While visiting Lavenham, England, there was a building titled "The Crooked Shop" and across the street was one even more crooked. And in York we saw quite a number of crooked houses on the shambles.
We dined at a sandwich house called "The Crooked House of Windsor" which in the past had housed barristors and it was then called "The Crooked Barristers" office. This prompted me to do a Crooked House project which went over quite well!
The figure of the Crooked Man was made by Kim Murdock of Australia as a gift to Rik and it was the perfect figure for his Crooked House!
