So I think the pin is done.
And the 'I think' part implies just a touch of uncertainty.
You be the judge:
Also freeing was deciding on her name. My friend Erin suggested Matilda. No longer being referred to simply as 'the bowling pin lady', she has a name. I think she looks like a Matilda, don't you? Here's another angle:
So I may have to branch out. My friend Angel suggested a mermaid pin, using colorful painted seashells as decoration. Maybe a pin covered in broken plate bits.
And then we have the couples idea. I'm thinking an older couple.
Lots of ideas are brewing, and I already have an order for a Virgin Mary pin.
God knows I have the pins - four cases of them - in my garage.
The projects are lining up in my head like, well, bowling pins.
It feels good to create something sparkly, quirky and beautiful that's made completely out of discarded items.
Some folks may think the bowling pin lady's kind of gaudy, eccentric and tacky, but therein lies her charm.
Am I talking about the bowling pin lady or myself? Hmmm.
