Piggy you rosin up your bow and play your fiddle hard
The devil went to a thrift shop, he was looking for a soul to steal.
He was in a bind 'cos he was way behind: he was willin' to make a deal.
When he came across this old pig sawin' on a fiddle and playin' it hot.

Ring-Ring! Retro Phone Bags Are Calling!
If you missed it last time
, here's another 70's telephone purse
-- in which the phone actually works
. (In case you don't know Jack, or don't remember when phones were plugged in things, you'll need access to a phone jack to make this old bag phone work.)
If that's not a-cord-ing to your taste, how about a retro 60's handbag decorated with coiled phone cords
? (Disclaimer: Found in my parents' eBay listings.)

Warning: Lame Doodle Ahead
Jeesh, could Laura
make Doodle Week #2
any more complicated than asking us to doodle an entire world? In a pincushion teacup, no less. Thankfully, we can twist the theme a bit, however we are inspired. And as my beverage of choice is Diet Coke, and my world view easily put into an icon, I was able to doodle something. Something lame. But Blogger is being a nasty thing and won't let me upload images to my own server, so you'll have to go here
to see it. Or not. It doesn't really matter because it's your turn to doodle.
