I did like them, although "The Yellow Wallpaper" one was way too genteel for the room described in the story. Also, the wallpaper was not nearly horrible enough.

But I harp too much; these are pretty darned great.

The Past Times series is especially nice.

Also, the wallpaper was not nearly horrible enough.

And insufficiently smooched!

It kind of blows my mind that she's made dioramas - the thing that was the fount of a thousand school projects - as an art form. (If I'd known that was possible I could have gone in a whole other direction.)

I too have a terrible urge to nitpick the yellow wallpaper, but I shall shut up because these are GREAT.
