the deconstructed

(mood enhancer just added) I took those shirts apart yesterday and when I was finished I wondered what I would do with the pile of collars, cuffs and plackets . These little headless creatures are not quite what I had in mind. These are benign and silly looking compared to the scary things that I keep seeing in the corner of my mind since Jim showed me this silly thing. At least I got it out of my system before I put all the rest of that great seersucker together. Now I'm I'm sure I'm going to have to do something to it - as yardage goes it's pretty boring. No wonder they put the shirts in the Goodwill box!

Since I hit rebound street yesterday I'm too scared to risk looking at what Jim showed you, so I'm going to pass...but these headless creatures on this background have strong potential...keep going!

Fun
I did check out what Jim showed you and held my breath until the end. Now, how does anyone find this stuff?

I'm glad I'm not the only one to use plackets! I think they look terrific, and the headless creatures remind of something out of Pan's Labyrinth or Jim Woodring http://jimwoodring.blogspot.com/

You're really onto something here...
