when I was a child, I caught a fleeting glimpse

This is the second thing I have done with a cigarette box. This time I glued two together to make a townhouse. The Marlboro family prefers to stay in town for the summer where the action is, so they do their best to make their place look seasonal. They start hanging their laundry out instead of throwing it in the dryer. They let the cat out on the roof, where, the naughty thing gets up on the table, they put the woodstove to bed, and most importantly they plant their ever-popular hanging nasturtiums:

they even have a fruit tree espaliered up the side of their building.

I used a plastic piece from a business envelope to make this giant skylight. It bugs the heck out of the Marlboros in the summer because it makes the upper library and den areas absolutely cook.  One day, Mr Marlboro, who is the real sewer in the family, swears he will design giant curtains for it.

Mrs M has a good tan going from reading her morning paper on the roof with a cuppa joe.

The fire escape, thank goodness never used yet.

Just a pair of pants and a towel hanging on the line today....

Mr M has put tomatoes in a barrel out back and they are doing marvelously well, but not a single blossom. He is now ashamed to have the neighbors over.

Here is a photo commissioned by Mr M for Mrs M's Christmas present several years ago. It hangs above the fireplace.  Arial photos are costly, ya know....

Evidence.  Please don't tell Mr and Mrs M.  It might break their hearts.
Thanks for looking.

um,   yay?
