Excerpt from "The Dreams Forgotten" that inspired this piece -

She silently shook her head and went into the foyer of the house. Whatever she had been expecting the inside of the home to look like, it hadn’t been this. Everything, from the door stop to the picture frames, appeared to be made of finely folded paper, all pristine and white. She had stepped into a Victorian doll house full of end tables and chairs of folded origami. The interior was almost as blinding white as the exterior, except this place was decorated with what looked like enormous jewelry. She felt like Alice in Wonderland, shrunk down to the size of a doll.

Shining brooches and pins, earrings and necklaces, all hung and pinned as though this house was a plaything for a glamorous giantess. The staircase before them was festooned with a shining, three stranded diamond necklace that ended with a blue jeweled flower ring hung on the end post of the stair rail. She recognized the ring from an estate sale she had gone to with her mom. On the wall were ornately folded white Origami picture frames that enclosed three brooches like artwork. The first was a blue toned peacock, the second a yellow and black jeweled bee, and the last, a shining black diamond spider. Her grandmother had been buried with that very same bee broach. Looking down at her feet, she saw an ornate diamond bracelet stretched across the floor like a rug.

She was, once again, speechless.

Ira laughed a little at her, not unkindly but rather in enjoyment, and said, “I could have warned you about this place, but I thought you would like the surprise.” He appeared pleased at her reaction.

She turned toward him, and as she moved, she heard her clothes rustling dryly. Looking down, she saw that she was no longer wearing the diaphanous gown from the jeweled cave but an elaborate dress of white paper lace, folded and gathered into a dazzling masterpiece. It was strapless, and the skirt bloomed full and dramatic around her, bursting away from the fitted, tightly folded bodice. The sheets were gathered in large, graceful loops that opened like flower petals. On her chest, a large, delicate rosette was blooming palely. She felt like a porcelain figurine in the dress.

I hope I don’t get a paper cut, she thought idly.

He laughed as though he had read her mind. “No,” he said, “nothing will hurt you here.”

Ira's clothes were like hers, elaborately folded paper. They were all white as well, but there was a glittering red flower brooch on his chest. He smiled familiarly at her and tucked her arm into his, covering her hand with his own, and escorted her into the house.

"Finery suits you, Evelyn," he said in a low whisper in her ear that sent pleasant shivers up her spine.

Opening the doors to a parlor were two of the oddest beings that Evelyn had ever seen. Their bodies were white origami, women's forms bound in elaborate gowns, brimming with papery lace and very low cut. It was hard for Evelyn to wrap her mind around the folds of paper that formed their cleavage, but that was far from the oddest features of the paper women. Their heads were made of dancing fire that did not touch their paper bodies. Gathered where their natural necks would have joined their bodies, the flames fountained up into tall licks of fire that went from white hot to vivid blue to wisping orange.

I do not ship items until I receive and verify payment. I do not have a deadline on payment, per se, but I will cancel a sale after a ridiculously long period of time from the purchase date (like three months) except in the case of original art, which I will cancel after 5 days of non-payment.
