My Mother's Day Gift

. Saturday, May 15, 2010

For Mother's Day I wanted to finally get in all the doors and windows for my house. I ordered them early so they would be here for Mother's Day and I could spend my day getting them all installed.

Fortunately, the house's previous owner had cut most of the windows to the size I needed. I did have to cut a different size for the front door, the attic window, and I put a door on the third floor as I am going to add on a balcony.

I got them all cut and just stuck in there and the house is already looking so much better. I'm excited to see it with doors and windows. It gives it a whole new life. I got the kind of windows that could open and close and the attic windows swing out.

I started the painting, at least on the outside of the windows and doors, but not the inside yet. I have everything sitting there so when we are watching TV shows I like I can paint. I also realized I forgot to buy the door knobs and I'll need to go back and clean up the paint I got on the glass.

And just because ---- here's a picture of my little dog Tink sleeping in her hammock with her tongue hanging out.

I love toads

. Friday, May 7, 2010

For the last few nights the toads have been "singing" really loudly. Out looking for love I guess, because, today while cleaning my pond I found a happy toad couple and their strands of pearly babies.

One is the Loneliest Number Treasury

. Wednesday, May 5, 2010

My sad clown was put into a treasury about Loneliness. To me some of the loneliest times are in a big crowd. It's a beautiful treasury and I'd like to thank Creations by Eileen for including me in it.

Fairy and witch hand

. Tuesday, May 4, 2010

ADO's Spring Enchantment Challenge has come to an end and I made it in the nick of time getting my Fairy with the Caterpillar done. Next in my dolly world, I'm ready to get started on an Alice and Wonderland doll. I'm still not entirely sure what I want to do, I have so many ideas, I can't decide what to settle on.

In the mini world, I got in 12 windows and two doors for my big doll house which I'm excited about because then I start getting to the pretty stuff which is more fun for me than the building part.

Team MIDS (Miniatures in Doll House scale) is doing an Alien Challenge this month which sounds like fun so I'm going to make a mini alien. So far, I got his eye made.

Recently I inherited some minis from a family member and in there was a little red apple. So I made the witch's hand from Snow White to hold that little apple. I put it in my Etsy shop, but I really like it and am going to make one for myself as well.
