You'll go apes over the other piece of swinging junq'ue I promised.
I made him out of old gutter wire and stuffed him with mosses. I used him as a giant chia pet for a while but he literally had to be taken down and bathed in the sink to absorb the water he needed. Misting him daily would have taken too long. More junq'ue tomorrow comming................

The couches are too much.

Anyway to make a swinging junq'ue hawk?

Here are some toilets I found in an e-mail.

It sounds like Gabe's Garden has a red gazing ball now.

The moss monkey is cute. The hanging piece of a couch is pathetic. Functional, yes. Ugly, double-yes.

Equilibrium -I did like the couch, mice and all but if you give me any more of your junk (Please do) I'll just have to show you my huge rat!!!!!!!

Lorox-Nice set of pots. I'd give them a flush

Swinging junq'ue hawk? Hmmmmmmmmmmmm
Take 2 clothes hangers and straighten the small part on both.
Form the rest into 2 separate wings.
Wrap gutterguard wire around your wing forms. (It bends really easy)
Stuff them with moss as needed.
Make a head-body-tail form out of the gutterwire. Dont forget to stuff!
Poke the straight part of the wings into the body and bend as needed to attach well.
Tie a piece of heavy fishing line to both wings to simulate flight or into its body.
I'd tell you to add tallons but he might get my rat.

Stoloniferous- Be ware of the rat!!!!!!! I'll tell you where you can shove your ball....

Rat junq'ue debut soon.......

There he is!

Show us your Junq'ue art !-dscf4003.jpg

I call him ROAD DENT

I used a crackled vase for his body
an old outdoor Christmas light fixture for a face
Clamshell ears
Curly scrap of wire for a tail
and added crumpled rusty wire whiskers
He sits upon a crackled piece of auto glass window

Boy was he ever skittery!!!!!!!! I first found him trying to chew his way into another thread so I chased him over here where I found him crawling under that couch on someone elses user screen. I kicked the couch real good (and me) and he finally jumped onto the screen. He's scared stiffless
