Ice Palace

If I lived in an igloo, I would furnish my ice cave with faux furs and fluffy toys. I would make paper cut-outs of pretty doilies, and I would use them as plates when friends came to visit. I would chisel big windows from each side of the igloo so I could see into the lovely woods ... and also know when wolves were around.
