All Quiet on the Western Front....

I am continuing and making progress now. 

Working around the room, I am on the western wall... I still have some rearranging to do when I get everything in place, but I am happy with it so far.

I moved the stack or drawers from one end to the other of the bookcases and turned the one on the end sideways to get more room behind the desk.  I even have room for the small worktable, in front of the window now. 

Spike likes the arrangement.  No. Not the dog.  The vampire.  He sits in a copy of King Tut's favorite chair, on the corner of the table...

Walter got him for me one Christmas when Buffy was still on.  I totally repainted his face, so that it would look more like James Marsters.  Unfortunately this one is about the size of a Barbie.  No I am not going into 1/6 scale just to make him a room.  He will have to be happy with the throne.
Here you can see the switch.  It makes the wood far easier to get to.

There is still a lot of straightening to do in here.  I am basically moving furniture right now.

I am getting there....One step at a time.
You may be wondering what happened to the yelling from yesterday...

It is very quiet.  I gave Zar a large sack of pick up sticks, shaped like tools.  Unfortunately, or maybe fortunately, there was a wand in the mix...

Tessie is now approximately 1 1/4" tall. She kept yammering all morning...Zar got tired of it.

When he found the wand...He turned to her.  He pointed it at her and said, "Tessie!  You deserve this!"

She is now sitting on his arm... Still yammering!  Now it sounds like a bunch of crickets.  I don't understand a word she is saying.

It has been a peaceful morning for me, but not so much for Zar... He can't shake her off, or shut her up.

When will he ever learn?  I guess that I should go See if I can reason with him to turn her back to the right size.  Now he knows what I go through every day.  I don't think that it will be a hard sell.

Gotta run before mayhem ensues...

See you tomorrow.

Hehehehehe..... poor Tessie! Maybe Zar can plop her on top of a cookie before he turns her back, just in case.

I hope Zar can change Tessie back or you might be making a 1/4 inch house.

I already have a couple of 1/4" houses and a couple more in the works... There is a clone of Tessie in one of them already. I don't think that I could stand another one!LOL

oh Casey I'm shocked that you wont make Spike his own room, it's just a little box crypt and he'd be so happy there (you can even find a barbie and repaint her as buffy or Drusilla ....wouldn't it be fun :)

Marisa, Spike already has his own crypt, where he hangs out with Buffy. He simply switches bodies and goes. If you want to see, just go to Spike's Crypt, in the Labels section of the sidebar.
