New Followers & Garden Shed Progress

Wow, people are interested, I have 13 more followers today. Thank you for taking an interest.

Welcome to

Also welcome to Janne and a second Michelle, I can't see a blog, but if you have one just email me and I will put a link on my site. I am so new at this so I may have missed your link. My apologies if I did so.

I've been peeping at everyone's site. I have a lot of reading to do, it's so exciting. I love watching the progress of other's on their miniature projects as well. It's what inspired me to start my blog initially.

It's so interesting to read everyone's profiles. The internet makes the world so small. Here I am in Newfoundland, Canada and I have readers from so many different parts of the world. In my city I only have one other lady who shares this mini hobby with me, so it's so nice to find other interested people through the internet.

So today it was a work day, so I wasn't able to accomplish a lot on the shed, but I was able to tape everything together and get a better perspective on my progress. I am really pleased with the results. I used ready made cedar shingles versus cutting my own like the plans had suggested. So the wood is a darker colour. Both the beadboard and the shingles are to be washed in the same colour, I hope they turn out similar. I am a little concerned about my floor. If you notice in the picture from yesterday's post, there is a streak in the lower edge on the flooring, and each day it seems to grow more pronounced. I don't want to re-stain it, because it's a bit too dark already, I am hoping once everything is in place it won't be as noticeable. I could turn the piece around and put it in the back of the shed. Does anyone have any suggestions? It's not so noticeable in the picture below, but it's really noticeable in yesterday's posting.

I was so excited to see the taped together progress, that I felt I should investigate if I had enough items to fill it besides the potting table I had made. I filled an entire drawer with accessories suitable for a garden shed. Some items have to be "dirtied up" to fit in, but I think I have lots to start.

I am pleased with the progress so far!
