A Little of This and That..

So..... I made a couple of Lion heads out of polymer clay. And I used a coffee straw from 7-11 to poke a hole through the mouth. When I originally bought the pendant... I had the same idea as many of you- Turning it into a miniature fountain..... But if you're lazy like me, you'll just use it as an accessory...

I did 5 in the same color, but I won't bore you with all the pictures... But these 2 were some of my favorites:) I did 2 whole ones... 2 that are 'broke' on one side... and then one that is just the face.... I will have a couple of these listed in Etsy sometime next week. ((At some point today I need to get my butt in gear... I've got to drive to West Virginia tomorrow to pick up Cora from camp... then onto DC to get the boys.... and then back home:) No trips planned this time, just A lot of driving! Yuck!

But before you go, I thought I'd share 2 new tins I bought from the thrift store.... Couldn't pass up the image on this one.... Makes me want to mosaic something! Love all the colors!

I also picked up this one.... Couldn't leave it behind.... Goes with my other store cans:)

And then there's this picture I ordered off Etsy from
http://www.etsy.com/shop/MyDollhousePictures . It reminds me of one my Mother has had since I can remember. Hopefully I can remember to take a picture of the one at her house when I'm home..... This one is in the parents bedroom in Cora's house..... This is one of the rooms that I still need to put back together... But I couldn't help showing it to you:) The bed is one of the first things I crackled in miniature:) One day I'll actually get around to hanging stuff up in here. For the picture I just balanced the frame on the back of the bed.

Hope you've enjoyed my pictures.... I sure do like having someone to share them with:)
SO... until next time....

Katie, I always enjoy your photos and your writing....The latest lion heads are glorious! Perfect for fountains. The yellow bedroom is so cheerful! It would be fun to wake up to every morning.

The lion heads are lovely. I'm so pleased that you managed to make some that stayed together! I couldn't have resisted those tins either - images of a time gone by. I love them! And I'm so pleased to find that I'm not the only one who has lots of things that I still need to do on houses that are supposedly 'finished'. The bed looks so comfortable though, and so summery in that lovely soft yellow. Judith x

I agree I love that bed and the fabric too!
