Finally the kids are back at school and kindy. I can hear George Michael singing "Freedom" in my head and it sounds oh so sweet!
This little summerhouse is where I'd like to be (it's a stinkin' hot summer here at the moment) but alas it's only about 15cm (almost 8 inches) tall. At the miniatures club we're each going to make a little garden to go by the old porches we built (see my Christmas post). We're not starting the actual garden until our next meeting but I couldn't wait to make this to go in it. It's not quite finished (is anything?!) I still haven't decided what should go on the roof, shingles, slate or rusty iron. The garden is supposed to be derelict! But then again so was the porch. I think mine is best described as 'lived in and loved derelict'.
I made the little table last night. The platter of food my friend bought me in Thailand, it's so detailed. There's a little box of scorched almonds for after lunch.
Here's the little wall shelf I made. The blue bowl is just a bead. The candlestick holder was made by one of the club members it's made from a giant dome. The wooden bowl is an acorn cup, I remember making a whole dinnerset out of those when I was a kid. I drew flowers on the flat ones for dinner plates.
Thanks for lookin'! If there are any other miniaturists with blogs out there please leave me a comment so I can find you!
