French Artist Junior Fritz Jacquet
turns empty toilet paper rolls into works of art!
He creases and manipulates them
and then adds layers of color and varnish. How cool and Fun!
We should try this!
The Wee Peeple Newsletter
May 2013 Issue 75
It all started with an ordinary hookah-smoking caterpillar
sitting on a Mushroom...
And though you should live in a palace of gold
or sleep in a dried up ditch,
You could never be as poor as the fairies are,
and never as rich.
She stopped constructing Caterpillars, but the Dollmaker just kept on making
more and more Fairy Mushrooms!
Even the Wee Peeple became "Mushroom Peeple"
Where is the Dollmaker going with all these Mushrooms?
Three Ravens went a-walking...
And then the Dollmaker quite suddenly became interested in
the tilt and posture of Ravens....
Bees are alive and well in the Dollmaker's "Highway Garden"!
And they are busy pollinating Everything!
Another finished Arbor
and a hard-won, if temporary, Victory in the ongoing battle against
(Thanks Derrick and Lance!)

Congratulations Joel and Sarah!
A quick trip to the Texas City Dike for shells
and on to
Galveston and Ms.Tally's Mysterious Gardens
featuring amazing Teapot Totems...
...Bowling Ball Borders... and the Wall of Lost Soles!
Ms. Tally totally insisted that the Dollmaker should fill Larry's car with
cuttings from her Triple Purple Datura! (OH MY!)
Angel Trumpets in a variety of colors!
and there were So many more!
(oh tee hee goodie goodie!)
Thank You Tally for your gracious hospitality!
(now look here and see who else got to visit Tally...)
By the time the Dollmaker left Tally's Gardens, this Hookah-smoking Caterpillar
had "made so many friends" amongst Tally's collection of Wee Peeple Dolls,
that she decided he needed to stay...
One week later... on Memorial Day...
The Dollmaker visited
A Trading Frenzy went down with the Hatmaker
Actually, the Dollmaker ended up with Four New Hats!
LOVE LOVE LOVE Kathel's Hats!
...and then there was the inevitable... Clearing 23 years of stuff out of
the Wee Peeple Doll Shoppe...
