Trash to treasure

Hi all

I have started, I got some photos of "Franks" laboratory equipment, I must admit it looks very interesting, anyway I got out my box of trash and started to create the equipment,
I love doing this as it really stretches my imagination, it took me all day to create 3 bits, I had to keep waiting for glue to dry, before I started on the next bit, not very good at that as I get impatient and want to get it finished, got some photos for you.

I laughed yesterday, I am so glad my neighbour know what I do, we were chatting away and then I said " got to go, my coffins should be dry by now" if anyone had been listening they would wonder what I was doing. yes I made and painted a coffin, may use it for the scene, not sure yet.

Got my appointment today with my consultant, I should find out what is wrong with my breathing, part of me does not want to know, but the other half says if I know I can get on with it and deal with it.

I have included a photo of my babies, I cannot believe Muppet is 1 year old this month, the time goes so quick.
Enough rambling, here's the photos

some of the trash I used

what I made, do not ask me what they are, as I do not have a clue

Starting a new project

Hi All
I noticed yesterday that I have some new followers, hello and welcome to my blog, hope you will enjoy what I create, please feel free to leave comments.

Yes I have started a new project, I have had a black coffin and a body lying around for ages, just waiting for me to do something with, I kept looking at it waiting for inspiration, nothing came, then light bulb moment, I will do a horror scene, so that meant researching what I could do, I finally picked Frankenstein's Laboratory. Sound good?.

I have got several pictures of equipment and of Franks, ( how I like to call him) laboratory,
Yesterday I sat and sorted through my stash of bits and have put aside items that may come in useful. again I will be using trash to try and create this.

So no photos to show you just yet, today I will start to make the equipment, will take photos of the trash I use, so you can see how I transform it into something.

This project is a change from my usual shabby chic miniatures, but every so often I think we all need to create something different.

Had a few days off

Hi All
been a bit lazy last week, I took advantage of the brilliant sunshine we have had, my son and I managed to get quite a bit done to the garden, well he did, I supervised.
we finished decorating the toilet, just needs flooring now, that will come after the bathroom is finished, I can then get both floors done.
Got my haircut and styled, went to town on "the beast" that's what I am now calling my scooter. I love it, I have got so much of my Independence back, I am whizzing about everywhere.
It was my birthday on Sunday, both my sons took me out for a meal, I had a lovely day.
the only minis I did was to finish a scooter that someone ordered from me.
anyway rest over, lots I want to do today, this week, first I am making some new cushion covers for my settee, and a new throw, will have to put photos on.
see you all soon
