Ik heb ook nog een bloemstukje gemaakt voor Karin(westzijde)waar ik morgen uitgenodigd ben om te gaan lunchen en lekker te kletsen over onze mini hobby,ik heb er echt zin in.

    Je maakt prachtige bloemen Josje...later als ik groot ben hoop ik dat ik net zo goed wordt als jij!

  10. I gasped out loud when I saw these photos. The peonies are gorgeous, but I really can't get over the light. Photos of miniatures almost always seem just a bit off to me, no matter how perfectly everything is made, because the lighting doesn't quite work. Your photos have exquisitely natural looking light, which completes the illusion that everything is 'real'. Wonderful photos of amazing miniatures!

  11. Rosanna, the glass vases are by our Dutch glassblower Leo Reijnders. Unfortunately he doesn't have a website, he comes to the Arnhem show twice a year.
    The little plate (you mean the one with the pink rim, right?) I can help you with. I bought it from Lisa's Little Things http://www.lisaslittlethings.com/china.htm It is made of plastic, but very pretty. I love her plate sets.

    Sans, thank you so much! :-) I'll pick up your award later today.

    I like a little storytelling with pictures. Lighting is often very difficult because you're working with such small spaces. I find daylight gives the best results and as in a real house the light only enters through windows and doors, I try to copy that in miniature. It gives it a more natural look.

  12. Thank you very much for the hints. I'll try to come to Arnhem sooner or later

  13. Oh my goodness, what gorgeous peonies! The pictures are stunning and absolutely do make everything look so real!

    I too, love the glassware! Perhaps Leo should think about starting up a website . . . I'm sure he'd have many interested in purchasing his stunning creations! Me included! LOL!

  14. Josje, I tried finding a way to contact you other than leaving a comment here. I'm wondering if you make and sell your peonies? The ones in my garden have me wishing for some miniature ones to put in my doll houses! Thanks!

  17. Sorry for my late response everyone, but real life got in the way.
    MiniMadWoman, I do sometimes sell my miniatures. I'll send you an email. I suppose I should put an email button on here...
    Thank you Reiko, the real ones in my garden were the inspiration for them!
    Thanks Jemjoop!
    Thank you Mirja, hope you'll enjoy reading my posts.

    1. Thanks Fi! These are some of my favourite photos, I suppose it helps that I love peonies in real life as well ;-)
