New look for Little Hokum Rag ...

Little Hokum Rag is way overdue for a face lift. This morning, I could not upload any photos to this blog from internet explorer (due to a problem that blogger is having) and then I noticed that the flickr badge was not displaying properly when using firefox. It was covering up my profile information.
So, I have decided to finally update my template and get a brand new look for this blog. Hopefully, when it is done, everything will work properly with all browsers.
Please stay tuned...I am not going anywhere....and what you are seeing now is NOT the final version.
Love, Amy

Funny Little Nudes

The Crowd Pleaser and the VIP make perfect conceptual art pieces.
Duchamp would be proud. I've always been a sucker for tiny things and these were nudes hanging around the house untouched, in the old packaging, so I took some photos. These are "the little people that add a lot".

Winter Images by Oliver Herford

Who was Oliver Herford (1863-1935)? They say he was "the American Oscar Wilde". I love these two illustrations which clearly show his sense of humor and his wicked talent for drawing and painting. He was also a poet and writer.
Here are some of his works online.

Somehow this photo says "looking ahead" to me.
It is a group of school children and a young couple soaking in the view of the Seine river (1953) from the top of Notre-Dame Cathedral.
