Shabby and Tea anyone?…

So last friday I started doing some shabby lamps. I decided that I could do the base of the lamps with teapots, and for my surprise the result turned quite charming and delicious.

I used french vintage labels to complete the top of the lamps. Well they don¬īt give light to your dollhouse but they sure give charm and elegance!Mmmmmm…chocolate, I could take a bite on this last one ūüėȬ†

The Three Bears Tale…

¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬†Once upon a time, ¬†three¬†¬†bears ‚Äď “a Little, Small, Wee Bear, a Middle-sized Bear, and a Great, Huge Bear” ‚Äď lived together in a house in the woods. They were very good-natured, trusting, harmless, and hospitable. Each bear had his own porridge¬†bowl, chair, and bed. One day they took a walk in the woods while their porridge cooled. An old and ugly woman was just passing by,¬†looks through the window and assured that no one is home, she walks in. The old woman eats the Wee Bear’s porridge, then settles into his chair and breaks it. Later she finds the bears’ beds and falls asleep in Wee Bear’s bed. Meanwhile the bears return and Wee Bear finds the old woman in his bed and cries, “Somebody has been lying in my bed, ‚Äď and here she is!” The old woman starts up, jumps from the window, and runs away never to be seen again…

Shabby Chic miniatures…

Whether you call it cottage, English country or just plain romantic, shabby chic accessories and distressed furniture create a comfortably elegant home, and naturaly in your dollhouse too.
A pink shelve with a book, a teapot, sugarpot and teacups hanged results on a lovely miniature with a shabby flavour. The bottom was covered with an elegant fabric with flowers matching.

Mmmm…what about adding a beautiful bench to this scenary?

Pitchers…

I bought a pitcher in the other day in an old shop, and decided to do some in miniature too..

They just become the cuttest miniature ever! You can use them to decorate every place in your dollhouse, in a room, kitchen, bathroom or garden. Also by adding some flowers their beauty is enhanced…¬†¬†¬†

The small table where they are exposed was also handmade and painted by me.  

Each cup of tea represents an imaginary voyage…

And this is the start  of the inspiration for my miniatures!And this is the start of the inspiration for my miniatures...

Rustic Country

Reading a good book by the fireplace, drinking a cup of hot tea,just letting the time pass by…

In a country provence inspiration, this large kitchen dresser was painted in a rustic green. The structure is entirely of wood and the bottom was covered with a  paper that creates a delicate contrast. This piece is suitable for a country chic kitchen, as well to a cottage.

All the pots were made by me, painted in lovely cream colour and a distressed finish. Enamel pots and pans give that charming look to any kitchen.

The kettle is made of clay, aged and varnished to a more real look.
