my bank!

bettycbowenAugust 2, 2008

I'm finally home and in front of a computer, so I can properly thank adaisy777 for my AWESOME bank! I also want to show the piece of art it will live next to -

you see, around here, potatohead is kind of a local icon, since Cushing is home to artist/printmaker Rob Smith who has used this character in his work for many many years. So - I was a perfect person for this bank! Rob hasn't seen it yet, he will be jealous.

And Rob's - this is apparently an actual historical event

What's in it, is giant glass jewels including a couple of very cool thick stars (I've never seen these before), and a "change of face" for potatohead! I hope this pic shows it ok.

While I'm at it, Cathy asked me to post a photo of her amazing bank - she brought it over to my house last night for a visit. I think her artist's name is Ramona, forgive me if I'm wrong - I think she posted the photo also, since I definitely remember the tail ruffle! The colors are very beautiful. Gold metallic grout. We thought she looked good on a scarf I brought back from Venice.

adaisy, you have a wonderful sense of humor and I love that you included another face. Geez, what will all of you think of next? What a great thing that this piece went to Bettyc under the circumstances. How fun!

From another daisy(me)!

adaisy. Great idea and wasn't it so cool that it went to Bettyc who can really appreciate her local flavor.

And yes, I remember that frilly piggy with cool pierced ears!1 ANd that blanket it the background looks like they were made for each other.
