That's right, she is entombed in some bottle of sticky thick booze. I don't know if it started out sticky and thick but it is now. There is a little open cavity in the center so she is not all wet herself and she is perched on top of a music box that plays "Le Bleu Danube". Some booze company named Bols made her and the bottle was made in France. I think she is from the 50's though I am not 100% sure. At any rate, she is mine now, gifted to me on my birthday. Her life as a gag gift is over as she will perch somewhere in my studio now. Maybe she needs a name? Something french. Any suggestions?
Isn't she beautiful? All captive in her bottle amidst a rainshower of falling gold flakes. I don't know why but I am such a sucker for this type of thing but I am. Someone gave it to my sister as a gag gift for her fortieth birthday and I immediately coveted her. Who thought this up? In the age of mass produced in China plastic heavy trinkets, I think the thought and quality behind something like this is so wonderful. This is the full view of her:
It was a nice low key birthday which is how I like them. We went to an outdoor concert and saw lots of people we knew and listened to some good blues. In blog tradition, I will be sending out a little box of goodies as I do on each of my birthdays. How about leave a comment with a suggestion for a name for the lady trapped in the booze bottle. I will pick someone randomly sometime soon. I have already started putting things aside for it and the goal of the box of goodies is to be just plain fun stuff and I will say there is some fun stuff in it already.
Have a great fourth!!
