Es wird fischig / It gets fishy

Hallo,

wie die Überschrift schon vermuten lässt - das Menü des Tages bei "BiWuBären on the Blog" ist Fisch! *schmunzel* Aber wir servieren unseren Fisch natürlich weder gebraten noch gekocht sondern verbastelt - und zwar im Bärchenhaus. Ein Haus mit einem maritimen Thema braucht halt den einen oder anderen Fisch irgendwo... zum Beispiel auf Kisten, die Stauraum in zwei Regalen bieten, die zukünftig im Wohnzimmer des Bärchenhauses stehen werden. 
... as the headline already suggests - today's menu at "BiWuBären on the Blog" is fish! *smile* But we're serving our fish neither fried nor cooked but crafted - in the Beary House. A house with a maritime theme needs for sure a few fishies here and there... for example at boxes which will offer storage space in two shelves which will find a place in the Beary House's living room some day. 


Diese Plastikboxen waren in dem großen Paket mit Miniaturen, das wir von Jennifer zu Weihnachten bekommen haben - und sie passten zufälligerweise recht gut in die Regale, die erstens an einen Klassiker aus dem schwedischen Möbelhaus erinnern und zweitens bereits in Birgits Irgendwann-für-Irgendwas-Kisten auf ihren Einsatz warteten. Danach brauchte Birgit nur noch passende Motive zum Bekleben der Boxen und es konnte losgehen.
These plastic boxes were in the huge parcel with miniatures we've received from Jennifer for Christmas - and by chance they were quite a good match to the shelves' compartments which are reminding of a classic from the Swedish furniture store beginning with an "I" and were also already waiting in Birgit's Sometime-for-somewhat-boxes for their showtime. After this Birgit just had to find matching motifs to be attached to the boxes and she could start.

Jennifer von "Plushpussycat" hat leider das Bloggen aufgegeben, daher kein Link / Sadly Jennifer from "Plushpussycat" gave up blogging, that's why we're adding no link


Jede Box wurde mit allen vier Motiven beklebt, man kann sich also aussuchen, welches Motiv sichtbar ist. Und das sieht dann so aus:
All four motifs were glued on every box; this way it's possible to choose which motif shall be visible. And this is how it looks like:


In der Zwischenzeit ist auch die erste Seitenwand des Bärchenhauses fertig geworden.
In the meantime the first sidewall of the Beary House was finished too.


Birgit sagt, sie freut sich schon total auf die zweite Wand... *kicher* Um sich die Schnippelei am Giebel zu ersparen, hat Birgit den mit Holz verkleidet. Dazu hat sie aus Fotokarton eine Schablone geschnitten...
Birgit says she would really look forward to starting with the second wall... *giggle* And for saving herself the cutting work at the gable Birgit covered it with wood. For this she cut out a pattern from cardboard...


... und bei der Gelegenheit festgestellt, dass die Seiten dieses durch das Dach gebildeten Dreiecks nicht gleich lang sind. *seufz* Die Schablone wurde mit Holz verkleidet...
... and by doing this she found out that the sides of this triangle built from the roof are not even. *sigh* The pattern was covered with wood...


... und im gleichen Blau angemalt, das bei der Fassade z. B. für die Fensterläden verwendet wurde.
... and painted in the same blue which was used at the front part, for example for the window shutters. 


Und weil das zusammen mit den Steinen immer noch langweilig aussehen würde, hat Birgit sich noch einmal in ihren Irgendwann-für-Irgendwas-Kisten umgesehen und gefunden, was sie gesucht hat:
And because this would still look boring together with the bricks Birgit had another look into her Sometime-for-somewhat-boxes and found what she had searched for:


Die Fische sind aus geprägtem Papier und der Seestern eigentlich ein Zierknopf, der ein wenig Farbe erhielt und zusammen mit den Fischen nun so an der Seitenwand aussieht:
The fish are made of embossed paper and the starfish used to be a decorative button which received a bit of paint and looks like this now at the side wall together with the fish:

 
Sieht doch ein bisschen aus wie Fische im Wasser, oder? *grins* 
Looks a bit like fish in the water, doesn't it? *grin*


Naja, wenigstens ist es weniger langweilig als vorher. Und auch wenn das zugegebenermaßen keine allzu realistische Außenwanddekoration für ein Haus ist, aber hey... wir sind's... seit wann kümmern wir uns um Realismus? *lach* Aber wir kümmern uns stattdessen um noch mehr Fische für's Bärchenhaus - und dafür brauchen wir dieses Teil hier.
Well, at least it's now less boring than before. And although we have to admit that this is apart from being a realistic decoration for an outer wall of a house, but hey... it's us... since when do we care at all about realism? *LOL* But instead of this we are going to care about more fish for the Beary House - and for this we're going to need this piece.


Was daraus wird, zeigen wir Euch in einem anderen Post... bis dahin alles Gute und passt weiter gut auf Euch!
What will become of this will be a topic in another post... until then all the best for you and don't stop to take good care of yourselves!

