'The Miniaturist Room' Part 2 on Life & Style

Hello everyone,

Hope you are well and looking forward to the weekend. 

Just before leaving for The Netherlands, I shared the continuation of my new project 'The Miniaturist' on the Life & Style TV show on Net TV. 



After wallpapering the walls I got to add the extra wall behind the stove and tiles for the flooring. It still needs to be weathered and dirtied. Using a drinking straw I also added a chimney to give more detail. 




I also added the detail to the room with the skirting, cornice and even a wall trimming.


Having the room ready with the ceiling and lighting in place it was time to add a few furniture pieces and accessories. I added a table  and one of my micro dolls houses that I have made a few years ago. Finally Rosebud Cottage is part of a project. Being the Miniaturist Room we will be having quite a few dolls houses.





I have also decorated and hand painted another dolls house for the room. I am sure we will find the right spot for it. I have down sized some wall paper and flooring to fit the tiny dolls house and it looks quite different.





Here are a few photos while sharing the progress of the project during the 'Life & Style' show with Marbeck Spiteri. 









Here are a few photos of how it looks like so far.





Hope you like the new additions so far. I am so looking forward to work more on this project. 

I will be sharing more progress of 'The Miniaturist' next Tuesday during Life & Style TV Show, keep tuned for the next update.

Take Care and See You Soon.

Hugs,

Visiting The Dollshouse Netherland Show March 2019

Hello Everyone,

Here I am again! 

Like a few of you already know, last weekend I was in The Netherlands to visit the Dollshouse Netherland Show that took place at Eusebiuskerk in Arnhem.


On my arrival on Saturday, I had the pleasure to visit the City of Delft which is famous for the manufacturing of the hand painted white and blue pottery and the resting place of the Dutch Master Painter Johannes Vermeer. 




A wonderful place to visit and I also got some Delft miniatures from there too.



Sunday was the big day were I got to go to Arnhem for the Dollshouse Netherland Show. I was so excited to be there. It was great to meet wonderful artists and seeing their amazing work. Eusebiuskerk is beautiful on its own. The building and art work is just magnificent to see. 











I didn't realize that being in Arnhem I was only a few meters away from the famous John Frost bridge which is much known for the War Novel 'A Bridge too Far' by Cornelius Ryan based on a true story that happened in WWII during Operation Market Garden; a failed Allied attempt to break through the German lines.

Also how can I ever forget to mention the little tot that travels with me wherever I go. Posy was with me all the time even at the dolls house show. She might be telling her own stories in her own blog. 



Here are the goodies that I got from the Dollshouse Netherland Show.

Surprise! I found the original Charles Dickens Doll made by the Dolls House Emporium which has been discontinued for years. Who would have told me that I would find him there. Got the doll from 'Minidoor-Workshops & Poppenhuisminiaturen'




I got the sweet baby doll all dressed up, pair of boots and a tiny lady's bag from the sweet lady Marijke Van Vuuren who knits the tiniest of miniature accessories. 


A few kits from Janny's Artofmini. It was great meeting her.



And a few more kits from Melissa's Laserville. It was nice meeting you once again Melissa. 


Finally the tiny little sculptured doll which has poseable legs and arms from the Spanish artist Victoria Heredia Guerbo.


It was one of the most wonderful weekends that I ever experienced in my life. I will never forget it. It was a dream come true. Maybe one day, in a few years, I will get to visit again, but for now,  back to reality. I will share my dollshouse projects and miniature works from here. 

Take Care and See You Soon.

Life In Miniature on the Places Magazine

Hello everyone,

Here I am once again! Back on the rock! Just arrived a few days ago from the Dollshouse Netherland Show in Arnhem. It was amazing!.....but that will be shared on another post!

For now I just wanted to share with you an article that was published on the 'Places' Magazine which is distributed with The Sunday Times, the leading newspaper in Malta. 


A few weeks before it was published I was interviewed by Iggy Fenech about my miniature work and what drives me to this passion. 





He did an amazing article about My Miniature World and I am really thrilled with it. I was so surprised to find a four page article with lots of pictures.



For those who would like to read the article,  you can click on the link; Life in Miniature by Iggy Fenech

Here are the pictures of the article. A big thank you goes to Iggy Fenech for giving me the opportunity to feature my work on the magazine and to the photographer Mark Zammit Cordina  for such wonderful photos. 










So this is all for now. Hope you'll enjoy the article. Keep tuned for more news and updates.

Take Care and See You Soon.
