the devil is in the details






today's details: a fight between a dinosaur and a feral creature on the east side of town, flying coffee, a half-finished journal page and a silly collage, red handprints that i've been finding ALL over town lately, and the most alarming, discovering that the staff at the cheese shop are not live human beings. all sorts of things lurk when one looks closely.

now, i'm off to a fun afternoon - a bunch of us are going to spend a few hours trading our castoffs - jewelry, clothes, magazines, & so on - a great way to get new things without having to go shopping!

LOL! I love your list of lists! It's great!

aimee said...

thanks, rachel - and not only do i know i'll never get around to making these lists, i highly doubt i'll even finish this page!!

anyone around town know the story behind these handprints? they look like they've been around for a while, but they are EVERYWHERE!

please sir said...

That sign is hilarious!!

Bella Sinclair said...

OH! That is a fantastic list of lists! Kind of reminds me of one of Linda Sarah's wonderful cities (sigh, where is she....). It's teeming with possibilities, even if you never finish it.

HA! There's a wealth of quirkiness in your town. Looks like Banksy has moved to Lawrence. That red hand looked a little scary, though. And I have no doubt that the undead make the very BEST cheese.

Hope you had a great time at the exchange. Show us your goodies!

Love your journal pages. I lived in Lawrence once,some 30 years ago. I lived on the west side of town and can't even remember the street name now. Thanks for the memories!!!

Samantha said...

great finds! i wonder if the undead shop owners and the red hand prints springing up around town are somehow related in a strange supernatural way. spooooky : D

BT said...

A list of lists, that's great. Oo-err, read hand prints? How very odd.

Great sign, dead cheese makers, have you checked the red prints for bits of flesh??? I hope you managed to off load some things and gain some 'new' stuff.

Nina Crittenden said...

The scissor gal made me smile- thanks Aimee! Maybe you should start making your own handprints around town to give the red handprinter a run for their money- hahaha!

michelle said...

Okay that is too funny. I got your comment with Francie's on Facebook and then I googled your name to see if you had a blog (I'm a curious cat!) and found it and lol cause I LOVE your blog! I didn't recognize your name but as soon as it started pulling up Artsyville I totally new who you were.

Thank you for your compliment!!!! Seeing it was you makes it so much sweeter.

aimee said...

Doug said...

love your stuff aimee. I've shot several photos of the handprints. wish I could catch the red-hand-person in the act - that would make for a tasty pic.
