Hi.

Welcome to my blog. I'm an artist and traveler living in Wilmington, North Carolina.

From home to every groovy destination it’s all about art. Just art. -

A summer storm with crazy high winds, a bradford pear tree that lost the battle and a saw-wielding brother-in-law cutting the tree into manageable pieces left piles of branches that wanted to be a treehouse.

Moving the branches into piles for burning turned into wondering how I might tie them together to make a niece-sized playhouse.

After the first few branches were tied together without putting out an eye or puncturing a limb the rest was easy and a lot of fun. I let the branches tell me where they wanted to play. The connections were tied with wire then covered with strips of burlap.

If the fairies are to feel at home I supposed the treehouse could use some shiny bits to make it sparkle. A bag of crafty seaglass, sinkers inspired by mother's fishing tackle, copper flashing and copper plated nails from Lowes, a crystal drawer pull and a pair of keys all added to the shiny.
