The mauve room

Before penning a sweet little story called Jane Eyre, Charlotte Bronte decorated this dollhouse. The George II "baby house" is up for auction at Christie's, as part of the collection of antiques dealer Roger Warner, a favorite source for some folks like, oh, Walt Disney, the Mitford sisters, and a queen or two.

Can you even imagine a Bronte as your governess? It is like something straight out of...Bronte!

For your newbie, you are going to get rid of golfing balls and crack a great deal of the game of golf tees. It might be to your advantage to transport a minimum of 6 playing golf balls with you whenever you play a course, and a bag of 25 golf tees. You can keep them within your golfing case.
