Four is a sacred number in many cultures and religions including the Zia tribe of New Mexico, The Four cups of wine drunk during Jewish Passover, The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, The Four Noble Truths of Buddhism. We have many examples in biology and nature. The four chambers of the human heart, a four leaf clover, hmm, it's wonderful to meditate on this.
four is also, according to some numerologists, my "soul number" or "year" number. my birthday does add up to four. i have four children, im one of four. fours, especially in combination of 3 and 1's, have always figured prominently in my life.
and so, in the spirit of Four, here's the fourth photo from my fourth folder:
this is a picture of my dollhouse before i started refurbishing it this summer. i figured if my real house was a mess, i could at least make some headway in the dollhouse. the story behind this dollhouse is that i originally purchased it for my sister sheila when i was in college. i bought it with change i saved from the sears catalogue. it arrived in a box and a thousand pieces, and i can't imagine my stepfather had too many nice things to say about my idea because he is the one who put the freaking thing together. my sister played with it, and then it was passed to my girls, who slowely brought it to the state you see above.
and in the interests of showing you what magic a little paint and glue and love can do... here's what it looks like now:
and here's who i tag -
1 - kristin
2 - selchie
3 - boxofficegirl
4 - njdecorator*
