So, I don't want to look back -- 2016 was a rough year for a lot of people -- so I decided to look forward and preview some of what I'll be doing in 2017!
Besides the customer houses (have 2 in right now that I'm working on the electrical), I will be wrapping up my bread box by creating a bread rack...
|Chalking up my breads|
|So happy with my loaves|
|And with my croissants|
And Opie (my BJD Pukipuki doll I got from my friend, Wendy) is getting her house this year! Well, the outer shell of it anyway -- I have such plans for this house that it will probably take me over a year to get it to be at a point where it can be on display.
|Dad cut the base wood for Opie's House!|
I will be tackling the Mansion (always working on the Mansion)! Rumor has it that Dad has the addition base almost ready which means huge steps will be taken this winter on finishing the exterior of the house!
I hope to finish my 1795 Kitchen and to get my 1895 kitchen underway. My in-laws gave me some cash for Christmas which I used to purchase this slightly moldy and neglected roombox which needs a back wall but will be perfect for a little Early Victorian Kitchen to complete my Kitchen Series roomboxes (1929 kitchen, 1964 kitchen, Brief Touch on 2010 Kitchen, 1795 Kitchen and Start of 1795 Kitchen).
|This will make a cute kitchen!|
And I really hope to complete the Shark Tank (Birithmas Gifts to Finish Up) in time for the next Green Spring Gardens Holiday Open House in December 2017.
My Hunting Cabin is very close to being "Display-able". I mostly want to put it on a board and put landscaping around it...
|Haven't touched this one since 2014! It needs a bit of attention for it's debut!|
|Interior is mostly finished: just needs some final touches and accessories.|
So, here's to 2017! May it be a wonderful, lovable, productive, healthy year!
