Today's obsession : Monkey Brand black tooth powder

I want to try this! I want dental cleanliness! I am going to make an effort to leave my house and locate this in person! Perhaps tomorrow in Manhattan! Or maybe a road trip to mysterious Queens this weekend!

Has anyone tried this brand? I'm almost finished up with the Uncle Harry's tooth powder so I wanted to try something new.

Free house-shaped souvenir? Yes, please!

I was at a restaurant in Venezuela and the waiter heard I was collecting some souvenirs made in Venezuela so he gave me this house-shaped napkin holder. Without hesitation it went directly into my bag along with a nicely designed packet of sugar and an old-school coca-cola bottle. How did he know about my love of all things house-shaped?

Off topic: Sal thinks the lines on the left side of the new blog header look like "squoooooshed cupcakes". Please note no cupcakes were harmed during the making of that drawing, it is just a yarn suggestion, maybe I will fix it, or not.

my first wedding cake topper!

Commissioned by my friend for his wedding this Saturday! These are two of his characters.

I spent all last week working on these, I told him he owes me a fancy ice cream sundae for sure. :D

Italian children's shoes

I love the way these look. Maybe the start of a new collection?
