Just thought I would share with you something I have made for a dear friend in Italy. Monica has beautiful ideas and relayed to me what she would like for a specific size room in her dollhouse. I made this working to Monica's measurements and sketches. She has been very patient and waited a long time for me to finally get around to finishing it.
Here I have just placed the kitchen pieces in the same footprint for her room and just put a few things on it to take the pictures. Everything I have made the only purchased pieces are the glass jars on the mantle over the cooker, which I decorated with bits and bobs. Also the bit of greenery on top of the corner wall shelf was a purchased piece.
It was great to see all our family and catch up on so many things that time allowed.
I was really lucky this visit I was actually able to visit my sisters' seafront stall (the last one for the season). As usual they produced some lovely pieces and attracted a good crowd, they are so talented. Of course I took some photos and am now busy copying their items in miniature.
Before I started my miniaturising of their pieces I just had the urge to make something for the inside of some lanterns I bought ages ago and have had nothing in them and so they looked a little sorry for themselves. This first one I have filled is just put together with my pieces that I have made and have just stuffed into drawers or boxes. This is when I need my sisters here as I could just give them the boxes and they would just know what goes together, whilst I take ages 'phaffing' around not really getting anywhere!
I love dogs and have been making a few with my 3D Printer, you will see one curled up in the photos. I have a few Westie ones also. My garden ornaments I have been making for ages now (must put some on my site !
I need shelf fillers for my dollhouses and I am sure you all agree it's all these little touches that make a scene so much better.
I will shortly be visiting my sisters in Guernsey and can't wait to see all their new ideas and I will be ready with my camera to capture all their creations in their homes to miniature everything down for my miniature homes.
I have photos of things that I have made from the pics taken of their pieces last year that I have miniaturised and have just grouped a few to give you an example. I will be adding some of these items to my website, but not until I get back from my trip.
