Birdsbaths...





This is my first attempt at making birdbaths for my miniature garden projects... And I´m actually pretty satisfied and now I´m thinking of making a hole range of different sizes, shapes and colors.

This miniature garden is made in a rusty well ring that was to be thrown away, when we had some work done at our sewer last year. Don´t ever throw out stuff (not even the bigger ones) they might come in handy for miniature one day ;0) I have to visit the garden center to look for dwarf trees and plants for this garden. And my mum to get some dwarf ferns...

What the mailman brought....





Yesterday I received these magical potion bottles from Glenda. Thanks Glenda for your very generous gift. The bottles are going to be in my wierd curiousity/dining-room with Henry-the-hat-skull... I think one of the bottles contains a bit of air from a distant magical world, the others has mysterious ingredients unknown to me....

Thanks again Glenda...The mailman will soon bring you some small items in return...

New arrivels and a blog...





Yesterday I recieved a few garden things that I´ve been waiting for, to continue my outdoor miniature garden project... I really love the roses arch, the fenches and the furnitures. Now there is just waiting for it to get the patinated and rusty look that I love... Time and weather will eventually do the work for me.

I want to share The Mini Garden Guru´s blog with you. Janit is the owner and gardener of TwoGreenThumbs and a new blogfriend of mine :0)

Gypsy caravan inspiration...






Genevieve is making a gypsy caravan, she has chosen a very bright gypsy color range. Seeing Genevieves new painted caravan made me remembered an old magazine with interiors in the same range of colors. Genevieve...Hope you can find a bit of inspiration from the photos :0)

Busy week...


Having a very busy week, but I hope to find a quiet moment or two to relax with some mini-ing. Above is a couple of old chairs that I painted yesterday and my favorite color hydrangeas...

Miniature gardening and an award...



I love gardening and have a very large one in 1:1 scale. As if one garden is not enough I wanted one more... in a smaller scale though. All plants are found in the big garden. I´ll have to buy some mini Thyme and other small scale plants to finish it. I´m absolutely certain that this won´t be the last garden inside the garden. Already found more planters to fill with miniature garden life...
I´ll share my miniature garden inspiration with you:
I´ve recieved an award, Thank you Lara... I´ll follow up later on giving it to 10 other bloggers.

Corset making...





I bought some beautiful corsets a while ago for my sensual shop, and I love them! When my mum (who used to be a seemstress) saw them, she immidiately went home and made a few miniature corsets for herself. She loves the process of handstitching and enjoys the making of corsets in her comfy chair by the window. Now I´ve got quite a range of corsets and my mum already has a new "delivery" for Susanne and I, waiting for me to pick up.

I´m planning on creating a corset making loft in Obsidian Hall one day, and inspired by Nikkis Hat making table, I took some photos of a collection of the items going in that room...

Witchcraft...

I wanted to share this fantastic picture with my witchy inspired miniature friends, though it is not miniature but 1:1 scale. As a pagan I have a lot of pagan and witchy friends. The picture is taken by a frind of mine Bo Lyng Christensen at a witches gathering in Denmark.
