Morning all

I have the dress, the hat, the shoes, just need the bag, wedding next week, getting excited, will be so proud when I see my son get married, hope I do not cry.

I have not been doing much in the way of minis, hence the lack of posts, we have been sorting out the garden, mainly the vegetable plot, my son has extended it a bit so we can grow a bit more veg, he is busy making raised beds, we will then fill them with soli and compost, the soil here is terrible, so we hope this way will help us to produce better veg.

Well that's real life taken care of  now lets get on to minis.

I have a room box that I have been looking at for ages wondering what to do with it, I had one idea of making it into a shop that sells all things horsey, but I wanted a bigger shop for that, I was on ebay looking at all things crafty and found some shoe charms, so I sent for a few to see what I could do with them, I loved them so I have started painting them, can you guess where this is going, yes I have decided to do a shoe shop, It will include some hats, bags and jewellery, so maybe it will be a ladies accessories shop, I have been busy making shoe boxes and in-between painting the shoes, they take a long while and are very fiddly, you paint a bit and then wait hours for it to dry,

I have also started another Kopy Kat, its a desk, did not have the exact one so had to bash a dresser about, I have been making a few kitchen shelves, they are not finished yet, but thought I would show you progress so far.

still need to add handles and a few more bits

the kitchen units and chest

The hot weather is coming back and some printies

some how these came out first, so here are your printies 
Hi All
yes the sun is shinning and the hot weather is on the way back, fingers crossed that it stays till the end of August for the wedding. My preparation continues, had my hair highlighted last week, just need to find the handbag then I am done.

We had some great news, my Niece gave birth to lovely Isabel, she is so cute and I love her name, it was just what the family needed, my sister in law is doing ok, she now has the Macmillan nurses around to give her help as and when she needs it.

Me, well I have been continuing to make My Kopy Kat minis, have got enough now to put on eBay, waiting for free listing, some of the minis that I have put on face book got sold, which was good. eBay is getting more expensive now especially now the postal rates have gone up, there are some people really charging high post, I saw for a chest of drawers (mini of course) she wanted 7.20 for post!! would not pay that.

Well lets get on to the photos, I have also got you some printies, these are not mine so please only personal use thank you
