Hi All
yes I am guilty, I have given in and brought all 3 books, I am talking about "Fifty Shades of Grey" halfway through the first book, I must admit I cannot put it down, stuttered a bit when my son asked what is it about, just said its a woman thing, romance and love, that put him off, so no fear he will pick it up, wonder what he would think of his mum if he did? They arrived yesterday morning, and I said just a quick look, then will have my shower and get on with my day,------------------------------------------------------------Dinner time, and I had to get really ruthless with myself, I still was not dressed and the washing up was still in the sink, so I am Guilty of enjoying it.

After I dragged myself away, I finally got myself in gear and went to do my weekly bargain hunt, I got some lovely material, not sure yet what I will do with it, so its joined my stash, some flowers, and I must think before I speak, I know everyone does not understand miniatures, but in my mind they do, I found this fantastic bone necklace, I said, " oh how lovely, they will look good in my body box, but will have to bloody them up" got a very strange look from the

 man who was serving me, and as I went to leave the shop, this lady came up and said, " sorry to listen in to your conversation, but what did you mean?" I did explain about minis, the look of relief was priceless.

Did manage to do a bit to Franks Place, wallpapered the walls and laid the floor, have popped a picture on for you to see, bit boring really, I also finished off some of the equipment, I now can start to put it all together, I have also decided to place the room box on a board, as I want a cemetery scene as well, well he needs somewhere to get his body parts from, maybe when this is done I had better put a warning on before anyone looks at it.
Thought i would show you the miniature that sparked off this project, I got it some time ago and it just sat in my stash till I made up my mind what I would do with it.

Enough babbling, here are the photos

I used wall paper and then rubbed in black and grey to hopefully give it a worn look
