What I want now...

Because there is an Australian visiting from our Mail-Art exchange, I was up a Melanie's for the weekend. Katie who is also in the mail art exchange was able to come to meet Heather, and Melanie also invited Karen -  a friend of hers who does a lot of mail art within her own circles. Heather and Karen had "met" on facebook and it was so much fun to get together with like-minded people and have a play day. Heather was introduced to a whole new world of printmaking!  We spent Saturday at Melanie's PRESS and each made a pressure print. I'll have to post those another time because I want to take photos and I'm planning on "installing" them somewhere on the premises.

Karen invited us (Heather and me) to her home on our way back to Philadelphia. And wow. Just wow. What a beautiful home!
It makes mine with all of my colors look conservative!
It is so beautiful!
I want one.
Look...

The cabin in the woods

The breakfast nook
The Mona Lisa Bath
   
The light switch cover in the Mona Lisa bath
The green bath... (huge sigh - is this a bathroom for me or what!?)

But since I can't really have a house like this (not right now anyway), I'll settle for the light socket covers... Look at these!

(I'm sorry the images are a little blurry. I don't know what was blooming up there but I was having the worst allergy attack I've every had. I took antihistamines and everything, did no good.)


Karen explained that the light switch covers are covered with decorative paper, stamps, maps etc.  Well. I think I have some of that stuff lying around! I can't wait!

Heather and I did some running around yesterday... the running tour of Philadelphia. Got her safely onto the train this morning and I dashed off to my peer review at Moore, which I think went okay. 
And now I've blogged - so I think I can indulge in a little art. I'm going to go cover some light switches!

Wow what a great blog post, it was so like that. Karen's house full of colour and art. So glad we took that little detour.
