House Work in Miniature

Last night the Historical Society hosted a dinner with a presentation from a famous (at least around here) photographer who specializes in Southern houses and towns. He showed us a slide show of his work, and now I'm on the prowl for interesting photo opportunities around the house. Our walls need some art.

It's not exactly art, but here's Darwin in his usual position - talking on the cell phone by the kitchen window, which is the only place in the house that has decent service.



Today we've been working on my doll house. I'm thrilled because it has been about a year since we last worked on it. The workshop at our former house was deadly hot and mosquito-infested in the summer, so we stopped all progress last June. But our workshop at this house has a window air conditioner! Hurray! It is so much nicer slaving away on the dollhouse in a controlled climate. :)

Darwin worked on the electricity and got most of the first floor finished. I started shingling the roof with cedar shakes.

You can see on Darwin's face how excited he is about his work:

You do realize that you have posted a picture of a full grown heterosexual man playing with a dolls house for the whole world to see! More importantly he is YOUR man and he may get teased if his friends see this.
I sure hope he doesn't get caught speeding again because if someone in the Alabama penetentary reads your blog they're gonna want Darwin for their wife! Hey, now there's a REALLY GOOD reason not to be caught speeding again.

Hee hee, you have a point there, Gary. :) I must admit Darwin works on the dollhouse only to keep me from pouting excessively.
