More progress in spite of flood and pestilance...

It has been raining pretty good for the last three days here. Now for those of you following, or that know me, there are a some facts you know:
1) I live in the tropics.
2) The weather stays warm enough year round that it's okay to be outside.
3) My "workshop" is outside on a covered patio.

Here are some facts that I have just learned, and you need to:
1) My roof covering my patio leaks in several spots.
2) The tile that was used on my patio is as slippery as ice when it's wet.
3) The mosquitoes in the tropics are VICIOUS BAST@#&%*, VERY aggressive, and come out by the millions when it rains here.

Okay, now that you have that knowledge, you will understand that most everything I have done for the last couple of days, I have done INSIDE my house, and I have only been out at the dollhouse to do things that absolutely HAD to be done there, or to take pictures.... and even then, I was getting bitten so badly that I ran back inside and forgot to get one of the pictures I was going to take. Y'all will just have to live without the picture of the little round entry rug I made. I'll show it to you next time. The sun is setting right now and the mosquitoes are getting worse, and I am a coward!

Okay, all that being said, I do have some stuff to show you. These are all things I have been doing inside, but then ran out to put it all in place and take pictures.

We'll start with the main bathroom:

As you can see, I got the sea horse painted, hook put on, and door installed. I also got a medicine cabinet put up, the counter put in with sink, and just for fun, I have added a seashell "soap dish" and a nice fuzzy rug. It's not a finished bathroom, but it's an awesome start!

I also made a rug for the third bedroom...

We have kind of decided that this room will become a "teen" room, thus a great shag rug.

In the second bedroom, I painted the upper portion of the door, and although it's a lot better, I still think It needs mirror doors on the closet.

Don't y'all agree?

Well, I'm going to keep on hiding inside until the sun comes out.... maybe tomorrow? We'll see.
Until then...


  1. zomg i LOVE the vessel sink! is it polymer clay or something else?! too cute. the seahorse is awesome too, and the shells on the medicine cabinet. *dies from cuteness* you are so talented!

  2. Everything you've done is just so amazing! Incredible work.

    But yes - avoid the swarms of vicious mosquitos!
