Two Boys, One Polaroid, & A sMacTack


The photo in my previous blog post is, as the caption states, my most recent Flickr upload after a bit of a hiatus.  Here is the actual setup, including the original polaroid (which I'd desaturated and brightened for Flickr) being held by Artie, one of my antique Schoenhut dolls.  Willie, to his right (you the viewer's left) is holding an original sMacTack which I make (and posted about in July) and which I shall be giving away... well, not this one, but another one... to a random drawing of my Facebook Fan Page fans.  So maybe you would like to consider becoming a fan if you aren't already!

This is really cool. Very disquieting yet cuddly at the same time. A good combination! Happy Thanksgiving! xox

You've got me intrigued, Johann, let me come take a look! :)

jim bradshaw said...

wow! where do you find such old dolls and great things to shoot?

sMacThoughts said...

Jim, right here in my home... it pretty much resembles an antique toy museum around here! :)

Those dolls are *amazing*! What a great shot of 'em. And just look at those little striped stockings!

sMacThoughts said...

I know, I just love Willie's stockings!

Still cool looking though!

Hilarious, Dean.... yet you look! :) Again, really so sweet, they are. It's always humorous to me how grown men find fear in dollies. :)

How interesting! LOVE this photo! Like brothers that still love each other after having been through so much. :)

sMacThoughts said...

Yes, they are like brothers, Crystal...only they didn't grow up together, but when Artie came to live with us, Willie immediately became his best friend, and they've never been apart since!
