I did not have a lot of time for myself this week-but I did manage to get a few things done.  I am feeling like working on the steampunk dollhouse again--I've got to face the construction of the wheels sooner or later!  I saved up the tins my hubby's almonds come in after he was finished and I finally have 6 of them.  I am going to make a track system around 3 of them on each side of the house- kind of like a tank.  Here is some of the tins in progress- still lots more to do on them.
 My Marie doll had some more work done on her wig.  I started to add flowers- I want to add much more but they take time to make, so not too far on this yet.
 Here is Marie and her friend lounging in the craft room with all their tables of treats.  Lots more treats to make too.
 I made some more macaroons and some heart shaped cookies.  The cake was made for me by my sweet friend Patricia from
 Susie Mae has a new addition to her room- a sweet folding Barbie house with Barbie doll!!  This is a Hallmark ornament that I found on ebay that I could not resist- isn't it cute??!
 I also glued her shelf to the wall and there is a fishtank on her nightstand that was a gift from a sweet childhood friend.
That is it for this week- I really hope to get more done on the wig soon and maybe start getting the wheels attached to the steampunk dollhouse.  If only I didn't have to go to work!  Have a super week :)

I love Marie's hair. That cannot have been easy to make those curls and the little flowers are so cute! I love your macaroons! They look delicious! Great idea to make wheels out of your husband's nut cans! I think you accomplished a lot for a person who works all day! Oh, and that little Barbie house is so special. I've never seen one like that!

Kim said...

Ascension- sending you hugs and Happy Halloween wishes to you and all your witches :) xxxoooo

Ara- thank you! I've reserved myself some "me" time to work on the wheels this weekend- I'm hoping to maybe get them attached to the house. It feels good to be excited about the wheels instead of dreading them :)

Lucille- you are so sweet. Thank you! I just happened to stumble across that little barbie ornament- and I won the auction at only $5 so I thought it was an okay deal :) Happy Fall!!

Marie Antoinette's wig is looking awesome! I love the Barbie house. It is so incredibly sweet. I can see why you got it. This Steampunk house is going to be remarkable.

Hi Kim, I have missed quite a fair bit on your wonderful blog but I have read those posts I missed all the way to July when I last left off :).

You have done and made so many wonderful additions. Another dollhouse? 2 dolls (by the way, I absolutely love them. Marie's friend looks like someone from your painting and Marie, wow, I love her hair!

And that macaroon? A roaring success!
