Glass paint

I bought these beads at the KDF ( wish I got more....) The gold ones had holes that I added glass paint with a toothpick. Once dried I added the gold top.

KDF miniatures

Here are few of the minis I purchased, I just love the elephant's hair-do

and of course pots for my plants :)
I will post more of what I got for the dining room soon.

Kensington Dollhouse Festival Dec 2010

Just returned from London, absolutely thrilled! I attended my first dollhouse show and I am filled with awe, inspiration and delight.  After 10 years of seeing miniatures on the screen I was able to see people's wonderful work in person. I am absolutely going to try to go again. The weather was perfect, no snow, I was a bit worried as the BBC news in Greece painted such a bad picture.

I got to meet Georgina Steeds, a wonderfully warm and friendly lady and saw her plants face to face positively gorgeous. She has a new blog you can now get her news on fairs, workshops and kits.

Anthoula was also there, both of us smiling from ear to ear, she is returning on Monday and cant wait to meet her for coffee and share our experience.

Today the kids will be at school and I will take pictures of the miniatures I was able to purchase. As I am sure everyone has had this: there were a lot more that I wanted to purchase, far too many temptetions ,lol! I was glad I had a list with various options and kept to it.

Thank you KDF organisers it was a wonderful experience!

After 2 years and a move I finally finished the exterior of the Manor. Still window boxes to be made and to be placed on the basement. First , I have to finish the wall papering and lighting. Keeping fingers crossed it can be lifted with care.

Orange poppies in vases and a painting

I was inspired by a house decorating magazine to add orange poppie to this room. I found Berties wonderful vases at ebay, (also sells at etsy) I thought these are perfect for this room. So here are the results.

This is the whole room so far, still many things to add some to change. Books to make, a carpet, a bowl for the coffee table, more pictures and decor for the walls.......
The lillies on the left are from Barb Plevan.

This gorgeous picture is from  Amber I liked this art from my teenage years in Dublin, so when I saw it I had to have it. I must say it has surpassed my expectations, its very beautifully made , the frame is very carefully made with details, thank you Amber.

Yummy cakes

These are my wonderful collection from Anthoula these have inspired me to do a sweet shop, Arent they delicious?
The platforms are from silver fimo I made them to look like the ones we get in the cake shops in Greece.
The breads and hot cross buns were a workshop Anthoula kindly gave me, we went to a GBK and after eating our yummy dessert we made these. Thank you Anthoula!

Pithoi, a little bit of mediterranean gardening.

Just finished this Bougainvillea kit from Georgina Steed (her blog here), and placed it in the Grecian pot mentioned in an earlier post. This took a while to finish as I only did a small branch at a time. Thank you Georgie for making this beautiful kit.
