Indoors and Out....

We are finished!  Here's the outside, which you saw yesterday....It was finished then, but I had to chase down the bird and Tessie to really have it finished. 

I took the toilet bowl brush away from her, before she could get to the birdbath.  So...One problem solved.  Then I went to the kitchen and hid all of the saltshakers and unopened salt containers too....She is adept at getting into things and if she can't, she calls Zar.  No more bird catching!
Here's the inside.  I added a painting of the Grand Canyon.  No...I didn't do it.  I have a whole notebook full of all different kinds and styles of paintings that I have cut out of various sources over the years.  I actually had a choice of five grand canyon paintings.  This one fit the space and color requirements best.

I mounted on a piece of heavy card stock and framed it with plain picture frame molding.

I had the pillow and the rug in my stash too.

The floor was rather boring without something layered over it and this rug had the right colors and a kind of tile feeling in the design. 

The pillow was made from an old silk necktie.

As you can see, the cacti garden is still doing well...We shall see how long it lasts now.

I am closing the book on this one.  On to something else tomorrow...I don't know if I will go backward or forward.  It depends on the mood of the six year old.

Tessie is still annoying me about the hairdo.  I may just have to fix that before I go onto other things.  Let's face it.  She won't quit until I set it right...

See you tomorrow.

Forgot to add, today is the last day of Google reader...I just transferred all of the blogs that I follow over to bloglovin about 7 this morning....I am not sure that I will stay with it, but I wanted to make sure that I could still follow the blogs that I do now...As I understand it, Google is no longer going to support blogs that aren't blogger.  I transferred over by joining and then one click copied all of the ones I followed to a site there.  It is similar, but not quite the same...I guess I will have to get used to it or find another one.  There are several others out there.

It looks lovely! A cute little project. Wondering what sort of hairdo Tessie would like!

Fabiola said...

Wonderful! Everything is perfect.
Greetings, Faby

Lucille, she wants the old one back. Bangs and a bun. Very simple.

Kathi said...

This turned out great Casey!

I really need to get back to minis...
This real life stuff just takes too long!

If you liked Googlereader, you'll like The Old Reader, it's the exact same layout and includes the entire post, all photos and the facility to click through rather than scrolling and 'read' posts can easily be found.

Love these book boxes you're doing, lucky Tessie seeing them close up! Give the recalcitrant witch my love please ;)

You are doing a wonderful job with these boxes! Hannah
