Default Stash of the day..

Found these tiles in bq..had been lowered in price (just over 1 each)so thought they would look nice as a path up to a house front,will probably use the instant polyfiller to grout them to a wood board.
..imagined the 2nd tile in front of a porch with pillars and door with stained glass on top..want to do a box room type scene with 1 bay window,door,garden area,bushes,small wall and gate and this is perfect for it....will take off the 3 small tiles and put them on the other side to even it up.

glad you like ladies....i shall probably end up doing it in the billy bookcase,i'll still be able to put the shadowbox on top it when not in use..


this is the idea.. (ignore the fence at the back it will be brick or stone effect)you could use a sheet of sandpaper to look like gravel instead of grass effect

My stash of the day was a happy find in my local Hobbycraft. A house shaped wall plaque. At some point I hope to fill it with two or three floors and an attic. Not sure what the scale will be but probably about 1/24th. Just need to decide what period and what will go in it.

..love that!..have fun with it...there are quite a few 'housey' decorative items for sale,usually wall hangings and things to put your candles in...wilkos sell a big metal house shape about 15 loads of windos and 2 stoeies high,i was hoping they'd drop it down a lot more in the sales but they did'nt...and one of my fancy gift shops have quite a few for sale..they would be a small 12th scale,some furnitures can be undersized or oversized and the others may well fit the 24th,although i am not familiar with this scale in the flesh.
