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.

Hello dear readers, I've less and less time for miniatures lately but I have fun working at the Day Care Center, teaching handcrafts that I learn from Pinterest, Youtube and other sources. Alone at home I made 18 Women's Day miniature flower arrangements for Women's Day as gifts for the wonderful staff who work with the people at the Day-Center.
