Duddingwells in morning sunshine
Hello everyone. The week has only just started but I hope it's been kind to you. Kinder than it has been to me. I spent my morning working on my furniture kit designs ( I am decidedly not good at it) and by lunchtime I was a little over them. So I decided to spend some time tidying up my craft room. I was on a chair rearranging stuff on a shelf and dropped a drawer full of 1/2" scale Bespaq. Yep, splinters of furniture everywhere. Not good. So spent an hour glueing all the bits back together again. Sigh. I did have a few bits left over which must be from bits of furniture that are no longer in the drawers. So now I need to track down their owners. Maybe tomorrow. They are all on my chair, so I can't sit on it until I find their rightful place.
Anyway, I was really posting as I was working on the landscaping of my Duddingwells on Sunday. I went up to my craft room early Sunday morning and the light was streaming through the window, and straight through the window of Duddingwells. It was casting a beautiful light and really makes the rooms come alive.
I was really lucky to find a few bits of plastic plants when I took my doggy to her eye specialist appointment last week, so Duddingwells now has some large ferns and a daisy bush. I have started some stone walls for the garden, which I hope to make look like they are crumbling. I will show some photos next week. I am quite happy with how it's coming along. Next step is buying some flower kits (foxgloves, daffodils, hollyhocks, maybe some hellebores). Given I no longer work, we are on reduced play money, so fewer minis unfortunately.... Still, I am happier and I hope to have my mini kits up for sale really soon, so maybe then I will have a little extra income.
Hope you have a great week! Mini on everyone!
