faith eliott and her collection of used tea bags

my friend the puppet-maker, artist and singer faith eliott makes lovely creatures out of used tea bags. we are saving ours for her. these are the kind of things she makes. (although she would say, "ericka i'm BEYOND that now" i still love her old creatures.)

"And indeed there will be time
For the yellow smoke that slides along the street,
Rubbing its back upon the window-panes;
There will be time, there will be time
To prepare a face to meet the faces that you meet;
There will be time to murder and create,
And time for all the works and days of hands
That lift and drop a question on your plate;
Time for you and time for me,
And time yet for a hundred indecisions,
And for a hundred visions and revisions,
Before the taking of a toast and tea."

The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock, T.S. Eliot
