Surf's up and parts gettng reconnected

Dick Dale in the cd player-- Jessie, Jessie, Jessie Pearl!

Jessie Pearl ?

Putting the living room back together after the big floor project, and liking the results. Trouble is, as always, I have too much stuff!  Found these china doll parts in a button box. Miss Jessie Pearl seems a tad kinky for a gal at least a hundred years old.

Feels so good to reassemble and even re-imagine my space. Treated myself to a $19.99 area rug at IKEA. I've got the DIY bug bad now, and can't wait to rip the carpet out of the dining area.

Played a couple classic movies while I moved furniture and hung pictures.  Didn't give them my full attention, but they added to the mid-century vibe. Glad my library is getting classic movies on dvd like The Day of the Jackal and The Thomas Crown Affair.

What a lovely space! The floor looks like the perfect place to lie down on a broiling day. Where are your paintings? What's in the upper window on the left?

I am not a robot.

I know you are not a robot, Mary! I am still working onb the paintings. Between Steven's art and mine, it's an overload. At least I got all my traveling worm show supplies stored back under the stairs. The worms themselves still live in the laundry room.

The space looks fabulous. (The doll in parts scares me.)

I agree, Kathleen. China dolls have always given me the creeps. It this one was assembled it would be about 6" tall.
