Miniature Rustic Boards

There are so many good food photography blogs that it´s hard not to be inspired by them..so I had this idea of making a rustic miniature set. These took me some time and patience but I am quite happy with the realistic results and vintage athmosphere. These are already sold, I will make some more boards soon and post it in my Etsy store.

Miniature Vintage Provence Stove

It´s time to bake in french style! 
Handmade stove, made in real wood, painted in a soft blue and egg colour, aged and with a touch of toile jouy paper to complete this special look. The smell of fresh baked croissants is all over the kitchen, and it could´t miss a french baguette and coffee in the coffeepot for the french breakfast. I am making one in pink,will post it soon ;)

The Dwarve`s Miniature Dinner at the Hobbit Hole

Chip the glasses and crack the plates!
Blunt the knives and bend the forks!
That’s what Bilbo Baggins hates–
Smash the bottles and burn the corks!

Cut the cloth and tread on the fat!
Pour the milk on the pantry floor!
Leave the bones on the bedroom mat!
Splash the wine on every door!

Dump the crocks in a boiling bowl;
Pound them up with a thumping pole;
And when you’ve finished, if any are whole,
Send them down the hall to roll!

That’s what Bilbo Baggins hates!
So, carefully! carefully with the plates

The miniature rustic table is hadmade, decorated with wild mushrooms, filled with everything that the hobbits like to eat: fruits, fresh bread, pork pie, wine, cheese, cold meats… And they sure like to eat!
The map adds that extra sweetness and reality to the scene. And to match the table we need an unique bench. So I made the bench thinking of Smaug the Dragon. This complets the all atmosphere.
All the furniture is an original design and made in real wood, painted, varnished and distressed for a magical look. 
This is an unique handmade miniature made specially for hobbit lovers …Thank you for watching!
