Hello dear readers All my plans for working on Solly's home were postponed. I had to tidy and clear my work surfaces, (Kitchen table, Dining table, even kitchen counter) to allow room for family celebration of my birthday and our Pentecost Holiday. Now the surfaces are tidy but the work is slower as it takes time to find the necessary items that were close at reach before. The floors are from cardboard. They need a coat or more of Mod Podge before being glued on.

Hello dear readers, Solly is a cheerful little winged bear, handcrafted by ny very talented friend Birgit, BiWuBaer.blogspot.com. (link didn't work) Solly is a gift which brings smiles everytime I look at him. the charming yound Solly has been with me over 4 years, didn't have a place of his own and never complained about it. I wanted him to have a cheerful sunny room and this is what it's going to look like. Couln't find wall paper so I experimented with decoupaging a papernapkin. How you like the result.

Hello dear readers, I had to complete the third and last of the three scenes on a slice of tree branch before starting with the project of Solly's home. One thing led to another, you'll see what I mean with the next photos and I found myself even more busy, this time with miniatures. This is the new scene. Trees made out of grapes stems and foam, houses out of ceramic clay, fired in a kiln and than painted. Lake and duck out of my homemade cold porcelain.

Helo dear readers This is my first post of this month. I found out lately that time devided on many different jobs runs out much quicker than it should. I was looking for new materials at the craft corner of Max Stock, one of the largest department stores in my town that sells small accessories for the home. I found among other things, this set of two wooden boxes. The larger box can make a nice home for little solly who has been hinting about having a place of his own. There are some pieces of furniture that will fit in, including a bed.

Hello dear readers, I have been working on the second slice of wood. This one also has a tree but without a house on top. Instead the house is a nutshell surrounded be a garden and a home for a gnome.

Hello dear readers, I was gifted three pieces of wood cuts and challenged to make a little scene on each. This was my first one. I hope the others will come out as good as this one. I used materials from my stash.
