Problem Solved...

I finished the barley twist table this morning.  Not two minutes after I did, it disappeared...

I knew just where to look.  And I immediately went to check on Lettice.

Actually, she is fine.  When I asked her how she was feeling, she said,  "I am of the opinion that Tessie is not to be trusted.  It took me a while to extricate myself  from the spell.  Being a longer practitioner  of witchcraft than that child, I know more about how to fix things than she does."

I was very surprised.  I had no idea that she was of that persuasion. 

She also whispered to me to please keep it quiet.  And then the real shocker...."You know, I am actually her great, great grandmother....Please don't advise her of that particular fact. She can't figure out how I managed to escape her spell..."  I am guessing that Lettice has the upper hand if she wants it.
Anyway, I had to take the table away from Tessie and I needed a bit of help.  Lettice was my secret weapon. 

I pulled the table out of the sewing box and Lettice slammed the lid shut and fastened the catch....

There is a very irate witch in that box....I am either going to have to let her out or drill holes in the bottom  of the box for her to get air.

Lettice was pleased with the table and I also found a  portrait from 1585 that I am going to use on the lid wall.

I also still have to make a stool and a mirror.  The poor man can't put on  makeup without a mirror, can he?
Now for Spike's Mystery box.  No more pink rug in the body of the box...I will replace the other pink with tile.  I am starting the interior furnishings...

Any guesses?  Yes there will be shelves in the back.  They are just stuck in there to see how they fit....They won't be crooked when I finish....I hope...

Other than that, wait and see.....I have to go check on Tessie...Maybe I will open the box just a crack and shove in a couple of potato chips.

See you tomorrow...

Very interesting development regarding Tessie's ancestral lineage! From the look of things, she has found her match. I never thought I would see the day! She'll have to be on her toes, that's for sure. I see our Spike is being his usual patient and quiet self.

Hey Casey,
It might to better to shove in a few cookies! I can't begin to guess what the mystery box is, but I am excited to see the pink tile!!

Hi Casey. The sewing room is coming along fine and so is the male dressing room. As for the Mystery
box, it's looking good for whatever
it is going to be. So far, I figure
it has a sky, mountains, trees, rocks and a shelf system. So I'm thinking perhaps it just might,
maybe, I think it could, be a
scientist's room. Hope so!

Maybe it's a collection of Native American baskets and pottery? That or Spike is running a carnival game with prizes on the shelves. Obviously, I haven't a clue lol.
