But today, I am feeling much better. I am hoping to be completely back to normal by the weekend but the garden won't wait that long...
I spent some time in the yard while the chickens got some time to roam this evening. The ladies thought I should have come prepared with a treat.
I hope you've had a wonderful day, wherever you are!

I'm working extra hours at school this week so I'm not making any progress on the French country house. I'm leaving it in the living room on a card table, though, so any time I have a free period of time I can do something. Updates will be coming!
Have a wonderful day and/or evening, wherever you are!

Update: I adjusted the pleats and gathers and added a piece of paper doily as the centerpiece on the canopy frame. I like the little added touches. The bedroom is beginning to look like I had hoped it would. It needs accessorizing but it already looks cozy and romantic. :-)

Usually when I work on a doll house project, by the time I've started I know how I want both the interior and the exterior to look. I had no trouble envisioning a French country look for the interior of this house but I'm just not sure what I want to do with the exterior. The previous owner had purchased a lot of the plastic "wrought iron" railing so I plan to use that on the balconies. But where is this house located? I thought of New Orleans as a possibility but I'm not completely sold on that idea. What do you all think? Here's the box photo so to give you a better idea of the style. All opinions will be considered. Whoever has the idea that speaks to me will get some sort of a prize - yet to be determined. Good luck!
