All the G.I. Joe's

Happy October Everyone!

I've been very busy this month, my Father in law passed away and Lilly was diagnosed with heart worm disease..the woman at the vets office wasnt sure that I would keep her and follow the heart worm disease regime but I assured her that I was up to the task. 

Every day she gets two doses of medicine and every month I give her one heart worm chew then she needs to go to the vets for a shot in her spine and they keep her overnight. I browsed the web for the proceedure and was shocked at what I found.  but the nice lady at the vet assured me that it wouldnt be as bad as the web described it plus Lilly is a very young dog.

so that's what Ive been up too, I worked on a G.I joe coffee shop (cause I need to get rid of some dolls I have two christmas boxes full and I really need to cut down on my hoard)  here are the photos

I made the chairs out of wire and the tables are card stock, the building is a box that I covered with paper.  I watched a video on youtube on how to do's pretty next one will probbly be an office or barrack for the G.I. joes (did I mention that I have a lot of dolls?)  when I dive into something I go deep. I'll probably wind up doing something for the Barbies...they need something to liven up their area.  (plus if you just put up some dolls people just cruise on by without looking (but their kids do they spend a lot of time in the toy room)

so thats about it for now..I'll show you how it looks with the G.I. Joe's and that line in the title is from a Stephen King Movie..the book was good but the movie was terrible.
I couldnt watch the Tv show either  but feel free to check out the Tommyknockers yourself
Happy Halloween!

Marisa :)


  1. Sorry about your father in law
    I hope your dog gets better
    your coffee 'shop is original and pretty

  2. A really creative solution for displaying your G.I. Joe collections. The coffee shop looks very rustic with lots of atmosphere.
    Sorry to learn about your puppy's heart worm disease, but good for you on not giving up on her, Marisa, and I hope that she will GET WELL SOON! :))


  3. Sorry to hear you've had such bad news but I want to send you a huge hug for being an angel and looking after Lilly.
    Love your GI coffee shop =0)

  4. I'm very sad to hear about your bad news... my best wishes to you and your family after this loss... and of course best wishes for a recovery of your doggie. Let's hope she's a big fighter... and your love will help her, I'm convinced of that. - What a great idea to make scenes for the G.I. Joes - and this café turned out awesome. I'm looking forward to seeing the guys in there.


  5. Happy Halloween, (despite of everything)!

  6. My condolences on your Father-in-Law's passing. And poor Lilly! I'm so glad she has you. All my best wishes to her. The cafe is outstanding! I loved GI Joe when I was little. I used to steal him from my brother so he could be my Barbie's husband. My brother never knew about GI Joe's secret life. LOL!
    hugs and kisses to all of you!

  7. Dear Marisa,
    I am so sorry for your loss. I know you heart must be very heavy.
    I know you will take very good care of Lilly, I wish her a complete recovery.
    Thank you so much for your visit and kind words.
    You did a great job on your GI Joe's Coffe shop!
    Wishing you a peaceful weekend.
