Its been a while

Yes Its been a long time since I have posted anything, I am sorry to those who do come to visit. I have put my back out, and can not walk very well, I need to have daily morphine injections at the moment, and needless to say I can hardly use my arms, lol, I think they will have to start jabbing me in the backside lol, it is a lot tougher than my arms, YIKES....

I hope to be able to post something nice for pink Saturday this week, I have been working on one of my dollshouses, though this one is yellow not pink, I will show you some of it, also I have been making polymer clay plants to fill a mini conservatory, I need lots and it is starting to look very nice indeed.

Most of the plants are made from polymer clay including the hanging baskets, and the baskets themsleves, I make these and use jewellery findings for the chain etc
A couple of the larger plants are made with mulberry paper leaves , but all in all I think It will be quite nice and green and lush when finished, now I just have to make the conservatory to put them all in lol.
The tiles on the floor are from Hirst Arts (R) and will be painted another colour, they are made from plaster of paris, from a mold, and are about 1 inch in size, so in real life these would be about 1 foot square pavers which is about right.I would like to get this finished soon as I have just purchased 2 more dolls houses, very large Dura Craft (R) ones, both mansions lol.

Here is a pic of some others that very clever people have built.

This one is from the very clever Tracey Topps, if you google her you will see more wonderful houses she has made.

And this gorgeous one, I can t remember where this one came from.

If mine turns out half as nice as these I will be very pleased indeed.

Cheers for now Debra.

I can't believe how great you made these budget dollhouses look! It is amazing how great they can be if you put the time and effort into them.
