Hello my friends!
Thanks to all who offered suggestions for a name for my structure. Since it is not a "chateau" I thought the name should be something more suited to the kind of building it actually is. You will recall that I was given this building as a "gift" and the original owner, though not a follower, is reading the blog and watching the progress. We live in different parts of the country and this is her only way to see the progress. She
e-mailed me and had a couple of "name" suggestions..........so in honor of her gift I chose one of hers and "tweaked" it a bit..
My structure will now be known as, "La Maison des Grands Rêves", which translated means "The House of Great Dreams". For those of you who are fluent "French" speakers, I got this French phrasing from my friend in Paris. She offered a more "poetic" version which I thought great, but I decided on this simpler one. The only problem is that I cannot sort out how to put an "accent" above the first "e" in "Reves".
These are the candle cups, fluted dishes, leaf arms, and main body, mouse ear top piece
