I know I have yammered on about Lula magazine in the past, but one article blew my mind and I had to make a pilgrimage to see its subject matter. Canadian artist Heather Benning took an abandoned farmhouse in Manitoba (the article says Saskatchewan but that is incorrect - it's near Sinclair, MB) and turned it into a life size dollhouse in 2007. Fair warning to Nosey Nancy's (like myself) who decide to make the journey.... the road is all grain elevators and NOTHINGNESS for miles. It was still pretty unbelievable to pull up next to.
my lovely dollhouse shots
Lamb chop's at the door! Semi surreal photo - the sky in the reflection of the plexi glass
The seriously pervy van that carted all my belongings cross country.
and just because the title of this entry happens to coincide with an AMAZING movie from 1995.... here is the trailer.

p.s. who is dying to get a lamb chop puppet now?
