The Delft Blue Project

Hello Everyone,

How are you? Hope you are well. I have been busy like always but I am very happy to say that I have completed a new room box which I called "The Delft Blue Project".

My beautiful Delft in The Netherlands. The medieval city of Vermeer. I fell in love with the city of Delft the second I saw it. I love the streets, the history, the buildings, the canals, the shops and obviously the Delft blue porcelain.  Every time I visit The Netherlands, I always try to visit Delft. If I had to move to The Netherlands, Delft is the place that I would want to live in.

Through out the years, when I visit Delft I always get Delft blue miniatures for my dollshouses or just for keep sakes.

The little miniatures inspired me to do a Delft Blue room box.

I had this cute room box which a dear friend gave to me a few years ago.

I have painted it, printed a Delft blue flooring and wall paper and also changed the little knob of the drawer.

I worked on a few miniature furniture pieces to compliment the room box. The little lamp shade was also customized to fit in the project.

I have collected some nice pieces from Delft and one of my favorites is the tiny figurine of the Children kissing. I also love the mama cat with her kitten.

I made a few Delft Blue ceramics which originally are from the Royal Delft. 

I enjoyed doing this project as it came so natural do.

Here are some pictures of the complete project.

I have to say I am very proud of it and the nice thing about it is that every time I go to Delft and get a miniature, I can always add it to this project.

I hope you like what I have done.

This is all for today, make sure to keep tuned for the next updates and news.

Take Care and See You Soon.

Winnie the Pooh at the Disney Dolls' House.

 Hello Everyone,

Hope you are all well and looking forward to the weekend. As you all know I am building this Disney Dolls' House which comes in parts every week. It is a long process but definitely worth waiting.  Sometimes you get parts to build the building, sometimes you get some nice accessories for the room and sometimes you get some furniture pieces in kit form. 

Down in the basement of the Disney Dollshouse you will find Winnie the Pooh. We all know that Pooh Bear and his friends live in the 100 Acre Wood so I am really glad that they found a spot for him. Winnie the Pooh brings so many sweet memories of when I was a child and later on he was passed on to my children whom they loved just as much as I did. 

At the moment I am working on the basement part of the dollshouse. While waiting for the parts sometimes I tend to work on the furniture pieces too and I have completed some of Winnie's most important furniture pieces.

I am happy that Pooh Bear was one of the first figures to come with the part work.  I have never had him as a figurine so I am glad that now he will also be part of the Dollshouse. Love his smile. 

One of the first furniture kits that arrived for Winnie the Pooh was actually the tall mirror. We all know how important the mirror is to Pooh especially when he comes to do his daily exercise in front of it to improve his appetite for honey. 

It comes in bits and pieces but they all fit nicely like a puzzle.  Pooh Bear looks happy. 

After the mirror I got to build the cupboard where Pooh Bear stores some of his honey pots and his table.  

On the table you will get to find his flower pot and his kite that he enjoy flying with his friends. 

I hope you like the furniture pieces. For those in Malta who are interested in getting this Disney Dolls' House collection make sure to order it from Agenda Book Shop

This is all for today, Hope you enjoyed it. Make sure to keep tuned for the next updates and news. 

Take Care and See You Soon.

Villa Marie - Albin Schönherr 1950's Dollshouse

Hello Everyone,

How are you? Hope you are all well.  You all know that at the end of January, when I went to the Dolls House & Miniature Fair in Expo Houten, I got this cute German Vintage dolls house 'Villa Marie'.

Villa Marie is an Albin Schönherr dolls house made in the early 1950's. Albin Schönherr worked for the manufacturer Moritz Gottschalk in Marienberrg in Germany in the late 1800's. In the year 1893 Albin Schönherr established his own dollshouse business in Niederlauterstein in Germany. 

Villa Marie is still in a mint condition considering it's age.  It still has it's original wall papers and flooring. The front decor is still intact. I assumed the previous owners tried to restore it by sanding down the sides of the little house and removed the original windows. Thank goodness that the damaged done with the attempt of the restorations is very minimal.

I will mildly try to restore it without destroying it's age and charm. I will try to make the windows myself,  keeping in mind that I will remain faithful to it's original windows.   

It's is a 1:16 scale dolls house, like most of the vintage dolls house of it's time. I had a stash of some vintage Barton, Lundby and Dol Toi furniture pieces that fitted in the little two roomed house perfectly. 

In the entrance you will find the living room with a sitting room set and kitchen area. 

On the top floor you will find the bed room.

In the little baby's cot there is a Vintage knitted miniature doll Frieda made by Annelies de Kort and Otto the antique Hertwig, tiny bisque teddy made in Germany.

Lotti the antique Hertwig doll will be living in this cute house. 

I think she looks very happy in her new home. 

I might be adding some more vintage accessories to it and see if I can add some lights to the house. I will keep you updated with the progress of the restoration once it is complete.

This is all for today. I hope you have enjoyed this cute vintage house. 

Take Care and See You Soon.

The Barrel Organ at Regent Street

 Hello Everyone, 

How are you all? Hope you had a great weekend! Today it must be one of the coldest days here in Malta so I am trying to keep warm. 

Today I have a very special project that I have just completed. It was a project that I always wanted to try to do and finally I put my head to make a miniature Barrel Organ. 

I was so thrilled that I got to build it and hand paint it. I also managed to add a winding music box that plays the tune of 'Swan Lake'.

It had been a while since I painted in miniature but I really enjoyed painting the tiny flowers and leaves. 

Mr. William Harris is the owner of the beautiful barrel organ and he spends his days playing it in Regent Street. 

Mr. Harris also has a companion that steals the show every time. Mr. Twiggy the cheeky monkey is a darling that loves children. He is always with his cup collecting coins. 

Mr. Twiggy was made by the Dutch artist Betty of Betty Miniatures.

I also got to make a small video so  you can hear the tune it plays. 

The Barrel Organ is now set up in front of the Dicken's Book Shop. 

Mr. William Harris and the little girl are both made by the doll artist Beverely Senatore. 

I hope you like what I have done. It took me a couple of weeks to complete but it was definitely worth the time. 

This is all for today. Make sure to keep tuned for the next up date and latest news. 

Take Care and See You Soon.
