My brother Rich is an architect. He and his partner Ed live in DC. They "get" me. They really do. I love them both dearly.
And Rich and I share a retro, kitsch sensibility you just can't buy. Sometimes you have to MAKE it. Look at what he made for his home. It's a Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer DIORAMA!!!!!
Note his attention to detail...
I would like to point out that if I had made this diorama (in between mopping up the flood, wiping Bella's nose, cleaning up poop, bakiing GFCF Italian Amaretti cookies, blah blah) the characters would be made from Marzipan.
In addition, my brother and Ed FED US last night by sending Maryland crab cakes as our Christmas gift. The crab reference was not lost on me, guys.
