reminder Give A Way and a question

Hi all
hope you have had a good weekend, could not believe it I now have 112 followers, hello and welcome to my blog
thank you all for the lovely comments,
remember to write a comment to enter my first Give A Way, I will be drawing the winner on Wednesday 7th March, that's another thing, we are into March already, where is the time going?

I have a question for you, I want to get a new camera, mine is not to bad at taking photos but I would like to update it, so can anyone suggest what camera would be best for taking pictures of miniatures, any suggestions would be welcome.

what have I been up to this weekend, I am still painting the outside walls of the doggy salon, also the windows and doors, so I will not bore you with pictures of that, I kept changing my mind about what colour to use, today I hope to be putting the windows and door in place, and hopefully finishing off the walls, out of everything I do with miniatures I must admit I find painting boring.

While I was waiting for the paint to dry, I did a couple of projects, I am doing a charity farye next  Sunday, I am taking my shabby chic stuff, but also decided to take some of my minis, you never know someone may buy them, so I need to get some bits done to take,
I took a black pram and I am changing it, I first painted the wheel spokes in gold and the wheels in white, I found some lovely snakeskin looking paper, so I have used that to cover the pram, this is the first time I have used paper and I think it has come out pretty well, I have got to varnish it this morning to make sure it does not rip or tear.
I then made the covers, I still have a bit more to do, I have got to make a tray to sit under the pram and a bag to hang on the handle, I used to make a lot of these prams, they always seem to sell well on eBay, maybe I should try them again, not sure, will think about it.
I also had a sleigh bed which I have painted and will be dressing today. have put a pictures on so you can see what I am up to.
well that's all for now, don't forget to enter the Give a way, see you all soon
