Its three weeks since I had the second operation on my shoulder and all going well. Of course there is still some post operative pain but the awful pain I was getting with stretching out to get anything has now gone...range of movement is improving slowly too so all in all not too bad. My gorgeous daughter Melissa was home last week for a visit and left Friday...I miss her already. I was cleaning up my desk yesterday after her visit and a WIP just called to be completed
See I had a nearly completed 3D tiny etched metal house on my desk for months and on it were some vintage children images...it got me wondering If they did live in that tiny house what would they play with and what treasure may be found that they have left behind?. I gathered a few things that reminded me of things kids played with or that where needed in that tiny house and attached them on the bottom. I then got stuck getting the roof to stay on....finally with some hints by Jen Crossley (holding my tongue to the right really helped Jen LOL) I got the roof on eventually and the little house that Annette built was made :o). House is 4cm tall, 3cm wide and sides are 1.5cm wide.
On both sides there is tiny ice resined ,vintage children in tiny bezels.
I think I'll darken the wire that I used on the dangles with some black patina for solder but other then that I think its all done and ready to be worn.
