Meet Ophelia

2 years ago...wow! has it really been that long ago?...I was RAOKed with a head. A styrofoam head for modeling hats or wigs or what-have-you. This was back in the day when I didn't have a digital camera to instantly capture and document my life in pictures. I think I mentioned then that Nathaniel took it upon himself to decorate my foam head....her name is now Ophelia...and I promised to post some pictures for your viewing pleasure. Never one to to break a promise, I've included her pictures from a recent photo shoot. She's been a welcomed addition to the family; well loved and received by everyone. If you look closely at the picture to the right you'll see some of her battle scars. She and the cat don't get along so well for what ever reason, you may notice that the top of her head has been used to sharpen claws. Geof gave her a nose job, too. Apparently he wanted to know what a styrofoam nose tasted like. Must not have been very good because he hasn't sampled any more of her. Nathaniel is responsible for the make up. I think he did a great job with it...which is only slightly disturbing! And so, that is Ophelia...just thought you might like to meet her.

Ok, I haven't lost my mind...completely. I guess I'm just in a silly mood. I still haven't gotten any yarn for my next baby blanket and the apron for Geof still isn't made. What have I been doing, you ask? My weekends are now consumed with helping Nathaniel restore a 1976 Chevrolet Cheyenne pick up. That counts as crafty, right? It should. This was bought brand new by my Mom's brother, he sold it to her, my Dad gave it to me to tear around in the fields when I was like 13, and now Nathaniel is the proud owner. Ahh, the circle of vehicular life! So, if you're keeping score this P.O.S. makes two, yes, TWO vehicles from 1976 that we own. How special. The pick up is being restored to be used as a farm vehicle, and it's turned out to be a great learning tool for me. I've always wanted to understand a little more about what makes a vehicle run, now that I have a great teacher and "project" I'm doing just that! Another plus is going into an auto parts place and somewhat knowing my shit and watching the men in there melt into babbling puddles. I am woman here me ROAR!!!

My foam head has been dropped several times and has dents all over her too-the price of beauty I guess.

Cool on the truck!