Liebe Grüße / Hugs

Hallo Fluby, Rosey und Birgit! The boxes for filling in your shelf compartments look really wonderful, but the more to me because they're made in my favorite blue ;O)!!! And I love those maritime motifs.
But oh my, what alot of work for cutting all of those bricks, I can imagine that you'll used something else for the beveling top of the gable. What a disaster that the sides were not equal to each other, but as usually your Birgit has found the best solution there is, she is so clever!! And the added ornaments in maritime style fit perfect to the blue and make the gable a feast for the (fish)eyes ;)!
For the piece of furniture: are you going to make a fish shop for Beary House :O)?? I don't think so, because Fluby and Rosey don't seem to me big fish fans, more strawberry and rose fans hehehehe...
Past week we had very hot temperatures here, which ended up in enormous thunderstorms......for the rest of The Netherlands, again we didn't catch a drop of it :(. But when I see the television with streets under water and lots of damage and problems, I think we had the best part of this change of weather, isn't it? Now it's still hot, clammy and stuffy weather....when will it end for my region.
Have a lovely weekend.
Stay safe, take care for yourselves!
Liebe Grüsse, Schepje und Ilona

The boxes are fantastic with those motifs and look perferct in the shelves' compartments.
The first sidewall of the Beach house is precious and so maritime with the decorative fish.
Take care.

Congratulations on finishing the brick facade (on this side at least) and on your fantastic idea for the gable! You have THE BEST stash in existence and the swimming school of fishies is marvelous!! I love the little decorated cubes, too, and now wonder what they would look like as lamp shades with lights behind the art work??? What will become of the little piece? A bench with storage? A fish tank? Whatever your idea is, I KNOW it's going to be inspirational, creative and adorable!!!

Dear Fluby and Rosey and Birgit too, I am glad to see Birgit has finished half her "Brick Marathon"! And I am even happier to learn she is "looking forward" to the other wall!! LOL! It will be worth it in the end! It already looks great and the addition of the silver fishies is lovely.... although my first thought was "Oh Look... Silver Fishy-shaped Clouds on the Sky"! But if you want to call it the water... who am I to argue!!! The "Fish-themed" decor for the shelf cubes is perfect and brilliant and fun! It reminds me of those picture block puzzles from childhood... a different picture on each side that could make a whole picture when arranged correctly... and creative mayhem when not! I cannot imagine what the table will look like when we see it next.... but I am fairly sure some "creative mayhem" will be involved!!! Keep up the Great work! I really look forward to seeing it all come together! :):):) (And any more mention of the Shortening of the days and the approach of certain C-themed topics will give me nightmares!!! LOL!)

Una casita marinera... Me encanta!!! Qué gran manera de aprovechar esos cajones y tenerlo todo ordenado... quedan perfectos con las fotografías que les habéis puesto 😊 Los peces en la fachada lateral también quedan genial!!! No sé si es una decoración realista, pero pienso como tú, quien ha dicho que deba serlo? El nuestro es un maravilloso mundo de fantasía y esos peces resultan perfectos!!! 😊
Mmn... un fin de entrada con misterio... No dejaré de pensar qué destino vas a dar a ese mueblecito, jaaaa! Me quedo con las ganas de más. Un abrazo!

Dear Birgit,

It has gotten quite fishy indeed. But in a good way! ;-)

I always love to read your posts. The brick facade has turned out great and the acquatic decor is real fun to behold. I can see this house easily standing on the coast near Travemunde or such a place.

I am curious what the piece of furniture for the next post will become. A kitchen worktable perhaps?

The blue you've chosen for the gable reminds me of photos I've seen of the Aegean and especially now that you have the silver fish splashing away in it!
But I also like Betsy's description of them looking like silver fish-shaped clouds way up in the sky. When I was a kid, I used to lie on my back and make pictures from cloud shapes so I imagine that Fluby and Rosie will be doing that too!
Love the fishy panels on the cubes which was Such a Great Idea and now I wonder what you and your beary crew will find to fill them with?????

I love the pieces you have used on the boxes and the colour is perfect. I also really like the way you did the gable of the house - with two layers of wood. The decorative effect is charming. I'm so glad I popped in to say hello! I'm looking forward to seeing the progress. - Marilyn D.

Happy Fourth

Das läuft ja richtig gut. Die Fassade entwickelt sich prächtig und mit den maritimen Elementen wird das Haus etwas ganz besonderes.
Solche Boxen wie auf Bild 1 und 2 habe ich in Originalgrösse in mehrereren dieser Regale vom Schweden. Meine sind aber nicht halb so schön wie die im Bärchenhaus. Was werdet ihr hinein geben? Meine Boxen sind randvoll mit Wolle, Stoffen und.....WOLLE! ;0)

Habt einen schönen Sonntag.
