Garden display! in miniature

When the children bring home plants from school, I always seem to kill them after a while, I give them too much or too little water!

I have heard of 'repotting' the plants to the garden, but by the time I remember, the plants are long gone :) I have always loved the beauty of nature, so when I found this shelf at a local vintage shop, I thought I could use it to display a little plant collection.

This way I know they'll always be beautiful:)

The wellies are re-ment, the cushions are handmade.

lundby doll house chilling room :)

In a previous post I mentioned how one of the rooms in my lundby house was a "junk room" because it had so much stuff in it and I wasn't sure what to do with it, then I bought the record player/ entertainment unit, and hey presto! music room with my adorable reac chair :)
The wooden shelving unit was an ebay find, and I really like it :)

New dolls house! :)

Ok! I'd had my eye on a dolls house from the dolls house emporium for a while now, but I hesitated as I could not justify moving my sofa to the garden to make space for it :) haha! but I finally gave in and bought it. Yes I bought the 1,2,3 waterside way kit! I'd been dreaming about! and its arrived!

Now I look at all the pieces, in the boxes, and I can't help but wonder if this is too much to do now! so I have checked the pieces as you do, and boxed it back up. I will get to it soon when I am feeling braver, although I can't stop thinking of all the great scenes and rooms I can create, and what I could do on the balconies ;-).

So in anticipation of the job of building this dolls house I have set this room.

I think about all the wonderful possibilities and all the things I will try do to right this time, like painting with a roller instead of a paintbrush! or using wallpaper only if it significantly adds to the design, as I find wallpapering stressful, as bubbles seem to pop up from nowhere :), and planning ahead but still taking the time to enjoy every aspect of the process of creating my mini world:)

so I relax with a glass of wine and contemplate ...hmmmmmmm

Kitty cares about the environment and wanted to recycle her boxes and bottles, it was had finding containers small enough and pretty, but she found what she was looking for in the re-ment tableware set! cool:)

Friday???!!! in the office

Ok! this is the low down so far!

I've just been on the phone to Karen, she says a fax is coming through to the department,
"and there are going to be big changes as the new merger has resulted in some job losses and pay cuts!"
well the news spread like wild fire!

It was 5:35 and everyone was off to "the blue bird" for a drink,
I was sitting at my desk with the confidence of one who is certain that all the buzz has nothing to do with me!

Well I could see Dee and the rest around the fax machine talking in hushed tones about what was going to happen! I smiled to myself :)

and then, there was a sudden silence! I heard a gasp! and turned and they were all looking at me.........

Noooooooooooooooo! IT CAN'T BE!!!!!! there must be some mistake.... I had heard from a " most reliable" source.....

(a story I made up to go with my office scene!)

Re-ment goodies! and Ikea :)

I had some ikea furniture, and I had tried spray painting some of them, and I couldn't get a nice even finish, so I decided not to spray paint the sofa set, better safe than sorry:)

This is a lounge area next to my re-ment kitchen, I used the blue ikea sofa set and re-ment from the beauty storage set.

On the shelves in the background are re-ment from the Is Dinner ready? Mum, Fun Meals and Kawaii kitchen Sets!

The rug and orange cushions on the sofas are also ikea! the pink cushions were bought, as my attempt at handmaking cushions, resulted in a mess :)

The carton of milk, the glass and cups are re-ment
