2. doil - i - fy - ing

3. doil - i - fi - er
example: "have you been up to much lately Tif?" to which Tif replies "well since you ask, i have been using a lot of doilies for customizing my 'linen lovelies' that hang at mossy shed. it would be true to say dear friends that one could call me a doilifier"
she's thinking it all sounds a bit dodgy ~ Tif

used dog, our #2 and myself were all togged up and about to head out for a walk when someone must have heard my silent prayers because low and behold a snowplow was doing his thing on the hill...i had no plans to show you more snow pictures and i am sure this will become very 'old' before long but i just couldn't help but bring my camera along on our little 'wanderings'...be sure to look closely at picture number three...

let me set the scene for you dear readers...when you enter mossy shed by the front door you are left with the choice of turning right to the family/dinning area, go down the corridor past the 'loo' to the kitchen/nook or you can turn left...if you choose to turn left then you are choosing to enter my 'space'...the studio has been made out of a living area that you can walk through and end up in the kitchen...now normally people would put a tv in here and a couple of couches and say "done" and i do believe my man had thought this, but not me.
when i first entered 'the shed' way back, i knew that this space would be an ideal 'studio'...at that time it had 'peach' colored walls and a red brick fireplace, but with my 'rose colored' spectacles' on i saw white walls, a white brick fireplace and some 'orla goodness' (thanks for that term, maggi)...
here's a bigger pic for you that i took from the kitchen, light isn't brilliant but i think it gives you the idea, plus used dog wouldn't stay still and look lovely but insisted on walking too and fro...the 'blue tape' at the window is trying to assist me with my decision making for 'window replacing'....
Mabel has a space by the fireplace (quick, put on your 'spectacles' and think 'stove' and not 'brass and brown' when looking at fireplace)...
