Neckties Galore!

Most of you know I have some kind of obsession with neckties.

I was cruising and came across some necktie images that are not related to sewing.
But they're still fun.

Cynner says, "...all I really know is that it's a truck, covered in men's neckties, and it was parked near Barbie Death Camp at last year's Burning Man festival in the Nevada desert. and I took a picture of it."

There are also assorted photos of dogs and cats wearing neckties--here's one handsome fellow.

I would love to see this sculpture in Frankfurt, Germany, by artists Claes Oldenburg and Coosje van Bruggen,
entitled Inverted collar and tie (1994).

I guess this one does involve sewing. My bad.
I can see it in paint though too. Cute whichever technique is used.

I live in Frankfurt and saw the tie sculpture often. Strangely my hb didn't recognize is as an inverted tie, even though he lives here all his life and has seen it a lot more than I did.
