Home for Solly (Part 3)

Hello dear readers All my plans for working on Solly's home were postponed. I had to tidy and clear my work surfaces, (Kitchen table, Dining table, even kitchen counter) to allow room for family celebration of my birthday and our Pentecost Holiday. Now the surfaces are tidy but the work is slower as it takes time to find the necessary items that were close at reach before. The floors are from cardboard. They need a coat or more of Mod Podge before being glued on.
Alas, this home is somewhat small for my dear Solly, but Solly is satisfied and prefers sitting on a cushion, Japanese style. I made a table and fireplace from bits and pieces. I'm not sure about their final color, Light green or beige. Any suggestion will be welcome.
Besides a huge quantity of chocolates, I received some very precious gifts. The first from Rosa Maria http://contrastes-rosamaria.blogspot.com/ A little parcel, beautifully packed with treasures. The photo cannot show exactly how exquisite this precious piece of lacework is. The threads are featherly light like spider webs and the tiny bobbins are a marvel. THANK YOU DEAR ROSA MARIA FOR THESE PRECIOUS GIFTS AND MOST OF ALL FOR YOUR FRIENDSHIP.
From my two darling daughters I received this electrical organ. First I had to get used to playing on a narrow 5 octave instrument. My right and left hands collided on several points. After a few days of practice it's no longer a problem. I can play by ear any melody I know. My fingers are no longer as agile as they used to be when I was young and played classical music on my piano (sold 70 years ago and was the downpayment of our first home). Pop music is all I can play now.
I wish you all my dear readers, a pleasant weekend with blessings.
