For your convenience

Before I get any further with what I have been up to, I wanted to show everyone a very special item that I have recently purchased.

Unfortunately, I do not know who made it.  There was no box or label.  I love it though.

I saw this outside toilet and knew I had to have it.  It is made of resin.  I haven't needed to touch it at all.  It is perfect just the way it is.

I love all the little details that are all round the outside and inside.  There is even a hole in the back pre prepared for lighting at a later point.  Something I think would be great for the future.
It is just waiting now for the right character to be found in here with a shocked look on his face.  Judging by the artisans that were at the Miniatura earlier this month, I should be able to find one next time I go there.  This building is just crying out for a more unique person I think.


  1. I love it but here in Australia the outside loo wasn't connected to water, just had a pan that was taken away each week and an empty one in it's place. They were always way down the back-yard and full of horrible spiders and often had a vine or creeper growing over the top. Never an enjoyable visit especially in the night!!
    Hugs, Vicki.

    1. oh my goodness, that would not be good for me, I usually awake in the night and need a trip lol

  2. It is an exciting purchase. I remember that toilet from my childhood, when we visited some family on the country. It was really cross-border having to use the toilet there. There was no water connected, it was just a "barrel" and you could see other people's droppings.

    I look forward to seeing your character to your toilet.

  3. thank you everyone for your comments. I can think of so many ideas for this and all comical. Trying to decide at the moment whether to pluck up the courage to attempt making a character myself for it. :)
