I would bring this one home



Like a forgotten sculpture it sits in the middle of a field... even tho I know little about fixing old cars, this one would be worth giving it a shot before someone decides to take it apart, or simply just preserve what is left of it...if I could I would bring it home, she is a beauty.








The conflicting part about this, I know I found a treasure, but also know it will be gone soon, so part of me wants someone to save it but the whole of me wants this to stay the way it is, don't mess with it...how about make a park around it! Yeah...that is a great idea, plant an urban forest here. Did you read The Faithful Gardener by Clarissa Pinkola Estes ?

Not so pretty...Altered Dolls

There are many names for this kind of art;  ~ Altered  & Mixed Media Art
~ Collages & Assemblage~ Found Object Art ... Recycled Art ... Junk Art


 These used to be decorative little dolls, dressed up with ruffles and hats, yes, they had arms and legs and curly hair, I found them at the .99 cents store







I made these little dolls inspired by the technique used by Patricia Anders a gifted artist with tremendous  imagination, if you want to be enchanted, check out her site, she has magnificent works of art http://www.patriciaanders.com/ ) using porcelain dolls altered with gesso and acrylics.

Gray Gardens



THE EVOLUTION OF GRAY GARDENS
MAPPING GRAY GARDENS
THE FAN SITE


They were artists and in their mind they were still living in beauty!




This story has been on my mind for nearly 20 years, so many articles and documentaries...I almost got obsessed with those two people, living their days their way...it is intriguing and full of romance with life.
Gray Gardens
The New York theater wrote, here are still secrets left to tell about Little Edie Beale, including her diary. Her sense of fashion...gives one lots of room for behaviour/creativity.

...and while this isn't the most revolutionary costume, I think it's the best costume for the day.

Little Edie would not conform...about her gardens.

I am looking forward to watching the movie about this house and their eccentric owners.

At the old station


Traveling down an old road I found serenity had made its nest right at the place where we would rather not look these days...I found it very poetic...and the price a miracle...75 cents!














Abandoned

Still Proud and Beautiful




Somehow, this house reminds me of Gray Gardens



A friend of mine has placed an offer on this house...so I can't disclose its location.
It is a lovely place, but the kitchen is very small, hardly any room to move around. The house was built in 1911 and has a lovely small attic room with a closet. The strangest thing in this place, it has 3 fire places, back to back and one of them, a kind of reading room, so tiny...you would roast while reading a book.
This house needs some serious remodeling, with enough vision not to destroy its original beauty.
