house of a thousand still lifes
I spent the first part of this week up at my parent's house. My mom has the house decorated to a T, despite the fact she really isn't a "holiday person." In addition to the Christmas decorations, my parents' home is packed full of collections...thimbles, old cars, old toys, bakelite, buttons, vintage kitchenware, childrens books, knives, anvils, coins, old porcelain signs, blue willow dishes, cast iron pans ...you name it, they have it. There are SO MANY things to draw...I can't even begin to explain. I hope I can take time to document it all soon. I think it could make for a really nice series. But for now, here's a glimpse at all the stockings hung by the chimney (with care).
