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.

The story this week is all walls. Walls, walls and more walls. Fourteen rooms worth of walls.
Thirteen of those fourteen rooms are of course in the box house, which yes, absolutely needs a better name. Most of the walls have plain scrapbooking paper with a slight texture covering the walls. These plain walls are further enhanced by adding some low panelling (dado) with designs printed from internet scavenging. The double height library and the centre floor stairway are both papered with twelfth scale wallpaper with designs that don't look too oversized in 24th scale. As the vision for this house is very early Victorian I've tried to keep things light, bright and simple without too much of the 'fussiness' that comes along over the next couple of decades.
In the ToM room I've created a stone wall incorporating a fireplace along the back wall of the room. This sits beside the odd looking wooden structure I showed you last week. This now has shelves added to it, but can you guess yet what it is? Remember the Library and the mirror that created the illusion that the shelves carried on into the distance? Ever wonder where you might emerge if you wandered around those illusionary shelves? Well, you'll come to this room. The parallel shelves will have another piece of mirror behind them to create the same illusion so that it hopefully will appear that they are a continuation of the Library. The purpose of the room itself will be a sitting/reading room.
