Rooms for the Bavarian furniture

I finally found a box which will be turned into  three rooms to house the furniture.  I never thought it will take so much work!  I  made one wooden floor.  There have to be two more.  There are also windows and doors to be made.  It will probable take me a few months to finish.  But I did accomplish some work for the rooms. It took me forever to make the afgahn for the bed.  I also stiched a little rug.
The big rug I already had stiched long ago.

The main bedroom


The little pitcher is from Marlies tutorial  (http://marliesminies.blogspot.com/).

Children's Bedroom


The tiny baby's garments are a gift from dear Rosa Margarita (http://chiquicosas.blogspot.com/). I made the chair for the Nany. There is still a lot of work here.

The dinning room


 Eva's gift (http://casitaderegaliz.blogspot.com/) - there is no end to what I have to do here.  Can you see the tiny basket filled with lavender? - it's Jennifer's gift www.plushpussycat.com/).  The little vase is a bead.

Here is something cute I want to share with you. Breakfast in bed on a Sunday morning.



I wish you all a wonderful Sunday.

A kitchen cupboard

I built me a kitchen cupboard.  Maybe not the finest one but I am happy with the results. 

There were a few miniature blue glass pieces, two teapots I made from white and blue lined beads, two vases I made from Chinese beads, a ceramic vase I made, a painted shell and several ceramics my daughter made.  Now they are all displayed here.

The box is the one my ipad came in.  I found a frame which fits it.  The wallpaper, in its earlier life, was a shopping bag.


Now that I see the photo I think I'll add short legs to the cupboard.



Maybe a wall hanging or clock, there is too much empty space on top.







I'm not sure about the color of the frame.  Shall I leave it as it is... I'm getting used to it.  Your  advice or suggestion is welcome.

As always, I'm happy to extend a warm welcome to two more followers

From Spain with love

The postlady, who shares my thrills and delight each time she comes carrying gifts from friends
surprised me with a wonderful parcel from Spain.  Carmen - http://lamaisoncarmen.blogspot.com/.
Carmen,  a visit to your beautiful, inspiring blog is a privilege to be grateful for. Getting gifts is an unexcpected bonus.  THANK YOU!!!




I have to show you what this exquisite dress looks from the back.  A perfect finish.  The knitted top is beautiful and so is the matching bonnet. Very delicate lace bordered blue linen, a baby bottle and a silver pacifier, which will be wonderful for the nursary I have in mind.



The list of my followers is growing.  A warm welcome to Lucille, who doesn't have a blog yet.  I am trying to convince her to enter this wonderful world.

Tomorrow is Lag- Baomer Day.  Tonight,  all around us are bonfires and the smell of smoke.  It's a wonderful event for our young children, who for weeks have been collecting wood for the bonfires.
The view of bonfires scattered around for miles, is stunning if you are up on the roof of a tall building.

Blessings to all my friends and a good night

New Award

Thank you Maria Blance, - http:lascosasdemariaayamontino.blogspot.com/, for passing me this lovely award.
I can only be worthy of it after I state  five strange habits that I have and pass on this award  to 15 blogs:



1.  I collect funny cartoons.

2.  I prefer a book to a movie based on it.

3.  I have the cheek to post in English which is not my mother tongue.  I don't mind  if you  laugh when you
     see a strange word in my comments., my intentions are good.

4.  I am unable to finish telling a joke.  I start laughing  and it's contagious so people laugh along
     without knowing what the joke was about.

5.  I cry with tears streaming down my eyes at the silliest moving story but cannot wear contact lens because
     my eyes are too dry.

About passing on this award to 15 blogs. Why only 15 when I can pass it on to 394?  The only condition is that you state your 5 strange habits.  You are invited to come and get it.

Have a lovely day with my blessings
