It's art, Jim, but not as we know it . . .


Graham E sent me a couple of pics and corresponding links in an email he headed Cheer Up Stuff. God knows we need it.  Here are Graham’s contributions with additional pics that I have located on his items.

Thanks Graham.

Hi Mr O,

Here are a few websites to cheer you up, hopefully, hopeful, hope, Ho, Ho.

Tiny Doors ATL is an Atlanta-based art project bringing big wonder to tiny spaces in Atlanta and beyond. The 7-inch doors are sculptures created by artist Karen Anderson Singer at the invitation of the neighborhood or institution. They are designed to reflect the spirit, architecture, and other unique elements of the surrounding community.

An art project has brought the Isle of Man's fairy folklore to life by hiding miniature buildings around the island. The delicately designed fortresses and palaces have popped up in glens, beaches and on hillsides.
