The Wreck Stops Here


The old shop is having a sale and the new shop has some items listed, with more to come this weekend. This week has been a bit of a car wreck, I'm glad it's over! Weekends hold new meaning for me now- not ever having a proper 9 to 5 job over the years has meant that Saturdays and Sundays were just another day. Now however the two day free-zone means I get a break from that small panicked voice in my head that says 'oh god, should I be going to the post office!?' :D

I've discovered Tumblr recently- it's magic! The only thing that annoys me is that many of the blogs don't have image credits, so I can't explore further or give credit when i re-post here.



If anyone knows where any of these originally came from, please oblige.

Oh, these photos are lovely. Really lovely. I especially love the way the last one makes m feel, the mood of it. Thanks for sharing these with us =)

It tickled me to see the last photo and know exactly where to go on my bookshelf and dig back into my personal history. It is from the book Handmade Houses: A Guide to the Woodbutcher's Art, by Art Boericke with photos by Barry Shapiro, published in 1973.
It is not specified in the book just where the various houses are, as they preferred to allow them to be anonymously "somewhere in the woods".
This book kicked off a whole series of picture books of alternative artist-built houses in the 70's.
If you'd like any more info, feel free to convo me on Etsy.
