chicken coop













Loving J. Morgan Puett's interior installation “Chicken Coop” - it looks straight out of a children's storybook, don't you think?

Puett, a once fashion designer, now focuses her artistic practice on large-scale projects that mine her interest in the role fashion and garments play on culture - both historical and contemporary - in an effort to honor the “missing links to history.”

See more of Puett's work here. I think my favorite is the refrigerator, under food.

Yes. Yes it does. And for a second I thought it was in your backyard, and I was about to be insanely jealous!

Your blog is beautiful! I love the chicken coop. The little girl in me is dreaming of having this as a playhouse. I would have tea parties and plant a wee cottage garden and "tidying up" would be fun, rather than a chore. Happy sigh...

Thanks for following my blog!
