1:48th Scale Miniature Scale Sitting Room Furniture

Hello Everyone,

Here I am once again. Apart from being constantly busy with my work, I am trying to fit some time to enjoy my passion too. 

Now that the Traditional Dolls House is practically done from my side. I am about to share with you my newest project.....but before doing so I wanted to share with you what I have finished off yesterday. 

1:48 Scale miniature sitting room furniture
My dear friend and fellow miniaturist Melissa from The Netherlands sent me a few of her kits in 1:48 scale that she does. They are all precisely laser cut using cardboard and fiber board. I had the pleasure to meet Melissa last October at the Big Event Fair in 's-Hertogenbosch. I have used her 1:12 scale  kits in The Master Swordsman Pub & Inn which look so beautiful displayed in the Parlour. 

Now I have tried out her 1:48 scale kits. You can find her wonderful kits at Etsy Melissa's Mini Wereld and now on her new Web Page Melissa's Mini World. I can assure you, you won't be disappointed. 

As I got quite a few kits that I will be sharing with you gradually some of them will be used for a 1:48 scale project. The pieces that I will be sharing with you now will be part of the new 1:12 scale project.


The kits come with full instructions that you will find quite easy to follow.


Even though they are small and tiny they are easy to assemble especially with the help of  tweezers. I painted them in a dark shade of brown.


Even though they are made out of cardboard with the use of glue and paints they are quite sturdy. Once the paints and glue were full dried I added the cushioning to the seats of the sofa and armchairs.



Here are the pieces all ready to be used in the New Project.


From here I want to thank Melissa. Looking forward to see her again in the beginning of March at the Dolls House Netherland Show in Arnhem.

Can't wait to share with you the new project, so make sure to keep tuned. Hope you like the new pieces.

Take Care and See You Soon.

Hugs,

Continuing with The Traditional Dollshouse

Hello everyone,

Hope you are all well. Finally I am going to share with you some more works on The Traditional Dolls house. The building is now complete. 

The Traditional Dolls House
I continued where I left off. I have wall papered, floored and added the lights to the study, the main bedroom and the nursery. 





I like the combination of colors used for the whole house.



I added a few accessories to the front, to make it look more like the 'Classical' dolls house with the door portico and wood strips.


The inside of the front was wall papered according to the rooms and I have added the curtains. 


When everything was ready and the fronts were hinged, the girls Leah and Raquel started adding the furniture pieces and accessories.




I totally enjoy watching them play together and discussing how they are going decorate the rooms. 

I will be sharing with you how they have decorated the rooms later on, so make sure to keep tuned for the next updates.

Take Care and See You Soon.

Hugs,

Happy Valentine's Day!

Good morning everyone,

Happy Valentine's Day to you all! This year My Miniature World will be celebrating it's very first Valentine's Day since it's opening. Frankly I am not the type of person that celebrates Valentine's Day for the simple reason I believe that love should be celebrated everyday throughout the year. 


In Regent Street we have a few couples that made it official. I am sure that romance will blossom more eventually. 


Finally Sir Edwin Barrett and Miss Leah have officially declared themselves as a couple.

Miss Leah's older sister Miss Quelina has been seeing Mr. Edgard Hevey. Quite a cute couple.

 My favorite couple in Regent Street are the two love birds in The Master Swordsman Pub & Inn. The Bar tender Larkin and the sweet barmaid Susanna. Larkin has proposed to Susanna on the day.

Apart from Regent Street, My Miniature World has a new couple. I am so looking forward to start the new project of Pembroke Grange, even if for the time being it is on hold. Her is Miss Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy. 



The two dolls have been dressed up in Regency Style and Mr. Darcy is the splitting image of Colin Firth in Pride & Prejudice.

A big thank you goes to my favorite doll maker Beverly Senatore who makes my lovely dolls. Thank you Beverly for making my projects more alive. 

Wishing you lots of love and warm hugs.

See you soon!

Last Friday I got to share my small shadow box 'The Timekeeper's Shop' on Life & Style TV Show on the Maltese Channel Net TV..

I also got to share with the audience what to expect for the next show There will be another room box which will have two rooms. This one will be placed right on top of the Library 'The Dickens Book Shop', which eventually would look more like a house than just room boxes

New Toys for the Little Angel's Toy Shop

Hello everyone,

How are you all? Hope you had a great weekend and that you are tucked in. It's been quite cold here and mother nature hasn't been kind to us. I can't recall of feeling this much cold and having so many rainy days like this winter. Can't wait for Spring and the warm weather. 

Today I will be sharing with you some new miniature toys for the Little Angel's Toy Shop. Like most of you know I have decided to upgrade a bit the tiny toy shop. Mrs. Ella has been doing a great job and a few new toys just arrived for her.



The first to arrive was the miniature hand painted, fully jointed Pinocchio. This one was hand painted by my father. One of my favorite toys I must say. I remember as a little Rebecca I had one of my own made out wood with the same colors. Thinking about it I still have it, although Matthias is now the new master of my Pinocchio. It stands proudly like always in his bedroom.


Mrs. Ella was very happy with the new Pinocchio.




The next two toys are the hand painted push along horse and the fully jointed teddy which I painted. 



The next lot are the four pull along animals. The bunny, the dog, the penguin and the pig. The four toys are hand painted by me too. 


As there will be more toys to come, I have added a new piece of furniture. 



Here is how the toy shop looks like so far. 



This is all for today. Keep tuned for the next updates of the on going projects at My Miniature World.

Take Care and See You Soon.

Hugs,

1904 Antique Miniature Book

Hello Everyone,

Once again another week has passed by and now here we are in the last weekend of January. Time does go by fast. Hope you are all fine and keeping warm. It has been very cold here. Winter is just not my cup of tea. Can't wait for my warmer days. 

Today I will be sharing with you my latest treasure that crossed my path without me looking for it. Funnily enough it came to me just at the right time, after I completed The Dickens Book Shop project.


 The little antique miniature book is 115 years old and it is called The Cricket on The Hearth by Charles Dickens. It is one of my favorite books by the author.

It has a soft leather cover which has seen better days, but I have to admit that the book is in pristine condition considering it's age. 


The book goes way back since 1904.



It has fine paper and is fully readable and has eight beautiful illustrations. 




The pages of the book are also edged with gold. 



I have to admit I am very happy with it. 



This miniature book inspired me to make another miniature readable book called, The Toymaker and His Blind daughter from The Cricket on The Hearth by Charles Dickens. It is an extract of the same  book. The nice thing about The Dickens Book Shop project is that it will never be complete. I  will keep on adding more of my own books and there will be several more books of Charles Dickens. 




Talking about the Dickens Book Shop project, I also wanted to share with you that the Dolls House Emporium have shared this project of their facebook page and other social media.




Thank you so much Dolls House Emporium for sharing and enjoying my work.

Hope you have liked the miniature book. Keep tuned for the next update on The Traditional Dolls House as Leah and I will continue working on it during the weekend. 

Take Care and See You Soon.

Hugs,
