I almost forgot, I started doing floors with the calendar last night. They are turning out pretty good, but I only have enough for part of the floors. Some of the other ones are going to have to be tile or something else. I can do brick floors on the bottom rooms.
I decided that the bottom floor and the foundation was going to be brick or stone.....I opted for brick since I had a bag of terracotta DAS. This particular sack has to be almost 20 years old...Unopened. I bought it to try and never got around to it. It still works.
Here is a photo of the left side of the building. The DAS is drying. After it does, I will put some washes on it. * I am going to have to do something to the side of the roof line. I want to cover up the layered look of the old roof That part will be easy enough. It's the end that has to be disguised.
Hold on. I just heard a teeny tiny voice...."Wait! I want to be in the picture! You need me to show scale."
It was Tessie. Or should I say "Miss Mini Me Tessie"?
She showed scale by diminishing herself to 1 1/4" tall. I could barely hear her voice. Hey! That's a good thing!
I humored her and took the photo and about, no exactly, 3 seconds later she exploded to her normal size.
She sat down on the table gasping for breath. I asked her what was wrong and she answered, "Tiny lungs! Big mistake! Can't breath!!!" Then she gasped a couple more times and put her head between her knees.
"Remind me not to use that spell again! It was ghastly! Thank goodness I didn't faint. I probably would have had to stay like that for days!
I am happy to report that she is back to her "normal" self and none the worse for wear.
She has been keeping a close eye on what I am typing from the top of the computer to make sure that I get it right.
She made me promise to hide the bottle that the potion was in, to be sure that she didn't accidentally use it again....I don't think that she stopped to think just whom she was having hold it....
Hmmmm. There is the possibility of putting her in an Altoids box and having peace and quiet any time I want it.
Rats! She just grabbed it and poured it down the drain. So much for peace and quiet. When will I learn that she is adept at reading the screen upside down? Oh well.....
See you tomorrow.
