A rundown house
The tinkling of light bounces off glass spikes piled upon the floor onto the staircase where more crystal-like puzzle pieces cause hazard for bare toes. Broken boards encase the remnants of memories that crowd corners in the form of ripped photographs, worn-out toys, and quilted blankets. The European style hinged entrance releases a rasping screech into the filthy air when pushed by the pristine winds.
This is ok Michaela, but, bearing in mind what I said about overloading with adjectives above, you might like to reconsider some of the language. Don't try to sound too poetic, keep it simple and concise BUT keep it fresh and full of detail.
For instance in your first sentence "crystal-like puzzle pieces" is way to convoluted. The sentence might have been stronger as:
"Light tinkles off a cascade of glass on the oak staircase, and bare toes hazard a second chandelier heaped in ruins on the stained marble of the hall."
But really it's not a bad effort at all.
Insects inhabit the deep knots that engrave the table's ancient wood. The once strong face, the top of the table, splinters into miniscule bits. Missing a leg, its once flawless posture creases into a ledge that sends all clothes avalanching into the dining-room floor.
Again not bad at all. You would however do well to try and actually find an old table and just study it closely, making detailed notes. Colour, smell, size, shape, height, texture, material of construction, drawers, steady or unsteady etc.
A particular potted plant
A weak stalk appears from a circular mound of earth that is held in a thin, floral print shell. Plain leaves frown from the flimsy structure. The frown is discolored with dehydration. Petals lacking care fall from the fragile stem.
Much the same comments as the table. This is a hard exercise and, like an artist would probably produce the best picture by studying an actual plant, so would you I suspect. But from your imagination this is ok.
I think we are nearly ready to go back to your experiences in the tree. More tomorrow.
