Plugging Along... At a Snail's Pace...

Sooner or later, I will get the room finished.  It's not going to be today...
 I did find this Oriental Shopping bag from London.  Cleaned it up and took a photo...

Everything inside is either stuff that I have collected over the years or things that people have brought back from trips to the orient. 

The doll is one that I found at a doll show here in Tucson.  She is not quite in scale, but she has always stood beside the bag, since I got her.

She and the bag are once more in the living room where they can be seen.

The basic bag is easy to make.  It is simply one of the rectangular shopping bags.  I built a box of foam core to fit inside snuggly. Then simply decorated it as I would any small box.  They can be painted or papered.  If you want to protect the things inside, simply cut a piece of clear plastic to go in the front of the box, behind the window.

Here's proof that I still have a couple of holes in the bookcase to put stuff in... Please don't look at the right side of the photo.  It's another view of the piles in the first photo.

And while I am doing the cleaning... Tessie and Zar have rejoined MY party. This is sooo unfair. 

I realize that they are happy for me... But do they have to rub in the fact that I am too big to go to my own celebration...

I think that I am going to have to make a mini me. The only problem is, it would be hard to tell which one was Tessie and which one was me!

I am going back to cleaning.  I have the Wednesday Witches coming here to celebrate tomorrow. If I can't fit in the tiny party I will have a big one of my own... And they can't come.  They are too small! They might get stepped on... Deliberately!

See you tomorrow.

Hi Casey. You do realize (as I do) that the workroom cleaning is NEVER done! It is
a continual cycle.
I would like to see you do a mini Casey. You could tell her from Tessie because she
would wear shoes.........right?
In the meantime, have a good time celebrating with your friends.

Phyllisa, that would never work. I am just about as much a bare footer as Tessie.
