so much soma goodness..

look what i got in the mail!!!!!!!!!!

my newest junk partner in crime, somavenus sent me this INCREDiBLE package of goodies. my heart nearly exploded when i opened it. this girl is nothing short of genius! not only is she an amazing artist in her own right, she plucked out all these found objects for me to use in my art. how she ever parted with them i'll never know. everything from a hard bound copy of '10 secrets of bowling,' (thanks to her, my 'zen of bowling' series can now be DOUBLED!) to a piece of decayed car metal she kiped from a walmart parking lot. she delighted in the fact that no one else had picked it up before her..now that's MY kinda gal. as much as i'd love to live near her, i know we'd be fighting over who gets what on our daily walks in the neighborhood.

thank you so much somavenus...you're my angel with happy hair.

Very Cool mail goodies!!! I LOVE found scrap metal too- I go on all sorts of long walks, looking for it. I find a lot on the railroad tracks and in the creekbed when it's dry. :-)

!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i'm so glad you got it all safe and sound :DDD i almost died when i saw the not-so-great-shape bowling book!! I immediately thought of you but didn't realize it was "the book" until i flipped through a few pages and saw the bowling guy!!!!! I was prepared to pay anything (there was no price and it was on a rusty old shelf in the garage of the estate sale) for it to send along your way! I had to cut the goodies in half -- i had lots more things to send but wanted to spread it out a little.. makes it a little more exciting! so expect more like this on another random day ;D

you're too right. I laughed.. i cried -- thinking about what would happen if we were in the same town... it's MINE! I SAW IT FIRST! I was so excited to see that piece of car still sitting safe and sound in the parking lot -- i can't believe i thought someone would actually take it.. ha!

got your email and i lovvvvvve the trade idea.. i'll email you back soon!!!

xo! enjoy the junk ;)

I know the feeling!
just like x-mas morn, it was..

That's just what I thought when I got me copy of "Lost & Found" (although, for some strange reason, I thought it with a Cockney accent, Oi did! :). Btw, did I mention just how much I'm loving it??? I'd praise it even more but right now I'm very jealous of both you and Chuck for getting to take off for the Big Apple! :) The only thing that's keeping me sane is that I have a *heated* pool!!! :o)
