Tessie Meets Her Match?

I permanently installed the front draperies this morning.

This is before all of the fancy work was added.  Awfully sedate.

Just wait....
I added a lot of the rayon ropes that I made and went through my jewelry findings for extras.  I tried beads, but didn't like them. 

This is what I ended up with.  Now for the inside....

That is what caused all of the ruckus this morning.

It seems that Junior thought that Tessie was going to spring for the interior fittings. 

Are you kidding?  The biggest skinflint in Arizona is not going to sell a shop and then come back and decorate for the new owner....We knew that there had to be a catch somewhere, when Tessie agreed to sell so easily.

There was almost a clawing and scratching argument before they were done.

Personally, I think that Junior was just lucky that Tessie didn't tear down the draperies and take them with her when she left.
About an hour later, Tessie reappeared.  Junior was ready for her.

It seems that Junior has been taking care of Mick, the jaguar that Tessie left to fend for himself when he got a bit testy with her one day.

Now he is Junior's guardian....No more Tessie.

I stood back and Zar had a ringside seat on the roof whilst the two went at it, once again.

I won't repeat all of the things that were said.  You don't want to hear that.

I will repeat Junior's final words though. 

It goes as follows...."OK.  I will pay for my own furniture and accessories, but the contract that we signed is null and void.  The establishment will, from this day forward be known as "Three Moons Fortunetelling".  Mick will be guarding the front door at all times....Sometimes he gets pretty hungry. Witches are his favorite food... And one other thing! STOP calling me Junior!  My given name is Zofi!"

I have never seen Tessie without an answer back before....However, she did turn to me and hiss...."Finish this quick!  I need a new project to run.  NOW!"

With that, she zapped away.  Zar and Spike disappeared at the same time.  I don't think that I want to go near my workroom for the rest of the day....I hear things being thrown around and feet being stomped.  I think I will tend to my knitting....

See you tomorrow.

Well, I hate to say it, but it was bound to happen one day. Sorry Tessie, it may taste bad, but you have to take your medicine! It's a shame she won't be able to visit such a beautiful fortune telling shop.
Big hug,

Wow! The cords look great! Love the tiger guarding the door. You write such good stories. :D

hehehehe...Tessie lost this round but I'm sure they'll be a few more soon :)

So Spike just sat there?! :@)

It's looking very nice, Casey. I like the half moon and all the jewelry findings and all the colourful ropes. The name Zofi seems more appropriate for a gypsy fortune teller. I guess our Tessie knows when she's beat. Isn't this the first time, though? Doesn't she always win? There must be a loophole somewhere!

Spike is no dummy. Did you see the size of that jaguar? Loophole? What loophole? Stay tuned.....

Merri said...

LOL, so Tessie got brought up short, huh? Better watch out, she'll be hunting a guardian of her own that can eat that jaguar for breakfast!
