Thank goodness its February

Hi All
Yes its February, this means its a short month and soon it will be spring, see summer is on the way.
I started a new little project yesterday, not telling you what it is, but a little clue, some time ago I read Fifty Shades of Grey, so it is something based on that, so watch this space.

While I am on the subject of the above book, now I love to read and I always have a book on the go, I never usually fall for hype, but so much was said about Fifty shades that I had to get all 3, yes I got all 3, what a waste of money, ( now this is only my opinion ) the whole story could of been written in a few lines, why every one was gushing about this book is beyond me, enough said in case I upset some one.

I will be back into my work room later today, first its a trip to town to pay bills,

Piano finished

Hi All

Glad you like my new cover picture, I felt it was time for a change/

Does this happen to you? I was looking for something yesterday, easy you may think, no I ended up having a sort out of my work room, labelling boxes, sorting minis and generally tidying up, and I did not find what I was looking for!!

I managed to finish my piano, I did not like how I had done the inside so I re did it, I painted cocktail sticks gold and used them for the strings, I found some white pads I cut these up and used them for them thingy's inside the piano, I do not know what they are called. They looked good,  for the music holder, I found a bit of black plastic (from black railings) cut this and glued it to the music holder, added some music and hey presto its finished.

I was on a roll, so I worked on the jewellery cabinet, I added jewel's and others bits, gold trim to the glass and that was finished.

wow now I went on to work on a glass effect modern jewellery box, just need to add a bit of red felt to the inside and that is done,

Maybe that's the answer to get myself in the mood for minis, first tidy the work room.

photos for you

more work done

Hi All
 Wow I must say hello and thank you I have now reached 211 followers, you  crept up on me,
just pleased that you liked my blog enough to follow me, so welcome.
so pleased that I am able to get into my work room, the cold weather seems to be over, just have the rain to get over now. One good thing my routine bloods were ok this month and she is letting me go 3 weeks before the next test, I must be a good girl till then,

I have been carrying on with the piano, I changed the inside, I was not happy with the wires that I was using as strings, so I painted some cocktail sticks gold and used them, I just have to come up with an idea now for the little white rubber bits that go in there, ( can you tell how much knowledge I have got about pianos) 

I also worked on a jewellery cabinet, now that the paint had dried I could begin to add some gold decoration, I added a green base and have made 2 jewellery boxes with jewels inside, I want to make a couple more items before it is finished. Will look at it tomorrow.
 anyway have a look at the photos

Plushpussycat: Valentine's Day Giveaway!

Plushpussycat: Valentine's Day Giveaway!: Hello everyone! Valentine's Day is all about letting other people know that you love them, so it is a perfect way for me to tell all of you ...

Here is a lovely Give a way, all these Valentine goodies could be yours, so enter this

Its Monday

Hi All

Yes its Monday and time for me to fly around the net and find you Give a Ways to enter,

before I do let me update you what I did this weekend, nothing!! well I say nothing, my son was away for the weekend so I took advantage and decided to have a bit of a spring clean, Saturday I washed, cleaned and scrubbed.
 My first job was to enter, and I do say at my own risk, "The Pit" this is my sons room, I tend to keep the door shut to this room, those of you that have sons know what I mean, armed with an array of cleaning materials I entered, 1 hour later I emerged, the room was not recognised, I even felt I could leave the door open, the only thing is I had so much washing, it was very difficult to know what was clean and what was dirty, so the lot got washed. I felt very good after this. I went on to do the rest of my home.

I paid for all this on Sunday, my body decided that I had done to much and I felt like I had been run over by a steam roller, it is very hard sometimes with my condition, and there are times when I just want to do what I used to do, it makes me feel "normal" for a while,
Today I have my usual blood tests and then I hope to do a little more to my minis,

I have to show you a couple of pictures I took of my 2 doggies Sunday, it was very cold when we got up so I had the fire on, Mollie was lying in front of it and Muppet decided she was going to lay over her, it looked so funny,

well I better get started, look out for the Give a ways.
