where I ramble on about what's happening in my little world
and hopefully you have some enjoyment reading about it!



not exactly a mini!!

Holidays are over & littlun is back to school today and I'm back to 'normal' once more (if there is such a thing) I feel quite strange bumping into myself again and thought 'oooo hello, I remember you'!!.... I get so engrossed in whatever it is thats happening, that I forget anything else exists, which Im sure is possibly a good thing in some scenarios?? anyway.... I'm waffling.... I think the point Im trying to get at is - I've been absent from blogland for most of the summer, and also from my workroom :o( but I plan on rectifying this as soon as possible as I have some ideas that need to come out of the holding pen cos they're giving me a headache LOL I think that after I get the next batch of commissions out of the way that I'm going to put some stuff in my Etsy shop and then concentrate on my school of majick as I'm in need of a playtime fix. I think Hagatha would like her school up & running again too!!!

I thought you might like to see some of the places I visited in France. In between sunbathing & vino consumption, (honestly I didnt touch a drop from that bottle!) I seem to have had a thing for architectural detail this summer, and got looked at oddly many times by hubbs when photographing various windows & doors but heyho, tis not his fault he doesnt 'get it' LOL but all these buildings just begged to be considered in mini versions!
ok, the next ones are from a theme park called Puy Du Fuo, I didnt time travel or find random medieval villages on my travels LOL
I'd love to make this out of a big carpet roll or similar, it opened up to reveal a couple of floor levels within - I didnt get to snap them tho :(the last pic is from a small village called Talmont, which had wild hollyhocks growing everywhere and made me come over all pink and girlie inspiring me to want to make something shabby chic, you never know, it might happen one day LOL What my travels and happy snapping has done tho, is make me realise my love for old buildings & the quirky bits that make them different, especially when the doors and windows arent lined up or a size you'd expect. Maybe this is why I want to hurry up and finish the projects I've got on the go at the moment? I want to build a higgledy piggledy house!!
I also took some pics in the Martell Cognac factory... oh it smelt wonderful in there all oaky and cognacky ...... sorry drifted! there was a display in miniature built to show it in a perspective angle, but I'll save them for another day. Hope I havnt bored you all too much..... off to make MORE pumpkins.... I think I'm nearly pumpkinned out! ;o)
