By a lot of weeding I mean a lot. I've got a whole flowerbed that has maybe two flowers and a bunch of weeds because the darn things just took over when I wasn't looking. But I've got a bunch of bulbs and I was going to get some mulch and cover everything up so the weeds wouldn't have a chance to come back before the bulbs sprouted.
Those were my intentions. And then I managed to goof up my neck. The result of which, even after a chiropractor visit, feels as if I've been in a car wreck. My husband made me promise that if I felt half as lousy this morning as I did Friday night that I'd do gardening another weekend. After all, he reminded me, its Texas. We really don't get the good cold weather until the end of October/ beginning of November. It isn't like I don't have time. So maybe one of the days I have off near the end of the month I'll do it.
Or next weekend if I'm feeling better. We'll see.
But the end result is there was no gardening for me today.
So I've been dollhousing instead.
I've gotten the trim up on the edge of the hinged wall and over the hinges.
Glued in the curtains
And got the ceiling beams into the bedroom, and glued the roof down. See my highly sophisticated method of weighing it down?
You can also see in two of the above pictures that I wired my lamp and got the battery pack hidden inside the table. I had intended to do the same with the octagonal table in the front room but when I took the lamp out of its packing it was broken. The bulb holder (whatever its called) came completely out of the lamp so it is no longer a working lamp. Again, Very Disappointed. I've ordered a duplicate because I'm OCD like that.
But I was getting more worried about the bathroom and how dim it might end up. So I'm making a wall fixture to go above the mirror and sink. I've got some thin brass tubing and antiqued brass jewelry findings and some glass globes I bought last year. I've got some battery operated LED lights that I can wire up and hide the battery in the attic under a box.
I also need some opinions. I want to add a lamp to the desk under the stairs and I'm wondering what all of you think. The front room is black and white with pops of red. So what would look better in the space? A white lamp with red shade, a red lamp with white shade, a straight red lamp or a white lamp?
I need opinions folks! Help!
