I'm Baaack.... To miniatures, that is. This morning I, at Tessie's request, painted her bedroom.
She chose a Ceramcoat color called "Stonewedge Green". It looks suspiciously like their old "Wedgwood Green". I don't know why they changed the name, but now the "Wedgwood Green is much brighter and totally different than it used to be. Strange.
After I finished painting, Tessie wandered in. She then Zapped the black and white brass bed into place....It was there for a few minutes and then in a flash, it turned into one of my hand carved walnut beds, dressed in white silk. I ignored her for a while and the bed kept changing, one to the other and back again....I finally couldn't stand it any longer. I asked her what she was doing?
Her answer? "Decisions. Decisions! Decisions? I can't decide which one I want." Did I offer her the carved walnut one? No. Did she ask if she could have it? No....
Personally, I can understand her vexation. I can't decide which one I like better against the green walls either.
If she decides on the white one, I guess I will let her have it. It has been sitting here and there without a real home for a long time now...For that matter, so has the brass one.
Please don't tell her. She will immediately start on the "I need a bigger house!" routine.
I also started drawing up plans for the kitchen cupboards. I kept having feelings of deja vu. Then I realized why. I designed this kitchen almost 20 years ago. It is part of a large roombox with the dining, living room and kitchen.
This is almost the same dimension and layout as the kitchen in the townhouse. I guess that I could just use these patterns again, if I had kept them. I drew them up. Built the kitchen and then tossed them.
As I said...."Back to the future." Here I go again...
It's the old addage, "Everything old is new again..."
See you tomorrow.
