This peep box "home" has been staged!

Here is a photo of my latest peepbox.


I made this new peepbox early this morning from a tea box, junk mail, a stapler, tape and plastic bags. Oh yeah - an Abba Zabba wrapper was involved as well! I washed and dried the wrapper before using for my flooring and curtains.


Oh look, the Witchita Lineman is outside today! 


Look! There is even a frozen lake for us to ice skate today! All photos taken of the same box, different cameras and angles were used. 

Thanks for visiting!

Nice job Barbara, very talented, and an art that I was not aware of until now.

First picture was pretty clear but would love to see some more where I can see the work better.

William - I have as much trying to take a photos of finished peep boxes as I do making them.

Bob -  I love the art form, I'm not sure if a peep box museum exists, but I would like to visit one someday!

Kat - I posted this box because it was so fun to make, did not take too much time. Don't throw away your teaboxes until you have tried making one!

Joe  - was best I could do with bad lighting. Managed to get one good photo out of the bunch before the day became devoted to real estate. You have inspired me to re-shoot and update the blog post. I am glad you want to see more.

Thanks for visiting, hope everybody has a fun filled Wednesday.

Very interesting art form.  I haven't seen this kind of thing before, other than something similar with commercial buildings.

Myrl, I have always loved scale models of buildings, maybe that was my inspiration when I started making these. Look at some of my past blogs and you will see more boxes from my collection. Thanks for stopping by!

Hi Barbara -- I loved drawing floor plans of homes when I was a kid -- yeah, I know -- weird, huh?    I wished I had heard of the peep box concept back then...very creative.
