Huzzah to those who have sought out

and/or  ...are still seeking...

 

The Wee Peeple Doll Shoppe 

 at

 

 ...where we are wee!

 

 

 

Shoppe #145

 

Take your first Hard Left coming through the Front Gate..

Stay on the Sidewalk - do not Deviate!

The Wee Peeple Doll Shoppe is just at the end

On the left, before the Odeon Stage, and the bend.

 

 

 

 a Wee Man at the front desk

is mesmerized by the people who come into the Doll Shoppe...

 

 

hmmm... perhaps it is not so strange that

Fairytale Princesses, Deranged Witches, Wild Cats of Nature, Spell Casters,

and Dolls who experiment regularly with Fairy Magic, for example,

will often find Human friends who seem to understand them...

 

 

Compatibility between Humans and Dolls extends as well to doing battle with:

a Confederacy of Accessories!

the "but I only have one head" Hat Dilemma...

uh-oh... which hat is it going to be...?

 

Verily, it may come as no surprise (to close friends and family members) that

indeed, Dolls and Humans have the same basic conflicts..

 For example: This Santa fellow is in a quandary- he's got three hats right now

and he can't make up his mind which one to wear....

His new friend, John Shelby- often finds himself similarly bedeviled...

 the archetypal Hat Dilemma... It's like... omg- they ALL look good...

 

                  

 

 

 

 

 

 

Wally came back!

You know how some humans just have a knack for noticing things... like Fairy Doorways...

 The Boy who Knocked on the Fairy Door!

(forevermore)

In local Folklore... therefore

 the Boy who Knocked on the Fairy Door

returned as before, kneeled on the floor,

and Knocked Once More on the Fairy Door...

 

 

 

 


 

The New Fish Folk swam through the Shoppe Space and around the Dolls...

 

...throughout all of Oktoberfest Weekend...

 

Fairy Weekend...

Pirate Weekend...

 ...and Beyond the Beyond...

 

 

The Ward.

A found object Construction.

 

 

          

 

 Ye who stand mightily upright

 beneath this sign

 shall heretofore be known as

 "Wee"

 

 

 

                                          

 

 Well! Several Kings wee know,  as well as- Time Bandits,  some little green Weed-men...

Around here, most Wee Dudes of Dubious yet Distracting Distinction

DO meet this height qualification...

 

 

 

no...

the new Santa guys are not really dumb.

They are just pretending to be dumb!

Oh, those silly pretending-to-be-dumb Santas! haha

 

 

Remember that Dolls who do experiment with Fairy Magic will sometimes begin to grow flowers from their heads.

It happens. Actually, often.

Birdhouses worn in amongst the aforementioned flowering sprouts add a touch of elegance, besides enabling the wearer to catch and release fallen fledglings

incidentally demonstrating how both

Logic and Fashion Sense

 imbue Fairy Magic

 

 

 

                                

So, with the Hexes and Vortexes lined up

and the portents favorable for 'Just getting through this"...

October is typically All About the faire...

so...

To recap- 

First there was "Beer Weekend",

then "Cocktails-with-Umbrellas Weekend",

followed by "Rum Weekend" and

finally "Smoking Punch Weekend"

Four down and Four to go...

and things can get stranger still, folks...

for example:

 "Roman Orgy Weekend" (aka... "Men-in-Sheets")

is coming up...

 

and then it will be "Half-naked Barbarians in Blankets Weekend"

followed by "Men-in-Kilts Weekend"

(as the weather gets colder this just gets more and more interesting)

and the grand finale-

 "Black Friday Weekend" (aka Celtic Christmas Weekend)

which cleverly smashes Thanksgiving and Christmas so close together one couldn't get

a turkey eyelash between them.

(Astute Insiders know it's as if a canon went off... "Christmas Shopping starts NOW Weekend")

 (though they may drop dead doing it, nobody is actually arguing with being forced to make more money...)

(In fact, "making more money" turned out to be "such a good idea" that TRF is going to NINE weekends Next Year!)

 

ah, so...

 

 

 

On and On and On with the SHOW!

 

 

 

 

 

 to refresh the memory... once again...

 The Renaissance... What was it about again, really?

 

     

Was it really about Jousting?

 

 

During the Renaissance, Baldassare Castiglione

wrote "The Book of the Courtier"

 ...a guide on how to become a Renaissance Man.

 

 

{also known as "Universal Man" or  "Man of the World"}

"...should have a detached, cool, nonchalant attitude,

and speak well, sing, recite poetry, have proper bearing, be athletic,

know the humanities and classics, paint and draw and possess many other skills,

 always without showy or boastful behavior,

in short, with "sprezzatura". [nonchalance]

 

SPREZZATURA!


 

Examples of "a Renaissance Man" would be:

(1404–1472)

 Painter, poet, medalist, philosopher,

hydraulic engineer, cryptographer, musician,

architect, and writer-novelist

Isaac Newton (1643–1727)

Physicist, mathematician,

astronomer, theologian,

natural philosopher,

and alchemist.

Galileo Galilei (15641642)

Scientist, mathematician, 

astronomer, physicist,

philosopher and flautist.

Leonardo da Vinci (1452–1519) 

 Painter, sculptor, engineer, astronomer, anatomist, biologist, geologist, physicist, architect, philosopher, inventor, humanist.

Z'Ahn (early 21st century)

Expert at Photogenic,

Collector of Peculiarities,

Naturalist, Decorator,

Accessories Consultant,

Eccentric

 

 (List of More Renaissance Men)

What?   

Not one "Renaissance Man" was distinguished for his

Jousting abilities!?

Surely they Joust!
