Amber and Poppy in my craft room. These are there own chairs and they sit and watch me while i work.
The first day we had Poppy... she has grown loads since!
I've had to strip all these plants and dig them out. Poppy was chewing everything and was worried some could be poisonous. Its kind of a plus because want to change the garden next year and so now have it totally cleared. Really love this photo!
A Couple of weeks ago we brought home our second Puppy Poppy. She is now almost 12 weeks and has settled in well. She is a Blue Roan Cocker Spaniel and so some her of white areas will turn more grey over time. Poppy and Amber had some serious puppy fights at first but over time this has reduced and now they mostly play and share. Will be able to take Poppy for walks with Amber at the start of next week now she has had her second vaccinations. She's such a cutie and has a nice little character when not squabbling with Amber. Also her curls have started to come in which i just adore!
I've not had too much time for minis but when possible have done a little work here and there. Here's a mandrake table i should complete soon! Since this photo i have added the mandrakes.
Will also be making some in pots, watering cans and similar available for sale soon! Plus plan to make some mandrake pendants and brooches.
I've also bought myself the Retreat Kit, and turning this into a witch style building. I plan to call it Pumpkin Cottage or similar. The kits comes so that it opens from the front but this wasn't suited to my plans so have made it so it opens from the back. So far not done much and can see many hours ahead of me with this.... but promising myself i finish this one.
Normally I'm petrified to go to big with Pumpkins, but now i have the retreat as a guide its made me more confident to go bigger. Here's the start of 5 larger versions to make a pumpkin patch... will have these for sale shortly. Looking at them next to the retreat i think i can go even bigger and perhaps make one with a face too.
