HUGE Update

Hello! I’m back!

Welcome to all of my new readers from around the world! A big thank you to Jennifer of Braymere Custom Saddlery for mentioning me on her blog.

While I was away, I finished the whole bottom floor and made a big dent into the second floor. Want a look?

The first floor:

^^I love the desk. ^^

Anyway, I also made Anna a four-poster bed from paper tubes. Yes, it is possible.

That’s the ribbon I want to use to put the curtains on and that’s (kinda) how they’ll look.

So, I think you’re desperate to know what the floor above looks like now. Well, here it is:

This was on some really awesome paper I found in the deep, dark depths of my old craft drawers.

Lisa really likes her new bedroom.

This is an in-progress photo of the shelving unit that is now finished. I’ve since made progress on her wardrobe, but I haven’t got any photos – YET! *dun-dun-dunnn*

Anyway, must keep going, BYE!!

BCS Winter Photo Challenge

I am a BIG fan of Jennifer Buxton’s blog, Braymere Custom Saddlery, so when I saw this my reaction was: “I MUST DO THIS.”

So. Shall we begin?

1. Vintage

Girlie1

Girlie was made in 2001, and released in 2002, so she’s my oldest model! Therefore, she is vintage.

2. Nekkid

Laura offside

I bought a body on this mould today, so she will be nekkid, does that count?

3. Scale issues

Fergus&Yakuchi3

“Ooohh, what’s this?”

4. I see spots

Spots7

Me, too. 😉

5. Unbridled passion

Lilly + Duke2

Yay for un-realistic photos!

6. Rare breed

Hansel6-Under the Spotlight

According to a Google search, Black Forest horses are rare. And I own two. *evil smile*

7. Portrait

IMG_6524

8. Conga

Royal & Patch2

I have a few customs done by myself that form mini congas. (see what I did there?)

9. The great outdoors

IMG_6587

‘Great’? Sometimes.

10. Best in Show

The Family5

Do you see in the bottom-left corner? That’s a first place ribbon. That Snatchcorn stole from me.

I hope that all the photos are relatively within category, and thanks so much for doing this Jennifer!! There should be far more things like this out there.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy and good luck to everyone else who has entered!

Happy Australia Day!

What’s that?

IMG_6602

Lamingtons?

IMG_6601

You know what this means…..

IMG_6600

Australia Day!!

IMG_6603

I made all the tack in these photos. I have some Australian flag fabric so I cut one out and glued it around a wooden dowel for Yoshi’s flag.

IMG_6604

Fergus’s Arabian halter is all in green and gold, with yellow tassels.

IMG_6605

The top tassels on the sides and the tassel on the throatlash (that you can’t see) all have beads on them.

IMG_6606

Empress’s halter is in Aboriginal colours. The flag has two horizontal stripes, one red and one black and there is a yellow circle in the centre.

Happy Australia Day, Tiny Horse Talk readers and enjoy your lamingtons!

It’s So Wet

But the bonus of rain is model horse photography opportunities!

I took Ace, Spice and Spotts out and this is what I came back with:

IMG_6566  IMG_6570

IMG_6571  IMG_6573

IMG_6574  IMG_6575

IMG_6577
‘OMG-I’m-freezing-can-I-go-inside-now?

IMG_6578

IMG_6579  IMG_6580

IMG_6582  IMG_6583

IMG_6584  IMG_6586

IMG_6587  IMG_6588

IMG_6590

Ace is the Appaloosa in the first few photos, Spotts is the next Appy and Spice is the palomino who is, what a surprise, actually another Appaloosa.

The chairs are finished, I just haven’t got photos yet. I just need a computer and cash register, and THE WHOLE BOTTOM LEVEL IS BASICALLY DONE. YAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAY!!!

Chairs & Tables

I’ve been doing a lot over the last 3 days for the dollhouse, including crafts.

IMG_6550

I finished both tables, above is the kitchen table and below is the office table.

IMG_6551

It’s just a long, white table.

IMG_6552

It’s got cut toothpicks in between the legs for support…

IMG_6553

…and beads for the feet.

IMG_6554

The kitchen table is just a few pieces of paperboard on top of four paper tubes.

IMG_6555  IMG_6556

I also made a proto-type chair.

IMG_6557

really like it.

IMG_6558

It’s fiddly to make, but it’s really detailed, and professional looking.

IMG_6559

That’s the underside.

IMG_6560

The dolls sit well on the chair as well.

IMG_6561

So this chair passed all the tests to go into production!!

IMG_6562

Success! They’re actually nearly finished, but still success!!

IMG_6563

These are the pre-cut squares that will be used to make seat ‘cushions’.

IMG_6564

I really like the fabric. It’s thick and colourful and it looks really nice with the downstairs decor. I wish I had a photo but I don’t. I will definitely show you when I get one.

Bye!!
