    These children are members of Iraq’s Yazidi minority, who are one of many minorities deemed expendable by ISIS militants. In the last few days, ISIS has moved into their villages and taken their homes. Tens of thousands of the villagers fled into a nearby range of mountains. Realizing this, ISIS circled the mountains with guns, blocked all the roads, and waited for them to die of thirst in the 120 degree heat. These children belonged to some of the families lucky enough to escape. While their parents were panicking about their relatives trapped in the mountains, these kids found a quiet place to play. I found them banging on some cans. I asked them what they were doing. “We’re building a car,” they said. 
    "Isn’t that cute," I thought. "They’re imagining the cans are cars."

    When I came back 5 minutes later, they had punctured holes in all four cans. Using two metal wires as axles, they turned the cans into wheels, and attached them to the plastic crate lying nearby. They’d built a car. (Dohuk, Iraq)

    The violins clear their wooden throats
    Murmuring incantations
    Soft and low for us

  5. This December I intend to greet strangers by merrily exclaiming “Season’s Greetings!” before flinging handfuls of salt, pepper and cinnamon in their faces.

    I didn’t get a before picture of this gray Gap sweater, but I’m sure that you all can imagine this sweater minus the flowers.  I seem to have a thing for embroidering plain gray sweaters (I think this is the fourth one I’ve done), and it’s not something I consciously think about, it just seems to happen.  Maybe someday I’ll post pictures of the others I’ve done.  Thrifted and embroidered sweater: $2.50.

    Just a quick note.  I recently started another tumblr for all the things I make/wear.  So far it’s been clothes that I’ve made/refashioned, but I’m planning on adding other types of things in the future (art, etc.).  If you like clothes/refashions you can check it out (but hey, no pressure).  Awkward self-promotion out.

     Chromatic Typewriter Prints

    Tyree Callahan has recycled (or upcycled, perhaps) a classic 1937 Underwood typewriter by replacing letters with sponges soaked across the spectrum with bright yellows, reds, blues and combinations thereof.
