Mystery Box - 1st of the year :)

Woah what a challenge.. tiny stuff! Kez sent over a tea cup, saucer & plate.  I instantly knew what I would be doing with it.. just putting it together was quite a challenge for me, 
I don't handle tiny well!!
Firstly.. I employed the love of my life Ted LOL to hang around and keep me company..

Threw in a spinner here.. the makings of a handle.. well 2.. more on that later..This is to be used in my sewing project - life size this time. A new blog has been made for sewing to keep subjects in the right place LOL

Borrowed some landscaping stuff from my son - he paints warhammer figurines.. (thanks Tom)

I didn't take progress shots.. This has been drying for 24 hrs and is still a little damp.. so I can't tip it up to get rid of the excess.. but here's the finished product (although I see I have a few areas to touch up now! GRRR)

It was a LOT of fun!! Thanks Kez! Oh dear, from this angle it looks rather wonky! The bits on the table are supposed to be glasses.. one of them is broken.  Perhaps could have done better there LOL - oh this pic is minus the outside trees.  The tree inside the cup is made from wire and some tiny tiny ivy I bought from Toms favorite store he gets his goodies from. 
Looking at it now.. it's overdone - *sigh* Oh well.. it's here now! 

I haven't even begun to think about the next mystery box bits & pieces.. but will get onto that this week!

I spent a lot of time looking at videos on youtube, reading blogs, scouring furniture and decorating sites.. I can't say I've EVER seen anything that had me wanting to create one.. immediately.. until this morning! Kez sent me a link to a site with lots of tutorials linked to it.. and voila - I fell in love! Hahaha

Here's the tutorial! Penguin teapot

I'm scared of fimo - even though I have lots of it.. and loads of tools to create with! Anyway here tis! I'm quite happy since this is the first fimo project that has worked for me!

The mystery box challenge will finish next week :) I'm almost done and pretty happy with that too.. stay tuned!

Here tis.. far from finished.

It's a stinking hot day here - so I decided to set up the tools inside LOL - oh what a mess!! LOL as you can see, the bench I use had been outside, some plant life still in it!

The idea.. comes from this! My doorway was too tall, and too narrow, to fit any doors I have here - so I decided to try and make my own.

So here it is so far - it's not good.. but it will fit, needs sanding and I can cover up any gaps with a little magic here and there ;-)
I'll post the final product when it's done.. so far really I have only done the door and the frame for it, so obviously a long way to go!

What will it be?

Time to get back to work on my mini stuff :) I have embarked on a rather daunting project for the day (or 2) - here are some things in use hehe!!

Hopefully I can post a finished product or 2 later on today...
Stay tuned!
