If you're interested in taking a spirited tour of the Windy City, my Edward Gorey-inspired map is for you! The sites I've shown here are among the most active according to ghost hunters and paranormal investigators. Even if you don't believe in such otherworldly phenomenon, perhaps my map will lure you into discovering something new about Chicago's spellbinding history.
My hand drawn memory map of a great day spent walking the historical cobblestones of Salem, Ma. It was a fun-filled day, with tons of walking, exploring, and just taking in the sights! The “witch” history was definitely explored, I loved the history, and the Peabody Essex museum was a highlight! a room full of “figureheads” in all their glory in front of huge domed alcoves...beautiful! I just loved the city, and the best lobster roll ever at the Lobster Shanty! I even threw in the Devils Run, because I hope to run it someday. A beautiful, historical, whimsical city core, I would definitely visit again.
The weather was perfect for me, hot & humid, with a salty breeze to cool you off, I hope my map captures the fun & historical atmosphere of this wonderful city!
Map of places that I have visited or lived and the awesome chocolate, candy and brownies that I would recommend. My all time favorite will always be Lore's Chocolate in Philadelphia. They are family owned and make their own candy. I always buy my Easter candy there and the peanut butter eggs are to die for. However, those Fat Witch brownies are amazing, too!
This map is a combination of mixed media and collage.
Enjoy and Happy Valentine's Day!
This map was inspired not only by the movie, but I had stumbled on information that Susan's house was not a fictional place, but a real house here on Long Island. My husband and I took a ride and there it was, the only difference was there was an addition upstairs. I didn't put the addition in my sketch. I actually forgot it because it is in the middle of the roof, so my drawing of the house is mix of 1946 and 2017. It was awesome, all of those years seeing that scene in the movie and when we drove down the street, it was like going back in time. I couldn't nail down the Walkers apartment nor the Brooks Retirement home, so those are guesses on the map based on location information gleaned from watching the movie several times. Those are the two locations marked as "fictional."
Season's Greetings and Happy New Year!
"The New-England Boy's Song about Thanksgiving Day" was written by Lydia Maria Child in 1844 for a collection called "Flowers for Children, Volume 2." We know this poem by the popular name "Over the River and through the Woods." Music was written to go along with the poem and it is a common holiday song heard during Thanksgiving and the holiday season. The words were changed to say that the children were going to Grandmother's house when in fact it is Grandfather's house in the poem. Either way, it is a warm way to welcome the holiday season.
