Last week I read about a lily with the
beautiful name Stargazer and
immediate I got a picture in my head
for a plant for Griezelda's conservatory.
Today I made her this stargazer plant.
Difficult to see, but the eye is staring at five
little stars.

The first curio's

The first curio's are in the Cabinet
not much, but a start.

a golden apple from the Garden
of the Hesperides

The dragon-egg that Margriet gave me is temporary
placed on a little table.
Mistral likes a bigger table with all kind of
dragon things, like teeth, blood, skin, a skull etc

The wings of an angel.

Light in Griezelsteyn

My husband always does the electricity in my houses,
this weekend he worked on Griezelsteyn

The batlamp in the livingroom.

Foeksia and Willow don't have
to sit in the dark anymore.

And light in the workshop.
Only 3 lamps in Griezelsteyn 1...
I need to make a lot more.

In Griezelsteyn 2
there is light in the room of Fauve and Raven.

Dragonda is very lucky, she has
now 2 working lamps.

And in the astronomy-room, 3 planets
from the vertical orrery are working.

Griezelsteyn needs a lot more lamps, I better make
a to-do-list for it :-)

Half 2

I worked on Half so here is an update.
No matter what I do, how many times I upload this picture,
rotate it at PSP, remove it from Picassa and upload it back,
Blogger has decided that it has to be rotated this way....

This is the beginning of the
Cabinet of Curiosities.

Griezelda's room is now as it was in
Griezelsteyn 2, so she is very happy.

And this is the conservatory, painted deep purple,
now I have to think about the floor.

Conservatory part 1

I thought that a flowershop in Half was a
good idea, but Griezelda didn't want to hear
about it.
I had to make her a conservatory, but one that
suited her style...
Well, this is the beginning of it.

Moon fases

I had this picture and my first idea was to
put a frame around it and hang it in the
astronomy room.

But later I thought that idea was a bit common voor Griezelsteyn,
so I made 3D moon fases under the plateau.

Perfect for this room!
The plateau can turn, so I can place the moonfase of
the moment in front.

Falcon was bored, his parents are away,
Grams is very busy with Fauve and Raven
and his big sister Foeksia has her friend Willow to stay,
so he asked if his friend Lunar could come
but in this clothes Lunar could not
come to Griezelsteyn

So I dressed him in a piece of fabric
Lisette gave to me.
He also brought Paddo, his bullfrog.

And now the two boys are happily playing
in Falcon's room.

Last week I worked hard on the Astronomy Room.
At this moment this is how it looks.

A plateau in the middle of the room with a big
telescope, a chair and a table.

Galileo (Mistral's cat) is inspecting the plateau.

The right side of the room

The corner with the orreries

And a look through the open dome.
