KAT'S VIEW

The Gibbes Museum of Art was nice. They had a room of mini-houses. I liked this room the most. It was so cool. You could see back yards, painted china, and music, real music. There was a picture of a house that was controlled by old vines and well plants. No one has taken care of that house in a long time.
