Happy 4th of July everyone! Today I decided was the day that Tucker would start painting. I've wanted to do this for awhile and this morning my brain said, "today". So I got out a canvas, put on his apron and we played. Mind you, I have to help him, but i let his and my hand work together, loosely, to create something. The first part of the painting, I closed my eyes to see what we got. It either looks like a cute bunny or a cute puppy. Anyway it was a lot of fun, a bit tiring too, for both of us, but we will do more.

I've been wanting to visit this house (Luna Parc) ever since I read about it in an issue of Weird NJ many years ago (still have the issue in our bathroom). Last night very randomly, someone sent me a notice that the owner, Ricky Boscarino, was having his open house this weekend! Cleared all my plans and set out on the 2 hour drive this morning.
here is a brief description from the website Atlas Obscura:
So much beauty, art and creativity to behold. LOVE LOVE LOVE the bathroom. The clear banister upstairs housing NESTS was exquisite. Wanted to sit in the ballroom with a cool drink, some music and a book. By far, my fav was the chapel- hands down, so cool, peaceful and special. I appreciate the recycling, upcycling and Ricky's dedication to non mainstream traditional home decor. The influence from his travels is apparent and his lovely collections (Asian baby shoes- yum!). I hope to return to take a workshop
