I love miniature items so last week I challenged myself to make my own miniature door, it was nice to move away from paper and card, so out came the hand  saw and I jumped right in, I have to practice a lot to get the straight edges but I was happy with my first attempt, I sawed, sanded and sanded and sanded again until I was happy with the smooth edges, then varnished, painted and embellished, I don't have any small children in my house so took inspiration from my friend Bab's and made up a little scene in a deep frame, as anyone familiar with my card making will know I love to make up scenes with trees, picket fences, grass and anything really that makes up a little story, I always loved doing that as a child, so I am in my second childhood now :) I made a milk bottle and mushrooms with fimo after I took the large photo, you can see the finished frame below, I think I feel another addiction coming on :) I have a few more cut out ready to paint, and I love the way each one is slightly different in size and shape because they are 100% hand made.


 
 
Fancy a cuppa !!!!

 
I bought the chair and made the table :)
