i have also been trying to fix up a few things that needed repairs. Sage's little bendy faeries fell victim to Rufus the beagle puppy. One night, he pulled almost everything off of my nature table and destroyed it all. He completely chewed up all my acorns and pine cones. He chewed the ends off of the stackable rainbow and broke several of the ceramic mushrooms. :( He also got a hold of Sage's faeries and chewed the caps and faces off of them.
The little faerie cakes are made from wooden button plugs, and i made some loaves of bread using a larger sized button. i do need to work on my painting skills. :) i don't have a good paintbrush and have been using the kids big stiff plastic ones. i need to get a really fine and thin one so i can paint details, and clean up the sloppy edges.
MMmmm....faerie cakes. :)
i created the details on these bowls and cupcakes with a gel pen.
The honey pot is made using a candle cup, and i put a big squirt of hot glue in it to look like overflowing honey. So many possibilities!
i picked up a black wooden box/purse at Michael's to store the finished playset in. i still have to paint and decorate it, but i do have a lot of ideas! i'm going to start a mermaid 'under the sea' playset when i get this one finished up.
Most of the wooden pieces come in sets of 4-8 pieces. So i have lots of extra rolling pins, milk jugs, cakes etc. i have a feeling our nieces and friends' little girls will be getting similar sets for birthdays and Yule. :)
