The show is up! It took about 4 1/2 hours to put everything in the cases the way I wanted it. Charlie came to help me the last hour and half. He has a great eye for design. Above is a one of the big cases that flank the entrance to the children’s room. It is hard to see, but the birds are in there with their nest and three wooden eggs. And above them are assorted animals.
And this case is opposite that one. It is also huge. And right next to the fish tank where all children like to hang out so I put the storybook vignettes there. Roxanne, Stella and I took a last minute trip to Lowe’s yesterday to get the bricks for Humpty. One pig is on mini bales of hay, the next has a bundle of sticks and the third is sitting on more bricks. The wolf is sitting on top of our wooden United Housewrecker’s Box with the cauldron beside him.
And here I am holding the front page of today’s Wellesley Townsman once the show was totally installed. Whew! I put a few more pictures of the cases here if you are interested.
