Mysterious Discoveries

We've just had the 2016 phone books delivered in our area, so I wasn't surprised to see discarded pages lying around.  Being a Tidy Kiwi (except in my studio), I started picking them up, and wondered... it seemed like they had been discarded in an intelligent fashion, and I was following a trail.  If I was following a trail of phone book pages, might I come across a phone booth.  And if I found a phone box, might it be, could it possibly be... a Tardis????  Might I suddenly find a way to have all the time I needed to create all the ideas my Muse was generating??????
The sun had set as I approached it, guided by it being all lit up.  Uh Oh.

 (At which point DH came out, said "what's going on with all those lights", 
then said  "Oh, an artist!!!!"  Gotta love the man :)  )  
Come back later in the month when it's daylight for a guided tour...
