St. George's Hill

 Hello Everyone,

How are you all? Hope you are having a great week. I have some exciting news to share. Still can't believe it yet even if it has been here for a couple of weeks. Now I can say I am the proud owner of St. George's Hill. 

St. George's Hill


St. George's Hill is an extremely rare dolls house by The Dolls House Emporium going back back to the 1980. It was one of the first designed dolls house by the brand. I had my eyes fixed on this house for the past two years until finally the previous owners agreed to ship it. 

Description in one of the Early DHE Catalog

It is such a special dolls house. It is the only Dolls House from the DHE collection which has side wall windows. For it's age it is in pristine condition. 




The interior hasn't been touched yet. It has nine rooms with an elegant staircase in the center of the house. 



Apart from that, the dolls house fronts are not flat, but quite deep to add small pieces of furniture and accessories to them.









The lovely previous owners made such a wonderful job on the outside of the house. I won't be changing  any of it but I will keep on adding to it. I can't wait to start working on the inside of the house. The good thing is that the interior is still bare so basically I will be giving it its first decor. 

Once 'Le Chateau' project is done, I will start working on this one. 

Hope you like it. Make sure to keep tuned for the next updates and news. 

Take Care and See You Soon.

Hugs,

The Sitting Room in 'Le Château'

 Hello everyone,

Hope you are well and that you had a great weekend. I have so much to share with you. Finally, after weeks of working constantly on the sitting room for 'Le Château', today I can say I have completed it. Actually, let's say that it is ready to be decorated with furniture pieces and accessories. 


It took me several weeks to finish because every little decoration was done by me.... or to be more accurate with the help of my two trustworthy 3D printers. 

It took me hours of measuring, to resize and to make everything fit exactly how I pictured it in my head.  Every pieces was painted to match with the room. 

My favorite two pieces are the niches in the back wall with the two statues; 'The Dancer' by Antonio Canova and The Venus Callipyge. 









The two niches were set in the back corner wall and were divided from each other with one of my false doors leading to my imaginary dining room. 




The fire place was also painted in a way to match the room's colour pallet. The frame on top of the fireplace's mantel piece still needs a nice painting to be added to it.



Finally the ceiling rose was another piece that I made and painted to match the room. 


Here are some pictures of the finished room all set to be decorated. 







Can't believe that it turned out so well. I'm looking forward to decorate this particular room. I hope you like what I have done so far. 

So this is all for today. Make sure to keep tuned for the next update and for more news at My Miniature World. 

Take Care and See You Soon,

Willow's Trunk

 Hello Everyone,

The weekend is here once again! Hope you are all well. Today I wanted to share with you something different. Even though it is not a miniature I thought it would still be interesting to see. A few months ago I found this Vintage Doll Trunk.


 Before all that I also wanted  to share with you that last February I had adopted a sweet Blythe Doll named Willow. I totally love her and she get to keep Posy company when I am not around. 


Even though it might be a bit big for Willow I get to use it to keep her clothes. The trunk opens in two compartments. On the right hand side there is like a dressing table with a stool. 


In the center there is a compartment where supposedly a doll would fit and a wardrobe. I keep Willow's pretty dresses hanging there and her sweaters folded nicely in the drawers. 


On the left hand side you find another compartment that opens  up into a bed with a pretty bedding set. 



I think Willow likes her make shift room. 


Also wanted to tell you that she has a brand new blog called Willow where she will be sharing mostly her fabulous dresses and outfits that she gets from all over the world.

There will also be a few stories that she will share about her friends and her pet Mina. 


So this is all for today. Make sure to pop over to Willow's blog in the next couple of days as I will be updating it very soon. 

I also can't wait to share with you my progress on 'Le Chateau'. Very excited about that. 

Wishing you a very Happy Weekend. 

Take Care & See you soon.

Hugs,

Baby Arabella!

Hello Everyone,

How are you all? Hope you are all keeping safe and that you are well. September has never been my favorite month. The weather is changing and soon I will be saying goodbye to my Summer days and the kids will start their scholastic year as well. 

I have been quite busy with my new project and I can't wait to share with you my progress. 

Today I wanted to introduce you to a new arrival to My Miniature World; Baby Arabella. 

Baby Arabella was made by my friend and doll maker Beverely Senatore. The little tot came undressed so I made a pretty dress for her with lace and ribbon.


I can't wait to add her to one of my future projects. She is so cute and delicate. The rocking horse was also painted by me and has suited her quite well.


The photos have been taken in the main bedroom of Pembroke Grange. 




This is all for today. Make sure to keep tuned for the next update on 'Le Chateau'.

Take Care and See You Soon.

Hugs,

The Hallways in 'Le Château'

Hello Everyone,

Hope you enjoyed your weekend and that you are all well. It's been a while since my last post as I was quite busy working on my project 'Le Château' and making new miniatures.

I have to say that the hallways are now complete and I am very happy how they turned out.


I continued working on the entrance hall of 'Le Château' were I added a few pieces of my own. The first piece that I worked on was the hall table and oval mirror.  For my first trial they turned out amazing. 




The second piece that I added to the entrance was my very own designed and scratch-built settee.  I wanted to add a piece of furniture to fit under the staircase so the best solution was making my own. 


I also got to work on a few accessories for the hallways. For the hall table I made a Pendulum clock and a Bohemia crystal style vase with Daisy paper flowers.

Finally I added the wall paintings were I also printed a few frames and down sized a few printed antique Georgian paintings. 


Here are some photos of the Hallways . 













This is all for today. I hope you like what I have done so far. I can't wait to start working on the rooms. Make sure to keep tuned for the next updates on this project. 

Take Care and See You Soon.
