The painters arrive tomorrow to finish the great house painting project. They will be painting my office, the DH’s office, and my studio. I am working out of a little rolling cart on the kitchen counter. Severely limited in terms of materials and tools. The House of Mythical Creatures is on hold for the week. It’s […]

It has arrived. On, of course, one of my busy must-be-out-of-the-house-by-10 days. So it languished on the front porch for 6 hours… I’ll save you the unboxing post.
