“Homestead is where the art is.”

For the artists reception of the Homestead Show ‘n Tell at The Palms the ever-resourceful Ellie Greenwood cooked up a cabin cake, and in keeping with her philosophy that the best way to handle humans is treat them like they’re 2 years old she set up a table with graham crackers, various candies, and icing for mortar and let the kids and grown-ups get to building their own cabins.  The results were outstanding, creating a liliputian desert community complete with outhouses.  Where are they now?  Palms proprietess Laura Sibley says, “In a very good case of art imitating life, first the doors went and then the roof [fell] in till all that is left is the gum drop driveway.”  Tina Bluefield and Doug Storm caught some photos before the fall, on view below.
