Walls and Windows..

I knew that there was going to have to be a bathroom wall... It's not included in the kit.  Here we go again.

I slid a piece of plywood in to see what it would look like this morning.

Tessie kept mumbling, "I need a little privacy, please." 

"Wait a minute!  Who is going to live here?  Tessie, if you need privacy go back to the townhouse and use your own bathroom!" I reasoned.... Well, I tried anyway.

She just ignored me and kept making plans.

She claims that Daisy sent her a message and told her that she didn't want a swinging bed.  I have my doubts... She zapped the oldest, carved bed with roses in.  The one with the tall headboard wouldn't fit.

This one covers the window, but I am not that crazy about that particular window anyway.  Shutters on the outside and curtains on the inside, will solve that problem. 

The next thing I know, she had a dresser in place.  I left before she zapped me down to her size... Yes. She had the nerve to threaten bodily harm!

When she gets that mad, it is safest to just leave.  And I did.
I went and found fencing and planters for the roof top.   The plastic baskets were part of a package of candy cups for Easter, years ago.  They make great planters when painted.
 It's quite easy.  I painted the planter with charcoal gray and then put a dry brush coat of turquoise over that.  Almost instant old iron with a copper patina.

They can also be painted to look like a wicker basket.  For that, you just do a brown, with lighter brown dry brush over it.

Anyway, I am going to try to avoid Tessie for the rest of the day.  I'm leaving altogether.  Wednesday Witches mini meeting starts at 1:00.  Safety in numbers.  Let's see her go up against a half dozen big witchy people.

See you tomorrow.

That bed is so gorgeous! I love those little baskets and also the fence. I see Spike is being his usual accommodating self! He's always so quiet, dear Spike!

me encanta esa cama , yo no me preocuparia mucho por Tessie, ella siempre acaba por distraerse con otra cosa que llama mas su atencion, que vaya bien la reunion
