That's funny - the same person who won your Friday lingerie giveaway won your Allen Company Vintage giveaway in September! I happened to click on the link to the winner this week and recognized it...Then I realized it was because the person won another week. Strange that someone could win twice so close together! What a lucky lady!

Cathi said...

We have a clothespin sculpture here in Philly too:

(although I like the Belgian one more since it actually looks like it is clipping the earth!)

This is very cool. It reminds me of the Claus Oldenburg clothespin sculpture in Philly! I tried to see if the artist referenced that piece as an inspiration at all, but he did not. Just more proof we live in a Postmodern society, eh? : O )

Natasha said...

This made me chuckle. My friends neighbors do not like him because he is too lazy/busy to clean up his lawn. I sent him this picture and told him this would be icing on the cake if he made this happen in his backyard. Awesome...
