At Charlotte's House

I picked up this gumball machine a few years ago at the thrift store and I’ve always loved it. But I only display it at Christmas because it’s a *bright*red and… that doesn’t match anything in my house. Thankfully… giving this guy a makeover couldn’t have been easier using Plutonium Spray Paint.

Bleek het het huis te zijn van interieurstyliste Petra Brandhorst van Knus XL, en sindsdien volg […]

Here T-Rex Tape Brute Force Merchandising positions the product as “Ferociously Strong.”  An on display example chides “See The Beast In Action” lifting 700lbs with a single strand of tape.

As I mentioned, I’ve had a slew of commissions since my good friend (and unofficial agent!), Liz, asked for a picture depicting Chester, the ‘doodle’ dog of friends of hers, and she presented the final framed picture to the recipients in the pub at a Doodle meeting. Daisy (not a doodle) was the first to […]
