Happy Bastille Day

Happy 14th July - yes I did mean the 14th - for any French or Francophile friends out there. It's Bastille day, and I'm half French, so with that in mind, voici des belles miniatures qui ne sont pas forcément français, mais qui me rappelle de la France.

Full English

This ring is one of my favourite things to make. It's cute as a dollhouse miniature, 
but I like to make it into an interesting piece of jewellery too.
It's available in my shop right now.


I especially enjoy assembling the final plate of food once all the components
have been made. The fiddly little beans are fun to mix in their tomato sauce.

Watermelon

Here is a miniature watermelon and slices I made recently for my Etsy shop



Nothing says Summer like watermelon!

I also use the tiny little slices to make earrings.



I love the little green stripes on these!

Mmmm Cheesecake

A little, 12th scale cheesecake set for you. I don't actually like 
cheesecake in real life, but I imagine plenty of dolls would enjoy it!


I love constructing dollhouse miniature cheesecakes with all the different slices of fruit.

Here are a few I made ages ago that eventually found new homes.

Feature: Acorn Trail

I found a pure miniature delight on Etsy recently. I know these aren't 
traditionally a gardener's friend, but which dollhouse garden wouldn't look 
even cuter with one of these tiny creatures hidden within it?

These miniature snails are the creation of Acorn Trail who you can find on Etsy.


I just can't get over the tiny details on the shells
and the adorable, translucent bodies. How can a creature
I truly don't care for in real life be so enticing in miniature?

Summer Flowers

Here is a mini quilt (not a dollhouse miniature) I made a while ago that feels particularly apt now Summer is officially here. We even had a weekend of good weather recently - although it's now gone grey and overcast again. This is Britain after all.


This design was my own, hand-sewn using English paper piecing. I really enjoyed how intricate it was.


There are a few insects hidden about the place.


And a few mice!


And lots of summer flowers. Here's hoping for a bit more sunshine in the weeks to come.
