New little bits!

This internet shopping thing is great, if not slightly dangerous ;o)
I purchased these two lovely items from two fantastic artisans, the elegant Oriental rug from Dales Dreams and the adorable Kitty from Bridget McCarty.
Dales Dreams Oriental rug carpet, beautiful, elegant for the dressing room.

Bridget McCarty, Adorable little kitten, such mischief, she will run circles around the basset hound I am sure.
It really helps to inspire and makes me want to finish the large house faster so these beautiful items have a place to live!

Sticks and Stones and Glue

Finally, over 3 months later, I am working on the very last room for the hard wood! (Yippee!) It's quite pathetic, now when I go to Starbucks, I don't want to add anything to my coffee that I have to mix in, as I get stir stick envy....why are theirs so much straighter, flatter....etc. Oh! The "stones" reference in the title, that is what the tin can is full of, it helps weigh down the wonky-doolally sticks when I glue them in.
I ended up taking off the flip up roof to finish the floors as no lock hinge would work and it kept banging me on the noodle.
