fish is all you need

Big square collage postcard for Mandy. Glass paperweight heart clipped from the Artful Home catalog. Fish are all scanned from John M. Carrera's Pictorial Webster's: A Visual Dictionary of Curiosities (highly recommended: I got it from Chronicle Books).


As for the clipping, the Weekly World News reported:


Bashful bachelor gal Andrea Lyons longed to say "I do" and settle down, but every guy she took a liking to left her high and dry--so dingbat Andrea married a man-eating shark.


As 40 flabbergasted guests looked on, the elated lady tied the knot with her pet shark Archie in a seaside ceremony at her home in Sydney, Australia.


"Everyone says Archie is dangerous and that some day he's going to eat me alive, but compared to the guys I've met lately, he's an absolute angel," the blushing bride gushed to reporters.


"He's gentle and he kisses nice and he doesn't leave his dirty underwear lying all over my house. As far as I'm concerned he's a helluva catch."


...and so on. =laugh= The caption for the photo reads "Happy bride Andrea Lyons gives her new hubby a big wet kiss."


Oh, and by the way, I had the fish neatly lined up so you could read "LOVE is all you need" on each of the four sides, but you know fish...they will swim to the beat of their own the time I put the card down on the scanner, they were all mixed up. =shrug=
