Diamonds are girl's best friends ;-)

I do agree with Marilyn and I love emeralds and rubies too ! But ... But, I must admit that tools are my favorite friends ... And I have been spoiled this Christmas. Just take a look at what was waiting for me under the tree :


See you very soon dear friends !

A link to share

Some of you might already know the work of Francisco del Pozo Parés. As for me, I discovered his talent when visiting the Kensington Dollhouse Festival in London last Spring.
I received this morning Francisco's newsletter and I wanted to give him the largest echo I can.
So, follow the link !

Inch by inch ...

 step by step ...

While I am here, does anyone could recommend me a miniature shop in Berlin (I will be visiting Germany's capital next week for two days) ?
Thanks for your help !

Seven(th) ;-)

For sure, hell lays in details ...
The following windows are "just" my seventh attempt :

And I am afraid I still have not finished because I just throwed away the window handles I made ...
To be continued, so ...

Quickly ...

And because it is far from being finished, a few pictures of the antechamber above the hallway :

See you very soon !

... I have been working like a dog

Well, not exactly ! But I think I am on the good way.

Can you see my little mascot sitting on the stair ? It is made by Catherine. She offered me this sweet rabbit for my birthday last March. (Sounds like Alice's Adventures in Wonderland).
And I am really happy with Minst's ceiling lamp. I think it is perfect for the entrance.
See you soon friends !

Lilla Hyttnäs

Remember this ?
OK, so just forget it !!! I changed all my plans and throwed the first try. I decided to construct in hard the house. And here is a sneak peak of the hallway and the first floor.

Gifted ;-)

I want to share with you the latest gifts I was lucky enough to receive.
The very first one comes from a fine and delicate miniaturist : Flora
This highly detailed suitcase is a tribute to the sinking of the Titanic. It belonged to one of the passengers who came to Cherbourg.
The second one is almost a commission I asked Catherine
This lovely painting is something I really wanted ! Actually, the original one (scale 1/1) belongs to my mother and is painted on an ordinary round tin tray. I sent a few pictures to Catherine this summer, then I made the frame.
And, at last, here is what I am working on these days :
I wish you a nice week-end !

Do please follow the link below, you won't be desapointed. She is a really great artist.

And here is (the beginning of) my gardener's corner :

But, the challenge is that it is supposed to be completed by the 2nd of October ...
And all your comforting comments are welcome !!!

Un petit dernier ...

prior leaving for a few weeks :

I would like to find a "miroir de sorcière" to fit the hole but I am not sure I can find one in 1/12 scale.

A tribute to ...

... Monet's dining room at Giverny.
But I worked too quickly and,  yes ! too dirty I am afraid ;-)
Here is the result :

And now the same a bit messy
 I think I will put it in the kitchen and maybe I will add curtains at the bottom.
Have fun !

Summertime ...

Pascale spoiled me ! Look at those marvelous poppies she made for me !

I am such a lucky girl.
My friend Catherine offered me the two cute teapots made by Dominique Lévy and the tureens are from Elisabeth Causeret.
I won't be home for a while so don't be surprised if I don't post anything prior 3 to 5 weeks. I have tons of projects but my hands are really bad those times ! I think I need a break ...
Meantime, have a wonderful summertime with Porgy and Bess ;-)

The potting table

My gifted, highly talented and dear friend Catherine B. and I decided to play a four hands piece to offer to another great miniaturist : Pascale Garnier who makes so realistic and beautiful flower kits.
So, I made the table and Catherine painted it.
And, here is the result :

(this time I have chosen to work with lime tree ... bad idea, this wood is not good enough and so breakable)


You must admit I was not lying when I said Catherine is talented ! She has done a wonderful job. For me, now the table is "alive".
And you know what ? I can't imagine Pascale won't like it !!!

See you soon friends !
