Something completly different today

Yeah I know, I terribly neglected my blog this month, BUT I have an excuse ;-)
I have new pets at home and I'm absolutly in love with them.
4 budgies and a dwarf hamster. My former hamster died earlier this month, I loved him, and I was so sad so I decided to give a home to a new one.
She is called Rosalie, born in september, and she's really cute.

And here are my 4 budgies. Greta (white), Kaspar (white-blue), Frau Grün (green) and Henry (yellow). I assumed them from a very nice lady who had become allergic to them and had to give them up.
They are quite noisy, but I love them already =)
I always had budgies when I was a kid and really wanted to have some again =)

So, that's my activity at the moment, but I think I'll find back to miniatures the next days. I'll let you know ;-)
Hugs to all of you!

I'm back from my second fair and it was really great! I think I got a cold, cause we were placed in tents, cause the hall was closed due to an old ceiling beam and it was really cold, but business itself was good.

I wanted to have a day off yesterday. But I was so bored, that I continued crafting :D And so I finally made something completly new I never did before and I'm really pleased with the result!
So here's my new bamboo, completly with roots and everything =)

Hope you like it!

And remember, it's only 2 more days to take part in my giveaway! So if you haven't done so yet, hurry!

Blog Makeover

No, you're not on the wrong blog, I did a makeover =D I was fed up with the green background and so I decided to make it more straight and clear. I think I like it, but you'll never know how long it'll last =D

In fact, I was quite diligent the last days and I managed to make almost everything I wanted for tomorrow. These are the 2 bouquets I also used in my new header.

And I did a new Medinilla Magnifica as I sold my last one in Rothenburg.

I'm so sorry, but I still don't have the pictures of our christmas market, I hope I'll get them soon...

So, wish me good luck for tomorrow =) And if you come around, just say hello =)

Still here...

...but I have so much work to do right now!
The fair in Rothenburg was AWESOME! I met so many friends and so many new people! 
If you want to have a look at it, the local press did a small move, you can watch it here: http://www.ronair.tv/kunstundkultur.php?ID=275
Our exhibition, a christmas market, was even better than last year and I was very pleased with my sales. In fact, I was so pleased, that I really have to struggle now to have enough stuff for the next fair on saturday! That's why I work all day long on my miniatures this week, I just finished my second bunch of flowers for today. I'll take some pictures if the light is better tomorrow.
I have just 2 days left *panic*
And when saturday is over, I'll sit down and watch TV and I'll do absolutly nothing at the same time!
So, I hope I can show you some more pictures tomorrow =)
Good night =)

I just wanted to say bye, I'll be off to Rothenburg tomorrow veeeeery early in the morning...
I'm looking forward to see some good friends of mine there and I'm sure, it'll be a great weekend!
So, see you on monday! I'll post pictures of our christmas market then =)

One more week...

Next week on saturday I'll be in Rothenburg already to prepare everything for the Minimenta on sunday. So I just have one week left for all the things I wanted to do... 


I'll show you some more flower bouquets today I made the last days. I really enjoy making them, I'm always so pleased, when you put all the flowers together and it really looks like a bouquet in the end. =)

And don't forget to take part in my giveaway if you haven't done so yet! =)

Wow, already 87 followers! That's really stunning! Thanks for that!
I would have never thought that so many of you want to take part!

Now, autumn has finally caught up with me... I try to ignore it every year, but as there is the first christmas decoration in stores, I just can't pretend to not see it anymore...
And as I finally finished my seminar paper this noon, I can now proceed to do miniatures again =)
So I did a bowl with autumn flowers and decorative gourds.
Hope you like it =)

Pink Hydrangea

Finally a new post. I'm so sorry I neglect my blog at the moment, but there's so much I have to do in the next 3 weeks, I don't even know where to start. University started last week and all lecturers think, their lessons are the most important and give us tons of homework. I also have to finish, ok, I have to start my seminar paper I should have done 3 weeks ago. And the show in Rothenburg continually approaches. I'm really panicking...
But there's no point in complaining. So I finished this pink hydrangea tonight. A blue one is already in the making.

Mini Mac

Something definitly not shabby today =D
When I saw Mini Dorks post on her blog with the Mini Apple Iphone and MacBook, I was so in love I couldn't resist.
And now I'm a proud owner of a Mini MacBook, an iPad and an iPhone =)
They are just perfect for my modern house!

If you're also intrested, here's the link to lilu by zuri on etsy http://www.etsy.com/shop/lilushop

New oven for the shabby kitchen

Since I was as busy as a bee with all my stuff for sale, I decided it was time to do something for me!
And as my kit for the oven came to the fore, I spent the afternoon with it.
It's made by Phoenix Models and really heavy as it is white metal.
Now I'm finished and quite pleased with the result!
There's still so much work to do in the kitchen but little by little, the bird builds its nest.

Maybe I'll do a chest or something for the empty spot beside it. But I'm not sure...
We'll see =)

As all recent plants they will be sold on my upcoming shows.
Hope you like them :)

Palms and Lilac

As the weather is horrible here the last days, I was quite busy!
I did coco palms

and lilac.

I've also done some tubs with reed and iris, but the casting resin is still drying and so I will show you those tomorrow :)

and on...

