It's Done!

And as usual, it's Tessie's!

This morning I got up and added some trim to the bookcase.

It's hard to see, but I added some molding around the top and some double bead molding around the front and bottom sides.
The corner needed something semi-tall.  I made a plant stand from a large newel post and a flat round Woodsie. The plant, I already had made and it was sitting in the printer's drawer along with a number of books.
Tessie was in place even before I finished.  Spike and Zar came a few minutes too late...You can tell that Zar had high hopes.  He brought his favorite bottle cap foot stool...

Spike has no hopes other than squeezing in next to Tessie.  She lets him.  Body heat helps. He got on the tile and the whole thing disappeared, leaving Zar sitting on the counter all by himself... Poor Zar.  I may have to make another more manly version that Tessie won't like.
Don't ask what is in the bottle on top of the bookshelf!  I suspect that it's something vile. She is keeping it out of Spike's reach.  He is prone to knocking bottles over and drinking the contents.

I imagine that I am going to be seeing Tessie in all kinds of strange places today.  She has to keep one step ahead of the rest of the gang.  If she doesn't they will all want a little corner box of their own.

Back to work.

See you tomorrow.

I can't blame her, the little corner box is delightful and exactly what one needs for a cosy reading place!
