ART + NATURE = HARMONY
ART + NATURE = HARMONY
See the garden and Jayebird Studio, as well as the “catico” built for Hedy Lamar, rescued from Lamar Ave. Enjoy the glassed-in back porch with vintage colored glass. The back yard is becoming a New Orleans-style courtyard. See the bright red bottle tree with vintage soda bottles and black iron fountain from my parents’ antique store in Arkansas. Also featured is the chicken coop and an arbor that pops against a spirit blue fence along with multiple container gardens throughout the yard. There are found objects everywhere!
