Tiny room in a 20x20cm wooden box.

I filled it with vintage things I’ve collected, put in wallpaper and a carpet and made the bedding and the tiny bear.

The Signs as Cry Baby Lyrics

Aries - Don’t be dramatic, it’s only some plastic. No one will love you if you’re unattractive // Mrs. Potato Head

Taurus - I feel like I’m just missing something whenever you leave // Cake

Gemini - A little bit of sugar, but lots of poison, too // Milk & Cookies

Cancer - You take things so hard, and then you fall apart // Cry Baby

Leo - So what if I’m crazy? The best people are // Mad Hatter

Virgo - Everyone thinks that we’re perfect; please don’t let them look through the curtains // Dollhouse

Libra - Someone told me stay away from things that aren’t yours, but was he yours if he wanted me so bad? // Pacify Her

Scorpio - I wanna make you mine, but that’s hard to say. Is this coming off in a cheesy way? // Training Wheels

Sagittarius - I’m sick of all the games I have to play // Soap

Capricorn - You were comforting and quiet; how did love become so violent? // Teddy Bear

Aquarius - If they say to kill yourself, then you will try it. All the makeup in the world, won’t make you less insecure // Sippy Cup

Pisces - Chasing after you is like a fairytale, but I feel like I’m glued on tight to this carousel // Carousel

I’m nuts, baby, I’m mad,
The craziest friend that you’ve ever had
You think I’m psycho, you think I’m gone
Tell the psychiatrist something is wrong
Over the bend, entirely bonkers
You like me best when I’m off my rocker
Tell you a secret, I’m not alarmed
So what if I’m crazy? The best people are

Some new eyes

You’ve all seen me post before about replacing patients’ eyes.  The eyes come out because of washer incidents, or pet attacks and I put new safety eyes in, or reinstall the originals if possible.  This red panda was here this week for eye and nose reinstall:

And here he is ready to go home yesterday:

20/20 vision and perfect smell! 

Some patients, however, have different types of eyes that can’t just be replaced or reinstalled.  This winter I had a couple patients whose plastic googly eyes were replaced with cloth eyes so they would not only have 20/20 vision, but would be safer for babies.  First was Cookie Monster. His person’s spouse wrote:

I am looking to get my husbands Cookie Monster toy repaired. Right now it has hard plastic eyes, and one of them is broken. (I have attached photos) I was wondering if it is possible to have the plastic eyes removed completely and be replaced with plush eyes. This was his favorite childhood toy and I’d like it to be repaired for our future child. Please let me know if this is possible and the price.

This is actually a fairly common email except for the eyes.  Many people send animals to the hospital to be spruced up for the next generation.  We agreed Cookie Monster would have a spa and new eyes.  Here he is on arrival in January:

Of course, he started with a bubble bath:

New stuffing is a must for patients going to the next generation, but he kept a bit of his original stuffing in a heart:

Then it was on to all new soft eyes:

His family wrote:

He looks great! Love the eyes! Thank you  again so much for your work, I can’t wait to surprise my husband with him :)

p.s. his original eyes went back home with him.  His family wanted them for sentimental reasons. :-)

Now Cookie Monster’s cloth eyes weren’t the only ones this winter.  I also had a visit from a turtle who’d lost an eye.  His original was flat, and felt, so that’s what his new eye is too.  He is over 50 years old and wanted to be presentable not to a new child, but to a new grandchild!  So, he also had a spa.  Here’s his arrival photo:

And here he is clean, able to hold his head up, and with 20/20 vision again:

His person wrote:

It is here - thank you, love it so much!!
