[ Sto Lat! Sto Lat! ]
Okay, a nice quick post to say “Happy Birthday” to my sister-in-law, Natalia.
[ Gah, it may not be the best paint job, but at least it's better in full size. ]
The fellow above first featured on Shelmertime.com some time ago, when I posted this. For reasons unknown to me, Natalia seems to have taken a shine to this little guy – as evidenced by numerous requests for an update on his progress.
Well, let’s see:
1) Lick of paint -check
2) Mini wooden floorboards – check.
(I’m deciding whether to paint / stain them)
3) Tiny lantern – check.
4) Stone wall – check.
5) Mechanical background contraption – mostly done.
6) Putting it all together – uh, tune in next time…
Anyhow, Natalia, I’m happy to dedicate this particular project to you, as thanks for your support. All I ask in exchange is that you to pick a suitable name for him.
Update: I’m informed that we’ll be going with Cornelius or Dimitry. We’ll see which he prefers…
