The All-Seeing Eye of Emporia


See the tippy-top?


Today, Justin and I finished building the scaffolding

Well, via the wonder of scaffolding, the tippy-top is now accessible…



…allowing me an intimate relationship with the all-seeing Eye of Emporia. The Eye sees EVERYTHING! It knows ALL! There is no hiding from THE EYE!!!!!!!!

    I’m anxious to see how the new/original paint scheme changes the eye color!?

    You are a busy man!!!

    Yes, Carla! No more red eye on Emporia.

    If you don’t install a tiny camera in the center of that eye, then I’ll want to know why.

    Ross, it looks like a ceiling medallion- is it? Was it custom made for the Cross house or was it a catalog item? Is it wood or is it made of terne metal? This is a first for me, seeing such a medallion on a Queen Ann house.

      The Cross House exterior abounds with stamped metal designs.

      I assumed the metal was by WF Norman, but I contacted them and they said the work was not by them. So, a mystery!
