Detour to the Green Elephant

Okay, so I should be dealing with Devika's plants. But I discovered I can water them through the door. They're fine, so I have time to keep looking for my machete.

 Instead, I've been working at Norm's on this dollhouse.

 This is a Christmas project for a really nice lady named Marilyn. It's going to be awesome.

We've got a ways to go, and it doesn't look like much yet. But it's about to get exciting. 

 First, you have to gesso EVERYTHING. If it's getting painted it's getting primered. Yes, it's boring and it's a pain in the neck, but it gives you such a smooth paint job it's totally worth it.

And now that everything is primed, the painting can begin! And that's the exciting part! Though, also in the "exciting" category...

The Green Elephant Thrift and Consignment shop is DONE! And I'm moving in. Just temporarily. So this is the kitchen. Cozy, huh?

It only took two years (We of Wylde Kingdom Construction may not be fast, but we ARE awesome. It'll be great when it's done. Whenever that is.) And not only did the building itself get finished...

But I found Thorne's stock in storage, and dragged it all out. I set up shop!

I tried to make it a place that _I_ would want to wander around and shop in. I hope Thorne would approve, and I guess in April I get to find out.

 And upstairs is all finished up too, and furnished and everything.

Me and the bunny have already moved in. I want to test it for creepy noises, and just make sure it's cozy and a nice living space before anyone officially moves in. I'm going to do this for all the buildings I build/inspect. I know. I'm a gem.

Also, I have a neighbor who is really into holidays. He's got his yard all set up for Thanksgiving, which is coming up FAST! Kind of cool. I can't wait to see what he does for Christmas.

So, there's what I've been doing instead of hacking away at plants. That's next. Probably. Maybe. We'll see.

If I don't talk to you before, if you celebrate Thanksgiving, I hope it's a great one! Now back to that construction project at Norm's.

Oh man... only 28 days to go! I gotta get building!

Talk to you soon!

  1. Yes dear, you are a gem! :-) Thank you for putting a big smile on my face! Your new temporary dwelling looks awesome. Must be a bit ghostly though with everyone gone. And the building project is in good hands, I am sure. Love the hard hat :-)

  2. Oh, wow! I love what you've done with the Green Elephant, both upstairs and down. It looks like such a fun shop to browse in, Miri! xo Jennifer

  3. The shop looks spectacular! I think I could wander around in there just looking for quite soem time.... :D

  4. Happy Thanksgiving, Miss Miranda. I hope it was very nice.

    The Green Elephant looks wonderful. You did a very good job on it.

    Sincerely Yours


  5. Hey Veronique! Thank you! I like living at the Green Elephant. It is a little lonely here, being the only pixie left. But I do my best. And thanks. I love my hard hat! Safety first!

    Hi Jennifer! Thank you! It's been a lot of fun, and I think it WOULD be a fun shop to browse around in! I hope so. Hopefully Thorne will like it when he gets back.
