12:53 pm - Out of comfort zone post: Home decor
I recently remembered that queerbychoice had asked me to post photos of (my) home and a description of how it got decorated in the way that it is.

Left side of living room

Right side of living room

These two are the main decorated areas of our living room. Our version of decorating largely consists of various lovely pieces of furniture given to us by my parents (who have the great virtue of being antique dealers), combined with various things each of us has acquired, or on occasion, made. For example, in the top photo, the dragon mask up near the ceiling was made by my dear friend Aaron, while the long hanging pieces is something Alice made as a college project (the subject of which was the T.S. Eliot poem The Wasteland. The lower photo starts with a mosaic that Alice made in another class that says Our Home, followed by a lovely piece of art of a gryphon that I bought from this excellent site (I use the head of this same gryphon as the gryphon (emphasis & strong feelings) icon for my lj. Below that is Alice's altar to Eris, then we have a mirror of Alice's, an Balinese bat that I feel in love with at a store, and a Japanese print on the side wall. If we can be said to have a decorating style, the best description would perhaps be bohemian haphazard.

Interesting! What are the little things sitting on top of the TV?

Those are the shaman legos. Seriously (though they may not be Legos brand). There's a little shaman with a staff, and a tree with ravens. They were a gift from a friend.

I've always said the shaman looks like a little lego Odhinn, with the ravens and all.
