Cool... and Haha!!

I have 2 things to share today, thanks to the Free People Clothing blog (they always find the coolest things to share! Love it!)

Firstly, the 'cool'... Just look closely:

Yes, that is Snow White & the 7 Dwarfs sitting comfortably in the eye of a needle. Yes, it is real. No biggie.

Yes, that is Peter Pan, Wendy, Tinkerball & a couple of lost boys perched easily on a fishing hook. Pfft.

This artist Willard Wigan carves these little sculptures out of single grains of rice. Without using a magnifying glass. (To view them, the average human being needs to use a microscope). He then paints them using a hair from the back of a housefly. Is that not bizarre? Oh yes, and this really is the Statue of Liberty nestled in a pin head!! :

Next... Funny funny :)
Converse's coolest new invention: Shoe Jeans. Forget "Pants first, then shoes". With Shoe Jeans, it's "Pants & shoes first". The shoes are attached at the bottom!!! Heh heh heh...

To give credit where credit is due, the jeans are the invention of designer Sebastian Errazuriz. Also credited to his name is a belt made entirely of buckles, a skirt/top combo made entirely of zips, a formal dress made of rubber gloves, a jacket made of teddybears, and soccer shoes made out of soccer balls... and that's just his fashion inventions! His site is well worth a look.
I'm back from the staff retreat and am WIPED OUT. So this is farewell for now, but I do promise to keep sticking more crafty pics in here... soooo looking forward to that class!!!!
