model home

This adorable five inch wide sculpture by artist photographer Mike Goede captures a cozy little alpine or maritime life of simplicity.  I'd love to add some pants to the washline and some windows to the home.

What a dazzling shape these wee tiny snails have, out for a stroll at low tide this morning.
