Did I mention I love EVERYTHING to do with the Beatles Yellow Submarine?

Have I mentioned to you before that I love everything to do with the Beatles' Yellow Submarine movie?  LOL

Anywho, going back a couple of month ago, my husband and I visited an adorable store in Cambridge, Ontario named NEXT TIME AROUND.   It was full of awesome items!!  In the back they had some items that had not been placed out in the main floor.   I had noticed a strange looking round piece with a square attached, it was sort of dirty, with maple keys and cobwebs, but as soon as I landed my eyes on it, I KNEW I had to have it.  I instantly knew what I was going to do with it. 

My plans was to paint it to resemble one of the Yellow Submarine's Portholes.  :)

Casey & Whitney wanted me to show it off to you before I started.

My grand plan was to paint it up and then somehow save up to purchase the following dolls:

Unfortunately, these dolls cost approx. $500.00 +  so it will take some time to do this.    I didn't want to have to wait until I could afford to buy these dolls, so in the mean time I came up with another plan.   My husband cute a small back to my "porthole" and I painted a scene from the Yellow Submarine.   George & Captain Fred with the Motor:

I think it came out pretty fantastic if I do say so myself.  :)

Thanks NEXT TIME AROUND for the awesome item you sold me!!!!  :)

Once I am able to save up enough money to purchase the dolls, I will show you what I will do with porthole.  :)
