Accessories of travels and deflection....

This year has been a hard one on my little family.... James lost his dad less than a month ago and the punches just keep on rolling in since then... I have found it hard to get time to work on my house, both mini and big, and my grand plans with MJ have fallen through several times due to one thing or another... So when I got the chance to work in the studio today, I jumped on it, and a lot of things happened.

For starters, I got my HBS order the other day so I got to finish the sink first thing.

Love this "paint-it-yourself" clear stuff!

 I scratch built the sink out of odds and ends... the legs are shortened stair posts that I turned upside down... I saw this really great sink in a magazine and the image stuck with me... The legs were more of a round chunky, but hey, you work with what you have some times. :)

I forgot to cut the sink whole in my earnest to make the structure, so I had to do it after... what a pain!

I sanded the whole thing really well and then painted, and sanded and painted and sanded, and painted and sanded and then coated with Triple Thick.

And then I accessorized.  The bathroom...      .....remember to click on the pictures to make them bigger and see more!!!

Tall white vase from HBS, pink glass from HBS, minis in basket are from a swap...from Italy (I will remeber person eventually), fern from Jane S)
 It was so nice to put homeless minis in a home!
Too cute!
 I should have edited photos, but I'm tired and have a lot going on.... Tough.  ;)

Faucet set from HBS, glasses from HBS, toothbrush from random stock, soap dish from random stock

Somebody! Quick!  Shrink me for a bubble bath and wine!!!!
I love the table.  Love love love.  L. O. V. E.

Vase is actually a pitcher that I took the handle off of.  Doily is from HBS and I dabbed some purple paint on it. :)

TA-DAAAAAAA!!!!  I want to live in this bathroom and it isn't even done yet.
 ...and the bedroom.....
Print outs from the interwebs, and the postcards are actually from Italy! Eeep!

Mardi gras masks from Jane, box from Italy, scooter from Italy, fan bottle from Dales Dreams, Dog from Monopoly. :D  Aussie flag from Jazzi!

Poster from Italy and perfume set from Dales Dreams

Lamp from Brae.  :)

PEA!  I found this at a garage sale!  Ornament score!!!

I love the wood stain on the doors in this room.  :)  And the froggy in the hallway.

 ...and the hallway....

I love how the house is coming together so far.  And how the attic is acting as my actual storage space.  HA!

 And while did this MJ was had at work on this:
