The tower needs a bit more glitz. A tall chandelier is in order.
I thought I would cheat and use the bottom of the one in Tessie's attic in the craft cottage.
I should have started from scratch. It would have been faster.
Oh well. Now it's done.
I think that it needs a bit more. Maybe a swag at the bottom.
It took me more time than I thought it would. I have been at it since about 9:00AM. It is now noon.
I must have been holding this at an odd angle...It looks like there is a candle missing. I think I need to do a bit of bending and adjusting. The E-6000 is not quite dry on the candles either.
If you are interested in making one for yourself, there is a tutorial here. http://caseymini.blogspot.com/2013/06/of-silk-purses-and-sows-ears.html
This is another version, but once you learn to do it, you can make them as tall or as short as you want....Just a change in the length of the wires and number of beads.
I had to try it to see if it fit in the room. It does.
I was tempted to drop it on Tessie's head. She has been playing continually since yesterday. She remembered a few tunes from long ago...
Yes....She remembered "Bohemian Rhapsody". One more chorus and I will strangle her.
I found out the secret of her longevity...Someone suggested earplugs for me...Sometime before that occurred she got the idea without any suggestions from elsewhere.
I asked her a question a couple of hours ago and she just kept pounding on the keyboard.
I lifted her hair from over her right ear and sure enough...Wads of bathroom tissue stuck out of her ear. Then I noticed that Spike was sporting the same ear attire. Poor dog.
I guess I am not the only one that can't stand the noise. My question is...Why play, if you don't want to listen?
Unfortunately, I think that she has decided to keep the music room. I am going to have to lock her out of it at night or we won't get any sleep at all.
Back to crystals and candles.
See you tomorrow.
