Here's the back of the house. Tessie stuck with me throughout the process. She claimed that she was "cleaning up after me". That consisted of filling her lap with shavings from the roof and when there got to be too many for her to hold, she dumped them on the floor....It didn't make any difference which floor. Some landed inside the teashop......Most landed in the family room rug. It's a good thing that I have a new vacuum! Bless the ball!
Here's the front. For a small shop, it took a lot of tiles and a lot of carving. It took several hours and the best part(the sharp, shiny,new part) of 11 Exacto blades! Those egg cartons are made for dulling blades. I have to find my whet stone. It went walkabout more than six months ago and it is still walking somewhere. It probably got put away in a safe place when I was on a cleaning spree.
Anyway, about three o' clock, Tessie announced "I am done for the day and I need a bug beer." She flounced away, dusting off all of the debris as she went. She left a nice egg carton trail.
She decided that a nice relaxing spin on a dragon would be better than sitting on the porch. She has even trained him to hold his head level as he flies so that she will have a place to rest her beer as she flies. I love her witchy ingenuity.
I guess I will go back to the real world now. I need to fix dinner.
Tomorrow will be soon enough to paint and stain.
See you then.
