Can't You See?



No, of course you can't see, because there's nothing to see,... now. I'm talking about all the fine tuning I've been doing on the AFH. Before I began there were gaps, painting mistakes, and missing parts. And you may not have seen them in a photo anyway. But I assure you, they were there. And now most of them are gone!
I admit I'd been dragging my feet a little getting back to working on my lovable behemoth of a house. There were so many things to do to it, I wasn't sure where to start! Plus, all my other projects are scattered around the GH, and sometimes I just can't resist a little painting here, or a little gluing there, so I don't. Resist, that is. lol.
I went to Dollhouse Treasures in Braintree(Ma.) today, as I had a gift certificate that my sister gave me for Christmas. I am planning to begin seriously thinking about furniture placement within a week or two, but I really want to make sure I have all the finish work - inside and outside - done first.

OOOOOOhhhh, Caitlin! Love this beautiful 'behemoth' of your's! Can't wait to see where you're headed with it. Thank you for your advice on my garden shed project. I've posted several pix today of the look I am going for and it is a bit over-stuffed. I suppose having worked at a nursery/garden shop, Motlow Creek Gardens, I like that gift shop type thing and I think mine is going to be a little garden shop. Let me know what you think and I'll be eager to see your progress on your's! And guess what?! My good friend and fellow-mini-er, Gen gave me the Sir Thom Thumb wheelbarrow for giving her a quilted wallhanging!!!
