A little clock house, 3 flying birds and some felt baubles.

I am flipping poorly!
I have a chest infection and I am fed up. I get ill quite often due to a long term illness and crafting is a great way to keep me busy whilst I am house bound.
As I have been in all weekend I have been a busy miss lizzy on the old crafting front.
I have done bed ridden crafting and some 'feeling a bit better' desk crafting.
I would like to have shared some thrifty treasure but alas, I have not been a thrifting for days.

I will share some of my creations instead.

My father in-law gave me an old, brown, mantle clock which I was not mad about and then some months later he showed me a picture of a clock that contained a miniature clock makers shop. It was beautiful.
Since then I have been as keen as a cucumber about doing one myself so I did and here it is

I realise I should have done progress piccies but I am always too giddy kipper during the making process and then it slips my slippery mind.
I have used some my spare bits of vintage doll house furniture (I have a 70s lundby house too).

A little, dreamy sewing room complete with a cheeky kitty.
I made the little pictures and revamped the dresser and wall lamp. To be honest I have enjoyed it thoroughly. What do you think?

I also made some christmas themed lavender bags that could also be fragranced baubles using some super duper iron-ons.

My living room smells divine and just in case you were wondering??... My little horsey friend was a gift from my pal Jayne, I use the word gift loosely as I did actually ask her for it! Nay.

Lastly and leastly I must show you my 3 little birds of joy.

I have wanted flying wall ducks for some time now and truth be told I just cannot justify the cost of the 'real mccoy'.
I spotted these online and just fell in love with the little blighters. They are damaged, they are not ducks but who cares? Not me!
Just got to come up with a way of encouraging them to embrace the season of goodwill along with my cruet clan. I am thinking stripey scarves. Xx
