A few days ago one of my Dutch readers asked me about the chest of drawers and what was in the red box on top of it. I promised her to take some photographs of the box and its contents, so here they are:
I made the chest of drawers a few years ago from a kit (The House of Miniatures? MiniMundus? I can't remember) I still have to make the handles for it, but I want to make silver ones. Jens Torp has explained to me how to make them, so now all I have to do is sit down and MAKE them. Easy. Right? Uhm...
For the flowers I used pre-punched leaves by VaRIAatjes, I love the look of these Peonies. The wash basin and jug are part of my handpainted collection. I have not finished this one yet, (it still needs leaves etc) but I probably ran out of time during the class and forgot to bring it the next class.
A more detailed shot of the red box. In it is a lovely miniature cameo brooch which I found at the Arnhem show last autumn. I think I bought it from
Nostalgia Interior Design Specialist, but I am not entirely sure.
