  3. Victoria Villa overview Updated

    Now that the house is nearing completion I thought I would create an album with a picture of each area to give an overview of the house. My previous Garfield albums are full of build pictures.

  5. Spring Fling 2012 Updated

    Spring Fling 2012 "The Lanterns" a bohemian garden room.

    Ellie was a model in the 60s and 70s. She modelled for Vogue, Quant and Biba among many others. She was the girl of the moment in 1960s London; invited to all the parties, film festivals, trips on yachts, weekends in Marrakech or the French Alps. She counted Cathy and Hywel, Terry and Julie, Jean, Mick and David as personal friends and partied hard with the best of them. Ellie was loved and admired, not just for her stunning looks and figure but for her style. She was a Biba girl through and through. Ellie's flat in Cheyne Walk was full of the quirky and beautiful. Gorgeous eclectic, exotic things she had picked up on her extensive modelling assignments to far flung places and objects d'art picked up in the markets of Petticoat Lane, Kensington High Street, Paris and Amsterdam. Her little flat was often used for impromptu photo shoots and was always full of London's beautiful people.

    Fast forward to 2012 and Ellie is no longer living in Cheyne Walk, in fact there have been many moves since those heady days but everywhere she has lived, Ellie has taken her unique style with her. That doesn't mean she hasn't moved with the times, she has, but she's still that bohemian hothouse flower that she was in the 60s. Today she lives in a cottage in the Cotswolds. Yes, it's quieter during the week but at weekends it's still full of friends, a few survivors from the 60s, local celebrities, artists, photographers still gathering round Ellie like moths round a flame. Her cottage isn't small; you are just seeing a small section of it here, her garden room created from a neighbouring cottage that she bought as an investment but then couldn't bear to part with. Its a perfect place for Ellie to relax with a cocktail, a good book and her cat either inside on that huge comfy couch or outside on the patio catching a few rays. Looks as though Ellie is expecting you today so come on in and enjoy a drink and some stimulating conversation.

  7. Arsenic and Old Lace Updated

    I wanted to do a scene but not necessarily a complete house, based on the 1944 film Arsenic and Old Lace.
    So I decided to do a roombox. Its turning out to be huge.

  11. Spring Fling 2010 - Hasan's Place Updated

    My first competition entry.
    HASAN’S PLACE
    Hasan and Fareeda live in a remote fishing village way off the beaten track in a part of the world previously known only to a few adventurous individuals. Fishing is a way of life but Hasan is also the local handyman and can turn his hand to almost anything. A shrewd businessman, Hasan was quick to capitalise when in the mid to late sixties more and more travellers began seeking out new locations and experiences. He built a restaurant addition to his fishing shack and brought Fareeda from their village house to do the cooking. This new breed of tourist had money to spend and their thirst for novel experiences and authenticity meant that they mostly turned a blind eye to the state of the facilities in exchange for fresh grilled fish straight from the ocean, fishing trips in “The Odelisque”, moored in the harbour and fondly referred to by his customers as “Sailbad the Sinner” and fishermen’s tales told long into the night. Who cares what lurks in the kitchen; (apart from Fareeda) they would have stories to tell and photos to pass round when they got back home.
    Hasan’s place is very popular and you will always find a steady stream of tourists. Today, Fareeda’s paternal uncle has dropped by for a cool drink and most days you will find Pete (Lone Wolf Creations) whiling away a few hours gazing out to sea with his telescope and chatting to his old friend Hasan. Richard and Kate are enjoying a holiday away from Nico, the goth daughter in the Garfield and Dreads and Molly were travelling around the world when they stopped off in Hasan’s village where they have been renting a room for the last 5 months. They seem reluctant to move on.
    People are all made by me with the exception of Pete (still calls Wolfie Mum), Richard and Kate.

  14. My Garfield - In the beginning Updated

    After I finished Villa Madeleine for my baby grandaughter, I embarked on a "big girl's" dolls house. This is my first attempt and I am taking it slow and easy. My ambitions for this house are that it will be something I can give to Maddie when she's older. I hope I make a good enough job.
