I am really referring to the house, but I couldn't resist showing you the books that I got in the mail yesterday afternoon.
April and Seth gave me an Amazon Gift Card for Christmas. I waited until now to spend it. These are what I got.
The first is a bead embroidery book by Sherry Sarfini. Wonderful beaded jewelry. The third is on gourd baskets. Lots of ideas for mini baskets as well as large.
I saved the best until last..."Walls". Only I would be crazy enough to buy a book called that with only the cover showing.... I have to say that I am glad I did. It has all kinds of fantastic color photos of walls from back in cave painting days to the present. It is chock full of ideas for minis....Now all I have to do is get it away from Tessie.
Would you like to see what she wants from the photos in here? Here you go. I have three words for her...."Dream on, Tessie!"
Anyway, back to the townhouse. I put the frames around the windows inside and decided to leave off the valences that I made a while ago.
You wouldn't be able to see anything in there, even with lighting, if I put them in. It is reallllllly dark.
I wanted to see what would show of the counters and such. Just as I suspected. Not a lot shows. I will have to make the table very inviting. I may have to make the table white or put a white tablecloth on it. You can hardly see the table at all. Not good.
I have a very bad attitude about this house now. I just want it over and done. It just isn't something that I would like to live in and I have a sneaking suspicion that Tessie feels the same. It has lost all of it's charm for me. Terrible attitude. Bad!
Now I am sitting here dreaming of doing something else, but feeling guilty because I haven't finished this one yet....I know I will never be tempted to go back to it if I quit now, so I am going to grit my teeth and finish it....Very soon! Sorry for the rant!
I am going to get ready and go to Wednesday Witches Mini Meeting. That is my excuse for not working on it today.
See you tomorrow.
