I am sure this has happened to you:  while searching the Internet for some information, you come across all sorts of interesting links and you get sidetracked from the original search.  Yesterday was one of those days for me.  I found the wonderful flickr photostream of Tim Sidford  ('sweetington').  While I had planned to work on a fire surround,  I could not help myself and spent the best part of the afternoon and evening browsing through his photos.

 With permission, here is a preview of some of Tim's work:

Tim creates these beautiful miniature rooms using decorative paint techniques and basic materials like card, wood and playmobil furniture.  Hold on... playmobil?  Those little bright plastic children's toys?   Yes, that playmobil! Hard to believe, isn't it?


The rooms have many different architectural styles, from Art Deco to Georgian to Regency Chinoiserie.   An  explanation for this great diversity of styles (many of them in one building!) can be found at  'No.1, Sweetington Square. A History'     
There are different 'sets' in sweetington's photostream.  One I really liked because I can follow the working process, is 'Work in progress...'    I hope you'll enjoy Tim's work as much as I have!

    1. Mooi zo! Als je op zijn favorieten klikt kom je ook bij prachtig werk van anderen uit (zoals van een meneer Ken van JBM) maar alleen doen wanneer je de tijd hebt!
