Tuesday

All week I've been carrying around paper eyes with me. I put tape on the back of the eyes and stuck them onto random things I passed by.
It immediately gives inanimate objects a personality!

This handsome house has a mustache.


It's cute to look at an object and to see it looking back at me!

What a great idea! I can't decide which photo I like best, but I think it might be the one with the garbage can. The eyes are placed in such a cute way.

People are going to steal this idea...and by people, I mean me :-)

Fedora.Pirate said...

Crazy cats (sorry Moo, I mean crazy in a good way, of course), handsome houses with mustaches, baby brothers hanging from plants.. you always make me smile, Katie! Thank you!

Wayne said...

I want me some paper eyeballs!!

Kathryn said...

I love this idea. I wish I would have stumbled upon one. It would have made my day to see.

Marigail said...

That is one sassy sycamore tree. I'm enriched by your whimsey. You see possibilities.

Carolina John said...

That is so creative! very cool.

Dionne said...

These are so cute! What a fun idea!

artcy said...

lovely :D

Dawn said...

Great idea. Of course I am now trying to think of something I can do. Something just as great but that will somehow look original, as though I wasn't stealing from you directly (which of course I am)

phacohen said...

I think you´re really creative :)

you blog is amazing

lex said...

my gosh you are so adorable. i feel like if anyone else did half the things you did, they would annoy me to death, but you pull it off, girl!

Sarah said...

CUTE CUTE CUTE!!!!

My favs are the tree and the parking meter. The eyes give everything so much life. And I feel like the parking meter would say "I won't tell the meter maid you're running just a little late!"

Great idea...

Brandi Mae said...

I absolutely adore these pictures... I'll have to take my daughter on a hunt to make silly faces out of ordinary objects!

domesticinnyc said...

If someone did this in NYC and I had come across the eyes on the subway, it would have brightened a very bad morning!! Too cute!

These are wonderful! Thank you for sharing this very whimsical project! It's a good thing you did these after the Bush/Cheney regime had left office -- they would have seen this as an axcellent way to dial up their surveillance appartchik!

I loved this idea so much, so I made my own paper eyes. I plan on putting them on objects and taking pictures.

I just came across this post today, and I freaked out a little because I also have been sticking paper googly eyes on inanimate objects, and I even did it the same month as you! lol

I posted a free printable sheet of happy faces that you can download at my website:

Katie, thanks for the ideas! Here is my version: http://butterfires.blogspot.com/2009/08/making-face.html

Hey I am a huge fan of googly eyes and made an IPhone app called Googly You. You can add googly eye's to any picture. Thought maybe you would like to check it out http://bit.ly/8cYcKw and have fun!
