Taking Stock Of What's What...
Meanwhile, I spent part of the morning running errands in town and the other part cleaning out the Clockwork Cottage to see what still has to be done. It was piled to the ceiling with supplies on both floors.
That makes it kind of hard to work. Now I have no excuse....Other than, I have to put all of the stuff that was shoved in there in it's proper place.
It looks like I am in pretty good shape on furnishings, with the exception of the dining room...Does Zar really need a dining room? The only kind of parties he throws are the Hard Rock Hotel kind. Loud music all night long. But....Since the Clockwork Cottage is in our bedroom, maybe he does need a place for sit down, formal dinners....
The floor in that room is the brown version of the slate paper.
I finally found the rug for the kitchen. It was in a shelf in the family room. I won't have to replace it with anything else, in order to use it in the kitchen. I do have to do something about the living room rug though. It is definitely too small.
Change of subject. I found this book at the dollar tree....Yes. For a dollar.
My first thought was to use some of the illustrations for paintings in dollhouses...
After looking through it, I am fascinated with the structure of it and probably won't tear it apart.
It is supposed to be letters between two people and all of the writing is in the form of correspondence between them.
The great part is how it is illustrated. In general the left hand page is for the writing and the right is for illustrations.
All in all, the book is outstanding, as far as layout and illustrations.
I haven't sat down to read it yet. When I do, maybe I will change my mind about using the illustrations... I kind of doubt it though.
I am trying to figure out if this is part of a series. If it is, I will probably start looking for the rest. I love the illustrations. I have never heard of Nick Bantock, but after paying a dollar for the book, I am now a big fan!
Off to work and read....Not necessarily in that order....
See you tomorrow.
