I would like to start this post by saying to those of you who thought I was being a grumpy old cow about the jam, I relented. I don't stay irritated for long, and took her a jar.
Any way, the spare bedroom has a weird Nook. It is actually where the front window for the old cottage used to be. This used to look out to the lake side.
The previous owners added a room behind it and covered the one side with hideous plastic panelling and a piece of scrap plywood here.
I painted it white and added some Bits...........I hung a little mobile made from old Dinky cars I bought from an old man who makes them with a pop can tab to hang it from, but it was still looking a bit blah.
I had an idea to hang wallpaper in it, but my rule here is to re-use and re-cycle, not buy new, especially something frivolous like wallpaper.
Then I remembered the marina office had maps for visitors....I could just stroll there in my painting clothes and pink Crocs without anyone seeing me and pick one up. I asked the Harbormaster for one and maybe because of my attire or un-diffused hair, he didn't recognise me (we have dealt with him many times) and he proceeded to point out where we were on the map as if I was some kind of deranged lost child...............................no jam for him:)
Now, I hate to cut a straight line, so I was thrilled that this map fit exactly with no cutting.....1/8 inch each side all around left......perfect....
Now if I wanted to be trendy, I could take the pins out of my voo-doo dolls and place them on the map showing all the places I have been around here............
