2008-12-24 [Xuan.]: some of these seem more like accessories. in this case can I add things like lamps and such to mine?

2008-12-25 [Hedda]: I wanted to put the furnitures into an environment. So I think adding some related things to them makes sense.

This page is no way near finished though. I have to comment the stuff, but I'm busy yuling <img:stuff/zabuN-gif.gif>

2009-01-03 [Sir. Robert]: I love the black rocking chair! It reminds me of one we used to have. :)

2009-02-23 [organicparadox]: such random and lively colour palettes. very warm and inviting atmosphere:)

2009-03-17 [Artsieladie]: Very nice photos, [Hedda]. Nicely festive, too. :) The rocking chair with non-moving feet is like what I have, but is classified as a "Boston Rocker" here. In...

...the 'decoarative stuff' looks like copper. But maybe it's just the lighting. :P

2009-03-17 [Hedda]: Copper is way too soft to make things like that of. Brass is a copper alloy tough and can contain mostly copper. They didn't come with an alloy recipe though...

2009-03-17 [Artsieladie]: Now see that. You learn something new everyday! Decorative stuff is often just 'copper coated', because it's maintenance (cleaning) involves less effort and the appearance is thought to be more attractive by many. Alloy recipe? haha :)

Oh, but the copper water piping in my house seems to hold up quite well for both boiling hot and ice cold water. I wonder what its 'alloy recipe' is, because you have to be able to solder it when joining pieces of the piping. Hmm...

2009-03-17 [Hedda]: It can't be pure copper because you can bend a copper plate with your hands. On Copper it's "copper utensils" but I really doubt it's pure copper. Copper alloys are much harder even with just 5% zinc. I'm not an export though: Ask someone else.

2009-03-18 [organicparadox]: what the hell happened in here?! i felt as if this thread was overcome by the ghosts of scientists...... you guys are too smart for me. go on jeopardy and make us millions!

2009-03-18 [Artsieladie]: hehe [Hedda] would be great on Jeopardy, but not I. ;)
