Above and Beyond....

I'm talking about six loads of wash....And getting on a stepladder to take photos of what's behind the stuff that you saw yesterday.

Actually, the first photo is of the "attic" plant shelf in the bedroom. There's a hatbox that was, at one time, a finished hat shop inside. It needs renovating.

Next to it is an intriguing box that my father in law found somewhere. It has two separate lids, split down the middle. In front of that is an old jewel box. All three have possibilities.


Now for some of the stuff behind the front layer of the plant shelf in the workroom. It is so nice to have a place to put a step ladder so that I can get up there to see it all. I am keeping the floor all uncluttered!

Tessie had to get into the act. Behind her is the Sundance Saloon movie set. That is April's. She asked me for it soon after I made it, but she doesn't have room for it right now. Unfortunately, it is going to have to be completely re done. The window that you see that is broken is on purpose. One of the actors just slugged a guy for cheating at cards and he went right through the window.

Tessie is standing on one of the unused boxes and behind her is another pile of boxes that will be used in the future....I am getting tired just counting them...Maybe some of the tired is from doing laundry and cleaning house. I started cleaning kitchen cupboards. It is Monday again....I vote that we eliminate Mondays. All in favor, say "I".

Meanwhile, Tessie is still harassing me about the unfinished aprons. That's all I got done in mini today....I finished the one that she has on. One down. Three to go....

Tuesday will be better. No laundry. Just three more aprons. I am eyeing the 1/4" castle. I went on line searching for Tudor scullery photos. I found some wonderful ones of Hampton Court kitchens and sculleries by putting in "Tudor scullery" and pushing images.

If any of you are interested in this period, these photo collections are outstanding. http://www.flickr.com/photos/sarge_schultz/1672279511/ and http://travel.webshots.com/photo/1052249601031312462OoTffd Very interesting detail photos in the second group.

I am off to finish the laundry now.

See you tomorrow.

Aye! :)

I once did eight loads of laundry on a Monday, never again! I was too whipped the following day to do anything. :(

You have so many treasures there, will all of the empties eventually have mini scenes in them?

Dale, that's why I said that I am going to live to be 400+ years old. That's how long it is going to take me to fill all of those container, not to mention the kits under the bed....LOL

The little guys head in the first picture (is he Egyption?) has eyes that remind me of creatures from Land Of The Lost!

Audra that guy is Nefretiti. She is wearing a pair of my grandmother's glasses. LOL

That is funny! Now I can see the glasses! I figured you didn't have an alien head - but you just never know some times!
