you can pick out a little head to call your own. I already picked the silliest one for me, since I am about as silly as they come:

I just love them.....

And now for "The Gashlycrum Tinies". I just love them.

I found this lunchbox in my closet that I cleaned out yesterday while Etsy was down. A few of the little folks could actually represent some of the mean & nasty Etsiers as of late. I'll let you guess which ones. Now, here goes the whole alphabet ~ I hope you enjoy it.

  • A is for Amy, who fell down the stairs
  • B is for Basil, assaulted by bears
  • C is for Clara, who wasted away
  • D is for Desmond, thrown out of a sleigh
  • E is for Ernest, who choked on a peach
  • F is for Fanny, sucked dry by a leech
  • G is for George, smothered under a rug
  • H is for Hector, done in by a thug
  • I is for Ida, who drowned in a lake
  • J is for James, who took lye by mistake
  • K is for Kate, who was struck with an axe
  • L is for Leo, who swallowed some tacks
  • M is for Maud, who was swept out to sea
  • N is for Neville, who died of ennui
  • O is for Olive, run through with an awl
  • P is for Prue, trampled flat in a brawl
  • Q is for Quentin, who sank in a mire
  • R is for Rhoda, consumed by a fire
  • S is for Susan, who perished of fits
  • T is for Titus, who flew into bits
  • U is for Una, who slipped down a drain
  • V is for Victor, squashed under a train
  • W is for Winnie, embedded in ice
  • X is for Xerxes, devoured by mice
  • Y is for Yorick, whose head was knocked in
  • Z is for Zillah, who drank to much gin.

I hope you have a wonderful evening. Thanks for reading my ramblings. Oh, and all the new stuff is up in the shop, so please do check it out. xxoo ~ Kathy
