I'm building

This flower bed was carved out of an Austrotherm panel (extruded polystyrol). After some paint I have soil and basalt cube fenced it. For pavement I made flagstones (eggcarton), and I dispersed fine gravel onto the glued surface around them.



I've painted the inside of the shed. It's very worn! For the woven fence I used rattan and the pieces of my real fig tree. (The poor one was winter-killed, but has new offshoots!) Do the logs look like they were cleaved with an axe? I really made them with an axe, and I still have all of my ten fingers! The scene was pictured on the table of our patio.




I have new followers! I hope you enjoy my blog! I send these daisies from my garden for you! Thank you for following my blog!

The logs are perfect and YES.....they really do look like you used an axe. I really love how this is turning out. The fence that you built by the logs is so perfect! You are very good at everything that you do!!!

Bozse, everytime I see your blog I get so inspired and get more ideas for my current project. Thank you for sharing your work and inspiring me. I want to now try to make a raised flower bed in the foam as well!!

These days are breathless, to say the least!
I missed this post, yesterday ...
Fantastic work, Bozse! Realism is perfect. It could be, among other things, a perfect scene for a popular Nativity...
I love the crib and I set up the scenario often using polystyrene (bricks, engraved with the welder, are fine).
A hug, flora

This is a really interesting project, and as always everything is made so cleverly.

I've missed the update notification on this post, it seems there is something odd going on with Blogger at the moment as there are a few other people also complaining they're not getting all updates of the blogs they follow.

Make sure you come over and check out my giveaway :)
