A New Painting for J.R. Art Gallery

 Hello Everyone,

Here we are once again. Hope you are all keeping safe. It has been a very busy week and I can't believe how fast the days seem to go by. October passed so quickly and soon we will be preparing for Christmas. 

I am very proud to share with you the latest new painting that has been added to J.R. Art Gallery in Regent Street. Mr. Rookie is very happy with it.  

The new painting is called 'The Swan' painted by my dearest friend and fellow miniaturist José Pereira Torrejón. 

'The Swan' painting found it's place among José's other paintings; 'The Humming Bird', 'The Secret Garden' and 'The Cupola' .

The painting is so beautiful. I love the blending of it's colors considering that it is a miniature. It looks so rich in the gallery. 

'The Swan' painting has a story behind it. It is the ninth of a series of paintings that José painted for his own Conservatory Project. The paintings are so detailed and beautiful that give the Conservatory a very unique and special touch. You can visit The Rust & Steel Miniatures Blog to see The Paintings of The Conservatory. You will be impressed with José's work. 

I would like to thank José for such an amazing painting. It is an honor to have his work in J.R. Art Gallery.

So this is all for today. Keep tuned for the next update on 'Le Château'.

Take Care and See You Soon.

A Visit to Madurodam

 Hello everyone,

Hope you are all enjoying your weekend. The weather here is still quite nice and warm but it does cool down in the evening. Have been quite busy working on new miniatures and on my ongoing project. Last weekend I got to go to The Netherlands once again. Apart from getting some nice dolls house miniature goodies from 'The Cabinet' dolls house Shop in Gouda, I also got to visit some of my favorite places. As the weather was permitting, for a change, Posy and I finally, managed to visit the magical miniature world of Madurodam. 

Madurodam is a miniature park and tourist attraction in The Hague. It is home to a range of 1:25 scale model replicas of famous Dutch landmarks, historical cities and large developments. The park itself was opened in 1952. 

I was so happy and to be there. I totally felt like a little girl among these miniature wonders. The replicas are so amazingly detailed and inspiring. 

In the park you will find a working railway with passing trains. Working bridges with moving cars and boats. Beautiful windmills that leave you breathless. The Schiphol Airport located in Amsterdam which is the airport that I get to use myself.

I have taken so many pictures while being there, that it is impossible to share them all here on this post but here are some of my favorite. 

I was mesmerized with the street of shops. Even the shops inside are decorated like a dolls house.

One of the exhibits was so cute! It was like a factory that makes the traditional Dutch clogs. Once you put a One Euro coin in the money box slot you hear the factory working and you get a pair of miniature clogs delivered to you there and then in a miniature truck.

Here is my pair of Delft Blue miniature Dutch clogs with the wording of Madurodam Holland. Such a cute souvenir to keep of such an unforgettable visit.  

I am sure that a some of you have visited this enchanting place and had a wonderful time just like myself. It will always be a memorable and unforgettable experience.

Make sure to keep tuned for the next updates on my ongoing project and exciting news from time to time.

Take Care and See You Soon,

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.

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,
