but perhaps they'd be perfect for me.
And last weekend, I got a box just chock full of cool stuff.
This was Jane's guest bedroom.

They're mine now.

chug sip of wine, and the randomness ensued.
I liked the way the marbles mimicked the bubble motif of the piece.

I will most probably alter whatever it is.
