Moma's Scenes

I know y'all want to see the inside of the house, but my blog postings seem to have a mind of their own...and right now, Moma is on my mind...

We drove to my cousins house today, to deliver a big purchase she made (from the trip). While there, I took pictures of a scene she had on the wall, my mother made, probably 20 years ago...and I just wanted to share a very small piece of the things my mother has created through the years...she's also made dolls from Sculpy, that are amazing. Really, most her creations are from things she found...Anyway enjoy Moma's scenes...clink on them to enlarge!


Clothes on the line, speckled "sculpy" buckets holding flowers, a rock well, mailbox with little red flag, wood and barbed wire fence, outhouse, screen door, detail after detail, flower climbing up the chimney, yellow vegetable in a wooden box... looking back in time...through Moma's eyes...



Notice the veggies in the green box, at far right and the birdhouse, upper left?


Moma sold many of these windmills, by themselves, on old barn wood. Sunflowers and barbed wire, old shingles~ put on one at time, same with each rock...


The rusted roof  barn, with a chicken coop at the end, a tiny ladder completed the country scene...


 old barn has rusty door hardware...


Here is the whole scene!

I'm going out of town again, I'll bring back more pics of the wedding reception we are doing...

and don't forget...Prior Lives Party! I would love for you to join in!

Those are absolutely amazing!! They remind me of this stone house that my great-grandpa made it fascinated me whenever I visited him as a child.

He also made key chains shaped like baskets from peach pits. I still have one.

Oh Lezlee...your Moma is a natural artist! You can tell that piece was made with so much love and patience.
Though I want to see the inside of the house, this beautiful creation makes it well worth the wait. I love this! I do hope you have one too!Vicki

Just amazing, They should be on a restaurant wall, like Famous Daves or something so many people can see them.

Wow Lezlee, that is so cool. I remember seeing a couple of mini scenes like that when I was little. I was amazed. My kids would just stare at that for hours... who needs video games?

Lezlee, I wish you a wonderful time on the road. Your Mom's scene is beautiful. They must be all of the things in life that she enjoys. I also love the charm of old and rust, animals, gardens, and a little farm. Even the laundry hanging on the fence. Tell her I enjoyed seeing her work. Blessings, sandi

I want you to know first thing that I have a passion for folk art and especially if it's made by a woman. Second thing...this is Fab U Lous! This should be hanging in the MOMA (Museum of Mother's Art). It is wonderful and how lucky are you that it's a family piece.

Your Momma is an amazing woman. Not only can she create works of art such as that but she writes for a newspaper. I am so in love with that piece. Your cousin is very fortunate to have that piece.

I'll be showcasing this on my "favorite posts of the week" post. Have a safe trip.
