i’m jealous of heather benning

Um, can you say every little girl’s dream?! Yes, it’s a real-life dollhouse. I really, really, really want to live in this amazing on-site installation by Canadian artist Heather Benning. Granted, that huge plexiglass wall might leave me a little exposed to the local farmers and the odd cow, but that’s a sacrifice I’m willing to make for art! Below are images of the transformation… from an old abandoned farmhouse in Manitoba, into, well, my new home:

Sigh… amazing. And, it even comes with a rainbow! Throw in a unicorn grazing on the grass and you’re lookin’ at my childhood dream!

    I love this little house, have to stop by and see it every time I drive past to visit a friend. Its so cute out in the middle of no where just off the highway!

    wow! you get to drive by it?! i would love to see this in person… what a cool piece of art to have in your town!

    Its probably an hour away, but definitely worth the drive. Heather Benning’s art is amazing around rural Manitoba/Saskatchewan.

    Night, so gorgeous. One another actual bare, no one knows, nor was there any one to see. Any a corner inside the Affordable Bags can use its alone – darkness to embrace me.
