A suitcase and more bed room:)))))

As I told you I attended a workshop by Wim van Soest.
Wim is a fantastic man, and a very good teacher and explains
everything clearly. He is an amazing artist and makes the most
wonderful, working miniatures! He has no website,sorry?
Stineke Faber organisez these meetings in her little shop.
Please go over to her site if you like 
She was a wonderful hostess the whole day, and she take good care
of us. 

This is the suitcase I have made, I wanted to show you more 
detailed pictures, but my old camera died just a couple of minutes ago.
I'm very proud of my suitcase and I exactly know, in what
scene I will use it...but that is an other project I have in mind.

First I planning to finish my French house before I start a new one:))))
So, I show you pictures I had in stock of the bed room. 
Don't mind the floor, that is the last thing to do in this room, but
still did not figured out what kind of floor it will be?

The ceiling is also finished in this the bath room I
did the same with the you an other time:)
I also made sheets and cushions for the bed. Of course it
needs a blanked and perhaps more cushions but that
I'll fix later:)))

I also add a canopy with padded blue silk fabric over the bed, 
to make it look more romantic.

Last week I had some free time (just like today:)))
to work on my miniatures..having so much fun!!!

But because I don't know how long it will last, I'm working like
a crazy woman,;)))) I finished some more things
in the French house and I realy like to show it to you, but
I have to wait for a new camera???

Soon I promise xxxxxx

Today I had a wonderful day...I followed a workshop from Wim van Soest,

came home, there was an other surprise waiting for me.

My give-away I won by Flora, by casa delle Bamboli
arrived by mail........

 This beautiful frame with tiny sea shells was the give-away I won.
Absolutely adorable...too cute I think :))))))

 But a second surprise was this extra gift?
Wow, isn't it amazing!!!! 
This carpet is just fantastic...the colors and style are
just perfect for the French house, and will be just the
right piece for the floor in the living room.

Of course I had to play with my new gifts and the
frame has this perfect place in the bed room of the Greek house.

Yes, floor,walls.... done!

I can't beleive it myself, but I finished the bathroom?
Well, I finished the floor etc. and did some little decoration too.
That is the most fun part for me, decorating!!!

I still miss the bath, shower and wash stand and
lots of other stuff to fill the bathroom, but for now I'm happy:)))
The treat of having a room finished  is, that you can
open all your little boxes, and get all the little treasures out to give
them a place....treasures from dear friends and purchased goods,
made by talented miniaturists.

The quality of the photographes are not that good, but I hope you 
enjoy them as well?

Free Time??????

Yesterday I had a busy day, my calendar was full of appointments and other things to do!
Then suddenly the unexpected happened, two appointments were canceled and I had some free time!!!!

I felt a kind of panic and wanted to devote my time to good use....
so what to do???????

I decided to work on my French House, but the first two hours, nothing came
out of my hands. Where to sart or begin?
After waisting two precious hours...I started with the whittening of all ceilings,
useful job if have nothing better to do......

After that I started with some progress in the bathroom. I already made some molds
of stone for the walls, but never had time to confirm them. So next job was done...
Than I made a frame to devide the bathroom from the coridor, it needs some glass
but there is a begin. It is unbeleivable but my progress goes in the right direction!!!

To top the heat level , I also made a begin for the floor tiles...should not get
any crazier:)))))))))))))))))

 Though I know you like to see more miniatures from my hand, I have to tell
you that I'm still not into the miniatures. There are so many other things to need
to be care off in real live that I simply decided to work on my projects around
Christmas time I think????
A couple of weeks ago I did make a mattress for the bed....
I know it needs sheets etc, but for now it will stay this way.
