I thought it would be fun to pop up a random display of cards or clippings or whatever on the the bit of the bathroom wall which can be gazed upon while sitting on the loo. Remember it used to be de rigueur of the 90s share house to have a Valhalla movie poster and an amusing display of delights on the back of the bathroom door? Maybe it still is, I’m a little out of touch. I’m sure it was partially to detract from the fact that the share house lav had not been cleaned since before Nirvana played at the Palace. But it made me feel nostalgic just thinking about it.
So – my 2009-style toilet door (wall) plan is to change the selection frequently to keep it interesting for the wee ones (ooh – that’s a clever double entendre). I am sure exhibits will wander (Picasso’s Weeping Woman style), and I am sure there will be guest curators and weeks when it all looks dreadful, but that’s all part of the fun. Most of this stuff comes out of my box of pretty cards and bits which will one day go on my ‘inspiration board’ when I finally get around to being that kind of gal. I thought I might record what goes up here.
So the first “exhibition” includes (left to right) a postcard from years ago from a kind Loobylu reader.
Look at those great faces. They are dolls that appeared in an exhibition at Steinberg & Sons in LA of works by Cody Thompson – I have tried finding a website for Cody, but can’t find anything now, except some random images from blogs around the place.
Next up is a postcard from Beci at Princess Tina. The tiger-bird reminds me so much of some of the books we had as kids.
Along to the right of that is a postcard from Kimono House – Japanese Textiles.
Pretty. That one’s for Amelia who is into all things Japanese at the moment. And lastly (but not leastly) we have one of Hillary from Wee Wonderful’s gorgeous cards.
Did you know Hillary has an etsy shop now?
Stay tuned for our next installation!
