Despite what WordPress has reported on my dashboard on the number of views my posts have had, and the number of followers to my blog….it’s probably safe to say that I’ll forever be mystified as to who reads my
stream of consciousness rantings postings.
Okay, time to get off the soap box and proceed with the post.
On the weekends, I have this awful habit of getting up early at 6:00 am. It doesn’t matter what time I went to bed – at 6:00 am, my eyelids fly open, I give out a HUGE yawn, and I need to roll out of bed. Staying in bed doesn’t make me fall asleep — if anything I probably drive poor BK crazy with my constant shifting around.
Anyways, once I’m up, I typically make my way downstairs to the dining room-turned-craft station and continue to work on making more stones and bricks. Also quickly becoming known as my 4th Circle in Hell (what can I say, I LOVE Dante’s Inferno). This morning, however, BK decided to come downstairs shortly after to make our morning coffee — and have the following conversation with me.
BK: Are you using those doors and windows on the house? (points at the CC)
Me: (measuring and cutting strips) I think so. Why?
BK: It doesn’t look right….I mean, wouldn’t they look weird once you put the stonework?
BK is referring to these windows and doors. I had originally bought these from the Real Good Toys website when I bought the CC.
When applied to the CC, they look like this. It doesn’t look bad right?
Conversation went back and forth for awhile. While BK didn’t exactly say that I’m being ridiculous (he knows if he pisses me off, he won’t be eating for a week. Because he knows who is the cook of our household), he thinks if the upper windows are more rectangular in shape, then so should the bottom windows and doors. It was kinda funny, now that I think about it — I mean, I have to give him credit for wanting to argue with someone who’s wielding a sharp X-Acto knife. And she ain’t afraid to cause some damage with it. 😛
So to appease him (and I really didn’t want to commit homicide before my morning coffee. Again, because I can be such a lazy-ass), we trooped back upstairs to my “storage of shame” and after fishing around my bins, I pulled out this combination.
I don’t remember who manufactured this (Alessio? Any ideas miniature fans?) — all I remembered is that I bought it from one of two miniature shops that’s within driving distance of my home. So we trooped back downstairs and I set it up against the CC.
The odd part? This is nice too. It’s more traditional looking, and it would be more classic against the masonry. As soon I get through the hell that is cutting and prepping the pieces and actually installing them.
What do you guys think? Which do you prefer? Be curious to hear what you think. I figured I’ll need to sit on it for awhile before I make decision. Also known as flipping a quarter and praying for the best.
