This morning at Walmart, of all places, I found more filigree. In the potpourri dept. they had sandalwood fans. I would have never thought to look there. I am now sure to have enough to finish the Russian cottage.
I got it home and Tessie immediately wanted to tear into it with Zar's rusty saw. After taking that away from her, I very gently opened the box. It is nice heavy plastic.....Windows, if I need them.
Tessie announced, "We will be working on the cottage this morning. Won't we?" I do believe that is the "royal we". You know. It's the one where we means Tessie is going to watch me work.
I gessoed the inside walls and ceiling. Tessie showed up to pose with the paintbrush after I had finished. Notice the clean paintbrush....
Then I started putting some boards around the second story opening.....She spent the time saddling the roof and watching over the edge.
Help? What help? I am certainly glad that I don't have to depend on her to get things done.
She wandered off after that and went back to the Mid-century Mod party. Yup. It's still going strong. At least it keeps her out of my hair some of the time.
I have to go back to work now, sans assistance. Don't forget to go make a comment on yesterday's blog for the drawing, if you haven't already done so.
See you tomorrow.
