Funnily, my last post was my 500th post. Nice :-)
Diane's paper doll... Why didn't I think about that?
I mean, I have been working with paper and cardboard all my life, and I'm really good with 3D thinking and patterns and such.
And I love dolls.
But no, this I have never thought :-D
Or this one...
I know they made furniture of papier mache back in France in the 18th century, and really pretty things too, as hard and durable as wood, if not more so.
That whole cabinet is made of corrugated cardboard (fiberboard). It is just as steady as a wooden furniture would be, but whereas carpentry is beyond my capacity, paperwork is not... also, there's plenty of material just lying around.
And for some reason I never thought of that.
Isn't it wonderful that there are people who do think about it? :-D
Because, another thing I'm really good at is copying. :-)
I love the cabinets with many drawers and doors and hidden compartments... I could make myself one, two, twenty... *sigh*
I don't NEED the item to BE old, just have the aesthetics... Wood is, of course, the best, but I like the Chinese and Tibetan chests and Korean Dansus too, so painting the thing lacquer red and adding some details, like black handles and such... perhaps even make them out of polymer clay or salt dough or what ever ;-)
Parian Peddler" doll... I'd like something like that... for my cabinet of curiosities...
P.P.S. If I had a house like House on the Rock collection, I'd collect:
things about witches, witchcraft, divination, Paganism and alternative healing methods, and other such paranormal, supernatural, mythical, mystical and magical things :-)
Mythical beasts, especially dragons, unicorns and white deers
puppets - I want the world's largest hand puppet collection :-D
music boxes, clockworks and steampowered gadgets
Sabbath decoration - for each of the 8 Sabbaths, like some people collect Halloween, Easter and Christmas decorations
Carousel animals and figure heads
peacocks and phoenixes
