dream a little dream of me....

Actually, that would probably be more of a nightmare lol
Life is still a bit hectic and my mind is using dreamstate to survive, so this month
Challenge #42 from Quoth the Raven "Dream on" is pretty much on the nose for me.
Mr Poe's Dead Bride looked like she was getting a bit stiff sat up in a chair, so Hortense ordered a day bed for the poor young thing. Now she can dream of her beloved Poe in comfort :D

This was a fun project, made from recycled boxes and card tubes...
 a little re-modelling for "style"...
 bound with words of romance and adventure...
 shrouded in the black of night (or pall of dead, take your pick)
 delicately strewn with flowers....
 grown over with the greenest moss....
 trimmed with elegant black lace.
 Perfect for a young lady to dream away her days...or death...take your pick :D

Hope to be catching up with everyone soon 
Enjoy :D XXX
