The Door to the Baggaraggs

Here is the Door to the Baggaraggs. I thought you might like to see it. Many friends have entered here, and dwell peacefully in its confines. It sits leaning against the Brother Threader Pusher. It has a vintage Button for a doorknob, and several old spools for hinges that have been attached to it with wool thread (in magenta...i so love that word MAGENTA) It has been made of Muslin, stuffed with fiberfill, painted, sewn upon and collaged with paper, and finished in Modge Podge. I frankly couldn't think of another thing to do to it. It has a painted cross made from a schefellera stick. It may soon be for sale on my Etsy site or in my Christmas shop called the Small Asylum. I haven't decided...who ever buys it will gain entrance to the Baggaraggs...

This looks very exciting. I'm wondering, though, if old Ernie is waiting on the other side!?
I can't help the thought that he is lurking somewhere...

Robin,

Love the door!! I think I am getting into your stories way too much, though!! The other night I dreamed I was leafing through a magazine... on the top, left corner of one of the pages was an advertisement. It was a really great illustration and it said...." coupon for 20% off Land of Baggaraggs" train fare!!LOL Hugs, Amy

I am homesick for the Baggaraggs. When is the Threader coming to visit the Nerd Daughter in California? Why don't you sneak out your window ans leave a body double? You could sew one!

ps: the land of the Bag needs a Locksmith. Unfortunately he's terribly arthritic and squints. Good thing then, that he has his daughters to heat and pour and shape the metal into keys. The ones that really take work are for the doors that don't exist yet. You should see their slightly crooked fingers. You and I would find them Lovely.
