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?
I used to put all my creativity into miniatures (see the blackcatcottage blog), but somehow it doesn't interest me as much as before. Now I do all kind of things: scrapping, card making, taking photographs, drawing, sculpting (clay and wood), making jewellery, ... And again I started blogging about it (Woodland Ways blog). I love fairytales and nature, and that will show in my work. (Photography on this blog is copyright protected!
