Mini gifts

I was so lucky to win a wonderful giveaway from Nataliegayleminiatures this week :)   Couldn't quite believe my luck.  My little parcel arrived on Thursday and they are just beautiful - two little boxes that open, a handbag (much needed) and a shabby chic coat rack (again much needed).  Once again thank you Natalie :) If you haven't seen Natalie's blog take a peek.

Hello to new followers

I'm really sorry but have been negligent in saying hello to new followers - so hello (I can't see blogs for some of you!)

    When we went to York fair I purchased a brick mould from Malcolm's Miniatures to use on Wee Witchy Cottage.  I started it yesterday and today have painted it and put a wash on as per the instructions.  Quite pleased with how it's turned out - this is the first time I've done anything like this!  The photo shows the front of the cottage and the chimney and I had only just put the wash on when I photographed it.  Don't think putting it on a cream carpet to photograph was a good idea :) hubby's face was a picture!!   I think the bricks could have done with some more colour.

    Postman has been

    Ooh the postman has just been with another little miniature suprise for me!!!   Needs a bit of work before I can show it - hopefully later today :)

    This n that!

    Just thought I would do a quick update!! First of all my weight :(  I have put weight on this week that's because I have been on holiday and eating Danish pastries!!!  Why did I do that??  Because they were so yummy!  Also had a few meals out which were all delicious but this morning I am kicking myself for allowing myself to put the weight on.  Anyway I am back on Weightwatchers with a vengeance.  

    The good news though is I have finally got my shoes on !!!  Haven't been able to wear shoes apart from one old pair because of my broken toe.  The toe is still a bit red and swollen but it felt so good being able to wear shoes again and yesterday managed to get my trainers on too so now no excuses :)
