Don't forget to poke the photos to enlarge!

A New Supply!!!

Of sharp pointy sticks!  Tessie was thrilled... I am going to have to find a good hiding place, if I don't want to be poked with them.

I found these at Walmart this morning in the kitchen section along with small tools and other toothpicks.  Nowhere near the paper kitchen supplies.

They should be readily available.  They are put out by Diamond.  Not some off brand or import.

After the photo was taken, Tessie disappeared.  Toothpicks and all!  I am now officially in trouble... Where are the sharp pointy sticks?

I decided that there needed to be more pargeting than just around the door.  I don't know what they call it in North Africa... I do know that parget is the English term, so that's what I am calling it for now.

I did the base of the tub so that it can be seen through the bathroom door. 

Sooner or later I am going to get the bathroom installed.  I really want to finish this house, so that I can get onto other things...

If I do a bit every day, I may have it finished next year sometime.  I have to start concentrating... Oh!  There's a baby squirrel outside, eating lettuce....  No!  Concentrate!

Anyway, I am going back to it now.  I must finish!

See you tomorrow.

Oh Casey, you have your work cut out, butt it really is worth it. It looks amazing!! Such a clever idea and I love the use of glued string - inspired!
Good luck, and try not to stare at the squirrels!!!

I love those toothpicks. I have not found them here in The Netherlands yet unfortunately.
I do like the decorations you are making, so clever!!

Hello Casey,
It is coming along beautifully. The toothpicks are great, but if Tessie has them beware. check under the covers before you get into bed.
Big hug,
