Our Cardboard Chums Have Moved In With Us

Dear George,
Our house is still a disaster zone from the burst pipe and flooding in late April.  The construction people moved everything out of our living room and dining room in preparation for renovation, so it’s sort of like occupying a barren warehouse.  It got so gloomy that I decided to populate the first floor with some friendly people and their pets.  Some cardboard boxes from Ace Hardware, felt markers, a box cutter, a roll of masking tape, and — voila — we have a gaggle of visitors who have moved in to cheer us up.  Though sympathetic to our damage, they are looking reasonably cheerful despite it all. 

P.S. When our 7-year-old granddaughter V came to town, she decided that we needed more animals, so she made a turtle, two goldfish in their bowls, and a snake in the grass.  Here they are.  


  1. These are really cool. What a great idea!

    1. Thanks, Mary. This was a fun project. I don't know where these people will reside once we get our furniture back.
