Working on The Main Bedroom - Le Château

 Hello Everyone,

How are you all? Hope you all had a good start this week. I have to say I am very happy that during last weekend I got to work a bit more on the French Project Le Château. Finally I finished decorating the walls, ceiling and flooring for the Main Bedroom.


It was a nightmare! I don't know what possessed me to decide to paint the wall panels. It took me months to complete three walls. It didn't need to take that long to paint, but it was as tedious as a twice-told tale and even worse.  

But like I always say "No Sacrifice, No Victory!" At end, it was worth it. I am very pleased with my efforts.

I have printed my own ceiling rose for the room and painted it with some rich colors to give the room more warmth. 


Finally I added the door that I painted to match with the rest of the walls and now it's all ready to be decorated.



I started adding the furniture pieces that I intend to use. There will be some modifications done to them and the room wouldn't even be recognizable from this. 


 This is how the projects looks so far. 


I hope you like what I have done so far. Can't wait to continue working on the bedroom. Make sure to keep tuned for the next update. 

Take Care and See You Soon.

Hugs,

Milly Collins Ambassador for dolls at My Miniature World

Hello Everyone,

Hope you are all well. I have been very very busy  in the past month. Have been making lots of new miniatures for clients. I also have arranged a few dolls houses in the museum and now it looks much better. 

Today I wanted to share with you a new doll that arrived before Christmas that was made by my dear friend Beverley Senatore. 



Milly Collins! An amazing doll! She is a BJ fashion doll. What's special about my Milly Collins is that she is the first doll of her line and has a number '1' on the back of her neck.  She arrived in her designed box with an extra outfit and accessories. Beverley is now making more dolls and outfits for her and I am looking forward to them.  Milly is definitely worth her price. 



She has such a beautiful face and I like the 50's hair style that she has. 


Milly has fitted nicely at My Miniature World. She is quite happy. The other dolls welcomed her whole heartily. 

She will be looking after the museum and welcoming visitors on their arrival. 

As my Miniature World has close to 100 of Beverley's dolls, Milly is now the ambassador for dolls and she will be having her say about each and every doll that lives here. 


So make sure to keep an eye on future posts as there will be a special section in the blog for Milly, describing each doll in detail. 


So this is all for today, Hopefully I will be updating you very soon with new News and my progress on Le Chateau. Make sure to keep tuned.

Take Care and See You Soon.

Hugs,

Decorating the Sitting room of Le Château

 Hello Everyone,

How are you all? Hope you had a great weekend and that you are all well. Finally this weekend I got to work a bit more on my project Le Château.

Before sharing my progress, I wanted to welcome the new followers to My Miniature World Blog and also I have a WINNER!!! to announce for the miniature Victorian Photo album. I added the strips of papers with your lovely names, popped them in a paper bag and my assistant (my little Leah) drawn out a name. So the luck Winner is Bethany Smith. Congratulations Bethany. Kindly contact me privately with your details so I can send it off to you. There will be more give-aways in the next couple of months so make sure not to miss out!

Coming back to my project, I finally got to decorate the sitting room for my Le Château.


First I started off by decorating the wall above the fire place with a framed painting.


On the mantle piece I made a clock and two cherub candle sticks that suite it quite well. I am so happy how these accessories turned out after I hand painted them. 



The room is quite elaborated as it is, so for furniture, I only wanted to add the sofa, two arm chairs and a small coffee table. I got this sitting room set with all intentions to give it a make-over and I have to say I was quite successful. 


After I worked  on it and added more detail, it suited the room much better.


I painted the face of the coffee table in a way that looked more like marble.


It had been a while since I worked with polymerclay and it gives me great joy when I do. I have made the fruit for the fruit bowl and I am thrilled with the final results. 


Here are a few photos of the complete sitting room. 





I hope you like the sitting room.  I can't wait to continue working on this project. I think the residents will be quite happy with their house. 

This is all for today. Make sure to keep tuned for the next updates. 

Take Care and See You Soon.

Hugs,
