More Minis... Mostly...

OK. So this isn't mini, but I am waiting for the glue to dry. 

I have been seeing garden totems all over the net and decided to try my hand.  I got the glass at Goodwill and my own cupboard, so it cost me next to nothing.

The black plate at the bottom is for stability.  It will be covered with plants, dirt and rocks when it is in place.

I have enough different glass to do a couple more.  I have to see how this one works out first.
We finished the moving process yesterday and Reggie seems to be happy with the move.

He has a better view of everything that is going on in the house.
As for Cordelia... She is never home, so she doesn't care where the house is.

She spends most of her time elsewhere...
Tessie took over the space where the Forest Fantasy Cottage was before.  It looks like the kitchen is twice as big without it... And...I can actually get around this cottage to clean the counter.

Now if I could just get Tessie to go somewhere that is not here, I would be happy.

She is doing her "director of  operations" thing. Clean the kitchen.  Wash the dishes.  Make me some cookies!....

Maybe I will go finish cleaning the work room.  Nope.  I'm not that desperate yet.  Not quite.

I think that I will bake some chocolate chip cookies and toss a plate of them into the workroom... She will follow them in and I can slam the door and lock it!  Where's my cookie recipe? That should work...

See you tomorrow.

I like the way that you have arranged the Sewing Cottage and it looks to me like Tessie is happy with it, too! :))

Hi Casey. I wanted to comment on all your shifting around of mini houses. Tessie's
house is looking great! I wonder what she is going to sew. I was glad to get a
glimpse of the Forest Fantasy Cottage again. Out of sight, out of mind, you know.
I love all your mini houses and the great work you have put into them. So when you
don't feature them in your blog, I sometimes go back through your archives and
check them out again. Which is exactly why you set up the archives, right? Sometimes I'm looking for ideas and sometimes I just want to dream of having finished cottages.
Two of my cottages are unfinished.Someday they will be finished. But it's a good thing I have two large houses and a collection of roomboxes to "play" with or I would be one unhappy miniaturist.Cheers to miniatures to brighten our lives!

Elizabeth and Phyllisa, Tessie will never be happy until, like a hoarder, she won't be able to walk through MY house without climbing over one of her houses, every few feet!
