Dressing table in the attic



Still working on my Miniature House, rather quietly......reaching completion slowly....

I have another corner in my 1:12 house that feels like there's nothing to add anymore; it's in the "blue attic".   To start with I bought a wooden piece of furniture and painted it.




Next I made two suitcases out of foamboard, fabric, wire and strips of painted paper.





I added a tiny pile of "lace and linen", held together with a ribbon.



To make things complete, I cut a piece of mirror-sheet, aged it 
and glued it into a kind of metal embellishment I bought.

Next I made two pieces handsoap (if you like to know how: http://michaelas-miniaturen.beeplog.de/151819_480971.htm)

Finally placing a lovely watering can from Elisabeth Causeret on top of the dressing table.

And here it is.....another step taken in decorating my doll's house.






To my fellow bloggers I would like to say; it's a bit more quiet in "Blog-land"  than it used to be,
but I am happy you are still updating your blogs.
For I visit them as much as I can and your posts keep me inspired.
My thanks to all of you!

Oh, I can comment again?? Jippie!
Love your blue room!!! I would love to come and stay in your house if I were 12 times smaller.
Your suitcases look really beautiful.
You have an eye for detail and for making everything match perfectly.
I love it and I hope you will continue working on this house (or start a new one) as you are an inspiration!!
Liefs,

Jaaaaa, ik mag weer een reactie schrijven: fijn, Tessa :D!!
Zoals ik al eerder op Fb heb geschreven vind ik jouw blauwe zolder prachtig tot nu toe. Het heeft dan ook helemaal mijn favoriete kleurenschema ;D!
Ik ben blij dat je de tijd kunt vinden om aan jouw prachtige huis te werken, het vordert gestaag, maar het resultaat mag er dan ook zijn. Ik vind het mooi staan de gestapelde koffertjes met de plaids/dekens en het strikje maakt het af.
Het kastje kreeg een pracht makeover en het lampetstel met spiegel erboven maken het fijntjes af.
Lieve groetjes, Ilona

Hi Tessa!
I LOVE your blue dresser AND I LOVE the various accessories which you have placed all around it!
The suitcases are Superb and the bundled linen is enchanting!
Blue and white is one of my favorite color combinations in Real Life decorating because it always looks Fresh and inviting, just as your Mini Blue Room does! :D

I love your latest additions. They are not girly and pink and yet are still feminine and pretty. I also love that you have such a mixture of items - new, modern, recycled and antique. It is beautiful! :0)

Blue is one of my favorite colors and this is just gorgeous. Love your suitcase and that wallpaper is a perfect background for the dresser and linens.

A great job on the blue room! Your suitcases are wonderful. Lovely result. .... but is a room ever totally finished in miniature. Hard to stop adding small treasures as time goes on.
All the best regards
