(And the Sun Came to Play.......)
Have I mentioned, Dear Readers, how much I Love it when the Sun comes to Play in my Little Worlds? Even when they are situated far away from the windows of my RL house, so the sunbeams have to stretch and reach way into the distant corners.... and there they are for the briefest moments before they have moved on, illuminating the Tiny Worlds in a way that is impossible to copy with artifice! There were a few such moments on Sunday morning, making me pause Life in order to capture the moments with my camera! And here I can share them with you.....
Alas these moments are so brief,
If you are not there with the camera,
they are gone before you blink!
And in the Willowcrest too,
the sun filled the Parlor with radiance.....
Don't you just love the way this delicate lace is silhouetted by the sun?
And the way the sun shone into the bedroom,
casting a pattern on the floor!
I know you can't see it from here with the curtains closed,
but these are the very windows
that are causing me such trouble on the exterior!
Fortunately, I have thought of a workable solution to the problem.
But first I made a List, Dear Readers,
of all the things I needed to do on this house
before I could glue all the walls in place....
and it was longer than I had thought it would be!
There were ten major categories of tasks to do!
Everything from planning the attic lights wiring routes
to completing the painted details on the bedroom walls,
to finishing the trees in the Parlor,
to fixing the curtain rods
to completing the window frames details......
to mention just the most obvious ones!
Yes, it is a good thing I have NOT yet glued the walls in place!
Meanwhile, I have tested an idea for the exterior window muntins.
You might recall that I was bothered by the idea that from the outside
the muntin on the lower half of the windows
would abut directly onto the exterior window sill....
(See previous post for reference pictures!)
I found some very thin and narrow coffee stirrer sticks
to use as the framing material.
Above you can see the lower edge of the "window frames"
being tested on the windows.
I think they succeed in making the windows
look more realistic from the outside.
But you can see here what it looks like from the inside!
Here you can see a little closer......
(Sorry it is so dark.... it is night and it is hard to get
close enough and not block all the light!)
So you can see I am going to have to add
small pieces to the inside window frame too.
And I think it will work if I conceal the "crack" between them
and the outer frame by adding a little window sill as well!
(At least I hope it will look okay... and the curtains will conceal it too!)
And here you can see the exterior with the thin muntins in place....
At least it Fosters the illusion that the lower window
is set back and can slide past the upper window when raised...
entirely an illusion, of course, as these are non operative windows!
I think it looks So much better with the bottom edge
of the window frame visible!
And believe it or not, Dear Readers, that is the Only thing
I got done this week in my Mini worlds!
That and Making the List!
So at least now I know what I need to be doing...
Besides capturing the Brief sunny moments, that is!
(I do Really Love it when the Sun comes to Play!)
Oh look! There's that little fairy again.....
I wonder where he is off to now?
