Oh my, lots to catch up on.
Pernille’s little dog got his eyes, a pink heart nose and even a tongue:
And I finally got tiny screws to fix a thrift shop find:
This is a photo holder, but the lid does close. I put a background on it:
Pernille has been listening to Peter and the Wolf all afternoon!
I found a crown for her, and she wants to be a Queen for Halloween. I went ahead and bought some fabric to make a Queen’s gown:
You can’t see it well here, it is a sheer silky gold and rose print, gold fabric and tulle, gold ribbon and cut glass buttons. I picked up eyelashes to try on Pernille, which I put on her last night. It really changes how she looks and I was actually startled by the look. I am not sure yet whether to keep them or leave her bare eyed, which I actually like. The lashes give her older eyes. I will give it a couple of days tryout and get a photo soon. Then there is black paint to fix up Frank’s dressing room. I have the Hanna Montana case soaking to remove all the girly stickers. I will then paint it black and I have some accent paint for details.
I am getting better and better at leaving many of the finds behind in the store, but the record player and crown were musts. I plan on using the gold fabric for Frank’s pink velvet sofa too, although I have no idea how to set about doing it just yet.
Here is Pernille’s wallet with passport and airline tickets. I want to make an ID for the holder. I am so tickled with it.
I bought longer screws for her bed, now it is as tight and solid. I completely forgot to look at varnish though, it slipped my mind. I do want to give it protection eventually. Antique white paint for the wardrobe, but I could not find the periwinkle paint for the table and chair set. So I have lots of little projects to do, photo’s will come as they get done.
