A little progress on the mouse house

Finally I can show you some progress on the mouse house!  Although the sun is shining a lot these days here in Germany, there is also a quite fresh wind and as Jenny Mandelblüte already got a bad cough I thought it was about time to go on with her home.

The walls will be a mixture of bricks and wallpapers. For the wood parts I have used some air drying clay which I painted after drying. That made things a lot easier for me as the walls are round. The sandstone brick compound is from Bromley Crafts. For the brick walls and the stone floor I used some self adhesive patterns I found on ebay.

Here you can see that it is not more than a beginning :-), no windows made yet, the upper floor is
completely naked, the exterior just be continued :-)))))

This is something I started for the exterior of my Ballerina´s house, it is a 
wild roses kit from Pascale Garnier:

I really love it! And I congratulated to myself to have bought a wild rose and not an English roses kit...the flowers are made so quickly:-))))

These are some real flowers from my garden:

Welcome to my new followers!

I am always thrilled when I find someone new or when someone took time to leave a comment!
Thanks so much!
Recently I have BIG problems with our computer so sometimes I ´m just happy to get online at all and don´t succeed in making comments. Hope that this will be better soon!

Bye for now,


  1. Sandra, your little mouse is so cute.
    And so is his home, cute and cosy.♥
    I also congratulate you on your wild rose!
    It is as beautiful as your
    real flowers from your garden.

  11. Hoffentlich geht's Jenny besser... nicht, dass sie sich eine ordentliche Erkältung eingefangen hat! Ein wunderschönes Zuhause wird sie bekommen, das sieht alles schon richtig klasse aus. Und Deine Rosen sind beeindruckend geworden.

  12. Your mouse house is adorable, you've made such a good job of everything. I see another lovely flower kit by Pascale, made beautifully as you always do. The floor in the mouse house is very impressive! Gill x

  13. Hi Sandra! Your mousehouse is great! The walls and floor are great, fantastic work.
    I love that poor little caught-a-cold-mouse ;)Put the poor one in its bed, before it is getting worse!
    Your mouse gets some beautiful roses! My peonies in my real life garden are not blooming yet. We had warm dry summer weather over here, but I have to wait a while for the bloom of the peonies.
    LIebe Grüsse, Ilona

  14. Sandra, das Haus nimmt Gestalt an. Und die Wildrosen sind ein Traum.
    Liebe Grüße Craftland
