A Randomly Selected Newspaper Headline:

The following is a randomly selected newspaper headline from many years ago:

Welcome to my blog. Please feel free to leave a comment. I assure you I always read and appreciate everything you have to say. Unfortunately, thanks to Blogger being, well . . . Blogger, I can not respond to comments nor leave any on your blogs. They simply disappear into the ether. Occasionally I will remember to respond in the next blog post I put up, but usually these good intentions slip my mind. So if you want to ask a question or get a response to any comments you may have please leave an email address or other contact method in your comment and I will get back to you.

I have also added a separate page to the blog for the Tower of Magic with a brief summary of all the rooms of the ToM in the one spot. The link is just below this and above the main body of the blog, or you can just click here.

Is it a Sorceress' Chamber??

No matter what I tried, the first way I had the furniture arranged was the only way the room really worked.  If only the boxes I'm using to make the roomboxes were just an inch wider I'm sure I'd like the layout better, not to mention be able to lay it out better.

As you can see after I stopped moving furniture from pillar to post and back again I finished off a lot of the previously undone bits of the room.    The legs of the chinoserie cabinet have been painted, cushions and pillows added to the bed and bench seat along with miscellaneous trim and of course a few vases of flowers.

The other new addition this week has been a resident for the room.  Sadly, the photos I tried to take of her didn't come out (it's winter down here in Tasmania and good light is very difficult to get at the moment) so you'll have to wait 'till later to see her clearly.  She's a Heidi Ott lady doll whom I dressed in a simple off-white pleated nightgown and wigged with a copper blond viscose wigging.  She's standing by the window/door that opens onto the faux balcony and brushing her hair.

I'm not sure whether to call this room part of the Tower of Magic or not, I mean, there's nothing exactly "magic" about it is there?  I could easily be a "real" bedroom from any time from the 1700s up to today.  All in all I'm still not really sure about anything to do with this room.

  1. Hi Alennka,
    Don't be so hard on yourself, the room is just gorgeous. You have the best layout, I think, for the space available. But more importantly, what you have in the room all compliment each other, and your new occupant looks so happy to be there....and able to sleep in such opulence!
    The room is really lovely.
    All the best
