Sometimes you need to be reminded of the child inside you. This creation is that reminder. The hat is a collage of nursery rhyme music and has tags that spell, LAUGH. Inside are wood blocks that say BE. Paper cut out letters that say Silly. Be Silly! In front of those words is a little wood dog with a tiny party hat. The back side says, "Be Happy" with a little wood pig in a party hat. The glass is soldered to the wood base using metal tape.
This is one of my favorite assemblages. It makes me smile, with fond memories of youth. So my friends, smile and remember to BE SILLY!
Artfully yours- Nina
