Welcome to GlassSpider's Parlour
The lovely and illustrious LeanMan made the fabulous suggestion that we should each have our own, personal forums where we could carry on conversation without having to hop across forum threads – a salon of sorts! I thought this was such a wonderful ideal that I’ve built a beautiful parlour to entertain you in!
Come into my parlour, said the Spider. Here, in the main room, you can see there are plenty of chairs, sofas, and soft pillows in warm, earthy colors. Feel free to lounge, be comfortable, start a fire if you’re so inclined, and enjoy the sweet, intoxicating scent of Nag Champa incense that burns here continuously.
Straight ahead, you’ll find my kitchen – it’s a cosy little nook, but I keep a well-stocked larder. There’s everything you might want to munch on here, from the world’s finest cheeses to fresh herbs, fruits, and vegetables; the finest meats; and everything in between. Whip up something wonderful to chew on here.
On your right, you’ll find my green room. Made entirely of glass windows, this is the place to come and soak in the sun. While it’s filled with a wide array of aromatic and lovely flowers such as jasmine and roses, the stars of this room are my gorgeous and rare orchids.
This is also where I grow all my fresh herbs: peppermint, basil, dill, oregano, rosemary, thyme, and others. Make sure to breathe deeply and enjoy the compelling blend of botanical aromas.
Don't miss my succulent and cactus collection and on the far wall; I love all my beautiful plants, but these are some of my favorites - hens and chicks, aloe, snake plants, and mother-in-law's-tongue. You'll love all my green babies, I'm sure!
Finally, on your left, you’ll find my massage parlour. There’s a shelf with a variety of the best essential oils including myrrh, lavender, lilac, vanilla and many more, all one hundred percent pharmaceutical grade and perfect for aromatherapy when blended with my special mix of jojoba, sweet almond, and emu carrier oils. We’ve always got stones warming for a hot stone massage, and the state-of-the-art massage table is always ready for someone who needs to unwind. Relax, and let your mind wander.
If you're in need of relaxation, but a little squeamish about the massage chair, soak your feet in my soothing foot bath. Make your own blend of oils to relax your feet, or add epsom salts to soak your cares away!
Welcome to my dream home! Feel free to share this virtual space with me. Ask questions, leave comments, tell me about what you’re thinking, doing, reading, seeing…just hang out. And remember, I don’t bite…unless you ask!
Mi Casa es su Casa! I'm looking forward to great conversations, edifying entertainment, and tons of fun with fabulous friends!
