TAKE A WORD


WATCHERS

We have WINGS as our word for inspiration at TAKE A WORD this week and that reminded me of a little shadow box I have and that sometimes, if the light is right and I am very quick,  I can see a fairy child sitting inside.  Oftentimes, in the same half light, I imagine she is not the only face staring out at me.

Thank you for looking.

As the others have said - WOW. The reversal of what should be small being large and what should be large being small makes it fascinating. And the face in the keyhole - perfect.

What a strange fairy box, you're a real poetress and a very talented lady Ann!
I adore your shadow box and you imagination :)

Usually your surreal thing is kind of modern and colorful and I like it! Not surprisingly this vintage surreal is delightful and refreshing.

So intriguing! Your shadow box invites us into one of the special worlds you create. In this one, things appear bigger than they might appear in a rearview mirror (ha!) Very clever, Ann, and a joy to look at! xx
