Lucky dip

I realised yesterday that the three white vases I bought cheaply from last month's show were the third of each vase I had in my collection.

Something had to be done. And just as I was drifting off to sleep the answer came to me and caused me to get out of bed, wander downstairs and rummage in the paint stash to see what I could do.

What I could do was have a try at dip painting:
Modern dolls' house miniature bedroom scene with futon bed with a white waffle-weave blanket, a blonde-wood chair holding two dip-painted white vases and a feather.
Which worked a treat and turned into a new scene this morning, inspired by my need to create a miniature version of the white cotton waffle-weave blanket I got from Just Bedding back in February (and which I packed away this week as the weather is getting too cold for it).
Modern dolls' house miniature bedroom scene with futon bed with a white waffle-weave blanket, a blonde-wood chair holding two dip-painted white vases and a large round wire lightshade.
(The wallpaper is from the same pad that the paper for Limited Colour came from: and one I never thought I'd use. The chair is from minisx2, the feather was a gift from Elvira the light shade from a pack of Christmas decorations I've had hanging round for years for just such a purpose, and the waffle-weave blanket is courtesy of an op-shopped dressing gown.)

Want to ask Di if she can send me some more vases and the bill?

Actually, I was thinking gold-dipped ones would be great for the May show but the price would be more than most would pay...

I could even send you some from my collection of "I must do something with those some day" vases.

I found 8. Do you think I might have a problem with over-shopping?

Yes. And if you bought paint, you could dip them yourself... ;-)
