After showing at a couple of galleries last month, one critique I heard was that my works were too small to grab attention in a gallery setting. So now I'm trying some larger works. I've reinforced both of those things, but I'm also sitting here with them on the wall to see if they're going to fall down.
but I'm not decorating for them now am I. I love it. If you've never heard of Pick Your Plum you really should check it out. It's a daily deal site and they have deals that range from clothing and jewelry, to children's clothes and toys, to home decor and they have SUCH good deals, I order from them often.

Where is it. Windsor Castle is in Windsor in Berkshire. Windsor Castle dates from the time of William the Conqueror who built a defensive motte and bailey castle on the site around 1080. Henry I started to use it as a royal residence from around 1100, attracted by the royal hunting forest in what is... Henry II largely rebuilt the castle in stone in the 1170s. Edward III added the Norman Gate and transformed the castle into a Gothic palace. He established the Order of the Garter in 1348 and built St George’s Hall. In 1475, Edward IV started the building of St George’s Chapel and Henry VIII added the gate that carries his name in 1511. Charles II’s Baroque palace. After the Restoration, Charles II revived the castle’s splendour in the Baroque style using the skills of a master woodcarver, Grinling Gibbons, to embellish his oak-panelled rooms and the Italian artist Antonio Verrio to paint the ceilings. George III’s Gothic castle. The early Hanoverian monarchs had a preference for Hampton Court, but George III disliked it and chose to reside at Windsor Castle instead. In 1790, George III took over the management of Windsor Great Park, laying out two large farms and purchasing the lease of Frogmore House for Queen Charlotte.
