    Just look at the different textures in both the plant materials and fabrics, they pull you in with such artistry that I am in awe. I could just sit and stare at everything for hours...then I would take a nap!

    How do you keep critters like opossums and skunks out?

    Besides keeping critters out, how do you keep bugs out? Does it have roll down netting or something? Otherwise it looks really comfy - I would LOVE to take a nap there.
