Updates and a Big Thank you!

First of all, big Big BIG thank you to everyone who is sticking with me and continuing to follow my blog!! It's been a long 8.5 months but I am now just a couple weeks away from my baby's due date!! I can't wait and I am super ready to get this show on the road.

I haven't had much new to show you as working on anything mini has been a slow go. Pregnancy Carpel Tunnel has limited the amount of things I can do with my hands. And somehow folding tiny clothes and all the other chores that have to be done have taken over.

However, I do have an update for you! I started working on the right wing addition to the mansion! It is the RGT addition that is specifically for the Alison Jr. I am finding that the more that is pre-done for me the better lol. This addition will house Morticia and Gomez's room on the top and the dining room on the bottom floor. You can see this goes along with my original plans located here.

There is more done on the bedroom than on the dining room right now, but I did start the dining room floor. I decided to do a rectangular pattern of wood planks. I have more to do and will post more on it later.

Here you can see a little bit more into the bedroom. I have yet to "age" it. I got most of the molding up. This is also the only room I have done carpet in. I wanted it to be a little more of an inviting room. Also I will be putting up several photos of the loving couple on the wall. It also contains the mirror that I found at an antique store which I am so excited it fits in the room.

Below I have made a new bed that is more appropriate to the small size of the room. I like it fairly well..... Not as much as I liked the first bed but it would never have fit!

I also put together two different Micheal's hutchs to create a large dresser for the couples clothing. Because of the limited space I made it tall instead of wide. I added some red paper into the openings to try and match the red on the bed.

Anyway, so that's what I have done. I wish it was more but I am happy at least that I something to show! I am hoping to get back to my Etsy store and my mini-mansion in a few months or so in the little moments I have to myself. I will of course also let you guys know when the little one arrives!

Thanks again for sticking with me. Oh yes, and I was very excited to find this as I was hobbling around an antique store the other day. It's a pin cushion but is the PERFECT size for the mansion. Seems like something the Addamses might have up in the attic or in a corner somewhere lol. It was only $2.50. Even better!

Much love to my fellow Bloggers! -ara
