Whimsical Things: Lakenenland

Artful sculpture right next door, Lakenenland!

Anywhere you go, you’ll stumble on the unusual, something unique to the area or something you’ve never seen before. Well, here it is; ladies & gents…Lakenenland! Although I’d known about Lakenenland for years, I never ventured in until now. Goes to show what you may not know is right next door.

I’d like to thank Tom Lakenen, founder and artist of all finds at the curious Lakenenland. Thank you for creating a place for others to enjoy. Thank you for creating thought-provoking artwork with a light-hearted personality. Thank you for creatively breathing life into things that once were, but now no longer serve their intended purposes.

Go out and explore. See what you can find in your neighborhood. Pay attention to the detail in things. Then see what happens. Not the exploring type? Go to a restaurant you’ve never been to before. Shop where you have never shopped. Really, do it to be adventurous.
