finally! after mucho ado and two quite busy weeks, i have created and placed my disintegration piece outside. i opted to go with a limb (most who know me know of my penchant for doll parts). i wrapped her in chicken wire, weird old paper, cheese cloth, old thread, hemp twine and a piece of vintage lace that was waaay, way too pristine and white to look at. oh, and a little rose that has sat around here for about two years (it will be prettier after being out in the elements, i think). i topped her with a little nest and wired in an image of a fetus (penchant for anatomy too, si!). then, made a nest-like bracelet for her out of more chicken wire, curly willow and a little round metal thingy. a washer, i think it is. i like her. but i shall shush so you may peek:
here are some close up shots to make this post a tad more colorful:
because we have mean-ass cats (as in the will gladly attack any or all of my stuff), i hunted out a spot i didn’t think they would be as likely to go as if i had put it in one of our gardens (i wanted it with the flowers or veggies, but oh well) — i put it on an old over-grown stack of wood pallets (told my husband he had no need for them but he insisted on keeping them last summer — see the result!?). hopefully the cats stay away. just in case, i wrapped “her” in some of the vines to keep her cozy:
happy day! it’s just now starting to rain. can’t wait to see how our little babies turn out after weeks and weeks of this lovely-awful weather.
