Who lives in a house like this? Magical miniature homes crop up on the Isle of Man leaving residents mystified
- World-renowned street artists Anonymouse Mmx have now claimed responsibility for the abodes
- Measuring on average just 12 inches high, the houses feature miniature hand-crafted pieces of furniture
- One tiny shelter at Bradda Head on the coastline has been designed to look like a 19th century tower
Nostalgia Close street scene
Finally gathered together all the bits and had great fun putting it all in place.
Getting from here to there – a feline cunning plan?
What else is out for delivery?
Balancing by beetroot
(Ganley is the name of S’s late father’s wholesale green grocery, by the way.)
One of these dogs doesn’t even have a collar and who knows if either have a dog licence.
So, that’s probably it for Nostalgia Close until Christmas when I’ll light it all up once more 🙂
Back to the much needed sorting. I’m trying to bottom out everything in the Potting Shed and am, surprisingly, getting somewhere at last. Have kept putting off the wallpaper and fabric hoard, but will have to go there any minute now before they tumble out all over the place.
Just pop out of the gate
The post box sits at the other end of the road to the street light
Once I’d done some research, the making of the box involved a lot of dashing in and out between the domestic jobs I was supposed to be doing, and around the glue and paint drying out at the various stages. Made with cardboard and edgings in 15 mm wood strip plus painted string for the finer bits. Worst part was working on what I’ve always taken to be a rain cover over the posting slot. It is so small I could barely hold it to score and crease it and then, when the area was glued to take it, I couldn’t let go. Thought I was going to lose it down the posting slot 🙂
More than a little rough and ready
but up and working
Not very bright, is it, and despite a little yellow colouring it’s still a very blue light – hey hum. I have, by the way, now sealed off that light bleed around the bobble on the top. Looks a bit like a white pom-pom on a woolly hat.
One or two other things to join with Nipper as part of the street scene I think.
Back to the lamp
The design seems OK but the finish is pretty bad; mostly bits of modelling clay, used at various joining points, that I couldn’t quite remove, the old sticky fingers plus bad moves with a paint brush and, of course, over handling. The lamp could be replaced by a ‘better’ run at it, but for the moment at least it stays 🙂
