"They came from a variety of backgrounds, and each had their own reasons to be leaving home to start a new life . . . The fact that they had the wherewithall at some point in the day, to write down their feelings and observations in letters and diaries, is an amazing feat, considering what could only be considered the day to day drudgery of trying to survive . . ."
The beds offer intimate pages on which to record these documents signifying in themselves; birth, death and love.

You know I love chickens and at last our two old ladies after their winter sojourn have started to lay again, Spring Yippee!
"These chicken footstools are hand crafted in Lyons, Kansas. Their structure is formed from fallen wood logs and finished with bronze cast feet and beaks. They are upholstered with several layers of hand-felted wool and alpaca fibers, so each is unique in posture and personality." they are designed by Emily, Susan and Sally of 'the city girl farm' ( Thanks)
As part of my trip to Denmark I got the opportunity to see Boy by Ron Mueck at the wonderful gallery ARoS in Aarhus. I loved watching my friends from the Leonardo project interacting with this vast sculpture. You can see some lovely images of the sculpture being constructed here.
