Fun at the Duck

Another few days at the Duck .... and i didn't get was a good trip. LOL

I painted the dressing room/closet for my bedroom.  it is called Liquid Amber. The room is 8 x 15 and will have storage and shelving all around the room. there are French doors that open from the bedroom. This room faces the there is plenty of sun in the morning. i am in the process of adding some film to the windows to make it less warm.

I attached 2 more pieces of graffiti to the wall in the entryway. i can't seem to take a picture that is not shaky looking...sorry.

This is the left bottom....a tree with the sky showing. do you see the red and yellow plane in the sky? ... i say it is the farmer's crop duster .  haha ....and the lake. there is a dock...with a boy sitting on it....and a boat with a girl in it.  and lots of fish...and frogs...even an alligator.

Fish in the lake

Dock and boat

Boy on bench ... and boy leading horse....and some giant frogs. LOL

Crop duster in the sky...and a large bird

Land around the lake...see the turtle on the log?

The piece to the right of that is a continuation of the lake and part of the farm. pens with horses, pigs, sheep and flower beds. to the left of the horse pen is a boy leading a the left of that is a boy sitting on a bench..looking at the lake. i ran out of green things here so i put in a path with flowers around it.....several flower beds...and whatever else i had.

More fish....and a rowboat just waiting to be used

Some horses in a pen

This is quite the farm....there are horses, sheep, pigs, cows

Pigs. i love that i found little fence sections to make the pens for the animals

Sheep...and the dog guarding them.

Flower beds and the tractor

And i worked in the office....gluing more game pieces to the walls. i have run out of things to work with am on the hunt for more.  going up and down that ladder was just too much so i hauled in the scaffolding from the garage and set it up. it just about took up the whole room. but it is much easier to long as i don't whack myself in the head with the ceiling fan. i'm guessing i would only do that once. haha

I can climb up the ladder and step right onto the scaffolding. it is down one step from the i didn't need the safety sides. i stack up the milk crates...that you see under the scaffolding....and put what i am working on the top of them...close to hand.


I got a lot of stuff added to both sides of a corner. I added from the wooden blocks up on this side.

Yes, i realize the alphabet letters are backwards. but they are cutters to use with clay and i used the flatter side for more glue backwards. i'm figuring folks won't even notice in the scheme of things.

I even got my name in there you see it?

And around the chess set. I found a really cool set of alphabet blocks that stack like legos....but the W was missing. maybe that is why they got rid of them. i love yard sales. and i just had a mish-mash of letters and numbers that didn't match they went in the corner.

i found this really cool set of blocks...they look like dominoes or something. and there are those little 'sticks' that go with them. i have no idea what they are. my sister says mah jong you know? there was the tiniest set of dice, too. about 1/4" dice. 

But i got them all glued up there....whatever they are.

And i found the cutest set of foam puzzles at a yard sale and used them at the very top of the wall.

 They are about a foot square and just about fill across that wall.  i like the way they go together like a puzzle.

I am now working on adding a graffiti border to the top of the dressing room/closet area. stay tuned. LOL   such fun

Along with all that fun i did trim some tree branches and pull some weeds to make the lawn guys job a bit easier. and i am giving serious consideration to buying a refrigerator. just because i don't have a kitchen doesn't mean i can't have cold water... or tea....or ice cream. hahahahaha

You've made great progress! I think those tiles are mahjong tiles.
