Look What I Got - A Double Sauce Post

My two most recent bARTer Sauce trades are both terrifying and also very, very, very, super-duper cool. First, Nik from Scary-Art.com (who is a rather frequest Sauce trader) gave me this painting of a Two-Headed Boy and a Robotic Bug sculpture for an Evil Looking Doll Lamp and a Space Alien in a Ship. Two-Headed Boy makes me giggle. He has so many eyes. And the teeny, tiny fangs are terrifying. And the Robotic Bug...... He's silver ....and POINTY!

And then on Wednesday, Gary traded me these four "Punked Up Nun" sculptures. I put them in the window of my shop and people have been walking by all day and shreiking. Awesome.

If you're asking yourself, "What the hell is she talking about?" then you probably don't know about bARTer Sauce, my experiment in trading for art and odd objects. You should check it out. It's sometimes funny.

Look What I Got

The lovely Betsy from Baddins Design is one of my new favorite people. She was in the midst of the "skirt controversy" of early 2008 when my friend Sara totally ganked an awesome skirt that I wanted to buy out from under me and wears it often. Betsy made said skirt and was selling it at the Punk Rock Flea Market. She also makes pillows that say, "Fuck you very much." And now I have a pillow that says, "Fuck you very much." It is awesome. Anyway, Betsy wanted to know how to use a knitting machine and I said I would teach her. And I did. And in exchange she made another one of the best skirts in the world and gave it to me. I love her and will do whatever she wants until the end of time. I can't stop staring at this skirt: She also just did a bARTer Sauce trade with me. She's hilarious. Seriously hilarious. I got the fake fetus of her grandmother's dead twin sister that they found while doing an autopsy and she got a teeny tiny landscape painted on an actual pill. Here we are making the trade: Betsy runs an Etsy shop, Baddins Design where she sells her art and her vintage finds. She is special. You should check it out and buy a bunch of stuff from her. And if you don't feel like doing that, then just read her blog, Betsy Makes Things.

Are you asking yourself rigt now, "What the hell is bARTer Sauce?" Good. Because I'm not telling. Live in wonder. Jerks.

Look What I Got

I call it "Super Bright Kisses" for reasons I think might be obvious. I recently did a bARTer Sauce trade with a nice lady named Laura from my EtsyRAIN group. She makes pottery and stuff and sells it in her Etsy shop: LAS Designs. You should buy one of her mugs. I have two and I drink coffee out of them all the time. I highly recommend coffee -- and Laura's mugs. Read Laura's story that came with the bARTer Sauce trade. Read about the trade. Here's some pictures of Laura's super-cutie-potato-face son who came to the trade too and seemed obsessed with Shower Art. He's a winner in my book:

Here's Laura and I doing the trade at the September First Thursday Art Walk in Pioneer Square. I always stick my tongue out for the first picture for some reason. And the second shot is where I go for moderately normal. If you would like to trade me for "Super Bright Kisses" or anything else that is currently available through bARTer Sauce, get in touch -- rosalie(at)bartersauce.com. What the hell is bARTer Sauce? It's an experiment in trading for art and odd objects. The only rules: Whatever I get, I trade for something else. And everyone who trades with me, has to tell me a story.