I did it.
I covered the hole patch on the right with ivy. That took me 2 days. And the ivy and the roses on the arch another day. No blooming ones, cause it's still springtime in my garden :)
I had to punch every leaf, then cut the stem off, paint the veins, then emboss them and glue a new stem. Approximitly 10000000000 million times. I'll never do that again. At least for the next days :o)
Of course I'll plant some stuff between it, I thought about some columbine, dandelion or grass. And there will be a fern in the rear edge, but I didn't receive the laser cuts yet.

Do you have any suggestions for plants between the ivy?

I think I'll do the pond next, not quite sure how, but we'll see :)

and it goes on and on....

Ich hab so das Gefühl, mit dem Shabby Häuschen nie fertig zu werden... Das is noch so viel, was ich machen will, aber dauernd fehlt die Zeit dafür. 
Heut Zeit ich euch mal das halbfertige Badezimmer. Die Möbel stehn zwar schon drin, aber der ganze Schnickschnack drumrum fehlt noch komplett.
Aber das Bad is auch so schon schön shabby find ich :)

It seems to me, that the shabby cottage is a never ending story. There's still so much to do and so few time to do it. 
Today I want to show you the under construction bathroom. I mean the furniture is already there, but almost everything else is still missing.
But I think it captures the shabby style quite nicely already :)

Crown imperial/Kaiserkrone

Ich nehm mir bis Ende der Woche eine Auszeit von meinen Hausarbeiten an der Uni und hab endlich mal wieder gebastelt :) Diese Kaiserkronen sind das Ergebnis.

I took some time off from my studies and had time to do something in mini :) These crown imperial are the results.

Sonntag, 11. September 2011


Puh, ich hab endlich wieder mal was geschafft. Auch wenn ich jetzt grad wieder eine Bastel-Zwangspause einlegen muss, damit ich meine ganzen Sachen für meine Uni mal fertig mach :(
Die Körbchen haben alle einen Boden mit Rosenstoff beklebt und sind gewickert. Sie werden einen Platz auf meinem Messestand finden :)

I finally managed to do something although I have to quit crafting the next time because I have so much stuff to finish for university :(
All these wickered baskets have a base decorated with floral fabric and they will go on my table for my next miniature show :)

New cuties

Es gab jetzt schon länger nix mehr von mir zu hören, aber ich hab auch absolut nix geschafft, es is einfach zu heiß. Heute hats wieder 35° im Schatten, da geht man doch ein. Papierblätter bleiben eher an den Fingern kleben als da, wo sie hin sollen, da macht das basteln keinen Spaß. Sobalds wieder ein wenig abkühlt, gehts auch am Haus endlich mal weiter. Solang is eben Baustopp.
Hitze hält einen aber nich vom Shoppen ab :D Hab mir bei der Online Miniaturenmesse aminiminiatureshow.weebly.com 2 süße gestrickte Püppchen gekauft, die kamen heute an. Und ich bin total verliebt :)

Haven't posted for a while now, but it's so extremly hot here in Germany, you aren't able to do anything. And if your pieces of paper rather stick to your fingers than where they're supposed to, you don't really fancy doing that... As soon as it gets a bit cooler, I'll continue working on my house, but for the moment: building freeze.
But the heat doesn't keep me away from shopping and so I bought these 2 cuties on a online miniature fair aminiminiatureshow.weebly.com and they arrived today. I'm absolutly in love :)

Weiter gehts!

So, und mal wieder ein kleines Garten-Update.
Der Zaun is fertig, die Blaue Hortensie auch und ich hab einen kleinen Tümpel angelegt, bei dem jetzt schon seit ein paar Tagen die erste Schicht Window-Color-Wasser durchtrocknet... Dann hab ich noch einen Rosenbogen aus Holz gebaut (Biegeholz von WoodArt, seeehr praktisch), und noch ein kleines Beet mit ner rosa Hortensie angelegt.In beide Beete kommt natürlich noch massenhaft Zeugs, um den Tümpel soll ganz viel Efeu wuchern, aber soweit, so gut.Die kahle Stelle in der Ecke bleibt natürlich nich so, da kommt noch ein Baum hin und erst wenn der steht, kann ich den Rest Gras "pflanzen"

A small garden update today.
I finished the fence, a blue hydrangea and I started a small pond, but it still dries. Then I made a rose arch out of wood and a small plot with a pink hydrangea.
Of course both plots are not nearly finished, I want to plant some ivy around the pond but this is the status quo at the moment.
On the bald spot in the edge I want to plant another huge tree and so I have to wait with "planting" the rest of the grass till I made that.

Hab die letzten Tage an dem Fliederbaum hier gesessen. Das hat sogar noch länger gedauert als der doofe Blauregen :D Wobei das mit den Blättern irgendwie länger gedauert hat als die Blüten...und es war nerviger. Aber jetzt isser fertig. Er wird da vorm Haus stehen. Drunter pflanz ich dann jetzt noch Zeugs ein... und dann kommt noch der Rest vom Garten.... juhu........ :D

I did a lilac tree the last few days. It was so much work, especially the leaves... But I finally did it. Now I just have to plant some stuff underneath it and finish the rest of the garden.... juppdiduh....
