Corners of My Home
A close-up of the dots that make up the image was requested, so here you go.
The wall at the foot of the bed is entirely glass and overlooks the tree tops.
And this is my dresser on which I keep (left to right): a small print entitled, "Sleeping Lovers" by Josephine McCormick; a photo of my dearly departed cat, Sid; my pregnant torso casted by Robert a week before I delivered (yes, I know my boobs were huge); mini drawers for my jewelry...my prized whistle ring from childhood; a bunch o' Pee Wee Harmonicas (on which I can play the theme to Masterpiece Theater ); and sandalwood Tibetan prayer beads (that smell heavenly); an antique Whitman's candy tin designed by Alphonse Mucha; a tiny 50's bowl; and an antique French lozenge tin.
Robert's dresser once belonged to his grandmother. On top he keeps (left to right): the Dali box that I made him; 3 wood boxes made by his father; the best fan I've ever owned; and a thick layer of dust. (He hates when I move things to clean so I don't clean his stuff...except for his cds because those dusty jewel cases were not going in the same drawer with mine until they were wiped down).
So there you have it...our home is a mish-mash of his, hers and ours...but somehow it seems to work. We're renting this flat until we decide where to plant roots.
After I finished the "nest" on Saturday during mama-time, I made this sun jar and I plan to make more once I figure out an easier way to reassemble the jar. I had to enlist my husband because my hands just weren't strong enough. The light is a gorgeous amber as you can see in the photo. And what I love about it is that the sun charges the rechargeable battery within. How cool is that? (Thanks, Megan!)
And for the Wee...I made a bunch of homemade playdough!
My next project is a letterbox to be placed in a local used bookstore. It's going to look like a mysterious old book, but it will be hollow to contain the goods. I talked the owner of the shop into letting me plant it. More on this later...Satch and I are taking the metro to the zoo! But before I go, I think you should read two very poignant posts, "Undamaged Boys" and "Masks" by the amazing Shelley (she inspires me daily).
