Lovely gift I got today

Hi All

I have had a couple of days off this week, I felt very tired and my breathing was not so good, so yesterday I had a duvet day, done me good

Now my lovely gift, a little while ago I said I was trying to find old music sheets to use as wallpaper for my music shop, a lovely lady called Lesley contacted me and she has sent me a book full, this is what I love about blogging, you get to know many nice people.

Today I concentrated on getting some little projects done while I was waiting for paint to dry, I have painted the upright piano dark green and I have an idea in my head what  I want it to look like, I just hope I can do it,

someone asked what I was going to put into my little shelf that I got the other day, I collect Reuter miniatures, I do not spend more than 5.00 on any one piece and I had been looking for some where to display them, the shelf is perfect, I have kept all the boxes. I have put a picture on for you to see,
I got a surprise when I was looking at ebay today, I saw a pram by Barton and it made 34.00, this got me thinking and yes I have 2 in my stash so out they came and now have pride of place along side my Hiedi Ott pram, will not be selling them but will watch with interest what they fetch.

Off out for a meal tonight so better go and get ready, here are the photos.

I have been busy

Hi All

Yes I have been busy, got my piano and harp finished, well I thought the piano was finished then I realised I had forgot to put the foot pedals on, will do that today,
I seem to be obsessed with piano's, I brought 2 upright piano's from ebay for next to nothing, so I have taken one to bits and started to paint it.
What is it with me, I always have to change things, anyone else have this problem?

I finally got to my jumk shops, not a lot of bargains to be found, but I did find 2 adorable birds, paid 50 pence each for them, and I got a wooden thimble cabinet for 1.00, I have already started to paint it, see changing things again, I have wanted one of these for ages, I collect unusal miniatures and Reuter minis, some of them will fit in here, must show you my collection one day,

We seem to have finally finished with the cold weather, but it is raining today, my doggies woke me at 6am to go out, they took one look at the rain and went back to bed!! now I am awake. I did make myself a cup of coffee and went back to bed myself, just getting back to sleep and the postman knocked, gave up in the end and stayed up.

Here are the photo's

the thimble shelves, painted it a light blue

Do you like my birds?

I love how this came out

this is now in bits and being painted, will show you when its finished

Hi all,
I know its Tuesday, and yesterday I should of been finding you Give a ways, but real life got in the way, so will see what I can find you today.

I must say hello and welcome to my new followers, I hope you enjoy my blog, feel free to add comments. All my work is for sale, if anyone is interested just send me an email to discuss it.

So what have I been up to, Saturday was a fun day, Mollie my new puppy found a large dead bird,, and she was so excited she decided to bring it in the house to show the others, how sweet I hear you say!!! no!! she dragged it over the kitchen floor, the hall carpet and ended her journey in my bedroom, so there I was washing and cleaning floors and carpets, Mollie was quite upset that I did not let her keep her new toy and ignored me for ages, she finally came round when I gave her some treats.

I have done some more work on my crafts and made another bag, I ma gradually building up stock, so that I have enough to sell.

In the miniature scene, I am carrying on with creating bits for my music shop, after my first attempt with the piano, I decided to have a go at another one, this time I have painted it and decoupaged it, I also painted a shelving unit black, I added a back and covered this with torn sheets of music, I am pleased how it came help. I painted a harp in the same blue and added a little picture. I hope to finished them today.

have a look

I printed pictures of gold records, laminated them and made a small frame.

Right I am off now to see what give a ways I can find you, so watch this space
