New Year's Eve Ball at Pembroke Grange

Hello Everyone,

Here we are again, at the very end of the year 2019. Another year has gone by. So much has happened. There were unforgettable moments, amazing projects, great experiences and even a few less than the average. On the whole I am grateful for everything, everyday is a blessing on its own and I'm looking forward for more. Looking forward to create more new projects and new miniature makings, looking forward to see what the new year has in store for me; good or not I will take them one at a time, at my stride and push myself till I get there. 

Today just before closing My Miniature World, I could see that Regent Street was getting busy preparing for their New Year Celebrations. J.R. closed early. I can see that Mr. Rookie and a few others are already at the Master Swords Man Pub & Inn. Mrs. Ella and Miss Leah  only opened in the morning. Manuel is still at the coffee shop with his last clients for the night. "Come on Manuel close the shop and join the others." I winked at him from the shop window and wished the lot a Happy New Year.

Hold on! but I hear more cheering and music coming from the other side of the room. What's going on here? Pembroke Grange? I crossed the room and peeped from the windows and there in the dining room there was quite a crowd. I opened up the front to find a New Year's Eve Ball going on. 

The Dining room in Pembroke Grange looked more like a Ball room. I was speechless with the lovely ladies and gents all dressed up for the evening.  

There standing proudly Mr. Darcy and Miss Elisabeth Bennet welcoming their guests. 

On the other side of the room next to the pianoforte there was Jane standing shyly with a smile.

A few guests that I didn't recognize in any of my projects but sure to appear in the year 2020. 

"Mr. Dickens?!! What are you doing here? You are supposed to be in Regent Street." 

He told me that he was invited by Miss Leah as he was a big fan of Jane Austen's Books. Apparently the brunette diverted his attention. I looked puzzled. These dolls just don't behave when I am not around. 

I looked for the sweet face that I love. Miss Leah;  My very first doll in Regent Street. The story teller, my inspiration, the one that opened the doors to different worlds. She looked beautiful as ever dancing with her fiancee Sir Edward Barrett. She caught me looking at her and came to talk to me.

"Miss Leah, what's going on here? You and Sir Edward shouldn't be here! Pembroke Grange is way before your time." 

She only giggled and told me that she wanted to have a Ball and that Edward couldn't refuse her plea. I rolled my eyes at the two love birds and smiled. I would have done the same, if I had the chance. 

I wished everyone a good night and a Happy New Year to them too and closed the front of Pembroke Grange to let them enjoy their Ball. 

Last photo of the year 2019 at My Miniature World was with Pembroke Grange during the on going New Year's Eve Ball. 

From here I would like to 
Wish You and Your Loved Ones a 
Very Happy and Prosperous New Year 2020

Will be coming back to you with a run through of 2019 and the plans for 2020. Make sure to keep tuned.

Take Care and See You Soon.

The Christmas Lantern on 'Life & Style' Tv Show

Hello Everyone,

Merry Christmas to you all! Hope you are enjoying your Christmas with your loved ones. The kids went to bed early waiting for Santa to arrive and here I am popping in very quickly to share with you my Christmas project for this year. 

This year I have decorated a lantern with a miniature Christmas Scene and I have shared this project on the 'Life & Style' TV Show on NET TV.

It is quite a spacious metal lantern and the first thing that I thought of was of a Christmas tree. I found one of these miniature pine tree and added a few decorations that I did myself. 

I printed a few miniature Victorian Christmas pictures and turned them in to Christmas tree decorations. Found a few jewelry beads that I used them to make Christmas baubles. 

I made an angel Christmas tree topper for the tree with some lace too. 

For the snow, I got a ball of white woolen yarn which I cut very finely to make it look like real snow. 

I had this doll, cat and a small sleigh that I never used. The cat reminds me a bit of my own Binksy and believe it or not the little doll looks so much like my little Leah.

Yesterday I got to take the project and shared it on the Tv Show. It turned out exactly how I wanted.

The Tree looks so nice and full with its decorations. 

Here is the two video clips during the show. 

From here I want to wish a very Merry Christmas to the Producer Joanne Tanti, the presenters of the show Charles Saliba and Marbeck Spiteri and the whole crew at NET TV. Thank you everyone not for only making me feel part of the team but also part of your family. 

Here are some photos of the Christmas lantern. 

Also today I will be announcing the winner of Jane Austen's framed portrait give Away. The winner of the draw is Lucy Forest. Congratulations Lucy. Kindly contact me through a private message with your details so I can send it off to you. We will be having more give aways soon, so don't give up.

From here Posy and I would like to wish a very Merry Christmas to you and your loved ones.

