The small stone lantern is one of several on the Broken Elms grounds. Madam Bledsoe remembers they are here from time to time. When she does, she lights them, occasionally with disastrous consequences. This one was surrounded by dry fall leaves when she lit it. The flames reached one of the out buildings before Ruby was able to put them out. The nearby bamboo was still green and that helped prevent the fire spreading to the manor home.
Keeping Original Felt Fine Art Clean – Contrary to popular belief, wool art is easy to maintain. It can last hundreds, if not thousands of years if it is consistently treated well. Mounting your wool art on a wall in indirect sunlight will deter pests, which require dark areas with little to no air flow to reproduce. Dust is easily dislodged by patting the work from behind or firmly tapping the frame while holding the work face down. Dust can also be removed with canned air if desired.
