Good morning everyone ....although I guess it's no longer correct terminology these days when you could be reading this from the other side of the world just before bedtime. In my world it's morning & a great one at that.....
As you may all know my prize for winning 2nd place in the Greenleaf SpringFling contest was a $250 coupon for anything in the store and as they had a 24hour sale, I couldn't leave my decision any longer. It took me at least 2 hours to make up my mind between all the lovely houses, accessories, furniture and lighting that was on offer.
Like most of you, I'm sure... after a few years into this hobby there just isn't much display room left. However these days, as I do most of my reading on a tablet, I have given away more and more of my books and as my bookcase shelves are starting to gather nothing but dust, the thought came to me that those empty shelves would be perfect for displaying my houses. Both my Fishing Hut (SpringFling 2010) and my HarvestHome (2012)
There's only one drawback .....of course there's always one LOL and that's finding the time to ensure these houses get the attention they deserve.
I've had a bread box sitting on a kitchen shelf for over 2 years, waiting to be turned into a vintage kitchen on baking day..... cowboy attire and a OOAK mule waiting for a western scene.... flower kits, patio furniture and garden statues to be turned into a secret garden.... a half finished Christkindlmarkt stand and another Christmas 4-part scene and lately a OOAK Frau Holle waiting her turn to shake out her feather beds and cover the world below her into a winter wonderland.
You can't say that I don't have my work cut out for me!
On another note, Caterina sent me an email invitation to take part in her Christmas swap...
