I love this collage because of its simplicity. The clothesline is a hunk of old copper wire I found in an alley, the quilts are cut from images in a graphics magazine, and the chimney on the house is a rusty old nail. The chimney reminds me of something that you might find in "Whoville"! (Dr. Seuss) I used a flattened penny from Niagra Falls for the house decor and actual used popsicle sticks for the fence. This collage came together in one sitting (a rare event in my experience). It's just so sunny and carefree. I keep it in full view in the family room for those nights when Michigan winters have gray skies that seem to last forever.
