drawing challenge / another roadside attraction

There are many attractions to see on the roadside.  I combined two things I love to see, nature and interesting furniture that people have discarded.  Not old mattresses or rain drenched sofas, but the good stuff.  I am not ashamed to admit I have collected some great roadside items.  I've polished, painted, and made new someone else's trash.


Demie is our host this week.  Visit her blog for a list of other roadside attractions.

Your drawings are beautiful. We have a very active roadside collection culture where I live. People in our community are constantly putting out items that they no longer want in hopes that someone else may have a use for it. Last year we scored a single bed and a small child's desk. Last night my husband came home with 6 ceramic egg cups.

i must say i do feel for the macabre, sometimes, and i can easily get swooned away by drenched sofas as much as the good, good stuff... [but that's another story]

the thoughts you put to paper here are very alluring though, in your unmistakable and relaxed rachel way..
