HAPPINESS IS A BOX OF SNAKES



 To know me, is to know my all time favorite art is folk art. Although, if you sent me a painting by Paul Gauguin I certainly wouldn't complain, I'm not a snob, just a misfit. So knowing this you can see my delight, when in the mail, came a box of bottle cap snakes all the way from Missouri. Thank you Cathy Cardin you are the best!

So cool! I would drape them around my topiaries on my living room mantel, or wind them around my dining room chandelier! K

I almost didn't read this post because I hate snakes so much. Just like a car wreck, I had to look. Glad I did because bottle cap snakes I can handle. Very cool!

I knew snakes needed to be at your home! They are easy to take care of: a lttle rain, sunshine and admiration will do. cc

I find these snakes oddly fascinating. I have told a couple of my friends about your box of lovely folk art bottle cap snakes with their cute heads with eyes and little tippy tails on the end.

I am going to start saving bottle caps I think and make a snake of my own. I just LOVE them. They seem strangely life-like as well to me.

Obviously I am not someone who fears snakes and would place them proudly on the mantle next to my tiny bandicoot iron rat. (But that is another story altogether!)
