Where do broken hearts go? Not sure, but well loved dolls often end up at the thrift store. Their hair is wild, some have new tattoos, some are missing parts, some have non factory applied make up, but most are still smiling. These dolls represent a well lived life, and as we all know a well lived life will leave you with some new tattoos, interesting hair styles and a big wide smile. Enjoy.

About

Be the Absurd.

I'm a weirdo. I'm a Pisces. And I spent a lot of years being creatively stifled. I started my shop "BetheAbsurd" because I wanted to recreate crayons. I had another shop called "DollsofHecate" which was thriving but listing crayons in that shop wasn't a good business move. Crayons seemed like a great idea, get candy molds, melt crayons, make some great new shapes. However crayons break and they melt...so I decided to make refrigerator magnets out of beanie babies.

Thrift stores are inundated with Beanies. So sad. All those homeless beanies. So I decided to buy bags of them super cheap and use both the butts and heads and make magnets. It was fun and kept me out of trouble.

Then came the records. I LOVE records. I decided I was going to make record cover album journals. And then when I had piles of records and no covers I made coasters. People LOVED the coasters so much so I couldn't keep up with the orders and eventually ran out of cheap albums to buy.

My latest adventure is working with a Master Photographer creating and taking pictures of well loved dolls. Whose heart doesn't light up when you see a beautiful discarded smiling thrift store doll with half it's arm torn off. We can all relate. Enjoy.

    I love weird stuff and coming up with ways to recycle stuff and make it weird. For my latest adventure I have joined forces with Master Photographer Tim Yeaglin to create some great "Been Around the Block" doll images.
