Snow in the Cairngorms

We are going to be there in three weeks and I cannot wait - but look at the snow from these videos on You Tube :

Best Quote Ever !

I have been following a photographer's blog for a while and today I found the following quote on her blog which I think is one of the best quotes I have ever heard - and I just love it:
“Women are Angels. And when someone breaks our wings, we continue to fly … on a broomstick. We’re flexible that way.”
I contacted Kristin today to ask if I could possibly use the quote and luckily she said yes - a big thank you Kristin. Here's a link to Kristin's blog and the actual posting - her blog is wonderful and she has some amazing photographs on there:

Witchy books and jar

I was lucky enough to purchase some books and a wonderful glass jar from Kat the Hat Lady and these arrived this week. They look fabulous and go so well in the witchy room. Thanks Kat.

The next photo shows the books and jar in place. You will also see scrolls,books and pumpkins from Nikki (Witch & Wizard Miniatures) and one of Kat's hats and also some other jars from Kat. The room is slowly coming on but still needs quite a lot doing. I want to paint some of the furniture but daren't until I've practised a bit more. The walls need changing but I love the floor - was happy how that turned out.

Wii - what a sight!!!!

Well, I stayed the same this week weightwise and dragged out the Wii Fit and have used it each day. However today I closed the blinds so no-one could see 'cos I imagine it's not a pretty sight with legs and arms flailing all over!!! My first exercise involved flapping arms like a bird!!!

I have now decided that I am going to try and make a wii fit board and console for the dolls house - not sure how but am sure it will come together.

Sunday 7 February 2010

My goodness the time flies when you get older!!! Sorry not posted for a while but so busy working. Didn't win the lottery this weekend so it's back to work tomorrow!
Not a lot has been happening apart from having a bit of a sort out in the house. I have been doing a little bit of work on my dolls house (only a teeny bit though!). I bought a bin from Delph miniatures and decided to try and authenticate it a bit more......................

I also made some little poppies before Christmas - my first time ever - they are not the best but I am quite happy with them at the moment.......

I have only just realised that I have another two followers and I apologise for not noticing - Nikki Rowe (http://nikkinikkinikki72.blogspot.com/). Nikki has other blogs and sites and you will find those links on her blog - she creates the most amazing miniatures and my other follower is minicrotchetmad (http://minicrochetmad.blogspot.com/) another very talented person. Hello to you both.

Hubby and I are off to Aviemore in March and will be celebrating our Silver Wedding Anniversary whilst there (25 years married and 31 years together!!!) We try and go up there at least twice a year. Hopefully there will still be lots of snow when we get there. I am hoping to buy another camera before we go (well maybe......maybe not!).
