My miniature bike…

This bike is one of the few things in the mini-house that I didn’t make from scratch. I was lucky enough to find it as a fairtrade product in a small shop in Berlin. It is made only from recycled cans by streetkids in Cape Town.  I did customize it a bit though to make it look more like mine. Now what I need to make is tiny little bags with dods on them.
For the first time in my mini-home project I’m running behind. We have got a new couch that obsoletes my prior work, now I have to make a new one! I keep moving around the furnitures too, but luckily that’s not a big problem because most of the items in the house are movable too… With all this redoing of furnitures and not enough time on my hands it feels like I’m not really getting anywhere… Anyway; this bike is new and I like it -do you?

    So lovely! What are you going to do when you finish your house? Maybe it will never be totally finished!
