The new apartment

Yesterday Chris and I went to see the new apartment we will be moving to by the end of January :)
It is absolutely beautiful as it has got lots of old features, including ancient stone stairs that lead to the front door on the 3rd floor. It is much bigger than the apartment we are in now, and we needed that.
Here are the pictures of it, Chris is in most of them *G*

rat mobile in progress

Ok, so you buy a car, to be exact a Peugeot (don't ask me why) 406 1.9 TD in silver grey from 1998. Not a slow one, just decent and practical, but as for the outside, insanely boring. To remedy that, Chris and I got ourselves inspired by Banksy, got some black spray paint and made stencils *Grin*, see below the result:

It is not finished yet, so more pictures to come :)

Hiking stick

A project of mine from a couple of weeks back. While doing a mountain I found a very good long stick. After first drying it for a while I carved it and than painted it. Finally last week I varnished it. So yesterday was the day to try it out as we did Bidean nam Bian (Glencoe). It was a beautiful day to climb a mountain and my, did I enjoy that :)

So here are some pictures of my stick:

Update on Mural

The pefect view for the bedroom, a Loch. It took me a while to come up with this idea, because the limited space was not good for much.
As for the ivy, it is a lot of work, sigh.....
