Pink is not my favorite color. I have no idea why I decided that my tea shop roombox needed to be pink, but it jumped out at me and so pink it is. We had gloomy, cold, damp weather much of the weekend, so I did manage to get some work done on my roombox as well as some work done on my real house. I am trying out a tip I saw on another blog where you take a linoleum tile and carve the grout lines for smaller tiles into the large tile. I don't know if I am doing it wrong or not, but it is hard on the hands. I managed to get the smaller room done before I decided I needed a couple days break from the carving. I also started to make the built in shelves along the back wall. They look pretty simple right now, but I decided mini making is like painting a picture. You have to have the ugly bit first to get to the beautiful bit. That's my story anyhow.
I spent a lot of the weekend painting real walls in my real house. Our old farmhouse has two stories. My hubby is not a fan of stairs, so I pretty much have taken over the second floor of our house. It has one large room (I call it the library guest room) that has bookshelves for my book addiction and a futon for guests that come to stay. There is a table and chairs up there for guests that want a workspace and our old desktop computer that I hardly ever use because it is sooooo slow compared to the laptop. I have been repainting this room- it is the horrid green color that you saw in the previous post with the chairs on the wall. No one but me would love that color! Right next to the large library room is my craft room, which is a huge disaster. I think almost anyone that has a craft room has a disaster at one point or another. My hubby's daughter and her family are coming at the end of May and so I really want to get that room upstairs cleaned up and looking fine for guests.
Today I am kind of cranky because I feel like I didn't really finish anything at all this weekend and I really want another day to stay home and not go to work! I also decided this morning that I need to get back on my weight watchers program so that my sundresses fit this summer, so of course I am cranky about that too! I think I am going to go do my work now and think about how much rain and gloom equals pretty flowers and how much better a pretty sundress is than chocolate. I am really going to have to work on that last one!
