Profiteroles Tower and Giveaway by Pei Li

I'm a little late joining Pei Li's wonderful giveaway. But the theme fits perfect to my bakery, because now comes the fun part and I'm filling the shelves with all the little artworks I was collecting over the last years. And here is one of Pei Li's masterpieces. I'm very proud to own it, so it deserves a place in the first line :) It's beautiful, isn't it!

And of course I would love to win these gorgeous christmas themed cupcakes. I love the idea and colours!
Please skip on over to Pei Li's blog and try your luck!

In my next post I will show more of my filled shelves and you remember Wilma Wendelstein in the previous post? I will show her new clothes... :)

Bakery and Arnhem purchases

Here is my bakery. Even if it looks like it is finished, well it is finished almost, only a few things to do... I started building it a few years ago and this is how it looks so far.

I bought the furnitures from Beate Holzner on Ebay she also sells her miniatures on the Arnhem fair. The furniture are made of plywood, so first I had to prepare them (all shelves edges) with a kind of plaster for wood, then I had to sanded them a lot, than pained them twice and at last gave them a layer of varnish, so a lot of work...

I built the room box for the bakery by my own design in the same way and size like I built the boutique.

And here comes my treasures from the Arnhem fair:

Garden table and chair by Piamini, pottery by Elisabeth Causeret (except the teapot, it is by Jason Feltrope) and the basket is made by Will Werson.
The fruits on the table are by Kiva, the cupcake is by Lory and the book by Michaela.

And last but not least here is a lovely little person who wants a job in the bakery. She only has to get a few new clothes...

Bathroom and Welcome!

Haven't posted for a while, I had problems with posting and leaving comments on blogs. I saw that other bloggers also have had problems...
But anyway, now it worked again and here are some pictures of the bathroom. I made the washing table by myself.
And a warm Welcome to all my followers :)

Progress with the roombox

Please click on the pics to enlarge

I'm not satisfied with the quality of the photos. My camera isn't good anymore, have to buy me a new one...
I made the door from wood and cardstock and painted it with white acrylic paint, than I added some "dirty" paint water.
Most of the accessoires you see here and in the following photos are bought from different seller years ago, mostly on Ebay or on fairs. I just do not remember all names! The only miniature I remember here is the little giraffe. It's made by twelfhdimension on Etsy.

I designed and build the cupboard and shelves from wood by my own design. First I wanted to build a bench between them with a window, but I decided not to...  The doors can be opened, but they are not really working, they are stuck into the cupboard, they have no hinges yet. The two little doors above can not be opened.
This is the small table I showed you in the previous post. I glued all the small mosaic stones on it... a lot of work and (surprice, surprice) it isn't finished right now, I still have to plaster it with some sort of cast.

The two sewing baskets are made by me
Even though it seems like the room box is finished, it isn't! There are some things I still have to do, like moulding for the ceeling and the floor... or the cupboard, shelfes and chamber wall panelling need more paint, they are too white and clean!

New old room box and glitterchurch kit

Two years ago or so I started to build this room box that I designed by myself. These days I decided to take it out of the "drawer" where it has hidden over the time and try to finish it. Here are the first pics before finishing it.

I think the two rooms will be a bathroom and a sleepingroom or nursery. I'm not sure yet.

Hope to show you the progress I will made in the next weeks, hopefully!!!
I also started to make this little table. I glued all these small colourful stones on it. Than I have to paint it.

Aaand here comes the wonderful glitterchurch kit from the very talented Karin Corbin which I won as a party favor on her blog. Thanks once again Karin, when it is finished I will find a nice place for it :-) It's 1:288 scale, so very small but building it was working good, but I'm not finished yet! What a surprise, my list of unfinished project grows and grows... ;-)
It's colour is peach, very lovely.
