Built in the 1700's and renovated many times. Bare windows emits morning sunlight as evening cast shadows. Electricity is non-existent. Air in old pipes spit and spat when the taps turn on. Doors and windows dont open or close properly. Trims along with cabinets get stripped, repainted and reused. Appliances work sometimes. Tenants are happy as they enjoy life!

A KITCHEN WITCH
in miniature! Have you ever seen one
of these kitchen witch's. They symbolize good luck!
Some of them
are so ugly that they are down right cute.
Widow Sarah has moved out of the apartment
building to be closer to her daughter.
(Emily was able to talk her into

my hand at painting them green.

blue eyes & a blue mouth with a blue
Here's another angle. I think

I wanted a crystal or something
to hang down from the tip of her hat.
However for now I omitted it because
I couldnt find in my small stash
anything that was suitable. Her legs are

shoes I just used a permanent magic marker.
Here is the underside of her. She is glued onto the broom. I
