Not Quite Ready for Parties...
I decided to play.
First I put a pitched roof on top with foam core and illustration board.
I simply drew an equilateral triangle with a base the width of the house and went from there.
I had to have the house so that it would still open, so the roof was added in two sections.
The triangles were foam core and the roof and center brace were illustration board.
Before I put those into the house, I painted the outside.
Spike insisted upon having his name above the door. That way there will be no mistake as to the owner.
Tessie keeps nosing around...There is no way that she could use the house, but she keeps prodding me to hurry and finish.
The calendar above the bone bowl is a pit bull pinup. Spike is quite pleased with that one.
I need to finish off the attic and then we will have a house, but Spike keeps hinting that he would like a small yard. Picky dog!
That explains why he and Tessie are always at odds.
In fact, as I finished the photo session, Tessie came in, tore the laws off of the wall and took off...As she did, I heard, "These are MY laws. How dare that dog try to steal them! I have to change the top of the sign to "Tessie's Property Laws! Then I will cover the bones and paw prints with pretty flowers. No one will ever know...
Yup. That explains everything. Tessie is part Pit Bull!
See you tomorrow.
