- I've been into dollhouse miniatures since the early 1990's now and when I realized how much I've learned during that time, I thought I'd make a blog to share my knowledge with others. I'm mostly auto-deduct, but always found help on the Internet and in specific books. The mini-world starts and ends with your own imagination, so let there be no limit. And never say : I CAN'T .... because you can, you just need to try and have the necessary know-how. And that's the main reason why I started this blog, because I wanna share what I know with newbies in the miniature world or anybody else who might be interested in sharing what I've learned so far. So, hopefully, I'll be able to provide some useful hints, tips and tricks for those of you out there just starting with this wonderful hobby

Hello my mini friends
Good to see you again.
As you know, a miniature project is never really finished, isn't it. And just like everybody else, I just love to add all sorts of details to my mini scenes, because I think this is what makes them come to life. Sometimes, these details are hidden to the eyes of those who look at my creations, but I know they are there and that's what counts. That's probably the reason why I sometimes live in my dollhouses .... in my dreams
I hope you don't think I'm completey nuts now, don't you
So here are just a few examples of what I mean by adding details and finishing touches
Since this cottage has only very little space, I needed to find solutions on where to stock things, like magazines f.ex. ..... and this little chest came in handy
Almost everything you see in this pic are DIY items and these little details are the most important finishing touch you can give to your miniature creations
A jug, a few candles, a little pot
A table cloth with matching napkins (DIY of course), neatly arranged on top of the chest that contains the magazines.
Another chest used as a bar
The wall shelf and the top of the dresser are full of DIY items, except for the old telephone
My 1st try at making a sofa myself
Changed the pillows though .... made these too
Adding some shabby chic details with lots of roses
Made a little shopping basket with some new table cloths
Gave this old garden bench a new look by painting it red, adding some dots and new
cushions .... and I made a magazine to be read once the bench has found it's place in the garden
I made this little table and the plant, as well as the decorative item in the front
Made the little tray too
And a real personal touch is to add a real picture .... this one shows Evelyne, my friend who's gonna get this garden cottage for her birthday, my hubby and myself during a vacation
There is more to come, so stay tuned
See ya sooooooon I hope
