I haven't really come back to the daily life after all holidays yet... I have a lot on my mind right now.. So I haven't post anything since last year (as you can see...) =) Hope you all will have a great 2014. I most say I hope I will get a great year too ;) I've had a good start so far. But not much time for minis...
But here is what I have been up to lately, except shopping, celebrating new years eve at my mum's and enjoying having my husband home all day long for several days in a row =) (Me, I'm always home since I'm some kind of housewife, the kind that cleans the house and makes minis, but hates to cook ;) )
Anyway I realized Konrad and Lisbeth didn't have wedding rings.. At least in Sweden it's common to have one golden ring on the left ring-finger if we are engaged, and the girl has two rings if she is married, but the guy just get his one =) (He can get two, but one is more common)
I have 2 rings myself, and of course I remember getting them very well ;) The first engagement ring was very exiting to get. We ordered it without anyone knowing. And took them with us on a pick-nick. That was one of the luckiest days of my life. It was a hot and beautiful summer day and we went for a swim in a lake. I remember how I tried swimming with my hand tightly holding on to the ring, with a closed fist, very hard to swim that way ;) But I was very afraid to lose the ring =)
And at the wedding I was very nervous. But it was a perfect day too =) And I'm glad I got to share it with so many people that I love.
Now I can remember all this happy moments just by looking at my rings, so off course my dollhouse dolls have to have a thing like that, to remember their wedding. I imagine it was beautiful, a wonderful summer day I think, just like mine ;)
I get stuck in all these writing as usual... ;) But here is a picture, I painted some rings on their fingers =)
And when I finally got that little thing done, I started baking a cake, in miniature of course, I'm not the baking kind of housewife either.... (too bad, because I love eating cakes and good food) =)
The cake tin is made out of candle-holders, the same thing I used for the washing machine =) I got the idea when I was looking at Kikkas blog, this peticular post =)
I cut it in pieces and used a lot of glue.. This was not the easiest thing to glue.. It might have been easier to use paper, and paint it. But I thought this would look good, but it was a bit hard to attach the bottom...
The cake is made of air-drying clay (that I got from Sara in a swap last year) unfortunately it had already started to dry, but I could chop it up and use it. And on the top I added some deco glue that I got from Sushi flavour's webshop.
This is suppose to look like my mum's favourite cake =) A chocolate cake, "kladdkaka", easy to make, in real life =) and very tasty.
Lisbet and Konrad thought this cake was perfect for celebrating the fact that they finally got their rings =)
(I'm amazed they manage to make a cake in such a unfinished kitchen ;) )
