Hello everyone :) It has been a busy couple of weeks my daughter has just moved house so lots to do. My job was mostly to look after my grandson lol I think I got the best job : D I didn't get much time to do mini's though. I played a little with the fimo again and made some fruit and vegetables they are not perfect but I had fun and am learning lots. I have never done a cane before so I decided to try these oranges.
I think the full oranges are not bad :)
Then I tried some peppers.Not a cane.
And some tomatoes which I am rather happy with.
I also tried onions but they were just fit for the bin lol. I will keep trying though ;)
I have not had much time to do anything in my shop so I only have one picture for you. This is a display I made. The beautiful hat bag and umbrella where my first gifts from White (Kekuki) I am so happy to have a place to display them at last :)
Thank you White :) 
This shop is very special to me because I have so many wonderful gifts I was given displayed in it. I still have lots to do in it. I will show you what I have done as soon as I can get some nice pictures taken. Some of it I probably wont get done for some time as I would rather wait and do it properly than try and finish it and not be happy with it. Lol I think I need a break from the ladies shop for the moment and do another part of the store. I will have a cafe on the ground floor and toy shop in the attic room neither of which I have even started yet hehe so lots to do.
I would like to say a Big Hello to all my new followers you are very welcome :)
Have a wonderful week and I hope you are all having a great summer. Thank you all for being here I love to read your always wonderful comments.
Hugs to ALL my Friends.

Hi Maria,
Wow, your miniature fruit and vegetables are amazing!! I love the peppers, the skin looks so real and your oranges and tomatoes look good enough to eat :0) In fact you have made me fancy an orange :0)
Your stand for the ladies shop is lovely and it looks great with those beautiful gifts on it.

Hi Maria, Your fruits and vegetables look so good! The oranges look so realistic--that was your first time trying caning? Great job! I haven't tried that yet myself. Your shop is so sweet. I love having things from friends like you in my mini scenes and houses. It makes them feel so special. It's always so good to hear from you. xo Jennifer

Me han gustado todos tus vegetales, pero sobre todo, las naranjitas.

El efecto de los gajos, te ha quedado genial!

Estoy deseando de ver los progresos de la tienda, pero entiendo que estos trabajos son para disfrutarlos plenamente, sin ningún tipo de prisas.

Feliz semana también para ti.

Un abrazo.

Hello Mary, you enjoy to be with his grandson, as this is one of the best things in life!! I sometimes wonder how I will be like Grandma, Your first experience with fimo was very good, I liked it, I have not tried the fimo, only the cold porcelain ... But I know that the more one feels better ... are becoming the most important of all, is delighting us, things in life should be fun ... If thou enjoyed doing, and then won! kisses in your heart

BiWuBär said...

Your oranges and vegetables really don't look like a first attempt, and I'm convinced the onions didn't deserve this sad ending... great job, I really admire you and I'm curious to see your next ones - as well as the progress on the shop. Oh, and your plans sound so good, a café and a toy shop, that's really my cup of coffee! ;O)

Hugs
Birgit

El fimo no tiene secreto, solo hay que practicar mucho, te han quedado muy bien.
besitos ascension

Mary said...

Yo creo que el fimo se te da bastante bien. Según dicen quienes lo dominan,es cuestión de práctica y tiempo. A juzgar por lo visto,seguro que vas a ir avanzando y llegarás a dominarlo.
Un beso.

Eva - tatalamaru said...

Yo creo que te quedó bastante bien, si te gusta, es cuestión de seguir practicando y llegarás a mejorar mucho, ya lo verás.
Disfruta de la familia y sigue con tu trabajo, estoy deseando ver esa tienda terminada.
Un beso enorme.
