Mr. Poe got some chairs and clothes and the English greenhouse and a VOODUCOOKOO
I received today the chairs from Kris, they are absolutely fabulous!
Kris had added some books also, thank you so much :) And these pictures really don't do justice for the chairs, they are so beautifully and skilfully made, amazing work!
And a suprise package arrived today from Nina :)
Thank you so much Nina, I love them and the walking stick is fab :) And had to try them on right away, I really think Mr. Poe looks quite better with clothes on :D The tophat is made by Ewa.
And then the greenhouse, we had yesterday a internet connection break down so actually got some building done :D
Took the wood pieces away from the ends of the greenhouse and made some divisions for the side windows, now it looks a bit more on scale :)
And did some tiles from air drying terracotta coloured clay, dried them in the oven, sanded each of them and did some painting. Sprayed some varnish on them, did the grouting and added some Nikki's moss :) Did also a brick wall to the back with stencil and painted (and did some hammering also) on a resin fireplace.
I was first thinking of doing a greenhouse, but now I'm more and more thinking of doing a conservatory, foliage plants, orchids and primroses and to have a long table in the middle with a late dinner. And I would love to add a chrystal chandelier with lights :) I'm also thinking that I could link the conservatory somehow to my vampire room which now might become a house :D
We also cut the base for my daughters Indian room, it's going to be octagonal room with a balcony. This room is supposed to be my daughters project, but I'm getting the feeling that it's me who's going to do all the building work :D But got some great ideas for furniture already, see if I get them done.
And then last but not least - tadaa - A VOODUCOOKOO!
Isn't he fabulous??? This little cutie is Kristy's wonderful work and he'll be soon (hurry up postman!) be sleeping in the greenhouse :)
