Picture Day!

These pictures don't have a cohesive theme, so I'm lumping them all in one post instead of stringing them out into several appropriately labeled one-sentence posts. Included are pics from times past I never got around to posting.

The glow of the Christmas lights welcomes UPS delivery men to deposit packages on our porch (hmmm, unfortunate wording there).

Darwin considers the philosophical consequences of cutting limbs away from the power lines.

After I took eight million trips to Hobby Lobby for the proper size mats, the Redoute botanical prints (half of them anyway) hang triumphantly in the dining room.

The 1930s bedroom armoire is locked with a key because that's the only way it will stay closed. This key causes visitors to believe we have secret sexual items hidden away inside. I neither confirm nor deny.

Darwin cruises on the Rustmobile.

I tried to wear this replica of a 1904 swimsuit, tights, slipper and cap on Halloween, but sadly it did not fit.

The Super Scratcher gets Henry all hot and bothered.

Alistair brings gifts to all the good boys and girls. However, he hates boys and girls, so he considers them all bad and keeps the gifts for himself. :(

Are you sure Darwin is pondering the results of limb removal and he isn't trying to unlock the bedroom armoire?

I absolutely love the color of your dining room. Who made it?

Gary - naughty, naughty! ;-)

Thanks, Jenne - it's Benjamin Moore dark mustard. I posted about it here

I love how you did the Christmas lights! Did you just do one set of lights and string it back and forth? Or is it some kind of special lights? So original!
