As I was getting ready to leave for my visit, Rose expressed her desire to go with me for a "girl day". I'm not sure how much of a girl day it will be, the trip is to return my mom's power washer that we borrowed. But, what the heck, it would make the drive less lonely. Just as I was about to go out the door, the Captain hollered that he would like to come too so we made a jolly group for sure! While I visited with my mom, the Captain and Rose visited the people in my mom's dollhouse and Rose had a bemused expression on her face as she talked to the Lovely Marilyn. Marilyn's married now to a local banker and is very happy so there were no ruffled feathers during the visit...thank goodness!
The ride home was uneventful and I was curious what would be waiting for me when we got home. Everything seemed normal although there was a slight scent of cotton candy in the shop. Well, at least they cleaned up after themselves. The skellies weren't saying a word so I can imagine the partying that went on! So, did I actually get anything miniature done?! Yes! More painting on the inside of the roof pieces and and a final coat on the roof ridge trim.
I found a couple of brackets that I think will add a little more dimension to the cardboard trim pieces so painted those up too. Have no idea where they came from, just a couple of random bits in my wood box that I thought might work. Will metalize the black pieces today and put yet another coat on the underside of the roof pieces. We are inching closer to the electrical so I am steeling myself for that. I'm sure it will be easier than I think, but will share the process with you. Have a great day all!
