Buttercup Book Shop... Not Named for the Flower...
Anything cat sized belongs to Kota. That's the law of the land.
I had him replace it with Spike's Crypt.
I decided to put the bookshop down where we could see it for a while.
That meant another thing to clean well before displaying.
Of course Tessie had to but in. It is, after all, her shop. And she reminds me of that fact every time I get it down to clean...
No. She doesn't clean it. Ever...
I got carried away with an Exacto knife and some bargello for the seat. Not to bad for a plain old kit.
Private attic... Rare books. Nobody else is allowed up there.
It was named after the dragon on the front. That is Buttercup.
He is a very nice and very friendly dragon... And he is against book burning!!
I just noticed that I didn't oil the shingles on this side.
I use Old English Lemon Oil on any of my wood pieces. Including shingles and half timbers.
I had better go back and do it, before it slips my mind.
Back to work.
See you tomorrow.
