The construction begins......

I was able to spend yesterday working on the room box. It isn't too far done but it is on its way. I am now working figuring out how to do the various things I want to do to the walls to make it look like the "Milady's Shoppe." Not very fancy at this point. But it is underway. I really can't do much work today because my shop is open and busy AND we are off to an auction tonight. But I am hopeful I can do more tomorrow. Meanwhile I am making plans.

This picture below is the original shop I started. But as you can see it is a little small and doesn't show off things very well. So with the new one I will be able to be a better job I hope. As you can see I already have a lot of items for the shop. And I have a box full of more items not even shown in the picture. So...................... once the walls, floors windows (that I plan to add) are in place I should be ready to add the "inventory" to the shop. I hope to done with most of it by next weekend.

So check in on Monday for more.

A change of pace for January

I have been busy with so many things that my blog has definitely taken a back seat.

The cats have been posing too..... or "caught in the act" anyway.

Spooky loves enclosed places. No wonder our clothes are covered with cat hair....

Spooky likes to lord it over Bentley as well.

The sisters (Spooky (L) and Tuffy (R) really do like each other and can ofter be seen side by side.

Normally by this time of the month of January I am well into a project. Lately it has been miniatures and this year was supposed to be no exception.

Well I will just have to be a little late at it.

I recently bought two room box kits to use for a couple of projects I have worked on but never liked what I had done with them. so....................... I got these two room box kits and will work on them one at a time to finish off these projects.

Not much to show you yet...... but here is a picture of the boxes. Then I will show as I go along.
Later today I will put the first box together and figure out what I have to do to make it like I want it.
The first project is called "Milady's Dress Shoppe" I had made up a shop in a very small room box and it was so crowded and I kept finding things to add to it..... SO..... I hope this will allow me to put everything together.

Tune in Tomorrow.... Saturday, to see how I have progressed, or if I have. I have time to work today as my shop will not be open due to all the snow.
