The bag of the bag has the Declaration of Independence decoupaged on it along with some quotes from the gentlemen responsible. The sides of the bag are covered in similar quotes.
I decided Ben could stay where he was. It grew on me after a while. I did move the "United We Stand" sculpture next to him. It looked fitting.

The kitty on the quilt and the dog came out of my stash. They had no particular destination and I thought they looked the best.
