Today was a ‘miniatures in the mail’ sort of day.
First, I had ordered the bathroom components a little while ago and they finally arrived (I printed out the blue floor tiles and laid them down temporarily so the tub and sink would stand out…or else everything would be white for now).
In the same package, I also received a couple baskets for the linen closet.
And to top it all off, I got a wonderful surprise from a friend in Montreal who had sent me a late birthday present of the most wonderful little books. There’s a book on French literature (how appropriate!) and one on palm reading that includes a hidden key.
There’s also a wonderful kit to make 120 old books when I get the time…can’t wait to make the library. Thank you, Annie!!
For now, the two books are residing in the nursery…the only room in the house that’s safely away from water and cooking grease.
It’s been a busy week at work, so I haven’t had time to do much on the rooms, but I did print out the bathroom border to see if it worked (I think it might be a bit too big here) and put the studs in the last bathroom wall. I’m still working this room out, so I haven’t glued the floor or the walls in place yet and I haven’t cut out the opening for the window either.
I also spent a bit of time hemming and sewing lace on another shelf cover.
(Luckily I’ve got a miniature sewing machine to help me in my sewing projects…)
I also finished some sheets and towels, so the linen closet is starting to fill up a little.
Plenty more to do…but for now, good night.
