2000!!!!!!!

To celebrate my 2oooth sale (yeah, it's mine-blogging. I can't even) I'm giving away this loverly pair of horse hair earrings with cones made of a toy tin plate and a ceramic and polymer art bead each.
On with the comments!!!
So MrDevices-in-law came for a visit.
There's a fan of mine in their leetle town who sent along a shit-ton of antique gloriousness which I had to photo for you.
 Of course, these were taken under nighttime lighting, so deal with it.
 
 Here's a bunch of paper goodness some of which I'm actually considering resining into a cuff. I know!
Crusty goodness.
Cut steel awesomesauce.
 Amazeball MOP.
 So guess what I've been messing with non stop lo these last three days?
Oh yeah. Actually, since I've taken these I think I've finished them all.
 Just imagine them in my good photos! Wow, right?
Sure some are way Victorian without the requisite tribal or cosmic, but oh well. It's my hot body, I do what I want!
 Robert sez he can't see that these buttons below are little buckles. Dafuq.
 And these are frames for something. Ugh, so many photos are waiting to be taken.
They'll have to keep waiting cuz today my bite-sized nephew from Cali is here and he is gonna be getting such a snorgling!

Oh dear, I feel an episode of jealousy coming on at all the goodies your fan sent! I do belive I see my name in there--seriously!!!

Holy mackerel, I want a fan like that. Oh, wait, I would have to have a blog and an etsy store for that wouldn't I??? Dang, I always get confused about why I don't get goodies in the mail...........no one knows me. Well, Janet knows me, but I think more than one person has to know me before I would get goodies..............I am rambling, I always do that when I try to be funny.

Anywho, I would love to have some horse hair earrings. They look really cool and I am sorta cool. Well, more geeky than cool, but geeks are cool, or is it just other geeks who think geeks are cool. Mmmmm, now I have to Google to see if there has been a study on this.

Snorgling little ones is good - getting new stuff is better - and I just named and shamed you as my main muse for my new jewellery (see that UK spelling?) on my blog.......peeps in the UK are skint and scared though so hey ho......anyway, your stuff and pics are awesome as always....

Congrats on the 2000 :) AND on that box of awesomesauce ;) I keep finding fabulous little 'theengs' and thinking of you... but then once I get home with them my brain totally shuts off the ideas >.<

seems like all i can think about is that my daughter is trying to learn the stick shift so she can drive herself to school and she's learning in an old geo that is red and she adores it, but it's really hard to drive as the clutch is so tough! so, she perseveres and tries and tries and tries.
anyway.
i was thinking your stash is pretty cool too. what a wonderful gift. beauty buttons!

I noticed that 2,000 this am on my usual sneaky stalk into the shop of wonders. Only another 1,000 from world domination, and we will ALL be much better looking for it. Congratulations and keep it coming, Mrs. Devices!

Kimberly said...

Wow congratulations, I was opening up blogger just to reel back to comment on your last awesome post cuz I'm so behind on my commenting it's not funny. and then lookit this milestone you goddess of crust and wonderment.
How cool that you have a generous fan like that. You put the fan in fanci you do.
Yes, the horsehair earrings. I would dust my shoulders with those. Count me in!

gretchen said...

I had to count the zeros...one, two, three?!?

I just love seeing all your bits and bobs and how they inspire you to awesomeness. Your sense of style is so great. Congrats on the milestone! Here's to the next 2000... may it take half as long to reach! Enjoy the day. Erin

Lela said...

Big congrats on 2000! It boggles my mind.

Dude I actually got MAD with jealousy. Like cranky, like who the hell gives her crusty old buttons, I DESERVE THEM MORE I AM THE CRUSTY BUTTON LOVER ROUND THESE PARTS - like I have a legal right to them or something. Even though I'll do nothing with them except sit in my cave and stare at them, cause I don't do crusty much any more. What's up with that?

Also WTF 2000. I swear I looked in like 3 days ago and it was 1974 and I was all LOL I was born then! And now look, is the new millenium. I'm drunk on 3am.

Sparrow said...

I think also I'm jealous that you have fans in your country. Everyone who loves me is overseas. Stupid novelty island home. Also don't count me in for the giveaway, I wouldn't wear them- my neck is short and they'll just brush on me and I'll be all AHH IT'S A SPIDER GET IT OFF cause I'm mental like that.

laura said...

LOVE those horsehair earrings. I sent a link to some of your earrings to my hubs like, aren't these beauuutiful? My secret hope is he will surprise me with a purchase. Like, hint..hint. Um. A year later and he finally caught on and he bought me a pair of your earrings! The "what you seek" ones. LOVE them! He can't remember his username and password to Etsy, so this is my feedback! :)

I”m green with envy on that loot you scored...i love you i hate you but mostly i love you but yeah those old steel buttons like you gotta be kidding me someone gave all that stuff to you ...dang.
congrats you deserve all the sales you are the goddess queen of the makeage.. and the tutes didn’t hurt either.
So make tons of money...I hope beyonce or rhianna or or katy perry or madonna finds your stuff and makes you so popular you can’t even keep up with it all.

Flotsam Tide said...

What a milestone, 2000 is a testament to your amazing abilities and glorious devices. I still wear the bracelet I bought from you so often and always when I do art shows...it's my lucky piece. That was 1000 ago. WOW. Congrats my friend.

Julie said...

Here's to the next 2000!! You are incredibly talented and you make my day when you post new pieces.
