First let me start by saying thank you all for congratulating me on my blog anniversary. I loved reading the many suggestions and requests on what you would like to see me make next. Just to clear up one thing, I wasn't short of inspiration, I was just very curious what you thought I should make.
What a surprise to find that 80 of you entered my prize draw! I've put all of your names on slips of paper, put them in a little hat, gave them a good stir and pulled out one name...
Congratulations Ira! Your gift will be in the mail as soon as I have your address.
In her comment Ira wrote this:
'And to what I would like to see you do is some Chinoisserie furniture, lets say that a bamboo chair. This because I love the delicatecy of Chinoisserie furniture and there's hardly none in the market in miniature scale.
And if we go a little bigger, an orangerie filled with plants and mix and match vintage furniture. This is because your work is so suberb and I would love to see how you build the structure of the orangerie and the over all result.'
I love Ira's suggestions for making a (faux) bamboo chair and orangerie. Once I have finished my commissions, I will have a go at making these. In a later comment, Ira also suggested making a Venetian gondola...I think I'm sticking with the chair and orangerie Ira!
