Well it’s been a long time since my last post. I knew that Christmas would make it pretty much impossible for me to do any work on the mini house or the blog, and sure enough, I was just too busy spoiling my family, LOL!

We had a wonderful Christmas except that was the day I got a really nasty flu. I was able to get through Christmas dinner but then I was seriously ill for the next week and not doing that great for the one after that. So instead of using all my lovely holidays off work for oil painting and working on my mini house, I could do nothing but sleep, watch TV or read.

So today was the first day I have been able to work on my mini house. I also got some good progress on my landscape painting as well, so it was a good day.

I’m still working on the refrigerator. Here’s a picture of the progress so far – structure is basically done but needs to be painted and the doors glued on:

The rubber bands are there to hold on the doors in the right place. Once I’ve painted the fridge I will glue on the doors – it won’t be an openable item, though I could do that if I wanted. There’s no need to do this for my purposes, however.

I also got some great Christmas presents for my mini house:

These are going to be vessel sinks in my mini house bathroom. This is the Etsy site for the vendor: https://www.etsy.com/shop/CrystalRiverGems?ref=l2-shopheader-name

This is a darling tiny feather duster:

So I’m pretty happy with my haul!

Happy New Year!
