Tree in progress

My paperclay tree is starting to look more like a tree now! I`ve painted it, and I`ve tried adding this green stuff -Not an easy task! It kept falling apart, and I realized pretty quickly that I have far from enough of it. I bought it at Hamleys many years ago, so when I went to London earlier this month, I went there to buy more. But they didn`t have it! Guess I just have to keep my eyes open everytime I go to a store that sell model railroads. So for now, the tree has to stay like this. But at least you can get an idea of what is`s going to look like. :-)

A visit to Kristin Baybars shop

In the beginning of January I went to London, and of course I had to visit Kristin Baybars shop! She is such a lovely lady, and her shop is amazing!

I bought some small glass items. I am planning to make some scented candles using the three jars.

I also got these urns. I have made lots of flowers, and I`m going to make flower arrangements in these for the diningroom at the Inn.

And I bought some lamps...

And the wizard got some new glass items for his potion making.

He also got a filled shelf for his bedroom.

I don`t know the maker of this chair, but it`s absolutely gorgeous! I put it in the Tuscan Villa.

This is piping for a sink I have, and a sweet picture.

ATM swap - A Christmas Carol

I joined a swap at the ATM forum, where the theme was "A Christmas Carol". This is what I made... A metal sign, a wooden tray and a turkey.

And this is what I got in return :-D

Thank you so much Cate, Cia and Karin! Love them!

December Dollhouse Club meeting

At our last Dollhouse Club meeting, we made these zinc pots that we saw on Lena`s blog! So fun and easy to make, a great club project!

This time we met at my house, and here`s me to the right, and Viviann to the left.



Rita to the left, and Mariann...

Mariann and Signy....

As always, I had a great time at our meeting! I just love getting together and making minis :-)
I`m looking forward `till next time. We`re going to make some flowers to put in the zink pots then.

Christmas gifts

I got some minis for Christmas!

My mom bought me this Reutter set when they visited Germany this summer...

And my sister got me one more Stokesay Ware jar for my collection, the one that says "Tea".

And the gift I got from my husband and the kids.... a trip to London! And of course a visit to Kristin Baybars shop! So there`s a pretty good chance that I have some new minis to show you when I get back ;-).
A friend of mine and I are leaving this Thursday, and we`ll be back on Sunday.
