Art Car Stuff for Kelly Israel

If you love art cars, you’re familiar with Kelly Israel’s cool cars that hang out in front of the bar on Decatur Street in New Orleans. I’ve posted about him before:  I send him packages of stuff—old jewelry, coins, watches, beads—whenever I come across something I think he might be able to use. I got a note from him today, and he’s working on his house, which will be totally mosaic-covered—and cars; and it’s OK for me to post his address for donations. So if you’re doing spring cleaning and come across a box of little plastic soldiers or a bag of earrings or a ton of beads—just pretty much anything he might be able to superglue on a car—send them to:
KELLY ISRAEL
465 WESTWOOD DR.
MARRERO LA. 70072

Kelly’s a sweetie. Help him out with anything you want to donate—I’m sure actual money would help, too-- and tell him Ricë said hi!

wow, talk about a memory jog! years ago someone took me to see this crazy mosaic house here in albuquerque. and turns out it's only about 5 minutes from where i live. i've only been to see it a couple of times, and not recently. but the first time we drove by, it was truly a sight to behold. here's a link to it:
