Charles and Faith and their son, Noah, live in the San Franciscan. Faith is British and her father worked for the British government in India, so that's where she grew up. That's inspired a lot of the decor in the house. (Please excuse the bubbles in the wallpaper and tile in the kitchen. It's still drying.) I need to make a window shade and add the rest of the accessories but this room is mostly finished.
The turret room will be Noah's bedroom. I have a little Noah's Ark quilt that Mercedes made for me that will be perfect for his bed. The walls will be a blue print but I'm not sure what I'm doing with the floor in here.
The master bedroom has a definite Indian influence. Obviously, the furniture needs a lot of work to "go" with the decor. The quilt on the floor will go on the bed. The colors are a perfect match and it has tiny flowers just like what's on the wallpaper.
The parlor is another Indian inspired room. I love the bay with the red. I need a fireplace, sofa, and at least one chair in here. A table or two would be good, too. There has to be somewhere to serve tea.
I love the study. It's very masculine and I think Charles will be very happy here. Charles has done some traveling (before he met Faith) and he will display a few artifacts from his travels in here.
I'm still debating about the bathroom decor but the tub was made from a Philadelphia white chocolate cream cheese container. I used a cup hook for the faucet with bead handles. I stacked 3 beads per foot to give a claw foot look to the bottom of the tub. It turned out amazingly well.
Tomorrow I hope to get to the other two rooms. Stay tuned!
I've been happily married for 33 years to my high school sweetheart and we have three great kids. All are young adults. I'm currently working part time as an instructional assistant at the local elementary school. My mini life is especially important to me because it takes me away (better than a bubble bath!) from the stresses of real life. I've been involved with mini-ing since the late 1980s with a break for about 10 years while my children were young.
My faith and my family are very important to me. I am so thankful that God blessed me with the gift of creativity!
