On the Move Again....

Here I go again....This is where the table with the Russian Cottage was when I got up this morning...It went away.

In its place is the embroidery/tool chest.  Not much in the way of jewelry in here.  It a burglar tries for valuables in this, about all he is going to find is needles, thread and a few assorted half done rugs.

There is also the odd mini tool in a couple of the drawers.

This is how it's going to be for now.  We are having Christmas here this year and I have to do a little baby proofing here and there.  There's still a long way to go.
You may be asking where the cottage went...Well, maybe not, but I am going to tell you anyway. 

I moved the nasty, mean, sharp tools and the top heavy table into the workroom.  It is sitting in the corner by the closet.  That door never gets closed anyway.  I am thinking very seriously of removing said doors  they are just in the way most of the time.

There is a good sized space behind the table, so that I can still get to the stuff behind.

See the Terrible Two?  In the course of moving, They found some Christmas items...Zar immediately put on the Santa hat and refuses to take it off.  To quote him, "Santa needs all the help he can get with this crew!"

They had to test the twig/root stools, so they set out to make "Naughty and Nice" lists for Santa.  The stools work nicely.  Being three legged, they are hard to tip over.  I still think I would like a more generous seat, although they don't seem to mind.

Tessie has the "Nice list"....It is very, very short...
She just announced, "I only have one name.  Spike is at the top of the list...and the bottom."

That dog gets away with all kinds of mischief.  He just doesn't get caught.  He blames it on the neighbor's(my) cats.

Zar made the mistake of volunteering to enter names on the "naughty list".  He has been writing for more than an hour.  I do believe that everyone I know is on that list.  He's not very original.  On the gift side of the list he wrote at the top(by my name), "Big bag of coal!".  After that, he just kept putting in "same".  Then after he got tired of that, it was " " " " " " " " " " ".

He had better watch out!  I am going to sneak in tonight, after he goes to sleep, and put his name above mine and in the gift part, I am going to write....Coal Mine!  I'll show him!

See you tomorrow.

Guess the little guys are just being themselves! Spike looks very interested in what's going on! Don't ask me why, but that dog cracks me up every time I see it. Zar looks so cute in that little hat!

Do you have a way of organizing your miniatures? As the things I buy for the McKinley and work with it being empty, I keep mine in a drawer, is was wondering if you keep yours a certain play.

Darah, I have been into minis for around 30 years. That's why I don't have a drawer. LOL. I have a workroom full. Go to the sidebar titled labels and look at the "workroom" section. You will see the various things I do to organize. It may take a while to go through, but you may find a few tips tha will work for you.

Sarah, I forgot to say, hit " older posts" at the bottom of the page until they stop showing. That will take you back to the first ones eventually.
