stange or weird

Finally the mystery object.
my family think that I have finally gone nuts, they do not have a miniaturists mind, I suppose having been a nurse for many years I just found it great, have a few things in my mind what I could do with it, but for now it will sit on my shelf until I am ready to play, anyway you make up your own minds up, is it weird or strange to you!!!
here goes

have a good weekend, see you all soon

its a dogs life

Hi all
welcome to Mieke, glad you dropped by, also thank you for your lovely comments, I love reading them,
its cooled down here thank goodness, and we have had a lot of rain, easier to work in.

Just had to show you this, my little dog, freebie is so lazy, when I get up in the morning she stays in bed, yes I let her sleep with me, she is spoilt, look at this photo

she has to sleep under the covers.

now back to  my minis, yesterday I almost finished my 40's house, now I just have to dirty it up and tidy up a few bits, the lights are in, I hate that job, why do the bits ping off at the moment you are about to connect it, got them done after a lot of swearing, you can see the result in the photos,

I then had a little black metal pram, so I customised that, I first painted the spokes brass coloured and around some of the pram, made a cover and hood, see the results,
I also made a small baby changing mat. I may make a few more bits not sure yet, I go into my work room with one idea and then I look around and change my mind.

I got this lovely display table from eBay, its showing little Egyptian relics, not sure where to put it yet, I have a big project that I want to do, if you have looked through my blog you would of see all the bits I have and have made for my Egyptian room box, so do not know if to put it in there or the study in my Victorian house, we will see, I keep looking at my Egyptian miniatures, I must start on that, it will be a big one, maybe I will start it,

I have also got another item from eBay ( I am always looking on there) not telling you yet but its so different, and have not got a glue what to do with it, ( I have just thought of something, but it may be a bit creepy) you will see what I mean when you see this mini, but that's all I am going to tell you about it, watch this space.
so lets see the photos.

the little pram,
changing mat

this is so lovely

Well I had better get dressed, do a bit of housework, boring, see you all soon

Its hot and sunny

Morning all

Hello and welcome my new followers, I am always surprised when I see you all and know that you look at what I do, I thank you for your interest.

its so lovely today, the sun is shining and its getting warmer all the time, mind you they have said we will have rain later, that will save me watering my veggies.

So what have I been doing, 40's house nearly done, got to attach the front, tidy up the exterior and connect all the lighting, I can then get on with the next project, I am torn between making the garden and Anderson shelter or the conservatory for my big house, decisions no doubt I will get on with something.

I have been busy making some more bits for eBay, I must get on and make myself another page for selling, but I always seem to be doing something else, I get asked if I get bored not having a job, NO I get up when I like, I do what i want and have time to spend doing my miniatures where is the boredom in that?

I am so excited I am getting a new puppy, a cross between a Yorkie and a miniature toy poodle, they are due to be born in 2 weeks, I will get fist pick,  I may have to start another blog about my new puppy, I got to see about freebie, as she is a girl I have got to get her done!!! as I want to have a boy this time and it would be hell when Freebie is in season, that will cost me I'm sure, visiting vets this week for her inoculation's so will discuss it then.

I was pleased this week I now only have to have my bloods taking every 3 weeks instead of weekly, they say they have got my blood clotting under control, I have to have another echo scan in 2 weeks, not looking forward to that I am scared as that's where I stopped breathing last time, but My fella is coming with me and I am sure they will know what they are doing, well i hope so. My joints have been very sore so at times it has been difficult, but I carry on no good moaning there are others worse off than me. see rambling again, I did warn you.
anyway lets get on with the photos.

bathroom shelving,

I distressed this and then added new covers and bows, the picture does not really show its colours at its best

back, added bows here to

kitchen dresser, i made the food, the cake stand is 2 plates connected with a small metal tube,the vase is a bead, from out of the drawers I put a small bit of checked material to represent a tea towel, the other holds napkins, which is just small bits of white material rolled and I added a trim to represent the napkin ring, other bits are from my stash.

Thats all for today
