Since I didn't hear any objections to the heavily-edited expedition through our house, we will continue with said tour. Today, we will look at the family room- also known as the "rumpus room" or "the room with the TV in it that has toys, games & crap all over the place".
Okay, the lower left photo isn't actually in our family room. It's actually in the guest bathroom downstairs. However, it is directly adjacent to the family room, so it kinda counts. The image is an old German woodcut of Red Riding Hood. I admit, I am a sucker for old German woodcuts. They are inherently weird and creepy- not that there's anything WRONG with that....
The photo on the right is a custom made broom that we paid too much for at a Renniassance faire a few years back. Still, it's a pretty darned cool broom. Not very practical for the sweepin', however.
We've got a ridiculous number of cloches and apothecary jars with stuff in them. Here are a few of them that are on our bookshelf in the family room. Note the spooky waterglobe!
|Things in jars are spooky. Unless it's jelly or something.|
Here's a little doll that my husband paid our daughter 2 dollars for. He modified her into what you see now- we call her Sushi Sioux, and we keep her in a bowl. We are thinking of including her as a helper on our website.
|Look at me! I'm in a bowl and I'm spooky! Fear my raw seafood! FEAR IT!|
These are our pet frogs. One of them is named Stretchy- I forget the name of the other one. It's some kind of Japanese name like Gonnagitchamichi.
|I'm 40 grams of fury- don't mess wit' me, homes.|
