new addition

Ok I have given in and spent 'real' money on this staircase. I bought it for the largest dome I have, but it is just a squeek too large, so now I will have to find a way to make it free standing......I love it! and when it is painted white it will look amazing, but it was pricey and now i must stop, and stick by my charity shop / carboot rule........ It is lovely tho' don't you think :-)


I may be getting a little silly now...... I have found some decoy crows...very cheap, and then when i was buying paint yesterday there was a bunch of keys in the garden section of the I have put them together.....where on earth is this all going? I really don't know yet, but it is all towards an exhibition I hope....paintings / drawings next :-)

4 finished domes

I am happy with these little domes, they will stay like this for a little while. The joy of the dome is that you can change the items regularly, unlike framing a picture, plus I love how a dome gives great importance to the object placed inside it......

photos of the sets so far...

The Fairytale narrative is working quite well in these toys/ ornaments......some I am putting under glass domes, others are free to roam :-)
I am getting frustrated that I cant find the exact objects I am looking for, i have plans and scenes in my head but I have to wait until the objects can be found. I am setting myself the task that they should all be bought at car boot sales and charity shops.........finding them and giving them a new life is a source of great enjoyment for me :-)

my collection is camera has run out of batteries now so I can't get on with taking any more pics until tomorrow, but so far so good.....I have had fun with this lot and have even had to empty out my bookcase to house them. I have so many ideas running through my head I can't seem to settle on just one. I have a small exhibition to put up this week and when that is done I may be able to settle down to working on my new ideas.

The sun is making all my objects look wonderful......I love how they have a narrative all of their own

I have been spraying some more pieces... i like the white, you add colour in your mind :-) I added
a nest to the dove, its harder than you think , making a nest out of twigs.......then i added glitter because as my eyesight fails I like shiny even more :-)

an old trick

getting mismatched objects spraying / painting them an all over colour makes them more compatible....this weekends flea market finds are not what I would like in my home usually, but i am in a frivilous mood at the moment and wanted a cheap, quick they are all white I can put them together...what do you think? nice? Have a look here on flickr to see what I did with them :-)
