For a while now, I've had a bit of a mini-obsession with obtaining a bubble glass frame. I had a very specific purpose in mind for it. The space under the arching trees above my bed seemed to call out for something special, and I imagined a portal that made you feel like you could fall into a tunnel of trees straight to Faerieland.
Well, thanks once again to Dresden Junk-Shun, I got my bubble glass frame. I searched the internet for a photo of an acceptably fantastical tree tunnel, and then I found out that a) none of them seemed quite right and b) because the frame is 13x17" instead of 11x17", I'd have to pay an extra $10 or so for a single color paper copy of an image to go inside.
So I decided to make one myself! After all..the rest of the trees in the room are mine, these might as well be too...
I'm quite pleased with how the set-up with the trees on the wall and the trees in the drawing pull you in. Now I'm having another debate. Originally I had planned to have the tree portal be a central frame in a series of frames hanging among the branches. Now, I'm not so sure...I'm afraid having other images on this wall might lessen the impact. Thoughts?
Tom is going to have a heart attack when he reads this too, but I'm starting to wonder if perhaps it's not time for a new bed set/comforter. I've had this one, in jewel-tone velvet patchwork, for going on 10 years now. What do you think...does it still work, and am I just questioning it because familiarity breeds contempt? (I actually hate that saying) Or would another design work better with the room?
