I wonder, where do you find the inspiration when you feel like you don't want to do anything, when actually you don't want to be alone but at the same time can't tolerate any noise, when it has been raining cats and dogs outside for several weeks in a row?
As for me, I usually go through my books, magazines, etc... Last Monday, a week ago, I spent couple of hours cleaning the bookshelves and found the book "America's Great Houses" that I bought last year. This book reminded me that I have a new hobby: visiting old mansions. At this point I have seen only one mansion so far - the Campbell House in Spokane, WA. I told my Sweetheart: "Today kids go to the school and we go to Idaho".
It was a road trip that took us an hour and half to arrive to the McConnell Mansion in Moscow, ID - an eclectic mix of Eastlake, Victorian, Gothic, and Queen Anne styles, this 2-story clapboard residence was the most impressive residence in town when it was built in 1886.
Is anyone dare to reproduce it in miniature using "doll's hair" like viscose, lama fur? Interesting idea, do you agree?
