More Stuff

Hello, Dear Ones. I know it's been over a week since I've posted anything but we've been sick over here so just to fore warn you, this is a long post! Mr. Precious served for three weeks as a juror and there were sick ones who gave their bug to him and since he loves me so much - he gave it to me! So...I've been trying to get well and rest. I don't do well trying to rest. I couldn't rest in bed so I sat in my chair in the den. Well, I can't just sit and do nothing so I made things for the doll house.
Come on and I'll show you...
 Little jugs or should I say little pitchers. I found the pattern on Pinterest, of course, and just couldn't stop making them!
 As you can see, Lola is so very pleased with all of the little pitchers and is deciding what to do with all of them. She got a new hairdo and is feeling pretty self confident and I see she's already put a couple on top of the little hutch and on the baby's high chair.
 I found out a little genealogy on Lola. I was thinking I needed to make her some shoes and just happened to look at her little bottom and there was a name embossed on it 'Chelsea'. So on line I went and found out Lola (Chelsea) is actually Barbie's little sister. Lola was so excited to know she has such a famous sister and said she will have Barbie come visit after she gets her house ready.
 There's more jugs, em, pitchers. I made some from scrapbook paper and others from printed cardstock. The paper is just too flimsy and probably won't hold up but I persisted any way. The cardstock jugs seem pretty fine. I painted the inside of the spout and then painted a gloss finish on each one. Aren't they the cutest little things?
The kitchen window got installed (just glued on the wall) and I made a little valance for it.
 Then...I made some new canisters to match the kitchen. I used the little wooden spools again, painted the bottom lip and top lip, covered them with the same paper as the kitchen walls and added little labels and a pretty little bead on top! Cuteness again!
 I couldn't stop there so I made a bread box too! I made it out of mat board. The lid doesn't lift up but we're not tellin' any one! ;)
 Here they all sit on the corner cabinet. I see Lola added another jug!
 The kitchen got some lights! I snapped these pictures at night so they are not as nice as they should be but I wanted to show you my ceiling lights. These are little touch lights from the dollar store. I just added batteries and stuck em up on the ceiling. Voila! I have to admit I just love the size of this kitchen! I have to watch out for Lola as she wants to display everything she has all at once.
Then...I know...I grabbed my crochet thread and hook and made a rug. I really didn't make it for the kitchen since there is no red in it, but pink. Lola said she didn't care because it was nice to have a warm rug to poke her little tooties on when she sits at the table.
 Next I crocheted a rug for the living room! I bought a new coffee and end table before I was on my death bed...well, my sick chair.
 Got all smarty pants and painted a little vase for flowers. It's one of those wooden pulls for fans. I know, I got carried away painting with my toothpick! :)
 Then I made another rug! I was on a roll y'all! I was sick but I was on a roll.
Just a simple blue granny square in the round rug edged in cream. I plan on making some curtains with some blue in the fabric - one of these days - maybe when I get sick again! :)
 Pictures were hung in the dining room. They're just printed out on cardstock and glued onto foam board and the frames are bent a little. I did dry brush a little gold paint onto the frames.
 I love the little flowers flanking the china cabinet. I hang the pictures up with that tacky glue stuff so I can take them down if I want to change them. I'm so talented like that you know! :)
 Lord, have mercy, y'all I'm a little bit crazy! I thought I would crochet a little doily using an itsy bitsy teeny weeny yellow polka dot bikini, um, no crochet hook and sewing thread. Yes, that's what I said - sewing thread. I've seen some on Pinterest and they were just so cute. I'm just stubborn enough to say, 'Hey, I can do that!' Well, I did it, but not very well I'll add and I probably won't make another doily out of thread. Heck, y'all, it was hard! You can see where I messed up but I went ahead and starched the heck out of it with hair spray
I threw that spool of thread away and grabbed some crochet thread and made a little runner for the sideboard. Now that was more up my alley!
I made one more little doily and poked it on the piano. Well, you'd think I'd be worn out wouldn't you? I guess sickness becomes me! :)  We're getting well now but kinda weak but as long as I can move my hands I'm good. Thanks for popping in to see me.

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

Time Is On My Side

 Time is on my side, yes it is.

Time is on my side, yes it is.
Now you all were saying that you want to be free
But you'll come runnin' back (I said you would baby),
You'll come runnin' back (like I told you so many times before),
You'll come runnin' back to me.
Time is on my side, yes it is.
Time is on my side, yes it is.
You're searching for good times but just wait and see,
You'll come runnin' back (I said you would darling),
You'll come runnin back (Spent the rest of life with ya baby),
You'll come runnin' back to me.
Go ahead baby, go ahead, go ahead and light up the town!
And baby, do anything your heart desires
Remember, I'll always be around.
And I know, I know like I told you so many times before
You're gonna come back,
Yeah you're going to come back baby
Knockin', knockin' right on my door.
Time is on my side, yes it is.
Time is on my side, yes it is.
'Cause I got the real love, the kind that you need.
You'll come runnin' back (I knew you would one day),
You'll come runnin' back (Baby I told you before),
You'll come runnin' back to me.
