Fleamarked...






Yesterday we had a local fleamarked in my village. I spend almost 40 dollars on a few things... Nothing related to mini though, but the cabinet is going to be used for mini-materials. I´ve cleaned it and put oil on the old stickers to remove them. Think I´m going to paint or stain it...

I don´t have any room for the sofa, so for now it´s storage in the garage. It cost me 16 dollars.
I also bought a few old lacepieces, a glassthing, some rusty keys and a handsculpted doll by a danish doll artist.

More bags...



Found a small piece of smooth thin leather, that I got from Susanne almost 20 years ago and made the black bag of it. For the brown bag I´ve used leather from pig, it´s thin but more stiff. The bag with chain handle is the faux leather. It looks more shiny and plastic.
I´ve really love making these bags, they are so much fun. But I ran out of superglue and had to stop my project. Hope to be able to get more glue in the local supermarked today.
Have a nice friday everyone...

Leather bags...


Inspired by a photo I found and Ira´s bags, I´ve tried to make my own design. The bag on the stool is my first and it´s made of fake leather. I really like the size and shape of it. The second one I made is genuine leather, thicker that the fake, and the shape is not as good as the first I made.

Flowers for Flora...


I made a little flower and candlelight arrangement for Flora, just to say thanks a lot for the giveaway. Hope the blue and white theme can go in one of her miniature settings. The white flowers are made from the silk paper that was wrapped around Floras giveaway. It´ll return to Italy used in a new way...

Oh...wow!!!





I still cannot believe my luck. Look what the mailman brought to me.... all the way from Flora in Italy. I was magical to open the package and reveal all the small gifts inside followed by a sweet and fruity scent. All carefully and beautifully wrapped. The things are even more pretty that the pictures shows. Such delicately detailed beauties. Thanks a million Flora for your generous giveaway...

Geraniums and new furnitures...


Spending af few days off from mini-ing enjoying time with friends and family. Today I woke up to pouring rain and felt like doing some geraniums. The furnitures are for the Gypsy Boudoir Shop. I love both, so I won´t make any changes exept from changing the fabric on the tiny stool.

Welcome...

A warm welcome to new followers of Obsidian Hall: Angeles, Mar, Daydreamer. Wanda, Il Cucchiaino Magico and Luna45. Hope you´ll enjoy your stay...
