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

The Lavender Shop : this and that

Hello again

I just took this picture for fun, because when I saw everything standing there, I realized that I've already made quite a few items for my shop, which doesn't even exist yet, lol

Just felt like sharing
Enjoy


I made a few more candlesticks, bigger (higher) one's this time, as well as perfume bottles, vintage and other.

There are already 3 tiny displays (for the soaps, the perfumes and the ambiance fragrances)

In the front you can see a few plates I made with polymer clay and which I painted either lavender and/or gold for the occasion. The one one the right is filled with tiny lavender cakes  called "meringues" (these do really exist, taste a bit strange in the beginning but you get used to it after eating a few).

The gold plate on the left is filled with tiny little pieces of lavender "nougat" (don't know if there is another expression for that in english)

Both these plates will be on the counter at the entrance of the shop for my customers to try them before buying, lol

On the right in the back, you can see some sort of box/display for wrapping paper, all with the lavender theme and/or color of course, for the occasion

😊😊😊

Since I named this post "THIS AND THAT", the following pictures show many more items 
I made for my Lavender Shop


A basket filled with little bags of fresh lavender to put in your lingerie drawers 😉😉



A cute little vintage box with a perfume bottle inside
(Lid and Perfume bottle are removable of course)


Gift wrap paper in a box and another jug



YES YES, my gift bloxes are actually filled
😃😃


Meringues (is there a special word for those in english ???) 😎
which I filled into little cellophane bags
I designed 2 different labels for these, still don't know which one to chose


A basket with all sorts of testers (called "échantillons" in french)


I first made the basket (with a simple weaving technique and waxed thread) and
then I filled it with dried lavender. To make a bouquet, I filled tiny little bags made with satin paper


More jugs

Stay tuned for more

See ya soon
