About Me

My photo
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

DORFPUPPENHAUS ... Update January 2017

OMG 😌😏😒😕

 it's been such a long time since I've been here last, but there are several reasons for that, but I'll explain those in a seperate post

Those of you who used to follow my blog (I hope you're all still out there somewhere and forgive me for not being here for such a long time) and/or know more about the german "Dorfpuppenhaus", already know that this house comes in parts, meaning I get 4 issues once a month and this explains why it takes sooooo damn long to finish that house :-)

I decided to make a garden to go with the house, and guess what : as soon as I had this garden finished, suddenly I became informed by the publisher that they also had decided to add a garden to the house. OK, for now, I will leave everything as it is and once I'll have all the parts of the garden that come with the magazine, I can always decide if I'd prefer to add that one or keep mine.

Wait and see !!!

Here are a few pics I took today, I think it is about time to show you this beautiful house
It has taken me long enough to finish it (just a few little details are still to be done, but other than that it is finished .... on the other hand, is a miniature project ever really finished) ??

This picture shows the house with both additions on the side, the conservatory on the right 
and my garden on the left
The BBQ station is part of what the magazine provided, the rest of the garden are my own creations and leftover items I had from other projects

The entrance door is on the right, unfortunately you don't see it here and the lights have not been fixes to the roof yet

The inside of the conservatory has become quite cosy, don't you think 
The champagne bottle is one I made myself, wasn't such an easy project. Many many bottles didn't have a very long life and ended up in the trash before I finally made some I was happy with.

The garden I added, there's a big party going on there, not all guests have arrived yet

I'd say that the interior is as good as finished, the only changes I do sometimes is moving things around, but other than that, it is a really nice and cozy home. The sofa wasn't included in the issues, it's a special item I had made by Jill Lucas, a wonderful miniature artist

Check out her FB page, it's worth it :

The kitchen had a little addition since the picture I last posted .... the cute little side table you see in the front with the deserts on it. In fact, when the front is on the house, this table sits right under a window with a good few to the street

The Living/Dining room is not a very large room, but nevertheless, it has everything one needs to be happy, even a fireplace with a rocking chair to chill and enjoy long winter evenings

The bedroom hasn't changed very much either, I finally got the wardrobe and I also added a chair

The bathroom with some of my DIY items, like the soap bottles f.ex. and the fern in the back

The small space in the attic is used to display the memories of when their son Henry was just a small child. You know how mothers are, they simply can't seperate themselves from all this

The shingles ..... oooohhhhh, this is something I really hate doing ..... there, I said it !!

Guess that's why the roof still isn't finished, but I'll get to it

the BBQ station, looks good so far, but I'm pretty sure I will make a few more changes here soon

So I hope you enjoyed this little tour of my almost finished farm house
Have fun and come back soon

See ya
