A rose is a rose is a....






Made my first attempt on making roses... I cheated a bit though. The flowers are Mulberry paper roses but the foliage I made myself.

YEAHHHH....

Look who was waiting at my doorstep when I came home from work. A very little and very very tired Dannie Boy... He had made it!!... He had finally found his way to his new home in Denmark. He is absolutely loveable and if it wasn´t because he almost fell asleep when I took him in my hand, I would have made him a prober meal and asked him to tell every tiny detail of his trip. From the moment he left Bea and untill he arrived at our doorstep...
But instead I found an old tinbox and made him a soft and warm bed.... It didn´t take many seconds before he dozed of to dreamland. Guess I´ll have to wait to hear his story untill tomorrow....


Isn´t he a cute tiny fellow?

More...






More inspiration...





I´m sick with the flu and have spend most of the day on the couch surfing for inspiration. These are some of the pictures I´ve found. I´m not quite sure yet, but I´m thinking of putting in a bathtub in the other end of the greenery. I have an old brass bathtub which would be lovely in a green setting. Maybe you have seen Susannes? It´s the same bathtub. Susannes father bought one for us both many years ago...

The secret garden...





A few pictures of my latest project The Secret Garden. I just show you one end of the greenery since I haven´t worked on the rest and I´m still a bit uncertain how I want to decorate it. The wine in the corner is my first attempt on making a climping plant. I used leaves in 3 different sizes and 182 of them. 181 in the wine and one on the floor. They are cut, painted on both sides and shaped with a needle and then glued on. Just need some grapes now to hang from the branches. I still don´t think the wine is big and wild enough. I need a lot more of climping plants, think I´ll have a go with roses next time.

I want the garden to be overgrown with plants and moss, like it havn´t been groomed and looked after for decades. Not all forgotten, there are things indicating that someone still pays the garden a visit once and a while...

Spring cleaning...




I have done a little bit of spring cleaning and redecorating in the Master bedroom when a sudden impulse made me repaint the bed and the dresser. I like that it´s got a more feminine touch now. Still a lot of details that´s not finished in the room though. I need some new bedding, seeting for the chair, redecorating the trunk, lightning and more...

A traveller on his way...

I´m waiting impatiently for this precious boy to arrive at my address. His name is Dannie Boy and his a new member of our family. He is adopted from Bea in Germany. Hope his travel to Denmark will succeed this time, he´s been on his way one time already but got lost, and returned to Bea.

New pics




Just a few new shots of what I´m previous working at.... increasing my stock for the Miniature festival in Farum Copenhagen. I really enjoy working with paper and cardboard, and especially due to the fact that the materials are so cheap.
Now I´m off to work... have a nice day folks!

Miniature masquerade....





I have always had a dream of being invited to a masquerade ball, wondering which mask to wear for a magical decadent evening....
Masks will be listed on the Gypsy Boudoir Webshop and also sold at the Farum Fair.
