Bob Kose and Joan Browne Kose love living in a country setting but close to all the amenities. Their Monclova home sits majestically on ten acres, surrounded by a variety of trees. Inside is an artistic masterpiece with a variety of beautiful paintings and unique sculptured pieces.. Many are done by artists with developmental disabilities, through programs done at Unruly Arts.
Renovations opened up the back of the house to enjoy the outdoors. Joan and a neighbor shared a wooded area that they decided would be perfect for a fairy trail., featuringminiature settings, so lifelike you might think that you have discovered a fairy town.
Outdoor elements and finds from garage sales and nurseries adorn the trail. As Joan tells it – this was a labor of love and so much fun to work on.

Everyone’s home is unique and expresses our personality. Joan and Bob love expressive art and fairies who have invaded their woods.
