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:

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:

as a reminder (not that anyone other than kerin currently knows of my blog), this is seth apter of the altered page‘s super fun disintegration collaboration.

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.
