Sir Thomas's Folly Tale 89

However, he was saved for a minute or two because his wife was enchanted with the cherub.

However, he was saved for a minute or two because his wife was enchanted with the cherub.
"How sweet he is"she murmured, "Where did you find him?" "In a market in Paris, my dear, many years ago, and he has been away in store ever since" "Now, I find him charming as I do the heads, the children's heads. " Here she considered to her inward horror that it might be a subtle hint that Thomas desired more children, and this was something that she would never consider, after poor Minnie.... she thrust the dark thoughts to the back of her mind and considered the other objects.

Marianne has a good eye - he is very sweet and his little wings are fab.

I had a few of these heads, collected over the years. Some are too big for use here, but I bought 4 more last week with the definite idea of creating this folly using them. The folly was ready and painted from some weeks back - annoyingly slighter narrower in depth than the Temple of Love so less space to display in.

But what else do you do with a collection of heads? I have some tiny shells - somewhere, so that will be a possible addition.

You could put the heads in an old-fashioned toy shop, or a dolls' hospital. But I think they work well here, especially in connection with Thomas and Marianne.

The cherub is indeed delightful.
The whole thing reminds me a little of a very OTT 17th or 18th century grotto; maybe it just needs some liberally applied shells or some mosaic to be perfect?

That's just what I was about to say - the shells and grotto bit with the odd glittery stone. Wonderful period grotto collection here - tho the kids' heads are , well kind of creeepy ...

I love the cherub. Not sure about harlequin, though.

Subtle isn't a word I would choose, Marianne!
