Quill with pen nib!

Sometimes, it is very dificult to make real good
detailed pictures from a miniature. For instance,
I have made this beautiful quill, but it was not
possible for me to take a good picture with my
camera. Finaly a friend of mine took these pictures,
and I'm very happy with it.

The pen nib is smaller then one milimeters.

The picture below I have made, to show you how tiny
it is, but such a perfect treasure from nature.

The quill is for sale on my Etsy Shop!

I have to go to the toilet again!

I spent some time working at tidbits for the
toilet. Even though it is a little room, doesn't
mean that it has to be boring, lol!

I want the walls full with little frames, and
already found one waiting to be hanged up on
the wall! Mercedes made it for me, it is a picture
of Sylvia and Mercedes in Paris, waiting for me!

The other frame hanger I made myself. I already
had made some for my friends but never one for

Mercedes made a wired basket and I had to
make one too...look at het blog for a link to
make one!

I pulled down the mirror from a broken toy
foon and added a bow. To make the bow I
used some lead and painted it first gold and
than black to age it. In the past I made a lot
of frames using the bow technique.

The little sink for the toilet is still missing, but
I already added the glass tray...and if you look
close you can see someone has put up some
lipstick today!
I made the lipstick some years ago, and the
cap actualy can be used on it just like the real one!

Kitchen Garden Update!

There has happened a lot in the kitchen garden!
A little bit of sun and rain and look, the garden is
full with vegetables!

At the pictures the vegetables look very green
and somehow a little bit fake. (duh, they are fake!)
What I mean is, in real the collors are much nicer
and it looks much more real than in the pictures.
The garden need much more details,but for
now it will do!

Result of the barbed wire!

I did not wanted to keep you waiting to long,
so here is a little sneek preview to what I'm
up to at the moment!
I am working on a kitchen garden!
It is very small and there will be growing herbs
and greens to use for prepairing delicious dishes.
There will be a garden with flowers too, but that
have to wait for the next time.
If some of you can remeber I worked on a little shet
with garden, but I sold the whole thing,because it wasn't
at 1;12 scale. I have sold it without the minies and now
I'm so glad I can use the beautiful minies again.
This time it is going to stay!
This gate was my firts present from Mercedes!
It was the lid of a wired box, and I'm so happy
that I finaly can use it just for the right project.
The box I have transformed into a henhouse, and
it will be used in an other part of the garden.
This little water scene I also made for the
other garden, I just had to put it out of the box
where it was hidden all the other stuff.

The birdhouses were also a gift from my friend

As you can see there is still a lot of work to
be done. It needs much more details, the
little bricks are to clean etc, etc.
I have to make the greens and herbs,
and I need to buy some potting soil to fill up
the empty space at the floor.
But for now it has to wait until an other time!
I first want to finish the little toilet....

You have to wait a little while, before I can show you more!
If you click the foto, it will blow up and you can see the detail
much was quite a job to make it!

I have taken some vacation, to spend some
time at home. The last time it was very hectic
in my life and I needed some rest.
That is why I have some time to make
minies...and I absolutely love it!
There are a million to do things on my list, so it
was difficult to pick one?
I started to make a toilet which will be placed
behind the is the second room which
will be a part of the major project I have in mind!
The toilet is adjacent to a hallway with a laundry
room opposite. At the end of the hall is a door that
allow access to the garden. (which will be the next

The most time I spend on making the floor
for the toilet.
I wanted a cast granite floor, just like they
used to be in older houses!
Well.... I succeed to make one! I used
some coarse sand for it. I love the result
very much.

Of course some things are missing, like a
wash-hand basin and a door...but I just could not
wait to show it!

Street Sign

Yesterday, Sylvia came to visit me!
Of course we had a great time together, and we
had much fun!

Sylvia would not be Sylvia, if she came empty-handed!
She made me this wonderful street sign, to put
up on the wall at the flea market!
