Fairy Chairs

Hello dear readers

Sometimes I feel I'm on an isolated island with my miniatures while crazy fanatics run around feeling
free to shoot and kill innocent people.  It's like a Russian roulette, you never know who and where the next victims will be.  I feel guilty in dealing with trivial things like making miniatures these days but devoting my time to make minis is an escape and  has a calming effect.

Remember that decorative plastic flower pot cover?  I managed to cut more fairy items out of it.

I wish you all a safe and calm Sunday and a wonderful summery week ahead.

New Plant rack

Hello dear readers,

I was preparing this post very early in the morning, when I heard on the radio the shocking news about the murderous
attack on innocent civil people vacationing in Nice.

I was too shocked and forgot to change the heading. This is why, by mistake, the previous post got the same heading.

I made a plant rack and am going to show you how because the same method with a slight alteration can be used to make a garden or patio swing.

The materials are simple to find:

2 pairs wooden chop sticks (cut to length of about 15 cms)
6 lollipop sticks (for one 4 cm shelf and one 2 cm wide shelf.)
1 wooden barbecue stick
Glue ( I used tacky glue)
Paint of your choice

Let's pray for a quiet, peaceful weekend.  Blessings my dears

New plant rack

This is a sad day for France and all Humanity.  I pray for quick recovery for all the injured  and the bereaved families.

When will it all end?

Ducky Planters

Hello dear readers,

I made some experiments with a new to me, made in China, air drying clay.  My first attempts were
a disaster.  The clay was a nice terracotta color but when it dried it became kind of faded rose color.  I gave up but later on I tried again and here are the results.

Next I plan to try making spooky vessels for this same clay.  Hope something will come out.

While I was making flowers to fill up the duck pots, I remembered that I had some cold porcelain
clay which I made for another project and decided it was time to try out Susy's Aloe Vera tutorial.
I planted them in two upside-down painted terracotta metal Christmas bells.

As usual, July and August are the hottest days here and this year is no exception.  The good thing is that we have the sea very close.  Since we have no plans to go away on a holiday because of my
husband's health condition, the sea is our escape. Now I have more seashells in my stock. (Stuff to create minis from.)

I wish you all, my dear readers, a wonderful weekend and blessings.
