@msolga,
Ha! Thanks. I'd stand out like a sore thumb in these parts. She has detailed patterns and tips too for the ambitious.
That house is something else, eh!
I've been going through all her sites, on facebook, esty and the one above. You see glimpses of the house in other pics. I could live in it too...

@Ceili,

Here's a link to the house and the wild paint job. I can't cut and paste and pics, but it's worth the visit.

@Ceili,
All that colour, against the stark whiteness of the snow!
I agree, her work is wonderful!

@Ceili,
I love her stuff. Some dance friends turned me on to her a couple of years ago. I am VERY tempted to order one of her coats.

@roger,
Hunh, I think of it as a very Northern European/Russian look. I'd never have thought of anything English-speaking as its source. Hunh.

Long pointy hoods are also important in the SERIOUS yoga gear world these days.

@ehBeth,
I get different vibes from them all. To me the top one is sort druidish, the second elvish - where ever that may be, but I know it's a happy place.. 3rd- gypsy and then last century russia.
I've read that it's pretty difficult to get one. She makes an announcement on facebook then it's first come first serve.

I like the coats a lot, beautiful themselves and then terrific re recycling.

Yuck on the house.

@ossobuco,
I dunno. I hate the idea that every house or home has to conform. I love houses that have character. It takes a certain mix of guts and madness to paint a house like this. I admire the inspiration and moxie.

@Ceili,
I second that. When I'm gonna make my own house to live in, it's gonna stick out in the neighborhood like a sore thumb, in a good kind of way of course.

@Ceili,
Sure hope it doesn't look like that on the inside. Anyway, it would make it easy to call for police or fire departmenst. "There's a fire at, you know, THAT HOUSE".
