Waiting and Refurbishing....
A friend of Walter's is coming to pick up some of the old pieces tonight. Then hopefully things will get back to normal and I can start decorating for big Christmas.
While I am waiting, I am refurbishing the Christmas cottage....OK. To be honest, I never did the inside last year.
I simply decorated the outside and left it at that. It is a cottage that I picked up at a thrift store for five dollars a couple of years ago.
I finished the exterior and must have had plans for the interior....
Anyway, I did have interior frames made for the upstairs windows and the front door... Just not installed.
I am thinking that the pink rug has to go, but I have to find something to replace it, before I get rash and rip it out.
I painted the top floor walls, Christmas Red....I am not sure that I can stand that...Not my favorite color, but maybe with lots of white trim and furniture it won't be too bad.
I painted the bottom floor walls Forest Green.
Then I put Tessie and Zar to work painting furniture. The hutch on the main floor used to be one of those Michael's things. I did a lot of work on it and stained it last year. Never used it. Now I quite like the way it looks.
Zar re did the lowboy that used to sit in the bedroom of the townhouse. It didn't live there long..It was black and depressing. Now it is white and we painted the basket/drawers green.
I figure that, if there are any elves around, they are going to need a low counter to build toys on...
Anyway, Tessie went on strike about ten minutes ago and is back to working on her "nice" Christmas list...Spike is still the only candidate...She isn't working very hard. I am trying to make it onto that list, but so far, no luck. I have to think of something to get on her good side....Wait....Does she have a good side???
See you tomorrow.
