Now that Liberty's off to school I've had a few people asking me what I am doing with my time, even my mum rang me this morning to ask me! First let me tell you that school is going amazingly well for Liberty, she hasn't cried since the first day, I can't believe it!! And the teacher says Liberty talks to everyone and has no trouble sitting down and getting on with her work. So it's day 3 and so far - excellent!
I'm still trying to sort out the real house (once I locate the 'before' pics I'll do a post on the renovations), it's no fun having to put crappy old furniture back in our newly painted rooms but that's the way it is in real life. If only I could make a real size couch as easily as a mini one!
And I have a couple of new mini projects on the go. This is called a 'letterbox' house as it is a similar size and shape to a letterbox. It's just two rooms with a balcony, it's 1:12 scale and quite small - so the hubby can't complain too much! A couple at the club came up with the idea and a few of us are making them. I was able to get it this far on our last club day. Look at that wallpaper, how gorgeous is that?! This little house is going to be my 'shabby chic' house, all lovely pastel colours. I am VERY excited about this little house!! Some time ago Sylvia sent me a kitset/workshop to make this absolutely beautiful vintage washstand - in Dutch a 'wastafel'. Freddy translated the instructions for me because they were all in Dutch. The instructions said to use superglue to stick everything together - that was an interesting experience! The kitset also came with the vine and hydrangeas to make. And how perfect does it look in the shabby house!! Eeeek!!! Did I say I was excited!!! Making some more furniture today...
Does anyone know why some pictures can be clicked to enlarge and others can't??
