Brownie Bot - an Upcycled Robot

Here are a few shots of my Brownie Bot. Her head rotates and the arms are held with a magnet that allows for many positions so it allows for several posing options, the first one is my husband's favorite! Look away from the food, look away from the food!

My husband loves the hand in front of the mouth!

LKC - Laura's Kooky Creations!

So not everything I do is "kooky" but I must confess it is fun to create a variety of personalities with found objects that get assembled and given a life unknown to them previously. And it often brings a smile (and perhaps a raised eyebrow or two). It's a refreshing diversion from the massage office especially when I'm slammed as is typical for this time of year. So I'm getting closer to completion but for now here is the motley crew! So I'm still trying to decide on names. The camera character I'll call Brownie. The fondue pot...Sunny...the other two...not sure yet. Any suggestions? Brownie (which is the camera name, so not very original) but the fella behind her still needs a name... Sunny...she's simple and cheerful! And I'm not sure what name to give the Garden Girl...

They join Rosie (my firstborn), Hootie, Aladdin and Pinnochio (though P has a new home now).

Hootie the Owl

Aladdin the Thermodoor (part thermos, part doorstop!)
