Visitors from England

The fireplace made it into the end wall a little while back.  The grate will get wood and firelight.  Am really looking forward to putting the wall in and working on the stairs, I like stairs.  I picked a new name for the house .... but can't remember it now.  I did write it down.... but there's this messy thing happening on my desk and the paper is hiding.  The stone powder on the fire surround worked in the end with a lot of applications and sanding to give the look of rough-dressed stone, enough to give the impression of it anyway :)  The little guys with all the personality sitting on the mantle are Skele Bottles and Pumpkin Pot made by Nikki Rowe of Witch and Wizard Miniatures.  I couldn't resist, I just love their character and facial expressions and the detailing is great.  Nikki is a fantastic polymer clay talent.

Ahah!  Rebekah (eldest child) remembered the name - Drostan Park.  Thank you Rebekah for having a better memory than me.