When you have time visit Posy The Tiny Bear Blog. I am hoping that we will be having more regular updates for the new year.

So this is all for today. Make sure to keep tuned for the next updates.

Take Care and See You Soon.

The Physician - Part 2 on 'Life & Style' TV Show

Hello everyone,

Hope you are all well and had a great weekend. With too much going-ons at the moment, I just didn't have time to post the second part of the new project 'The Physician' which was shared on the TV show 'Life & Style' on NET TV a fortnight ago. 

As a few already know 'The Physician' is basically the room where the doctor gets to see his patients and will be fitted right on top of the 'Cures & Remedies' Apothecary. 

The single room box is quite spacious which has a false back door to give more depth to the whole project itself.

I have also printed another ceiling rose with my 3D printer and painted it to match with the wall paper.

Once the room was ready I started my research of how a doctor's clinic would look like especially in the Victorian Period. I have to say I found more than enough to execute this project. I knew that a few pieces had to be done hand made like the examination couch which I am so pleased how it turned out. I still can't believe that I actually made it myself.

With one of the main pieces done, I knew that with an examination couch there was this small table where the doctor kept his tools on. I have made two periodic stethoscopes to add to my set of tools. 

Another miniature that I enjoyed making is the case of medicine bottles.

With a few more furniture pieces I was all set for the show. 

Here is the video clips for those who would like to see the show.

The famous photo of after the show never fails.

Charles Saliba and I

Hope you like what I have done so far. There is still so much that I still need to do and add and I am really excited to see it all done. 

Tomorrow at 12:10 pm I will be back on the 'Life & Style' Tv Show on the Maltese Tv Channel NET TV with a small Christmas project. So make sure to keep tuned. 

Take Care and See You Soon.

Jane's Birthday and introducing the New Residents

Hello Everyone, 

Today a very quick post as we are celebrating a very special day. Today we are celebrating Jane Austen's 244th Birthday. On 16th December 1775 Jane Austen was born in Hampshire, England. 

As most of you know Jane Austen is my favorite British Novelties and my Pembroke Grange is inspired by one of her books 'Pride & Prejudice'. Actually the outside reminds me a lot of the Bennet's House 'Longbourn' from the BBC 1995 TV series Pride & Prejudice.

This is the first year that my Jane Austen doll will be celebrating her birthday at Pembroke Grange together with the new residents of the house. 

The New residents of Pembroke Grange are actually two of Jane's Characters in Pride & Prejudice; Miss Elisabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy. The dolls are made by the amazing doll maker Beverley Senatore. Actually Mr. Darcy is indeed a look-a-like of the actor Colin Firth who played the role of Mr. Darcy in the 1995 TV series. I have to say he is the best actor for the role.

To celebrate Jane Austen's Birthday I will be giving out a free give-away. A miniature framed oval printed canvas of Jane Austen.

To get a change to win this frame and portrait all you have to do is:

1) Be or Become a follower of My Miniature World Blog.
2) Leave a comment here on the blog post so I'll know who want to take part.

Closing date is 23rd December 2019 and the winner will be announced shortly afterwards.

Happy Birthday Jane Austen and thank you for your wonderful legacy that you left for everyone to enjoy through your novels.

So this is all for today. Keep tuned for the next updates.

Take Care & See You Soon.

The Complete Dining Room in Pembroke Grange

Hello everyone,

Hope you all had a great weekend. Christmas is getting closer, and even though I'm busier than ever, this weekend I got to work on my Pembroke Grange. 

Finally I am proud to say I have one of the rooms complete which happens to be my favorite; the Dining room.

The Dining Room
 After decorating the conservatory, I was so eager to get my hands on the next room. This room has the least pieces of furniture due  to the door ways and the murals on the walls. Apart from the fire place, I only added a side table and the dining room table with six chairs.

I have re-upholstered the chairs and have printed my own fabric.

It had been a while since I worked with polymer-clay, and it was fun to do a typical Georgian Dinner for the room. I got myself busy and did a dinner that you would expect from a typical ordinary family in the period.

On the side table I also made a few apples and oranges.

I am also pleased that I have managed to print my very first carpet using velvet textured paper. The carpet has a typical regency design and has fitted the room perfectly.

At the end I also added a few of my own hand painted white metal miniatures. The angel on the pedestal and the mantel clock on the fire place were painted by me while the pair of figurines were painted by my talented father.

Here are some photos of the complete room.

I hope you like how I have furnished and decorated the dining room. So far I have no intention of adding more to it but you never know.

This is all for today. Make sure to keep tuned for the next updates on my ongoing projects. 

Take Care and See You Soon.
