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.

My Flickr Top Ten - No. 5

My fifth most view photo is this image of the Mummy Unwrapping party in the dining room of the Victorian House.

Mummy unwrappings were popular in Victorian times, but despite the prevelance of Victorian era dollshouses, I don't recall ever seeing another mummy unwrapping in miniature, which perhaps has helped this photo to be so popular.

When I started to work on this room, it was going to be an ordinary dining room with a bit of a chinoserie theme, the idea of the mummy party was something of an after thought. Hence the party was probably an after dinner event in the evening, yet the window at the back shows blue skies and daylight outside.

The mummy's sarcophogus is made from air drying clay. Unfortunately, the face on the sarcophogus turned out with a perpetully worried expression.
