The more of the peacock blue I put in, the more I like it. I think that Giac is right. The gray is dull...
I am thinking a golden yellow color of some kind. Still undecided..
I think that I am going to keep plodding along and finish the peacock blue first
I made my usual stop at Goodwill, on the way home from town.
I am now the proud owner of this... Do I need another tower. Did I want another tower...
Answer... Not until I saw this birdcage! I love the shape. I am going to have to think about what it is to be.
Maybe Tessie, Zar and Spike can come up with something...
http://www.miniatures.com/Creatin-Contest-W1826.aspx contacted me. They wanted to know if I would like a free kit for the contest that they run every year. They know I don't enter, but I often buy the kit if it's something I can use. I don't often enter any kinds of contests. Just not my thing.
The kit that they are putting out this year is a good sized building and has a curved roof. Very interesting. All I have to do is talk a bit about the contest as I do the build...
I noticed that Brae over at Otterine's blog is also doing it... She always enters the contest, so she has to do two. That's more than I want to do.
I don't know how many bloggers they contacted. It will be interesting to see how many people do it just for fun.
I will probably try to finish the cottage and observatory and then the next thing will be the HBS kit. They told me that they would probably be shipping them starting this week.(update, I was just notified that the kit has been shipped.) Thus the book. The building looks very mid century mod to me.
Good Luck to Brae and all of the other contestants.
I am going to do mine at my leisure. And you will get to come along for the ride.
See you tomorrow.
