Well things just keep getting better & better.
The other day I received this month's magazine; as soon as I saw the cover I knew it was something I had to make.You can buy it as a kit form as well but with the exchange rate & the shipping costs, it just becomes too expensive! The next day my girlfriend & I went thrift store browsing and look what she found for me:It's absolutely perfect. I'd only need to add a different top & bottom so I could have the 4 little outer scenes. Then yesterday I found a tutorial to make an "iron material" look ...because I sure can't afford that stove either!
Then in addition to all that I won Robin Andreae's Noel the mouse on ebayWouldn't it look fabulous pulling a Santa sleigh!
Hmmmm lets see that's two more to add to my Christmas projects list. I think I've now got enough for the next 5 years.
This year I'm making a Christkindl market stall. CDHM had a tutorial Saturday on how best to make "Lebkuchen", the German gingerbread; I've bought all kinds of great wooden ornament kits to go into the stall. Guess I'd better get started ...only 46 days til Christmas!!

Oh BTW, during our browse we also found this itemIt used to be a candle holder but I thought it would look perfect outside my winter garden that's on my summer project to-do list.
Got all my flowers finished for the rusty tub scene too.


  1. Hi Karin,

    Where did you find the "iron material" tut? Lucky find at the thrift store! Can't wait to see what you do with it.

  2. Tu cabeza no para. Unos proyectos muy interesantes.
    El ratoncito tirando del trineo una idea genial.
    Espero ver tus avances.
