It has been months since I have made something for my own dolls house. Yesterday I had some time and made a little something again. Keys with little enamel numbers hanging from them. I know, nothing major, but I think they're cute and I enjoyed making them.

  1. They are really nice :) Are the keys bought or have you done them yourself?

  3. Ira, I had the keys (they had been laying on the stairs for years!) but they were gold and I didn't really like them. So I aged them and made them black to match the enamel numbers. They didn't photograph very well, but they look very nice now!

    Lisette, ik zal mijn best doen, haha! Ik heb gisteren nog de oude posts (een jaar of drie geleden) van Marmod gelezen over dat ze haar sleutels kwijt was -en ik ook. Jij postte toen een foto van mijn verloren sleuteltje met 'alsjeblieft' erbij. Zo leuk om dat weer eens terug te lezen.

  4. I love them! It's these little details you make that bring your scenes to life and make them so special. :)

  5. Do you want to open a B&B? The numbers are lovely, really worth of the surrounding.An I love the lilies too. Rosanna

  6. It's often the simplest of ideas that turn out to have the most 'wow', this is one of them. A perfect little detail :)

    And yes, the lillies are lovely too as Rosanna said - I'd been so taken with the keys that I didn't notice them but when I saw Rosanna's remark I went back for another look!

  7. It would never occur to me to change the colour of little keys! Inspiring idea and I like the table they're sitting on too - it has lovely shaped legs.

  9. The lillies are really beautiful but the keys steal the show. They are just great!!! :-)
    They remind me of all the times I came home from a trip with a hotel key still in my pocket that I had to mail back.

  10. I have to confess that I love the whole picture. I noticed ALL the details at once! The flowers (gorgeous) in a pretty vase, the very handsome painted plate (Dutch Chinoiserie?), atop a very attractive piece of furniture with dainty legs and an X stretcher just barely visible and pretty brass pulls on the drawers. I squinted to identify the wallpaper/painteffect below the dado (to no avail)?

    And then the CUTE keys!

    Did I miss anything? I hope not!

    Oh, just one more thing! Who took 24 2nd 26??!!

  17. Het zijn de kleine dingen die het doen en dit is er weer een voorbeeld van! Geweldig. Nogmaals een compliment voor je prachtige foto's. De lelie's zijn zo echt gemaakt.

    Groetjes, Roelie

  20. Soms hoeven het geen grote dingen te zijn, maar juist de kleine dingen die net ff een extra realiteit aan de mini's geven...en juist zo'n bosje sleutels liggend op een kastje maken het net of er echt mensjes wonen in het pph.

    Sabihax...en uh ben gek op sleutels, ik heb er één in mijn naam,haha!

  23. Ach ik heb niet voor niets de quote, 'Think small to create something great', ga je een hotel beginnen? Ze zijn prachtig gemaakt, en handig, de labels, je weet tenminste waar ze op passen en raakt ze niet zo snel kwijt.

  24. I must admit when I started on the key numbers I thought of how they could fit into the story of my house. It could be a hotel or B&B, but I decided against that. So I don't know where they're from. Doors to houses? Rooms? Garden sheds perhaps? Maybe I'll find out one day.

    For all of you who commented on the lillies, I did not make those. They were made by an English lady whose name escapes me at the moment. The little table was made by a friend and was given to me (along with all her other miniature stuff) when she decided to concentrate on one hobby, computer graphics. Lucky me!

  25. @Sabiha: weet je dat dat me nu pas opvalt, haha!! Nou als we dorst krijgen weten we bij wie we moeten zijn! :))))

    @Lisette: Goed geheugen heb jij! Maar dat dacht ik wel, je hebt wel vaker opmerkingen over iets dat langer geleden is.

    @Lize: The porcelain plate is a copy of a chinese (17th century?) plate, painted by Cocky Wildschut. As you know the Dutch imported shiploads of porcelain in those days, and it was extremely popular. Still is, really.
    The paint effect is a marble imitation, copied from an existing hallway in a 17th century building which is now a museum. You can see a better picture here: http://josje-bouwt.blogspot.com/2009/06/entrance-hall.html

  27. Thank you Karen!
    Your name sounded so familiar to me, so I visited your profile and blog, but I don't think I've ever seen it before. Lovely pictures on your blog! I've saved a few for inspiration, so who knows you may see something familiar pass by here in future. In miniature of course!
