Lilicoptere by Joana Vasconcelos

View all 14 Photos

Joana Vasconcelos has imagined up the most entertaining exhibit called Lilicoptere just outside of Paris at the world famous palace Chateau de Versailles.
Her majesty approaches the helicopter. Ostrich feathers in shades of pretty pink cover the cockpit, trail across the rotator blades. We imagine the affect of wind on the fancy ride, blowing the special decorations uncontrollably.  All over rhinestones made of Swarovski crystals sparkle wildly in the sunlight. The interior is upholstered just as refined appearing more like an antique settee than bucket seats. Controls placed in walnut wood, the leather seats dyed rose, carpets made of Arraiolos rugs. Careful landing!  Those skids are made of gold. More than a just quick ride from her NY penthouse apartment to her mansion in the Hamptons, it’s all about accessorizing. Don’t you realize how many people will see me from up in the sky?!

Allison Parker is a proud stay at home mom maintaining a full schedule kissing boo boos and passing out hugs just because. Her days many times are spent between the garden and the kitchen. From a journey of learning whole food eating habits, she's taken on the challenges of baking bread, muffins and cakes from scratch and filling the cellar shelves with scores of her own canned goods each year. Writing is one of those things she does because its part of who she is. That and it's a nice break from the never ending work that comes with raising a family.
