> Tres Chere: Heads Are Gonna Roll

Heads Are Gonna Roll

This weekend while working on posts for the blog I couldn't help but think am I in over my head? I said to myself, "Don't be a knuckle head silly, everything is just fine". I just need to get my head out of the clouds.

I came up with a "How To" post on using a doll head in an empty picture frame. Such a great idea! The doll head cost 50 cents and the picture frame was only $1.00. Perfect! I will give everyone a heads up to let them know how easy and inexpensive this project is.





I simply cut a slit in each side of the bust added some Gorilla Glue and positioned it into the frame. Easy and super chic!

As I was putting the doll head project together, I realized that I have a sick fixation for heads and busts! I was completely level headed while I looked around my house and counted all of the heads. Then I felt lightheaded...holy crap they are everywhere! I even have two of the same heads! I am head over heels for "Heads". OMG..this is embarrassing! I wanted to bury my head in the sand.

After gaining my composure and with my head held high I grabbed my camera and started taking pictures. Once I was done, I had to get my head together and figure out how to display them on the blog. So I headed over to Picnik and created a collage. Perfect!

Yep folks...there's that many of them.


Who is this #2? Who cares, it's a head.

These crack me up....they are just so random.
Amazing! I have a matching Beethoven bust on top of a Beethoven book. Ha Ha!
Even my poor dog Roxie is a victim. Head shots of the dog in our hallway.
This was her begging for food the other night...of course...just got her head.

Why do I have four Buddha heads? LOL

A Spartan Head? Really?

Wonder why I bought this book? Hmmm

So I saved the best for last. This one is in my garage. What was I thinking?


Yep, I am definitely sick in the head. LOL

Looks like you have been playing head games in your house...LOL!!! (Okay, it was the only thing I could think of!).

This is such a simply yet funky idea. I was even thinking that it would be cool if you could print out nametags and attach to the frame for a party.

Love all your 'head shots'. Especially love the Spartan! Where in the world did you find that one???

XoXo,

No, No, No, No, No. Totally keep that last one. You just need to add the leg lamp from A Christmas Story. That would be EPIC!!!

Jessica @ O. Alouette said...

I love this! Haha I like busts a lot too but my sick obsession is with hands. Like the ones that hold rings and jewelry. I would have a whole collection on top of my dresser if it didn't come across as creepy.

Very heady stuff you write about.
I am afraid to look around and identify all of my "collections."

That last bust will be perfect for the Gypsy Dreams party coming up Sept 10!

That is funny that you collected heads like that. I like most of your collection. I especially like the one that looks like a Greek Bust with her shoulders next to books.

Glo Sews said...

Thanks for joining the Bunny Hop party this week.
