What's Up?

Since I am down to the finish line on the cottage, I thought that I would show you the possibilities for what's next.

This is not all....Just part of what I still have to do.  Remember.  The more projects you have scheduled, the longer you live...

There are a couple of things up on the plant ledge....I am not going up there to take photos.  One is a wooden terrarium.  Another is a cheese dome(1/4" scale scene).

The inside top of the closet has four projects in the works.  The glass terrarium just has to have something put inside.  It has been used several times.  Behind that, a small corner box, and behind that, a large corner box.  Then there is the leopard skin print gift bag.  It just needs something inside. 

As we move to the right, there is a small Ballhagen box that is also finished.  Periodically, it gets taken out, furnished and displayed....Just depends on when I have a place to put it.

Beneath that is the little wooden slat box that I used to display baskets in, before they outgrew the box.  Again, it just needs filling.  I guess that one could hang on a wall.  It was hanging in the kitchen.

No!  I am not going back to the Clockwork cottage right away.  Not enough room to do it right now.

Next we have four boxes that could potentially be room scenes.  I have my Egyptian Archeologist's office in a curved top one.

Then there is the half inch house.....No.  That's not a tower.  It's a coffee grinder that I use for fimo.
Then there is the Russian Cottage and the Weaver's Cottage...

Mind you....I didn't show you the various gift bags and other odd containers that are scattered around.
I do have a couple pieces in the bedroom attic shelf.

The round hatbox is one that I used to display hats at  shows years ago.

The black box next to it is something military that my father in law gave to me years ago...I still have not figured out what to display in that one.

Now do you see my dilemma?  Where do I start next...Oh! I forgot the two house kits under the bed and a couple of other containers out in the garage....I think that I need to go lie down now....I am in overload mode.

See you tomorrow.

You certainly have enough projects to last you for a few years. Just wait for the inspiration. I had forgotten a few of those you mentioned.

Phyllisa, as I said, right now I have no space big enough to work on it. It is just going to have to wait until I mess things up again!LOL

Guess that answered my question! Lol From the looks if it you'll live for a very very long time! I personally say the terrarium. But then again i have an obsession with glass like structures like that..whered get urs from? Or u have any suggestions for me to get something like that? I have a catalog from H. Potter that has gorgeous glass terrariums in it. Some quite expensive tho. Got my eye on a 98$ one. Guess we'll see. But figured id ask u in the mean time if u had suggestions. Love the cottage. Can't wait to see what's next! Viva la Casey!

Kris, I got that. One at Walmart about ten years ago for about ten dollars.Keep your eye out at garden centers in any store. I have also found a couple in thrift shops. Good luck.

nice stuff you have to pick from, but the clockwork cottage really catches my eye!

I would love to see the 1/4" cheese dome project. Will there be a tiny Tessie too?

Whatever you decide will be fun to see...

Coffe grinder for fimo?

Caseymini said...

Molly, if I have a small amount of poly clay to soften, rather than drag out the pasta machine, I run it through the coffee grinder for a short time. I have that and a mini food processor to do the job. I picked them up at garage sales for a dollar each. I like the food processor best, but I found the coffee grinder first.

Hi Casey! My vote is for the Weaver's Workshop. I was wondering where it had gone, and I do so love Tudor style. Are you going to ask Tessie and Zar for their input? That will surely start some fireworks:) Happy planning!
