If you remember, a few days ago I wrote about Victorian Follies ... well, I just came across this exquisite example of a follie being used as a shelter for a public water fountain! Isn't it just beautiful - and so fanciful and wondrous. The man is restoring the gold leaf (which is why the top looks so much more golden than the rest of it). I haven't been able to find a photo of the finished folly - but be sure to click on the photo, so that it will grow and you can examine the details. I am particularly fond of the plaster details over each entrance arc.

These are some of the work I complete this week. As always, you can get a closer look by clicking on the photo for a larger image.

"It's beauty that captures the attention"

"Do you believe in fairies? Say quick that you believe. If you believe clap your hands"
"The way to avoid housework is to live outside"

As I was searching out photos of Fanny Ward (below), the original Tinkerbelle on stage in J.M.Barrie's Peter Pan, I found this lovely photo of her. It's not hard to see why the producers thought she would make a believable beautiful and ethereal fantasy creature!
I'm certainly glad that they didn't cast this Tinkerbelle instead, aren't you?! But, I have to give her (him?!) a certain amount of admiration for making the most out of $1.37 worth of material and Reynolds Wrap!

...what kind of coffee are you serving?!
Well, we're off to return Blockbuster movies and choose a few more...I'm hoping "Taken" and "Valkyrie" are in stock. I want to see them both. Then I think that I need to clean up the studio so it's nice and fresh for me to start a new mess tomorrow!

Go make something beautiful!
