Pull Horse

Thank you all for nice warm welcoming words on my last post and the compliments, they warmed my heart.

On our weekly mum-daughter night we made a little pull horse .
The horse is from a broken plastic carousel(Christams ornament).
We painted it with acrylic paint and now it looks like wood.
We used a little woodsy and drill a hole in it , painted it and beads for weels glued to a piece of coctail stick, a piece of string with a little bead is tied on the woodsy and the toy was ready.

My mum's toy is the one with the red weels and mine has purple weels.

I am looking forwar to Saterday, my mum and i go to shop for miniatures at a miniature fair  poppenhuizenbeurs in Rijswijk

Sorry and embroidery

Sorry  for not posting here for more then 3 months.
Sometimes real life is busy and there is hardly time for making mini's.
In the summer i was a lot outside in the sun, with a piece of needlework or crochet work in miniature but also big. We also made a lot of trips.
I finaly finished these two embroidery pieces for my mum.
They are a lot bigger on the photo the in real.
The left one is only 2,5 cm tall.
On these big photo's it looks like the frames are not connected in the corners but in real you don't see that.
I finally finished the rooftiles on my big dollshouse too.
I am now finally working on the give-away i promised earlier.
I welcome all the new followers and a big hug to all my blogfriend, i did not forget you....

A apple a day keeps the doctor away

 My mum and i, even when we make the same fruit, it still looks diffrent.
 We used the same color fimo.
Tinted it with calk before baking.
After baking and cooling down, we give it a coat of gloss varnish.
 My mum made pears. (sorry for the blurry photo)
 I made paprika's.
 I love the colors together.
 I made a half crate of little tomatoes.
 I did not glue the boxes to the cart yet, so i can change the combination if i want.
Do you like it so far?
Any questions....please don't be shy and ask.

Banana boxes and a greengrocer.

My mum and i glued together the bananaboxes that i printed earlier.
I saw them at a site more then a year ago and printed them on my work.
Sorry girls and guys, i don't remember were they from.
If you have them on your site or know were you can find them, please let me know.
Then we painted a part of the inside a matching color.
So you don't see the white when they are filled.
 I made a little crate also and ofcourse my mother is 10 or better say 20 steps ahaid and she made the perfect man to sell her fruit and veggies.
 She made him out of Fimo with a flexable body.
 Dressed him with a nice sweater, jeans and a cap. all made by herself.
 Look at his shoes aren't they fit for standing a long time?
She used barbie shoes and painted them.
 He has a moustache (and hair) from real hair.
 I love how she made his jeans, they even got pockets.
 I have to make a man or woman too for my cart, but i don't think mine is a beautiful as this guy.
I am not good in making dolls.
But i give it a try anyway.
You only get better in doing things by practice it a lot.
Bey bey, see you next time.
