Parallel Worlds — There's plenty of room at the top

I would never super glue anything to my ceiling! I drilled holes in everything & mounted them permanently, with screws, all proper-like. They're my stalactites. Or stalagmites, depending...

Yes, I can haz weird!

Flautist...you'll lay in the corner of your room staring at a vase you've super glued up there, but your 'suspicious' of cod liver oil?? Hmmmmm....fascinating.

Clifyt...things at cat eye level.....love it. genius.

Hmm, if I could only figure out how to turn peculiarities into strengths...
I like this a whole lot, partly because I love miniatures, period. I've been sticking stuff up on my ceiling for a long time, except not tiny things. Regular sized things - vases, little lamps, various doo-dads. Nothing will reset and recharge the old brains like getting a new perspective on your everyday environment, and if you lay out flat on the floor in some corner you don't often lay out flat in, and look at everything around you from upside down, you see brand-new shapes and angles and shadows...the world is new again! Really, it's amazing how it works.

I had a mini art gallery for my cats at one point. All positioned about 6 inches off the ground...

My friends through I was insane...

Joe you so often have great stuff. You have at it boy.

I love surprise.

I want to round the corner and see something unexpected. Scale models are some of my favorites for this. In my house if you head out of the living room and happen to look down there's a wonderful "date scene" out of the 40's. Red sling back pumps, slightly akimbo, next to a pair of wing tips. All on a 4x6 oriental rug-that's 4" x 6".

I love the split second burst of imagination which envisions the people who just shook them off.

These wonderful tableaux from Ji Lee add a second dose of the unexpected-on the ceiling. GREAT!
