CJ says it's for mineral panning or archaeological fieldwork, but some of us think it's from a lost 5-foot tall Mr. Coffee. With a mesh size of 1/20", we'd use it to pan for gold.

Doll Him Up

This plain white muslin doll is 13" tall, with 8” of skinny legs. Wires inside the stuffed arms and legs make him easily posable. Him? Well, it looks himish, but it’s naked and decidedly gender-free. It also looks like there’s an Edward Gorey character trying to get out, but that’s just our impression. A bunch of these painted in dancing costumes, or as frogs, or acrobats, on a mantel would make a mighty pretty scene, we think.
