Behold, The House of Nonsense, which graced the shores of the resort town of Blackpool, England, back in 1911. "Here joy reigns supreme" and "Forget dull care all ye who enter here."
I am currently looking at houses. Big, small, traditional, modern. And while I ponder them, I keep coming around to the same question: “What is my dream home? What do I want in a house?” I found that I like lots of windows, or better yet: glass walls. An overall modern design, wooden floors, a sit-in kitchen with a huge fridge. The house need not be big. I am happy as long as there's enough room for a shelf to fit my books, a fireplace, room for a comfy couch and a huge desk for my computer and all the other tools and gadgets I need for work. A small garden, make that a very small garden. I have a brown thumb. Oh, and yes: a pool would be nice. For the dogs and kids to swim in.
What’s your dream home? Maybe you’ll find it in this week’s features.
Enjoy and have a fun-filled Memorial Day weekend everyone!
Hold on, to me as we go
As we roll down this unfamiliar road
And although this wave is stringing us along
Just know you’re not alone
Cause I’m going to make this place your home

I like to transform personal experience, dreams related to human condition in to three- dimensional object jewelry. I question the inevitable fate of human being by exploiting symbolism. Through the everyday journey of transforming questions into…Continue
