A telescope was on my to-do-list for a very long time
and when I started with my tower
I knew the roof terrace would be a good spot for a nice telescope!
I used most of the day yesterday looking for parts and trying different parts on different spots
and at the end of the afternoon I was finally satisfied with the result!
this morning I attached the last gears and decoration pieces
and I think it was worth all the trouble and frustration......
I love it!!!!!!!!!!!!

Of course there immediately was a volunteer for trying the telescope....
but I'm wondering if he was looking for stars...
the telescope was suspiciously aimed at the neighbor's bedroom window

Some photos...of the telescope that is...not of the neighbor


I bought some more dragons for my tower!
2 little ones by The Mini Dragon Queen

And a babydragon in an acorncup by Feythcrafts

Yesterday a friend visited and she gave me this lobster.... 
She didn't have room for it anymore in her dollshouse.
But he won't go into the tower...
I will find another nice spot for him

E-beertje - helpful as always... ;O) You did a wonderful job on this telescope, love all those steampunk parts. And of course I love your dragons, we have the same taste in these things, no doubt. It's fun that you were thinking about purchasing this wonderful dragon in the sink, too. I couldn't resist him, there is no place in the tower for him, but he will get the place of honor he deserves... ;O)

Daydreamer said...

Wow, Margriet! What a MAGNIFICENT Telescope!!! I am impressed! I LOVE the roof terrace and the little decorations you have added, but the telescope is SO well done!! I can see why eBeertje is playing with it.... I would be too!
And your new dragon babies are just gorgeous too! The whole Tower is looking Fantastic!
