Somebody..........stop me!

That's it.  I have a lot of work to do and contractors to line up and I'm screwing around with the computer.    I haven't even opened the box of my new one yet.  I'm done playing for a while, at least until I make some progress on Lucy or the house.  Better both!  I'm putting all the paint and boxes away.  There's one set left and if it doesn't sell I will change the labels!  There may be another one also - if I don't hear anything by Wednesday, it will list again.
**************
Many of you emailed about the bat and I want to thank you for your concern, and post the outcome of the sad situation.  
  Unfortunately, he died by the time Mark got home.  He checked his nose and didn't see any white at all so I don't know what sent him out of hibernation.  He was the smallest we ever saw, only about 2 inches.  I wonder how many others in his colony are gone.   I wish they could hit on a remedy for this disease or the cause to prevent the decimation of a creature so necessary to the environment.
Hopefully I will have time tonight to check out all the blogs I'm missing.  My list has become so long that I can't even visit them all at one sitting!  Some iced tea, my bottle of Advil, and seeing how much others are accomplishing while I screw around with boxes, is on my agenda tonight.  Hope you've had a great weekend.
Thanks for visiting!

Oh wow! The new boxes are really nice! I love how they came out! You should stop doing them though if you're in pain. :( Sorry about the bat. It really is sad.

OH but the boxes are wonderful and they are in demand so it's good that you make them. They're beautiful.
I haven't heard of anything here making the bats sick. I hope not, you're right, they are very necessary. Have a great Monday.
Hugs,
Susan

The boxes look great!

Sorry about the bat. As much as I would have been totally freaked out, I hope that I would have tried to help him, too. Most likely I'd have called my husband and hidden inside. Sad but true. ahem...

Bertie said...

Yes Marly stop NOW lol! The boxes you show us now are so much wanted!! Take care though of your arm!!

Oh what a shame of the bat, they are wonderful creatures except when they are in the house, here they are a protected species and we look out for them all the time so they don't settle in the attic:))

Vickie said...

Those boxes are real neat. Aren't you talented?! What a tiny, little bat.

Sweet Sue said...

Wonderful boxes, but do take care ~ have a great week to come:)

Lanie said...

Oh Marly, I'm not sure you'll find anyone in this crowd encouraging you to stop making more boxes! Love them all but love, love, love these new ones!

Loraine said...

I am so sad to hear about the little bat. :( I was telling by kids about him today and they were very concerned. I hope that there weren't too many others that had the same fate. They are wonderful for the bugs and mosquito's.
Your boxes are wonderful. Don't ever stop making them!

Are the rectangular boxes for sale? If so, are they priced by the set or individually? I am definitely interested if you could email me any details. They are beautiful, and I always manage to miss the times you had them for sale.
Thanks,
Vanessa
