1. Making Rag Dolls and Soft Toys from Scrap Fabrics
Making Rag Dolls and Soft Toys from Scrap Fabrics
The lens photo is one of a number of dolls I've made using up scraps of material. Some were given away as presents, many were sold and I have kept a few for any little girls who visit me to play with. But I want to get you started on toy making - it really isn't hard to do. Making Rag Doll...

2. Attracting and repelling bees
Attracting and repelling bees
Bees are necessary for pollination of plants, without them the World's harvests would be considerably poorer. If you grow fruit and vegetables in your garden then you will want to attract bees, if you have an allergy to bee stings then you will want to try and keep your garden a bee free zone...

3. Vintage and Antique Dollhouses
Vintage and Antique Dollhouses
Collecting dollhouses is a most enjoyable hobby and certainly can't be regarded as solely the domain of women and girls. When it comes to the vintage and antique houses, they are highly collectable, even in poor condition some fetch very high prices because of their rarity. Many offer a sli...

4. Cleansing and Charging Your Tarot Cards
Cleansing and Charging Your Tarot Cards
Many of the Tarot decks I have were bought second hand and, just as there are always new styles of deck coming in, many Tarot decks are long out of print and only available second hand. Of course, on some of the internet auction sites you can from time to time find new and sealed OOP decks avail...

5. My Favourite Tarot Decks
My Favourite Tarot Decks
My lens for The Map of the Tarot had become far too long and had been sidetracked into a lens mainly of Tarot Decks (I had no idea I would be adding so many) so this is the first lens which grew from that original. These are my favourite Tarot decks (though this list is not quite complete) from ...

6. Choosing a Tarot Deck for Beginners
Choosing a Tarot Deck for Beginners
Choosing your first Tarot cards can be a daunting task and, judging by the number of unused and barely used decks for sale on sites like eBay, it seems to me that most buyers are overwhelmed by the choice available, frequently selecting decks which are too advanced or too complex, then giving up ...

Deb Jackson Designs Complete Miniature Settings
This is another lens which grew from the original I started for Deb Jackson's miniatures. In this lens I'll place some of Deb's complete settings which are suitable not only for dollhouses but also for room boxes or even to display on a shelf with other 1:12 scale models. I could ne...

Countess Elizabeth Bathory Guilty or Innocent?
It is fast approaching the 400th anniversary of Erzsebet Bathory's death and in all this time only one side of the story has been told. In spite of the fact that Her Ladyship's accusers stood to gain substantially from her downfall, only their side of the proceedings is known. Perhaps i...

9. Action Man Physique Changes
Action Man Physique Changes
Perfectly proportioned and extremely flexible, the original Action Man was not overly muscular, he had a normal, fit body type and this body type served him well for over a decade. Action Man is the European version of GI Joe, the 12 inch tall fully posable action figure. He made his first appe...

11. Restoring your Dollhouse
Restoring your Dollhouse
From dings and dents to woodworm and wonky bits, we'll try to cover as many aspects as we can in relation to restoring old, vintage or antique dollhouses. I say 'we' because this (and the other dollhouse related lenses) is a collaboration between my daughter, Raven, and myself. She&#...

12. Small Collectables - Bottle Openers
Small Collectables - Bottle Openers
Bottle openers are a relatively recent collectable, you won't find any earlier than the end of the 19th century since the very first patent for the "Crown Cork" method of sealing a bottle dates from the last decade of the 1800s. The "Crown Cork" was the first crimped metal closure, requiring a mo...

13. Simple Stitches
Simple Stitches
I decided that, to go along with my lenses about re-using cloth and clothes, it would be a good idea to make a lens showing some of the simpler hand and embroidery stitches. Many years ago when I was starting out with sewing of all kinds, I made my own notebooks of diagrams for a large number of...

Making old clothes into funky bags
This lens joins my other recycling lenses (links below the guestbook) to hopefully save you some money and keep the "trash" out of the landfill. I'll add more bags as I go along but there are only so many hours in the day. I hope the examples I'm showing will help to inspire your own ide...

16. Meerschaum
The word Meerschaum means sea scum (from Old German) or sea foam. It is a porous mineral, also known as sepiolite, which can float on water and it was apparently used by Tartars as a soap. The mineral is found in several areas on the planet but if you search for 'meerschaum mines' on Google Eart...

Tarot for the more advanced
The Tarot decks displayed below are those I consider not best for a beginner. Some have additional cards to the deck, some have renamed many of the cards and some are just plain 'different' enough from the normal Tarot so as to make them a difficult place to begin learning. I don't ...

Small Collectables - Pipe Tampers
If you are looking to start a collection of something but you really don't have a great deal of display space, pipe tampers offer an excellent collectable, likely to increase in value into the future as smoking becomes less indulged in, and capable of being displayed in a very small space. You c...

Small Collectables - Letter Openers
We know that letters have been written for at least two thousand years thanks to a cache of tablets found at Vindolanda, Hadrians Wall. They were not simply written by scribes, many were written by soldiers, others by the wives of soldiers and yet others by slaves, and merchants. Of course, no le...

Furnishing Vintage and Antique Dollhouses

Making a Wooden Spoon Doll
What do you do with your old wooden spoons? Don't just throw them away, you can still get use out of them even if they won't pass the hygiene test for food use. It's even worse if you have a dishwasher (as I have), those high temperatures and super-efficient wash cycles can strip the patterns of...

1950's memories from Scotland
I've never really been one for routine but when my kids were young there was one I positively looked forward to, picking up my weekly bread from the bakers on a Wednesday. Maybe that's why Wednesday was always baking day, I'm not sure, but it was always less of a routine and more of ...

Action Man first appeared in the UK in the 1960s and was a perennial favourite for two decades until production ceased in the 1980s. After almost ten years in the wilderness, the 12 inch figure arrived back in the UK, clearly having worked out and with a whole new range of modern accessories. Th...

My Egg Collection
Collecting wild bird eggs is against the law in many parts of the world so my egg collection has nothing to do with birds at all. Gemstone or semi-precious eggs are a wonderful alternative, guilt free and not as easily broken, you can pass them round for others to look at and admire rather than k...

Boxes are always useful but, if you are a collector, boxes are essential.

There is a surprising number of modern puppet makers, some of whom are in the mass market and produce very good puppets for children to use, but in this lens, I am not concerned with them.

If, like me, you collect hat pins then at some point you are going to be interested in pin cushions. You might also be surprised how collectable pin cushions can be. Of course, it isn't always possible to display hat pins in a pin cushion. Many are double ended and many are very long, most pin c...

Although Action Man has had many adversaries, the new Action Man needed a challenge to overcome and, in 1994, it came in the shape of Dr X. Over the years the Dr X figure has changed many times, each new edition sporting more deadly weapons and a meaner look altogether. Always looking for World ...

On Planet Earth we are surrounded by beautiful things and we can find them wherever we walk. Sometimes it's a view, a landscape of particular note, a garden, a sunset, the sound of an ocean, the perfume of a rose and sometimes it's a found object, a curiosity of Nature which is placed bef...
