Hello everyone : ) Welcome to my new followers.  I have at last almost got my little cottage finished YAY : D  I found This little cottage in a market for the fantastic price of 15 euro Though when i got it home i opened the box looked inside seen ALL these tiny pieces screamed  and closed it back up again haha. A couple of months later i decided to have a go at putting it together and believe it or not it was rather easy and very pretty though not very strong so its well out of reach of the grandchildren lol. I decided with this cottage to make as much as i could for it and as i had never made many miniatures before it was a challenge. Of course along the way i have had so much help support encouragement  and gifts. This cottage ( I must give it a name lol ) is far from being perfect and i know it could do with a lot of improvements but I love it because from this i have learned sooo much. I still have some more things to do in it but they are finishing touches. For this post i will show the house overall and the bedroom. I will show other rooms in future posts.
The bedroom.




The bed dressing table and drawers i bought. My daughter gave me the storage seat. You can just see a spare warm blanket that i made peeking out  :) The wardrobe is one of the first pieces of furniture i made lol no doors something i need to learn to do yet : D A lot of the items in this room are gifts from friend here in blogland and  the forum " Tus Miniatures"  to many to mention Thank you all. The rest i made. I had a lot of fun making this cottage a home. I hope you like :) 
Have a great weekend. Hugs to all my friends.

Hello Maria,
I LOVE it! One thing I have noticed is that every miniaturist has his own personal style. The one word that I think of wevery time I see your work is "enchanting"!
This cottage is enchanting! I want to escape there.
Your miniatures always look so happy!
Have a wonderful weekend dear Maria, and please keep the puictures coming!

Hi Maria,
Your cottage is looking wonderful, you have such a beautiful style!!
The bedroom looks gorgeous and I love the shade of pink you've used. The little wardrobe you've made looks really good. I've never tried to make anything with doors either so will look forward to hearing how you do it!!!
I really love that little lamp, did you make this yourself? it's beautiful!!!
Hugs

Maria Ireland said...

Hi Vicky The shade of pink i used is called pretty pink from the my space from Dulux. I just used a tester pot and still have some left lol. The little lamp was a gift from a lovely lady Toni http://vistiendosuenos.blogspot.com/ She very kindly offered to do a swap with me when i was just starting to do minis. and this was one of her gifts. :)

Maria Ireland said...

Hi Jazzi :) what scale hmmm i dont really know some pieces are 1/12 while others are smaller. I believe its 1/12 the bed would be a ( childs?) single bed. The 1/12 toilet worked but the bath or sink didnt lol so i just fit what worked. Sorry thats probably not very helpful : D
