Art with Heart!



In the middle of our street
on the square, facing west,
someone's built a house
that is not like the rest.

The houses on our street
are all cozy, full of heart,
and this house is more
like a fine work of art.

A house so unusual
it looks as if someone
has built a house and garden
wrapped up all in one!

The neighbors are puzzled,
they gossip and stare -
they all want to know
about the people who live there.

I was the first
to meet her by chance -
an elegant woman with
a gallery in France.

The house and her life
are devoted to art,
but she will fit right in -
she's a neighbor with a heart!


Featured: my new doll-house is covered by 
wallpaper from Photowall. I was blown away

It almost goes without saying, I would like a house where one can see from the outside that an artist live there. Since it's a brick house in an housing association, it's not allowed. Loved this Amalia and many thanks for showing the art house with All Seasons, Jesh

Your little house is adorable; poem, too. As a mini-lover, I looked it over very carefully; I have used owl beads to create small "art sculptures for my dh people, too! Only unimaginative people use beads for just jewelry!
