.....get out of the kitchen!
Well that's just what I did today, I am enjoying the summer (which has finally arrived) in the shade of my garden. I'm doing a little bit of work on the fireplace for the reception room of my second canal house. I will show it to you when it is finished, it is almost done!
In the mean time I will show you what I have been working on the first half of this year: a 17th century miniature kitchen. For those of you who are thinking they are experiencing a déjà vu, you are right in thinking you have seen this before. Well almost anyway. This kitchen is based on the one I made two years ago, with just a few adjustments.
The beautiful tilt top table was made for me by Colin Bird. I put in the accessories (silver by Jens Torp) and the chairs (by John Hodgson) just for the photo.
The kitchen cabinet is different from the first kitchen I made. This one is placed against the back wall allowing for a slightly better view of miniatures which will be put into the top part. The door closes with a little latch on the inside, which is rather fun.
I painted a marble imitation on the counter top and floor. Again, the accessories are just there for the photo, I don't think they had bottles of balsamic vinegar in the 17th century ;-). Silver is by Jens Torp and the cheese board was made by Hanna Lindroth ( Miniature Chef ) and won by me in her giveaway last year.
