Corners of Our Home 7

We are having lots of fun!

But I had to run over to the studio so am checking in and couldn't pass up posting another corner...

fish corner

Our "fish corner". You may have read about our fish. We had a bout of bad luck but are again feeling optimistic!

We have refilled our bowl and have two new fish with us. Aptly named "Goldee Marigold" and "Charlotte Olive" by the big bug. Many a tea party has been held around this table with the old fish. Who arrived on the big bug's second birthday and were a source of constant amusement and enchantment for her over the last 2 1/2 years. Especially for the first year or so after we got them. She would even play hide-and-seek with them. Hiding under the table and peeking out to say "Boo Fishhhh". With the little bug soon turning two we thought we better get some more.

They sit in our living room - on a Parsons table refinished by D after being saved from his parents' garage. (Yes Stephanie we are "lucky ducks"!) When not a play spot - the girls like to sit around this table and draw or eat or play "with" the fish - it is a contemplative spot. Where you can curl up on the sofa and just watch them. Quite therapeutic actually.
