Learning to buy just anything

Firstly - I played lol - some of the beautiful food Kerry made for me put to use, still not really sure how I will have my kitchen yet - this was just a play ;-)

I went to a car boot sale on the weekend, with my house in mind.  Didn't find a lot.. but DID find these coasters for $1 (there are actually 6)... oh the possibilities are endless!!!

Also got some materials for bedding and towels - some 'plant' type things, and some awesome beads which will make my Christmas tree perfect!!  Oh.. and have some Fimo coming :))

Lots of decorating for christmas to do - hoping to get a ton done in the next couple of weeks. Got to tame these fat fingers to do intricate work.. I have found some ideas that REALLY interest me so hoping to start trying a few things soon!

A little surprise :)

I have a very creative Sister-In-Law in Tasmania who was very interested in my little house.... Little did I know... she got very busy, and today I received a gorgeous surprise in the mail!!!

SIL enjoyed making these so much she is working on more!! Haha another mini addict ;-) I LOVE them!

Not joined to the house yet.. but I have been working on the front verandah today..

Major construction is happening

I have decided that with Christmas being only a matter of weeks away, I need to finish constructing my house and getting the decorations hung!
Made a Christmas tree and decorated it on Friday night - (pic coming) which I do love, however the pot I have it in is a little too big for my liking so am scouting around for a smaller one.  ATM I am working on the front of the house, and will start work on upstairs so I can get the roof on.  Painting of the roof won't happen till it's done as I'm not sure what I want to do with it yet.

I have 2 weeks off work from the end of next week because I have to have surgery so hope to get a lot more done while I'm home :)

Bought another house which I have huge plans for - while it was cheap to buy ($20 not the price shown) - the shipping has me in absolute shock - however the finished product will be worth every cent ;-)
I should ammend that - my son bought it for me for Christmas :)) The subject of this little gem will be worked around his hobbies and loves.

Tonight I started playing with the cutest wrapping paper!! Made some gifts.. bear in mind.. here in Aus.. our gifts may look different from what they do overseas..

And.. here is my son's gorgeous new pet Scarl:

Saturday Night

Tonight has been dedicated to reading.. tips and tricks.. type of thing, and a bit of painting.  Then decided to do a thing or 2 with some beads.

Painting my front door - I got a new one on eBay but was dissappointed to find it was plastic :(( Anyway, it's a learning process hey.  It has 2 leadlight panels:

So.. to the beads, I have a huge collection - once decided it might be fun to make things... never got into it..

The bowl here and contents are all beads (yes bowl too).. sorry for the quality - am going to add some 'green' to it..

So then I found these (and a few more):

and came up with this?

Tomorrow will be learning about......
