Time to breathe. .

I wanted to show this off it is looking so well, By the way I was playing with the settings on my camera wahtya think? It took half a bucket of grout, i find out after, it works better if you water it down. The top will have a smoking chimney. There is a cover for it. The shingle were uh, fun yeah that's it. I added the top two floors because looking at this wall was driving Zoinkers. I still need some of those single french doors, I do have another window some where. . . Oh by the way,please excuse the mess. I work better in creative chaos. I will clean it up honest!

This is the side wall next to the tower it will have rocks, and cedar shakes. The floor is a nice light blue. The posts will be half cedar shakes half stone, I might ad a seat or two built into the railing. There will be no roof on the side though. Not sure about porch posts, might still do those we will see. I thought of adding a balcony but I would have to rework the master bedroom.

These two are of the balcony a close up this one you can see the supports above you can see the diagonal siding. I wanted different lets go inside.

This is the nursery this room will be in progress, with tools here and there Studs showing on the wall. Plaster sticking through etc.

This is going to be the butlers room probably done a shades of worn green I have a murphy bed to go in here. There will be a door into this room

This will be a sewing room a nook area with a raised area for the dummy and I will probably hide the power strip in here. There will be an arch with curtains going across. That little step up goes into the ball room.

As always there are more pics here at green leaf lots of new pics of my dogs here too. . .

Till Next time,

A really good Thanks Giving

Admittedly I should have posted this sooner but, I worked Sunday, (last weekend) we were having our thanks giving supper then, so any ways, while I was working, I was approached by one of my coworkers who had a friend associated with the shelter. Anyways I was asked if I wanted a dog, as you all know i really have no room, I stated to hesitate.

'Shes a year old border collie really nice dog.'

Oh Why is some on giving her away then?

[Then came the bomb shell.] There not they are going to put her down tomorrow.


Because she isn't selling.

Grumble a curse about shelters. So I phoned home, it was a quick decison, no one wanted an another dog, but we wanted her not to be put down. So we adopted her She is Boder collie husky maybe german shepard.

Being born in a shelter she was only trained on news paper but so far, she is doing ok. Well She is great with the kids, great with buddy very playful but very skinny and has issues with sharing.

Well work on that

So far she is quite settled! Her name is misty, the thing about that is she came with a different one, but she didn`t respond to it, we were disusing names when this one came up she cam over and gave us a look like, whatya want! Misty is the black dog Buddy Is the white dog.

Till next time ,

Already? Yikes. Well here is a tut for a perfume tray, if you all are good, you might get Halloween something. . .. Any ways . . . As you can see from the above photograph you will need, a small piece of strip wood, and a piece of thin lumber. I made my tray to fit on my dresser in the master bedroom. You will also need a knife ruler and a pencil is always helpful. Also You will need various beads for your perfumes. I used something else which you will soon see.
The base of my tray is an inch and a half long by 3/4ths of an inch. The strip wood was a touch thick so I split it in half and Cut the sides an inch and a half and the other side 3/4ths of an inch. I then mitered the corners and and stained it. The stir stick is optional, you can create a little lip around the box if you want. I didn't.

So trays need handles right? I used bugle beads and after this photo was taken painted them gold with my trusty krylon pen. The feet are beads but you can use buttons, or other findings.

I glued the feet so there are only a little showing from up top. Just eyeball it so it looks even. I was going to use another smaller type of bugle beads for the feet but they were to tall.

Now for the handles try as might. This is the only amount of glue that would let them stay. In this case less isn't more.

Now I bought these cocktail sticks from the dollar store [dollarama] I cut them down so there is a touch of the metal stick left. And I just stuck them in.

Here is the final result I really like the way it turned out.The chains sticking out of the dresser are just an inch if chain, one painted gold with you guessed it, my krylon gold leafing pen. The 'unmentionable' sticking from the top drawer is a bit of ribbon. I really like this dresser!

Till next time,
