the ceiling is painted, the first bedroom "cut in", and base boards will be primed and painted later today… ahhhhhh, progress!

so, i walked over to get coffee this morning, and noticed a red dot next to the listing corkscrews on the gallery wall! a sale! ! !

on another corkscrew note, i was talking to one of the women at the gallery and she explained that one of the visitors came in and pointed at the dutch picnic that i brought for display (aka that horsey thing) and said she had a very similar one at home–i wonder if she would like to part with it…? we shall see!

Also, I was offered a hagenauer golfer (pictured below), but it comes with a healthy asking price. Or, is it an unhealthy price? Eitherway,with negotiations underway, it will probably find its way into the collection…
