The shelf still needs a second coat of paint, but then again, much of the white will not be visible later, as the ground will get grass and a path. It's nice to see how it gets shape now. I want to make a stone wall at the back, like the conservatory is placed against that wall. Then a low wall surrounding it, with the 'metal' fence on it. I won't be using the entire fence, just the upper halve.
As you can see, I also made some hydrangas from a kit.
The thing I like about this kit is that it had flowers in it with different sizes and different shades of blue, making it more realistic. I still need to add some leaves, I think. I also think I need to add some more colour variation on the leaves. The pots are bought, but adjusted to my taste (other knobs, painted, made older, etc).
Also some other goodies I bought for the conservatory. There's more, too much for just this conservatory, but these certainly will get a place here.
As promised the progress on the birdcage-stand, which my husband makes for me:
The stand will get an other birdcage though. I think a cage with a 'tower' on each side will look more beautiful! I also want to combine wire with wood on it. The stand itselve is not ready yet: it needs curls made of iron threads. One curl is easy, but how do you get more curls which look the same? Any suggestions?

Soms maak ik miniaturen (black cat cottage blog), een andere keer ben ik aan het tekenen, of schilderen, knippen, plakken, schrijven, fotograferen, zagen, boetseren, sculptuur, borduren, solderen,...
