The Arrival of Tilly at Regent Street

 Hello Everyone,

Today I am very happy to introduce a new arrival at Regent Street who will be living right above The Miniaturist. 

Her name is Tilly she had quit a long way to travel and now she's settling in.  She has such a beautiful face. She fitted perfectly in the bedroom above the Miniaturist. 


I think she will be quite comfortable here and it's like she was meant to be in this room. 

I couldn't resist not taking some photos of her. 






This beauty was made also by my dear friend Beverley Senatore. I am very sure she will be very happy being part of Regent Street. 

This is all for today. I know it is a very quick post, but I had to share her with you 

Make sure to keep tuned for the next update and news at My Miniature World.

Take Care and See You Soon.

Hugs,

 Hello Everyone,

The weekend is here once again. How are you all? Hope you are all feeling well. I have been under the weather for the past week. It has been quite rough but I am getting better.  I guess it's the change of weather itself that played a nasty trick.

I am very pleased to introduce the family 'De Forbin' who will be residing in Le Chateau. 

Here is the Family tree to give you a better idea who is who.


So we start off with the Land Lords Forbin, Seigneur Frederic and his wife Dame Marguerite. Together they have five children; the eldest a son and four daughters.

Baby Fanny has a New Family!

 Hello Everyone,

How are you all? Just a quick post to share the great news that Baby Fanny has a New Family. 

You all remember Master Ben,  The sweet little boy that every Winter is quite poorly.  The good news is that now he has a baby sister called Fanny. 


Fanny resembles her older brother and the little tot loves him to pieces. Mrs Hayward enjoys reading stories to both her children  especially when it is time to call it a night. 


 Baby Fanny has fitted in so well and I am so pleased that she is part of the Hayward family that live in Regent Street just above The Apothecary Cures & Remedies. 




Master Ben feels much better having a baby sister that keeps him busy and occupied. 

Hope you like the new addition to this family. Make sure to keep tuned for the next updates.

House Keeping in 'Le Château'.

 Hello Everyone,

Are you all set for another weekend? Hope you are all well. As 'Le Château' is almost done and ready, the new family will soon be moving in so our lovely Maid Margo and the amazing Cook Inès are already preparing to welcome his lordship and his family in their new home. 


The lovely maid Margo.  She is always on the go.  She wakes up early and spends her days doing shores. After a day's work she go helps Inès, the cook. The poor thing doesn't have time to rest so the best way is to bathe her swollen ankles in warm water.

Margo the maid



Then there is the wonderful cook Inès who you will find busy in the kitchen. 

Inès The Cook


Inès is preparing dinner in her lovely kitchen. I have decorated the kitchen table with my own sculptured polymer clay miniatures. 


Inès and Margot to get along quite well.  Here are some pictures of how the complete kitchen. The lovely dolls were made by my dear friend and doll artist Beverley Senatore.




I hope you like how the kitchen turned out. I have to say I am very pleased with the outcome.

My Miniature World Featured on 'Il-Familja" Magazine!

 Hello Everyone,

Hope you are all well and that you are having a good week. The weather has really changed here in Malta. My beautiful Summer Sunny Days have disappeared and in the last few days it has been very cloudy and stormy. I have to say this type of weather doesn't help me at all. 

Today I wanted to share with you that My Miniature World was featured in 'Il-Familja" a government magazine by the Ministry for Social Justice and Solidarity, The Family and Children's Rights.



I was interviewed by Ms Mary Ann Zammit a few months ago and the article was featured for the month of September on Issue 16.

The article is written in Maltese and can be found in Page 20 through this link "Id-Djar tal-Pupi" but as the majority of my followers are not Maltese I have translated the article for you in English trough this link "Dolls Houses"

Two of my favorite dolls have been featured . Miss Leah named after my youngest daughter. Miss Leah was also my first doll made by Beverely and was my inspiration for Regent Street


Also our sweet Miss Holly was featured next to her new Christmas Shop. Last year she had inspired me to make short stories forming 'The 12 Days of Christmas".At the moment our sweet Holly is preparing for her next installment and is working on her new Shop.


A Big thank you goes to the Editor Tonio Bonello for the opportunity to be featured in this publication and to Mary Ann Zammit for interviewing me and writing such a wonderful article about my work. 

Lately My Miniature World was quite busy and we had a few changed done to the museum to make more space for the new additions.


This is all for today. I hope you will like the article. Also I am very happy to say that Le Chateau is almost done so I will be sharing the last few posts very soon.  Make sure to keep tuned for the next updates.

Take Care and See You Soon,

Hugs,

Adding more to the Study in Le Château

Hello Everyone,

How are you all? Hope you are enjoying your weekend. My beloved Summer is over and now the kids are all prepared to start their new scholastic year, so I was quite busy in the past few weeks. 

Today I will be sharing with you the new additions to the study room which is next to the library. 

The Study

It was quite tricky to decorate but at the end I managed to achieve what I wanted. I started off by staining the furniture pieces in a Georgian Walnut.  At the back you will find a glass cabinet with books that I made and added 2 ornaments. 



Then I worked on the desk, where I got to add some interesting miniatures. 



The Books, paper and the ink well with quill have all been made by me. 




I have also made and hand painted some accessories to decorate the fireplace mantel which are a pair of Ormolu mounted Vases and a Mantel Clock. They fitted in so nicely with the wall paper and with the style of the room.

 

Next to the fireplace you will find a table display cabinet which holds some of my father's hand painted weapons; a rapier,  a pair of dueling pistols and a dagger.

  

In the center of the room I worked on a World Globe. It wasn't easy but I am so happy with the outcome.





Here are some photos of the complete room. 




I hope you like what I have done so far and I can't wait to finish this project. Now I will continue working on the kitchen and I could say that the interior will be complete.  I can't wait to share with you all the lovely dolls that will be dwelling in this house. 

So this is all for today. Make sure to keep tuned for the next updates and news.

Take Care and See You Soon.

Hugs,
