After that something funny happened. We were preparing to get the cottage on a kind of turn-table, you know, a 'lazy-susan' and needed to fit a battery pack underneath, so I was going to lift it up from its crate on which it stood while I was working on it. I lifted it. Well, I tried! I couldn't remember it being so heavy! Tried again. It wouldn't budge. Know what happened??? The resin had seeped between the base and its frame and had set on top of the crate, so in effect it had glued the whole frame to the crate. Luckily we could prise it loose without too much damage...
While I was at it I have taken a few more piccies of the inside:
This was just enough for the display, although I am still working on a few bits and pieces. When I have finished downstairs there's still upstairs to do as well. It's probably going to be Eucalypta's bedroom, but to be honest, I am getting a bit weary of working on this project. I'd rather do something else for a while, so when downstairs is finished I'll move on to something else for a while. In the meantime, this is what I have done today. It's a chest filled with odds and ends. My mind wanders off now and then and I was thinking about the locks and keys that I had bought the other day. Suddenly I needed a chest which could be locked and here it is:
In front is a little rug, printed on paper and I liked what I saw, so it's going to be printed on fabric and will go into the cottage as well. Next is the little wall table in the corner that needs to be finished and my scariest plan is to work on the owl. I have bought beautiful feathers and I would like to try and make it into a real owl, but I'm scared that I can't pull it off. Well, there's only one way to find out. Do it!!! I'll let you know the outcome....
And then over to all my new followers that I have neglected for so long. So first a warm welcome to a few new friends and not so new friends, because there are a number of people that are also following my other blogs. In that case, welcome again. And who are they? I am going to say hello to:
Bastrota from Germany at Bastrotas Blog,
Tori, my daughter-in-law to whom I also have said hello on my other blog. She doesn't have a blog, but is an excellent scrapper when she's got the time between family, work and study!
Ana at Mi mundo en rosa,
Otterine at Otterine.com blog,
Susy at Susy cottage,
Jaime Folk at A Little roomer by Jaime,
M Carmen Casanova at Mini shabby,
Beatrice at Les miniatures de Béatrice.
Be sure to visit the blogs. There's so much interesting stuff.
Furthermore I noticed a few people for whom I couldn't find a blog or website. I would love to show them, so if you do have one, please let me know and I add them to the list. A warm welcome also to you: Yayin, Catherine and aproshkina.
And of course I am happy to see so many followers. I know we've passed the 100 already, and even before my other blog got that far, but I find it very difficult to think of a giveaway for this blog, staying in the theme of witches. So please bear with me, when I have finalised the draw for my other blog I will try and come up with something for this one to thank you all for showing so much interest.
That's all for now, I'm off to bed...
