“Martha has the ideal family life” so it was said about town. “She is the perfect homemaker; tidy, krafty, organized, respectable and reliable.” This was certainly the outwardly appearance, what one saw at first glance…but the cracks were beginning to show.
The ephemera: Handwritten recipes from the 1940s by my mother; vintage book cover; reproduction of dammaged vintage photo.
The found objects: old nails found while renovating my house; paper wasp nest; vintage buttons; vintage furniture tacks.
Yep, looks like the ideal family life could turn out to be a nail-biter.
(Sorry, I figured someone was bound to say it, so I’d just get down to brass tacks & get it over with) Nice gothic piece you’ve created, and here it is, right before bedtime. 😦
omg hahaha 🤣🤣🤣
I know what she’s going through!
The tales Martha could tell . Stories that we whisper into the darkness. Secrets to be shared. Tears to be wept. Dear Martha.
