This is my entry in the collaborative project "The 2011 Buried Treasure". This project, the brain child of Seth Apter over at The Altered Page will take place this year on Thursday July 28th. This annual e-vent asks participating bloggers to re-post a favorite post from their own blog.
I am re-posting “Come Play With Me”● originally posted 5/27/2010. This piece is totally interactive. Constructed in a vintage oak file box that has been altered and embellished with wooden inserts to hold things that are ROUND: A wooden top, a vintage light bulb, a tea ball, a lovely glass door knob, a compass, a doll's head, a globe, and eyeball that sits in a glass funnel. All items can be picked up and played with, as their texture tells the story of the life they had before they came here. This piece also includes a wind-up music box, and brass drawer pulls on each end. (click on any image to enlarge for a closer look.) IN PRIVATE COLLECTION
