time for an update...

After about 2 months of not having time for miniatures it was finally January and "plenty" of time for miniatures! So it's time to work on my floral bouquet again. Okay don't tell me...I know it's not finished(yet) but it's nearly there. I just have to squeeze some more leaves in it and a few branches behind the lilies.

At a local dollhouse shop I found the perfect cabinet for my "to make shop". So when I got home I could finally start making it. Since I had a piece of the right wallpaper left I had it nearly(again) finished in two days. The front of the shop with the window still needs some attention but again nearly finished. Just some paint and ageing and it's perfect. Well next week I don't have to work so guess what I will be doing? Indeed finish some of the projects allready started! Issn't that just a good start for 2012? The reason to work on this little shop? That I finally was able to put my lovely collection of Veronique Lux toys in it. I still needs more toys.

And today I had my first workshop this year. We've got nine tiles to paint something on. Of course in "Delfts Blauw". We've looked through old examples and came up with this design. It took us all day to draw and paint it in different shades of blue. This project was really tiny, it's just a bit wider and higher than 1 inch...but we've made it! But we couldn't take it home yet since it needs one more time to go into the oven. I really like the shape of the basket.

  1. wat prachtig allemaal, een hele goede start van 2012 lol

  2. Your flowers are just BEAUTIFUL!!! That is one of the best arrangements I have ever seen. Also those tiles! What a great job you have done painting them.

  3. The flowers look great and so does the toyshop! I like the floor. You did an awesome job on the tiles too. Keep up the good work.

  4. The flowers are wonderful!!! And the tiles WOW, they are fantastic!!!!!

  5. La composizione floreale è meravigliosa, molto sobria ed elegante,stupendo anche il lavoro fatto sulle piastrelle, non è affatto facile dipingere su oggetti così piccoli!

  6. The bouquet will be perfect, so elegant. I love what you already have for the toys shop, I like the cabinet and the colours.

  7. Wow, je bloemen zijn écht mooi! Ik houd ook van witte bloemen, en deze compositie laat alle verschillende soorten zo mooi uitkomen. De vaas past er ook prachtig bij. Het maakt het tot een regelrechte klassieker. Je tegel tableau is al net zo'n klassieker; wat een geweldig resultaat!! Geniet van de tijd die je de komende week hebt en succes met het afronden van je "projecten"

  8. Nah, wat een mooie dingen allemaal! En die tegeltjes, wat een leuk patroon! ;-))))))))))

  9. Mooie bloemen en speelgoedkastje is enig!!
    Ik las nu net dat je naar quild school IGMA gaat. Gefeliciteerd!!!!
    Groetjes Lisette

    @Catherine: Thank you, the flowers will get a prominent place when finished. Making the tiles was so much fun.

    @Troy: Thanks...the floor of the toyshop was something that I just wanted to try and I really liked how it turned out hopefully you can still see it when the store is completely stocked.

    @Elga: Thank you...I do like flowers even in the tiles you find them.

    @MelyMel: Indeed painting on tiles about 1cm wide was a challenge!

    @Miniacollection: I'm a big fan of Veronique's toys...and wanted to display them a bit in her style.

    @Debora: Dankjewel ja ook ik ben gek op witte bloemen het geheel komt straks in een nis te staan.

    @Josje: Ja verrassend hé ;-P Maar het werd ook wel weer eens tijd hier wat te laten zien.

  11. @Lisette: fijn dat je de bloemen mooi vindt. Met het kastje was ik erg blij toen ik het vond, perfect voor het speelgoed. Ja dankjewel.....ik ben heel benieuwd wat me allemaal te wachten staat maar hou jullie op de hoogte hier hoor!
    Nog even over blogger ik had hetzelfde probleem de hele dag vandaag. Nu lijkt het hier weer te werken.
