Top Coat

My mom and dad are building a straw bale house. Not to live in; it is a guest house. It is taking far, far longer and much more money than either of them anticipated or imagined (in the third year now) but that's a story for another time. I have been helping a little here and there when we visit Tennessee. I know I have posted little bits about those times when I helped to sculpt the trees trunks and, more recently, the leaves. This evening I got an email from my mom with a few pics attached. One photo showed the wall with the white top coat. It is so beautiful and magical I have to share it with you. An image like this makes me think all the hard work and sacrifice are well worth the end result!

Oh that is utterly lovely! I love the "dryad" tree towards the right. I keep meaning to get more pictures from you so I can share them with my dad. :)
