First off, let me say how excited I am that
I really missed these challenges, and am glad to see them back. I also missed seeing the fascinating posts every week-
But on to the "Living" ShelvesI consider my shelves to be living, because they get messed with. A lot. Things get moved, reposed, transformed, replaced, added to. Also, because my roommate is a mild-mannered maniac, they occasionally get unusual things added or changed. It is, to me a living work of art, a labor of love and my favorite form of therapy. I have chosen my favorites here
|A thrift store find, in it's protective styrofoam|
|The Parrot statue is an endangered Puerto Rican Amazon- led me to look up info on them|
Toads are for luck.
|My Musashi Bamboo Katana, my Cold Steel Katana, and my grandfathers straight razor|
My Paul Chen Zatoichi is on the top rack, and another of the same is on the standing rack to the side
|the cold steel piece came from a pawn shop- $60|
But you came here for the toys, not the Objet's d'Art- oh the swords are functional, and live. They are the art of pure functionality, innovations in human tools. Grand-dads razor... is probably still shavable, but I don't shave, I just mow.
|Masterpiece Collector Coins and challenge coins|
|Transformers that kind of don't fit other shelves, but I can't put away|
in the back, it looks like Sam put Sumannus in timeout, because he is facing the wall
|Classics Shelf Right|
|Classics Shelf Left|
|Dinobots Plus, Wheeljack, Arcee, and Wheelie|
|More Dinobots and Combiners|
|Movie Optimus Primes...or would that be Optimi Prime?|
|Hot Wheels and Pop Culture Cars|
And of course nothing about me would truly be complete without my best buddies-
Cappy(on his shelf, microseconds past an amazing threat display at the camera, and I did not have it in video mode)
And Tango, my baby and closest confidant, He is as bad-ass as a bird can get. He is on my toy shelves every time my back is turned, trying to get his talons on that perfect cybertronian weapon that will let him wreck civilization and descend us all into barbarism and the rule of the strongest beak.
