Room Shots March 2012

Salix Blossoms that look like caterpillars.

So Fuzzy!!

 Antique chalkware Babes head.

Residing at the bottom of a hurricane. Poppy dishes and my Ironside's painting. It reminds me of the painting described in C.S. Lewis The Voyage of the Dawn Treader. A Gift to cousin Eustace's parents hangs in the guest room Edmund and Lucy Pevensie are staying in and is their portal to Narnia.

Tissue hearts. A couple of dabs of glue stick holds it to the glass.The adhesive wipes right off.

I the past Three issues of MSL I have had one of the items used in props. These glasses were on the January 2012 issue on the cover.

Ruby glass looks blood red against the sun drenched front room.

More tissue hearts.

In the Dining room.

Another item from a prop. The December 2011 issue had this plastic feather ice tree. In storage in the decorating room.

They have been up for about 2 weeks and still are bright. I feared the sun would bleach them...
