Les Vacances de M.Leon
Monsieur Leon cycles around the campsite.
It’s part of the summer, just like the heat, the mosquitoes, and the afternoon siesta.
Monsieur Leon also has the habit of whistling contentedly. Indeed, he is so good at it
that the larks prefer to listen to him, and the roosters refuse to
greet the break of day because they cannot compete
with Monsieur Leon’s dawn whistling. He starts on a low note, like a timid violin
seeping in with the first sunbeams among the tents and the caravans,
among the pine branches and the dew that the night drops before retiring…
Bit by bit, Monsieur Leon’s whistling warms up and changes colour,
enhanced by new notes of the voices of children just awakened from slumber.
So begin the long happy summer days at the campsite,
and so they go on, with no clocks to mark the hours passing by.
When night falls once more, and Monsieur Leon thinks
that everybody has gone to bed,
he takes out his ukulele and there, on the steps of his caravan,
plays songs that he learned from his grandmother, songs that are
as old as this old world of ours. Or even older.
And then all around him, in time with his beat,
the crickets crick and the owls owl, and together they play
Digging the Etsy shop Timo Handmade. Made in Israel, the dolls are super cool, with geometric shapes, spiky hair punks, extended families and long-beaked birds. Spied them in Small Magazine (smallmagazine.net). Check 'em out at Timo Handmade

I am not a big doll person--That is I wasn't until I was introduced to avant-doll maker Andrew Yang and his collection of fabulous "rag dolls" called Kouklitas. These custom, couture dolls (a riff on koukla, the Greek word for doll), run $800 and upwards, but are divinely weird and wonderful. I stumbled upon these on Hunger Pipi Langeweile, but they are being made right here in New York CIty.Here are a few of my faves. . .
