funkytown is back
funkytown is back! actually, it never quite went away. a few die-hards kept a skeletal presence in funkytown through the winter, but now that the first blooms are in sight, the little village is growing quickly again. for those of you new to artsyville, funkytown was started by someone in our neighborhood last year by tossing a few toys in their side yard, and over the summer it evolved into a fun trading environment. people bring arts, crafts, junky kid toys - weird random stuff lives in harmony here. my favorite things today were the flower that someone fashioned out of an egg carton - so clever - and the beautiful headbands that arrived in the mail for my girls from a sweet art friend. my least favorite thing today: just look at birdiegirl's NAUGHTY purple fingers. she found a bottle of liquid watercolor this afternoon.
