This is Myrtle, the lady who owns the flower house, a house I have been
obsessed with for years (the entire sidewalk and porch is covered with
fake flowers and it stays that way year around.) I met her by chance
today and got to see the inside of her house when I helped her carry
shopping bags, which she was lugging around in the sweltering heat. She
lives right up from downtown and walks down to the thrift stores all the
time. Her ENTIRE house is covered in fake flowers, stuffed animals,
figurines, vases, pictures, statues, etc.
It is the most awesomely interesting house I have ever seen. She is 83 and has lived there for 15 years.
Of course she has flowers in the built-in vase on her VW Bug dashboard.
I take great pleasure in feeding and clothing myself. My personal style is based on breaking free from the notion that you need a lot of money to dress the way you want. Queen City Crossing is here to serve as inspiration through the chronicling of local street style!
