Something Different

Christy from Columbia Lily Designs emailed me a while back to ask if I'd be interested in a stack of funky Seventies craft magazines. She said some of the projects reminded her of the kind of things I like.

I think this is the kind of thing Christy had in mind. Aren't they wonderful? That onion! And the goofy grin on the tomato!

On the other hand, I really hope this isn't what she had in mind:


What the heck? It couldn't be. Those aren't really.... No way. Are they...?


Why, yes, it's the freakiest craft idea of all time: Bone art. "Would the chicken breast bone make a better beak than the wedge-shaped beef piece? Those lamb chop ribs will make perfect wings, and the chicken drumstick will give the owl a perch."


Um. Gag? I have no words.
Christy, thanks again. Despite this grisly discovery I really enjoyed looking through the magazines. Thank you for thinking of me!

My husband's grandmother used to make Santa sleighs out of turkey carcasses - I actually saw them with my own eyes. She did very meticulous work but she had absolutely no taste. In her hands, garbage art really stayed garbage. Even my MIL didn't save most of it after Grandma died LOL.

Bone art is really gross. They did a lot of seed art and string art though in the 70's. Those veggies remind me of the fruit they used to advertise koolaid. Well it wasnt actually koolaid it was called something else but I cant remember what right now...
