My friends and family have been overly generous as usual. I received a parcel from Mini Modern that was so thoughtful it made me squeal. There were a ton of goodies in there, but in particular, four Paris Renfroe wishbone chairs.How lucky am I since I was just about to order some from Paris. He hasn't listed them on his site yet, but he's posted a message on Flickr if you want to get your hands on some.
Thank you Dear Friend. We miss you!
Hubby spoiled me rotten. I received a Proxxon drill press/milling machine from him.
I have never used one before. Don't actually know how to use one so I'm relying on the expertise of the more experienced miniaturists out there to give me guidance. I feel a lot of You Tube tutorial time ahead. Now the question is, where do I put it? My kitchen is already looking like a hobby tool catalog has thrown up all over it.
I'm just about ready to start making some items for the inside of my shed. I'm hoping to get Danny Shotton's tools in there before the next millennium. I'm stuck with the door latch...don't know what to make or what will look right for an old shed like this.
That's my messy, real garden in the background...
I've really enjoyed doing the landscaping for this. It's getting there. The weathering never seems to be finished. It's hard to put down your paintbrush and say 'Okay, I think that is enough'
Right, I'm off to Scotland for a couple of days for some down time. Have a great weekend wherever you are
