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...
