A new corner cabinet

Slowly inspiration is coming to me, but every so slowly.......  Eucalypta needed a cabinet for storage, but I couldn't make up my mind.  Finally I settled for a corner cabinet.  Not too big, because it's only a small cottage and big funiture doesn't look good. I didn't feel like working with wood, so I dug out some cardboard from a box under the bench and set to work.  Here is the result:

I didn't really want some old looking cabinet.  Eucalypta is entitled to some good stuff too, don't you think?  It's amazing what you can do with card and a few embellishments.  I painted it a very dark red, because I don't like too many different colours in any particular setting.  I think it's more pleasing for the eye this way.

Now I need to fill this cabinet.  I wish I had some glass bottles that I could fill.  I'll have a good look and in the meantime will try and think of a few other things.  I'll show you when I've got something to fill this and who knows, I might also get inspiration to make some more furniture.

I might as well welcome two more followers: Francesca (Chipironini) at Petitissim who makes beautiful baby dolls and Clara who doesn't seem to have a blog.  Welcome to both of you and I hope you'll enjoy following my blog.

See ya,

New shoes

What's a witch without shoes?  That's what a good friend of mine thought! Nadia came to my workshop at the weekend and had a present for me.  Uhhhh, no, not for me.  OMG I nearly stept on Eucalypta's toes....... (pardon the pun).  A present for Eucalypta.  How she knew her size, I don't know, because Eucalypta is currently packed away, or shall I say: "Not At Home"......  So, therefore I have put her new shoes under the chair near the fire.  When she comes home she'll enjoy nice warm shoes:

They look so lovely.  I am thrilled.  I should be working on the cottage a bit more.  Will do my best!

In the meantime I discovered that in our absence we have gained a few more followers.  I really need to start thinking about a giveway for when I reach 100!!!!

But first things first.  A warm welcome to:

Kriana at Miniaturas Kriana
I think a group of miniaturists (?) at Casitamini (I don't understand Spanish that well ;-))
Karen Casper from near Cologne, Germany at KC Design
Tebbina from Germany (?) at Tebbinas Traum
Lorraine at DflyCreations
Jonna "Rudoo" at Buggaboos
Allyson at Free Spirit Farm
Linda at Linda's Minis

And then there are also Ria van Woggelum who I know, but Ria, I can't remember if you have a website or not.  Please let me know, and there's also Miniaturemaid for whom I couldn't detect a link.  Anyway, welcome to both of you as well.

And this is really it for now.  It's nearly dinner time and I am famished.  See you later.....
