I love words. People who know me will probably agree but more likely in terms of "she talks to much". ;-) For many years now I've been having a love affair with the word juxtaposition. Which loosely translated means to place side by side in unexpected combinations. It is a good word to express my style.....if I actually have one. I think it's the old leather and lace syndrome.
And so, in the creating of this assemblage fairy, I loved the idea of not giving her a crown but a top hat to go with her pink tulle skirt. Mixing the casualness of vintage brown pom poms with pearls. Hand painted roses mixed with stripes. A proper young fairy on her way to a ball, with just a touch of the unexpected.
I'm putting her up for auction tonight on Ebay. I'm having a hard time letting this one go so I'm debating with myself on whether to put a reserve on her. Hmmm....I guess I won't know until I actually list her. :-) Check her out on Ebay for more pictures.
