Piper just got a new dress and decided to celebrate with some cake.
One of the bears joined her.
"Can you hold a fork with those big paws?"
"Ooh. Sounds like someone is at the door."
It's Mr. Rabbeler!
"Hi, my name is Piper, I just moved to Brookhaven."
"I'm Mr. Rabbeler. I've lived along this brook since I was a bunny. I brought you a housewarming donut. If you ever need anything just let me know."
"I'm just eating cake now to celebrate getting a new dress."
"Dots nice! It's a really wonderful dress."
"Thanks. Will you come by some time for tea and cupcakes?"
"I would love it!"
As Piper watched Mr. Rabbeler leave she felt that they would be the best of friends.
I've made some new items. This paper pitcher is another one from Marlies tutorial, but I changed the size and spout shape.
Purchased a couple of paintings at the Tom Bishop show. They are watercolors by Serna Sheridan (she's a member of Northbrook Minis). The one on the left is the Connemara mountains in Ireland and the right is the Morton Arboretum here in Illinois.
Built a kitchen cabinet and matching pot-rack. Also built a little thingy around the upper part of the oven hood - I wasn't thrilled with how that copper sheeting met the ceiling.Made the Daffodils with Lolly's group.
Will add cabinet handles as soon as I find something shiny in gold or copper.
Cut down the hutch, added toothpics to hold plates, trim so plates wouldn't roll off. For pot-rack I used a pewter picture frame, cut down headpins for cage and surrounded with popsicle sticks.
I painted some furniture for the baby's room. The wallpaper is scrapbooking paper. Took pieces of it and decoupaged them to the front of the "cabinets" & painted and cut a matching border for the room. Faux moleskin carpeting - so soft!
