Coffee Pot Mouse House

 Always wanted to do a mouse house, so why not a mouse house in a coffee pot? This is Mrs. Mouse house, I still don´t have a name for the owner of this little house, suggestions of my dear blog friends are accepted!The coffee pot is smaller than a regular book. It measures 16 cm* 12 cm. Upstairs we have the master bedroom and the bathroom. It was supposed to be just a bedroom, but there were space left, so I decided to add a screen to divide the two rooms. The screen matches the bed for a sutil change. On the walls I added old music sheets. I tried other kinds of papers for the bottom but they were very dark for such a small space. A small teddy bear is lying on the bed, Mrs Mouse likes miniature dolls too 😉    Mmmmm…seems like something is being baked downstairs…let´s take a look!   This was my first attempt of making clay cakes , Mrs. Mouse looks very happy with the results 🙂For the cold winter nights a fireplace is essencial…I can see Mrs.Mouse drinking a cup of tea in the sofa, with a nice crackling fireplace, listening to the wind and the rain outside.   On the top I opened a window for lightning the little house. I love roses, they give a lovely look from the outside. 

Everything was handmade by me in clay and wood, hope you enjoy the results as much as I do, mini hugs! 

The Pleasures of a Garden…

Always been doing indoor miniatures, so for a change, I decided to do some dollhouse garden miniatures . Searching for blogs and images there are so many inspirational places, furniture and animals! Oh I wish I could have a beautiful garden, resting on the sun while reading a book and drinking a cup of tea…Miniature dollhouse potting bench A miniature water can  Well looks like those boots been working in the garden all day! We have a special guest in the garden today… a miniature squirrel 🙂

  All the items exposed are tottaly handmade by me,painted and aged. Hope you like the result !

In the Kitchen…

Today I am in the mood for a more distressed finish in my miniatures..furniture that tells story’s by the fireplace, that speaks of family living and sharing of good moments in a cosy atmosphere. The ceramics are made of clay and varnished, the basket is made of paper and wood. Love love this basket! The three pots have some cork on the top and the coffee pot is embellished with two roses.  

Writing…

It is necessary to write, if the days are not to slip emptily by.  How else, indeed, to clap the net over the butterfly of the moment?  For the moment passes, it is forgotten; the mood is gone; life itself is gone.  That is where the writer scores over his fellows:  he catches the changes of his mind on the hop.  ~Vita SackvilleWestThis is my handmade writer´s desk. The furniture was made from a real model desk. I decided to paint in an old pink and add in the bottom some vintage paper. The basket was also made by me, with paper and adding some lace to a more romantic look. Hope you like it.
