The Oriental Staircase

I think I got a *little* carried away with the staircase decoration! The ruby rhinestones and hand-drawn gilded swirls create an air of opulence and grandeur that is fit for a nabob! Which is giving me an idea of how the master of this manor should be ...

He is a rich (and handsome, obviously) young man: an adventurer, a lover ~ in short, someone whose mere presence makes a girl swoon! He is ever restless ~ climbing mountaintops in Nepal one moment ... and in the next, hunting man-eating lions in Africa. And yet, there is the quieter side of him, that loves to read and explore ~ did I mention he takes a keen interest in archeology?

Dearest nuttiwebgal:
Thank you for following my blog! :) I am a member of the Greenleaf forum too! I am still trying to figure out how to start up a blog there and would like to post concurrently.

Wow - the stairs are fantastic! I love them. You've given me ideas for my Beacon Hill stairs (even though I've just spent days staining & sanding them to perfection LOL)

Great work, Sumaiya.

Whippet-gal!!! I just WISH I had the patience to stain and sand my stairs. I would have done just that! Please think again about painting over it!
