All About Thomas.
He also loved flowers, well.... eating them anyway! I couldn't bring fresh flowers inside because he would jump onto the bench and nibble on the petals.
Like most cats, he also liked climbing into boxes, shopping bags, hand-bags and several times into my empty doll house.
I had to change the owners name to Thomasina because the bedroom is feminine. I'm sure Thomas wouldn't have objected
I named the shop after one of my "new" cats, Bella.
Now all I need to do is make something for my other cat Harry. I think it will have to be a gymnasium because he's so lively and loves to climb!
I made the footpath from a full size kitchen tile that I cut into shapes then glued down and "grouted"
Some of the flowers are paper punched, some are masking tape and wire then hand painted and some I have bought.
This is the upstairs bedroom. Thomas is asleep on the bed.
The only items that I didn't make apart from the basket and jug and basin were the chair that one very talented friend made and the stack of hat boxes that another lovely "mini" friend made for me.
The bamboo screen was interesting to make, it's made from skewers, glue rings applied to replicate the bamboo, paint and the bottom part is from prints copied on the computer.
