new work

welcome to Tee, I hope you will enjoy my blog, Thanks Norma for your lovely comments.
well I have been doing as I am told, its hard to be still, in my head I am still running around at full speed. as I said I was going to finish of my half finished projects, guess what I have finished 4, yes 4,

bedroom set, I had painted this in cream and distressed it, added gold paint and trim,

this started as a round coffee table, I added longer legs and a mirror then painted the same as the bed,
I made the perfume bottles from beads and the small dish is a button filled with old flowers

I added small pics of flowers then decorated the same as the bed

on the bed is a wooden tray made from scraps of wood, flowers and a book

I have still to add more bits to this, so far it has towels, perfume boxes and a memory box

this was an old broken settee that I repaired, painted and recovered, added cushions

I am pleased with the results and these will go into eBay for sale when I have got a few more items made.
today shopping first then back to my room, I just love it in there and find I completely lose track of time, well better hang out the washing see you all later.

hi all

Good morning all
I am feeling much better and have ventured into my work room, the temptation was too much and I gave in, well after consulting my Dr. who said do what you feel comfortable doing, and to me that meant miniatures!!!
I have so many projects that are half done, so the decision was made to take one at a time and finish them, so my first was a double bed, this was half painted, so I worked on that, have taken pictures and will put them on later, along with the bed I then made a matching dressing table and wardrobe, finished of a settee, I do feel like I am getting some where,
my new work room is so light and a pleasure to work in, but it did not take me long to make it untidy

below are pictures of my work room. what do you think, I am so lucky, its even got a telly,
right next to my kitchen so handy for coffee.

showing my big project, my Victorian house, this is work in progress

my messy work bench, well I know where everything is

today I have to go to get my bloods taken, I have to do this twice a week, then they tell me what strength I need for my blood thinning tablets, got to do this for 6mths.
when I get back suppose I will have to do some house work, then I will be going to do more minis, see you all later
