She went and got Spike and Zar for protection. She was afraid that I was going to lock her back in here...
I am a firm believer in displaying things that aren't really a set piece. What good is a sofa or a table hidden away in a drawer or box somewhere?
The case was empty. It was wallpapered and carpeted, so all I had to do was dig up a few things to display.
The sofa is one that I made for Tessie's townhouse....That she refused to use.
The rug is one of the very early ones that I did. It's on #18 canvas. That proves that it is OLD. I only did a few on that before I graduated to higher count per inch.
The tables are, left to right, a Gary Larson and a carved stone candlestick from India. That one is simply turned upside down. Instant table.
Last but not least, the original watercolor on the back wall is a gift from my friend Val, in England.
I couldn't talk Zar and Tessie into modeling inside the case...The opted to lock the scary eyed cat in there instead. Now we can all sleep better at night. At least I managed to do a little mini-ing while cleaning...
Please notice that even my Micro mark saw and table are clean....Not a speck of sawdust anywhere!
Now. If I can only keep it that way...Wish me luck
See you tomorrow.
