7 Things Found in My Grandmother’s House

My grandma’s house is full of treasures, wonders, and oddities. A large part of my aesthetic sense came from her, which is why my friends often find bizarre what I’d call cute. Her house is a good place to write: I can glance up and see ten to twenty strange or interesting things at any moment, from any place in the house.

1. Monkey man with cymbals

His face suggests that he knows more than he lets on.

2. A rainbow-winged wooden pegasus

One of a hundred unicorns and pegasi to be found around the house.

3. A glass bowl of babies

I don’t have a comment for this one. They speak for themselves.

4. A trip of mushroom friends

They’re either witches or in a band, or both.

5. A Green Man hanging on the wall

As far as I know, no one in my family is wiccan.

6. A copy of the Tao Te Ching

Found next to a figure of a reclining laughing buddha.

Found very near the monkey man. Coincidence?
