Angelsdoll Evan

His Royal Hotness here is the result of my trading the Vinyl Udell to Alewife, for this guy. Alewife said she didn't pay as much as I think she did for him, so I feel only..a little..guilty--but I am so thrilled to have him! He's a remarkably compliant poser--I do need to order eyes that fit him (these are the oval flatbacks that Denver Doll sells, and they really are not right, but I do like the color with the tan skin. And amazingly, he is wearing pants, though they are stolen from someone else:

He possibly needs a shirt :D And that is the floor that it has taken me hours to lay--not that the vinyl is that hard to put down, but the floor under it has lots of holes and bumps that needed to be filled or sanded down, so it takes forever. But I do like it! I just hope it holds up to snow and mud. Here it is just before the cat threw up on it. (Why, Stripey?) It cleaned up fine, though!

  1. I like your new tile. The tile you are covering, we once had in our kitchen. It must have been popular in the 80's?

    1. I think you are spot on for the date--this house had a lot of work done in the 80s--mirrors all over, and the basement tile is equally funky. If it had been in good shape I would have kept it--it was high quality linoleum at the time, but the previous owner was a smoker and that ruined the floor (melted it in spots). And thank you! Laying that stuff on a new clean subfloor is fast and easy; but not so much if you have to fill holes as you go!

  2. Are you using chalk lines to keep the pattern straight? I put down tile years ago but it was in straight lines - could not have kept them straight but for the blue chalk lines. I see no chalk lines and your pattern looks very straight. If you are working without chalk lines - I am so impressed.
