Brown is Down and the Stones Rock!
Remember those little glass jars, full of nail polish add ons? I really disliked the plastic plugs in the top...They will now have cork stoppers. I got out my handy dandy roll of cork shelf liner and cut a small piece, like the one that you see in the front. I simply rolled it up, sticky side in, and stuffed it in the neck of the bottle...It worked. Now I won't have to go searching for tiny corks. I left the end showing, so that you could see how I did it. I will turn that to the wall when I put it on a shelf.
I also experimented with cutting down one of those plastic boxes that I used for the corner box yesterday. I got a passable storage box, that you can see through, to put on the shelves. Kind of like the ones in my real room.
Yes. I changed my mind again. That's a six year old's privilege. I am not being a Scanner. I didn't change projects. I just changed the outer surface. And I like it a lot more.
When I was little, we had friends in Michigan tht had a stone house. I always thought that they lived in a castle...It was my favorite building back then. Now I will have one of my own.
Please ignore the lady at the window. She has been following me everywhere with that sign. I asked her what she thought she was doing?
Her answer was, "We are behind. I am just doing my job."
So now she thinks that this will do the trick...Meanwhile I just keep tripping over signs. They are all over the house. She keeps making more.
Here's a close up of the end of the house. I wanted you to see that the first layer is just plain flat egg carton fitted together piece by piece. The two columns at the rear of the house and this side took me about 6or 7 hours yesterday and last night.
The right column on the bay has some of the torn carton layered on top.
When I finish these two steps, I will start scoring and shaping the cement lines between the stones.
When I get home from the witches mini meeting, I will start doing some more.
I hadn't planned on using those, but then I saw these pieces. Mad scientist time...
This was supposed to be a box bed. Not too impressive, but then it might make a good foundation for a daybed/couch for under the double window.
Who knows? Maybe I will need a nap now and then. You will have to wait and see.
I ordered Zar to keep Tessie in line and out of trouble whilst I am gone today... So far, he hasn't even succeeded in getting the sign away from her.
Oh well....At least it will keep her busy while I am away....Maybe it will cut down on the loss of toothpicks. Make Tessie happy. Go vote for her.
See you tomorrow.
