The End of Construction

It's Funny Friday
by Prudence

Hi Guys.
Whew...this was quite a renovation, M&D's bathroom and bedroom.  Mom has hated the bathroom since they bought the house but Dad said he could and would make it bee-u-tee-ful.  Well, me and Mom both doubted that something so ugly could become bee-u-tee-ful.  After he designed the new kitchen we should have known are before pictures....
Mom's vanity.  She had to get into that bathtub to open or close the window and how stupid is that?
Dad's vanity, potty, very small shower
Whoa, on those mirrors, the lady sorta dried brush gold on the frames, and look at those lighting fixtures.  The walls were a puke (sorry) green with some kind of ugly faux finish.
Bye, bye Mom's side.  The only thing not ripped out were the windows.
Old bathtub - gonzo.
New cave shower, see those horizontal lines in the orange material on the floor?  Heating coils, yes - the only thing that Dad wanted was a heated floor. Heated floor it is!
And here is the brand new bathroom

 As you can see, Mom's never alone.
 New bathtub
New cave shower, the door opens both to the outside and inside.
Lastly, the bedroom.  Just painting and replacing the nasty carpet with hardwood flooring.
Hope you enjoyed the tour.  Have a wonderful weekend and I will see you next Friday.

Ladybug, ladybug, fly away home....

It's Funny Friday
by Prudence

Here is our April ornament, isn't that fabric as cute as a bug's ear (ladybug that is)?

But of course things didn't go smoothly - never in this crazy family.  LuLu and Flora first thought they hid the box that came in the mail - we were on to them....then after me and Mom finished the ornie the two troublemakers wanted the ladybug charm (that was to hang on the ball), so they did what they do best - stole it. - I mean the ornie and the still unattached charm.
 But, again their half brained scheme didn't go off as planned.  Mom liked the charm but thought it was just a smidge large for the ornie, she makes her bows rather small and it just wasn't
I went into our stash of embellishments (I remembered that we had a card with cute ladybug stickers) and surprised Mom by sticking a little bug on the red trim piece.  
Cute, huh?
But, little dummy, Flora decided to wear the charm around her neck, she
couldn't figure out that when we saw her we couldn't guess what happened to it!
Now I ask you?  Little Dummy?  YES!

Ornament Thief

It's Funny Friday
by Prudence

I'll just show you with pictures...they are so busted!  Our April ornament kit arrived on Monday, these two little dummies think they are pulling a fast one on us - NEVER!
"Whoa, LuLu, this is hard work moving the box but it's really going to get back at Mom for always takin' Missy Prissy Pants Prudence's side.  Let's never tell them where the box is, okay?"
"I'm in Flora." 
"I feel lightheaded, LuLu"
"Yeah, so what, you are an air brain, ya know"

But  they think they are getting away with this act of ugliness.....not so, little monsters.
You see, I saw what they did with that box and of course I went straight to Mom.  So, while they were sleeping (no, not a spin off on the movie) me 'n Mom took the box, opened the bottom, took out the kit components, re-taped the box and placed it back under the doll cabinet, and it's still there.
Again, during their nap time we work on the ornie, and oh it's going to be adorable, red/white, black/white polka dots fabric, ladybug, ribbon....I'll show you our ornament next Friday.

Dog Tested, Dog Approved
(new mattress)
Well, the new bedding arrived and as you can see, there was fun to be had.....

Hi Guys
M&D have been redoing their bathroom and bedroom, it's almost complete but we aren't ready to show the before and after pictures.  The bathroom shower door and vanity top are being made so we are waiting for them to be installed.  I have lots of pictures to post but that won't be for a few more posts.  But the new bedding arrived and the puppies jumped right in for a good play session.

On fire....with projects

It's Funny Friday
by Prudence
Guess what?  I received this bee-u-tee-ful Easter card from Wilbur.  The lilacs are from Mom's garden, they are her most favorite flower followed by Lily-of-The-Valley and Johnny Jump-ups.
The "to do" list is getting shorter.

Good Morning, everybeary.  My teddy bear head is swimming - another room box, yes - we found yet another one packed away after moving.  As it turns out it was a perfect find, Mom couldn't fit one important piece in The Lady's Hat Shop, it is another Cynthia Howe online class, Making A Hat.

So, I came up with making a ladies fashions room and using the piece along with a few mannequins, shopping bags, anything to do with a ladies shopping spree.
The mannequins looked sorta bleak just standing there so I went to work.

  It's tough, having no fingers but I made two bee-u-tee-ful dresses out of scrap fabric from other projects.  Mom was so thrilled when she saw them, so now I am in charge of all fashion designs.
Here it is all finished.

Thank you for dropping in, we always love your visits.
