No more (ahem, additional) projects. Right? (laughing). This year, my building was going to be an 18th century English cottage/Georgian with a saddlery shop on the first floor catering to fox hunters. To kill some time while waiting for our dog to be finished at the vet, my husband and I went to breakfast and still had some time after that. So we went to a resale shop we had never been to, just down the street from the vet. We walked around and when we came to the washing machines, I stopped. My mind was processing something I thought I saw on the floor as we came in. A dollhouse? Had to have been a Barbie house. Or something like that. Plastic? I went back and examined it. No, it was wood and 1:12 scale. The more I looked, the more I liked it. Then told myself I did not NEED another project. To leave it there. The lady working there said it was $50 and came with a bag of furniture. FOOOM! It was in my car. The dog had to share the seat with it going home.
The black cat needed a Halloween Pumpkin. I'm a fan of Sugarcharmshop on You Tube and used her method of making a polymer clay Jack O Lantern. Got a flicker LED tea candle at the dollar store and took it apart to see how it worked. I got it to work in the lantern and the battery can be changed. It's not finished though. Still have to do some work with acrylic paints and shading and then seal it with glaze.
