My friend Zlatica from http://pupaart.blogspot.com is an incredible artist. Zlatica recently made some business cards with a picture from a painting she did- one of my favorite paintings she has done! When I mentioned it would make a wonderful size for a painting in my dollhouse Zlatica was sweet enough to send me one! I was so excited to get it in the mail last week that I had to make a frame for it right away- it will eventually hang in Amelie's candy house. Here is Zlatica's business card- isn't it beautiful?
I did a small bit of work on the candy house this last weekend. Does anyone else feel like they work and work on their project and then the result is so small? I did not feel like I got too far this last weekend- but at least I did get the strawberry patch weeded again so they won't be choked out with weeds. I have a secret...we have had 6 banty chicks we have been taking care of in the house in a spare room. They are big now so I have 6 banty chickens we are trying to integrate with the big red Rhode Island hens out in the chicken coop. I'll have to take pics to show you soon- has anyone else tried keeping banty hens with bigger hens? Will they fight? I looked on the internet and saw people keeping banty's and Rhode Island Red Hens together- but I'm still nervous about it. For now we have them seperated in the coop, but so they can see each other in the hopes that they will get used to each other this way first.
http://papillonbleuuk.blogspot.com. Amelie is excited work is finally being done on her new house. I did some more siding on the house, started adding cookies to the dormer windows and started getting the balcony on the second floor ready. There will be a lollipop railing soon. Before I go, I bought this little rocking chair at a garage sale for a quarter. It's out of scale, but I'm not 100% concerned with scale in the candy house as I would prefer the furniture to look a bit too big for a little girl like Amelie. I took an xacto knife and whittled the chair down a bit so it did not look quite so clunky and then I painted it and added a little flower printie to the back with painted accents. Here it is in the bedroom of the candy house......so much work yet to be done :)
