Sword Care Instructions
By: Maranda Russell

After sharpening,
dust the bejeweled hilt
and place the sword
in clean purple cloth.

Afterwards,
you may admire its sparkle
but do not take internally,
as metal is poisonous
and organs puncture easily.

Weird Outsider Art Sculpture Photo

When I see weird things, especially weird artistic stuff that fits into the category of folk or outsider art, I like to take pictures of them! This past weekend, my husband and I visited a little curiosities shop in downtown Fairborn, Ohio called The Secret Chamber House of Oddities and Artwork. They had this cool looking creature guarding their door, so I just had to get a photo of it:

I hope to return to that shop and maybe take some pics of some of the other cool stuff they had (like some awesome creepy dolls). I find stuff like this so inspiring for my own artistic style. The weirder – the better!!!
