From plaster bust to little pink house.

    Made for a charity auction to raise money for women suffering from breast cancer.

    My inspiration for this project was a favorite poem by Shel Silverstein

    A Light in the Attic

    There’s a light on in the attic
    Though the house is dark and shuttered,
    I can see a flickerin’ flutter,
    And I know what it’s about.
    There’s a light on in the attic.
    I can see it from the outside,
    And I know you’re on the inside . . . lookin’ out.
