First of all, hope everyone had a great Chinese New Year and Valentine’s Day. I am so sad that the great Alexander McQueen is no longer with us. Who else is going to design crazy animal-themed outfits? He will be sorely missed.
Recently I adopted some cute toys from the op-shop, they both have crook legs. I love collecting funny toys because these pre-loved toys have been abandoned and it is up to me, someone who will once again cherish and play with them. Also because collecting unwanted toys is easier than unwanted pets.
You can see here that Mr. Caterpillar has lost his 4th right distal limb. Was it ripped off, amputated or bitten off? If only he could talk. Well, he survived the incident and I think he has more character now that he has only 7.5 legs.
My rayon top was a flea market find from Zurich. Wooden art deco earrings, pelican brooch and belt from vintage shops, Isabel Marant shorts, Marc Jacobs runway booties. The pelican is having a good conversation with the bird.
This strange toy ‘talks’ when you push his chest. His torso is segmented too! I love his teethy grin and his hook leg. ‘Arrrr!’
What’s your favourite toy you have collected over the years?
