Finally something done...

Hello guys and dolls

Another long time since you last heard from me. But I have been very busy. No...no miniatures but my own house needed some tlc. Bought new doors wich still need some paint. Cleaned up the addic and a bedroom. Place a new floor, wallpaper and painted a cabinet wich I had bought on the internet.

So you see....I had no desire to make miniatures. But I made some anyway. Meet Ms.Amalia Hornblower. She is Mr. Peter Pendleton's housekeeper. She's going to keep the house nice and tidy and prepares meals for Mr. Pendleton and his guests.



Further I made some friends for little Bear. His house is never crowded enough. (still need to finish the garden) It's a little shy ducky and a ladyrabbit.

Another little bear

This morning I went to Klara. We've been very busy with some little critters. Klara finished her rabbit and I finished my bear that I started to make a really long time a go but never was finished.
I don't like it that much but it is my first little bear so I will cherish it. :-)

Well....at least he is looking cute into the camera. lol

I also been to a fleamarket and bought these two. A lovely couple. She was wearing something awfull and I knew I had knitted a sweater a while a go.....it fits her like a glove.

Tulips from.....Amsterdam???

No....these tulips are from IJsselmuiden. And they are standing in Little Bear's garden.
The buddleja is also finished.

You see the lego....Klara told me to put a 1:1 item in the scene to compare scale
 The green you see will be the lawn and the rest will be stones.
This is how I made the tulips. They are 1.8cm high.

The buddleja in progress.  This wasn't the most efficient way.
Next time I will first put the leaves on and then make a bunch of it. :-)

Lythrum salicaria and waterlilies

The water of the pond is nice and clear but had become quite collapsed so I have put a new layer of "water" on it to fill it some more. I also made waterlillies and a few Lythrum salicaria.
The pond is almost ready.



I also try to make a buddleja.
What do you think....is it going to look like one or should I give up.

Handbag

Last thursday I made a handbag but I wasn´t completely satisfied. It was a horrible bag and I thougth that there had to be another way to make it. (I also wanted it to open).

Isn´t it a horrorbag??

This is the new one. It´s the same leather but then the inside out.

Pictures don´t do justice this time.

Little Bear wanted to see the bag too.

"Look.....I fit right in!!"

Hello again

Hello again.

It´s been a long time since the last time I wrote but I couldn´t find the motivation to do something because of some disorder in my family.
But.....I have been busy with a house a cousin gave to me. It´s not the house that I would have so I will give it away to my neighbours daughters after I´ve restored it a little bit.
This was the house when I got it, it had no windows at that time. 


With new paint on the outside it looks like this.

Added some wallpaper.
 And this is the house now. You can click on the foto to enlarge.



 Last saterday I have been to a craftfair with Klara. I bought quiltstuff.
Fabric, neeldes and paperhexacons. Now it must turn into a quilt. :-)

With love

Dollshousefair and more

Klara and I went to the dollshousefair at Urk today. We had a lot of fun.....ofcourse. It was very busy. But before we went to Urk she gave me a little box and when I opend it......I saw 2 lovely little dragons in my favorite colours.

Aren´t they the cutest dragons in the world??
They will live in my 1:48 Dragonhouse. Thank you Klara....they are so cute!!!

These are my buyings. I bought a travelingcasekit and a little gardenboxkit wich will protect de flowers against the sun. (Sylvia´s Lutjeboudel) Sylvia gave me a kit for making an toy airplain.
I also bought 2 dimlights from Nalladris, hinges and my quest......a lock.

I thought it looked a bit hartshaped but I decided to buy it anyway.

Later in the day I went to a local store where they sell all kinds of stuff. The Action.
I can´t do without this store. And look what I found there.....in a little case with beads.

I´m going to drill a hole in it and make it very rusty. This is the lock that I needed!!

Now I only need two or three tramps then the sewerscene is finished. ( But these guys are hard to find)

Fence update


I wasn´t totally satisfied with the fence. So I had some sleep on it and decided it had to be changed.
So today I did a lot of carving, sanding, cutting and slashing. Did a bit of staining.....and this is the result. 

You see that I cut the fence in two. I wanted to use a chain and lock to keep it closed.
Lisette gave me that idea.
Saterday I will go to the dollshousefair and I hope to score a chain and lock. Very rusty ones.

With love

Coathanger for little Bear.

Little Bear decided that he needed a coathanger. I asked him why? His aswer....It looks good on the wall in my house. He already wanted to start with sawing the wood. I didn´t think that it was a good idea if he
 would use my sawmachine...
                                                  ....so I gave him the saw he got from Jollie.


No little Bear.....we don´t need that much wood....


It´s finished. You see Little Bear´s happy face?!


I also made a new fence for the sewerscene.
This is the old one.....


....and this is the new one. I´m not finished yet. It needs to be painted and molested a little and I have to plant the ivy again. ;-)

Wich one do you prefer??


With love
