A few steps forward with the flower shop

Hello dear readers,

First of all, my heartiest thanks for your congratulations.  It was an upgraded award, from 100 top to 40 top.

Slowly but surely the florist shop is stepping forward.  In the middle of work, I found that I didn't have enough styrofoam material.  It was out of stock at the shop where I bought it.  On top of these bad news, the shopkeeper said he no longer does business with his styrofoam boards supplier.

At last, after a few weeks of frustration, I found a new shop and bought one large board which will enable me to finish the shop and a few other projects on the way.  Meanwhile, I'll let you have a look at what is ready.

Floor, flowers bouquet preparation table, some crates with a stock of flowers.

Chair completed.

Two outside wall curved.  Will be painted later.

A new shelves stand.  The one I made before is good for books rather than for flowers. It will be painted same as the table and chair.

For demonstration only.

Some crates with flowers and plants which will stand in front of the shop.

As you can see, there is still a lot of work to do. 

I wish you all lovely spring days and blessings.

https://blog.feedspot.comHello dear readers,

I'm very excited to let you know that today I've been informed by https://blog.feedspot.com that my blog has been awarded "top 40 dollhouse blog".  I've seen the list and feel honored as well as humbled to be included with the best.

I willingly gave up my carpeting.  Instead, I'll become a "stonemason".  Making paper flowers and cutting styrofoam stones are super time-consuming jobs.  I hope the results will justify my slow progress.

Pessah has been a long holiday which will end on next Saturday.  With young children on vacation, family and daily visits to my husband in his nursing home, it is almost impossible to work. However, I managed to make a pot of sunflowers, paint the furniture pieces and assemble the chair.  Only left to weave the chair's seat.

Also made a "stone wall"  from a small piece of styrofoam.  This wall is not intended for the flower shop.  It will be part of a barbeque scene in which both Alexandra's and Carmen's giveaway gifts will be displayed. I just needed to practice the work.

I wish you all a wonderful weekend and blessings.
