Only one of each, but the plural has a nicer ring to it I think.
Already junked up with all some of my crap. Too many people with too much money at that auction! I paid my max for this (I always decide before bidding starts what my max on any item is – and I stick to it, cuts way down on the buyers remorse with the bonus I don’t over pay). But anyway, I got it. I’m thrilled with it. Plus dh & I got it in the house all set up with no damage. It’s about 7 ft tall with 4 glass shelves (they each have grooves for plates cut in them too – not that I’m gong to put plates in there, but still…). The wood is Walnut. It’s lighted and the door glass is beveled too. I still got a deal on it even though I had to pay my max, it’s a quality piece and will be with me forever.
And second shelf from the top…
Four little mermaids followed me home.
Awwww…. look at her dear little face. She’s so cute I’m sure she farts rainbow colored bubbles. Not my usual thing, but they got me. Oh and they were totally cheap. That helped. Or else they could go be cute in someone else’s house.
Now for the flamingo bit.
I did tweak it a tiny bit. I pretty much copied someone the Chat BB. I liked hers better, so I made mine like hers. Which is one of the big advantages to joining an online project late or being a generally slow stitcher.
Here’s where I was Saturday night.
When I screamed and shoved it off to the corner. That green for the corner flower. WRONG freakin’ green. I’m so mad. It was my fault. That doesn’t make me any less mad. Sunday morning I frogged out the mistake and this all the further I’ve gotten (I did have to take a couple hours away from home to go pick up my curio, it was too difficult to try and remove it right after the auction).
The little flamingo medallion only took me one evening. And if I quit making mistakes and actually dedicate some time to this part, I can see each one taking only a couple of days. Yeah part 3 done by week’s end. hahahahahahaha :deep breath: hahahahahahahaha
