Started working on Felicia's Bedroom at Le Château

 Hello Everyone,

How are you all? Hope you are fine and doing well. Today I am excited to share with you more progress on my ongoing project Le Château. I started working on Felicia's Bedroom during the weekend. Felicia is the young miss that will live at Le Château.

I started off working with the back wall where I added an alcove for the bed to fit in eventually. 


 I added a fireplace on the left hand side of the room which I made myself. 


I printed one of my own ceiling roses and hand painted it to match the room.


Finally I added the wall panels that were made to measure to fit the walls. This is how Felicia's room looks like so far. 






I have started adding a few pieces of my own furniture and I can't wait to finish the bed.


This is how the house looks like so far.


I hope you like how my project is turning out. Make sure to keep tuned for the next update on Le Château. 

Take Care and See You Soon.

Hugs,

Introducing Mini Becks!

 Good morning everyone,

Here I am once again! Hope you are all well. Today I wanted to share with you the latest news at My Miniature World.

A few days ago a new doll arrived. She's no ordinary doll. My dear friend and doll maker Beverley Senatore surprised me with a Mini Me doll!!! 


I introduce you Mini Becks! I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw her. Beverley has made such a good job of her and the resemblance is there.  I would have never imagined that there would be a Mini Me doll! Thank you so much Beverley. 



Mini Becks is a 1:12 scale doll and is also wearing one of my outfits that I had worn during a 'Life & Style' TV Interview with Charles Saliba and Marbec Spiteri.


For the time being Mini Becks will be staying in the DHE Museum but I am pretty sure that we will be hearing more about her. She is quite outspoken and mischievous. 




The lady is quite bossy and she forced me to dress up to take photos with her. She insisted that I should wear the same outfit like her. 


So this is all for today! I am looking forward to see Miss Becks appear in the blog too. 

Tomorrow it's Easter so from here I want to wish you a very Happy Easter with my favorite Girls Posy and Willow. 


Make sure to keep tuned for the next updates at My Miniature World.

Take Care and See You Soon.

Hugs,

Interview on 'Ilsien in-Nisa' TV Show

Hello Everyone,

How are you? Hope you are all well. Even though the weather has been a bit cold here you can still feel that Spring is in the air. 

After the 'Lovin' Malta Article' I was invited for an interview on the Maltese TV Show 'Ilsien in-Niesa' on One TV.


I got to share with the telespectators how my love for dolls houses started and how from a hobby it turned into a passion and a lifestyle.


I got to explain what it takes to build a dolls house and it's process. It's been over  25 years since the day I started building my very first dolls houses and now I have over 30 dolls house projects in my collection.


On my You Tube Channel I have added the  interview which you can watch below.


During the show several pictures were featured, and here are a few .










I have had quite a few requests to upload video of my dolls house collection on You Tube. I will be considering it and will try it out and see how it goes. 

So this is all for today,  Make sure to keep tuned for the next update on my projects and latest news,

Take Care and See You Soon.

Hugs,

The Main Bedroom in Le Château!

 Hello everyone,

Here I am again! Hope you are all well. I have been quite busy working on my miniatures and on my project lately. Le Château is taking quite long to complete, but the time and work behind it, is definitely worth the wait!


I have worked on all the furniture pieces for the main bedroom. There was so much to do, I first started working on the bed which I consider it to be the X factor, It took me some time to do and measure especially the canopy which I designed and made.




 Every piece of furniture was painted and decorated to fit the style with marble effect tops.

The Wardrobe.


The Dressing Table.


I added  one of my own clocks on the chest of drawers. 


The wall panels have been decorated with rococo style frames that I made and added portraits to fit. 


The room still needs to be decorated with accessories and additions but this is how it looks like so far.  






I hope you like what I have done. I can't wait to add more to the room and continue working on this project. 

So this is all for today, make sure to keep tuned for the next update.

Take Care and See You Soon,

Hugs,

Vintage Pieces added to The Tudor Manor

 Hello Everyone,

How are you all? Hope you are all well. I am so excited to share with you a few vintage pieces that I found recently for my 1930's style Tudor Manor. 

The Tudor Manor is very close to my heart and I do enjoy adding vintage pieces when I find them. I found this 1930's Radio Transmitter complete with the head set and all. 

I was so lucky to find it and fitted nicely in the scene. To add to the little piece I found this German 1950's radio cabinet. I was thrilled to add it to the room. 



The radio cabinet once opened has the radio itself and a space where to put away the vinyl records.

 

I have added the gramphone's records with their covers to the cabinet and I will be making a few more. 


I am so happy with the new pieces added to the sitting room. 

I hope you liked the new additions. I can't wait to share with you the next updates of my project.

Take Care and See You Soon.


Hugs,

Article on Lovin' Malta News

 Hello Everyone,

Hope you are all feeling well. At the moment I am working on the main bedroom of 'Le Château' and I am really excited to share it with you when it is done. 

Last Sunday, I got quite a surprise when I woke up to an article on Lovin' Malta New shared on their website and social media. I didn't even know about it until someone pointed it out to me. 


The  article written by Sam Vassallo can be found on Lovin' Malta website in the New section This Maltese clerk makes gorgeously intricate and historically accurate miniature worlds .If the link is broken you can find the article here!

After 25 years of dolls housing I can see a huge difference in my work and definitely in myself too ;-).

Some photos that have been used for the article.

Take Care and See You Soon.
