I worked on my dollhouse this weekend and want to share what I accomplished.
The first photo shows my antique china head, whom I've named Sophronia, in the library with one of the books I made. If you look closely, you can see a dried flower between the pages.
The second photo is of my Jamestown fireplace. It came assembled, and I just sealed and stained it to match the other furniture. The insert is made to simulate a coal burning fire, and it realistically flickers! The two tiny candlesticks with candles are new purchases, and there is a Meiji era Japanese Satsuma miniature vase on its way for the mantel as well.
Third photo is of my latest creation for tea. It's a cake made with polymer clay, ribbon, and moss. This is a project from a UK dollhouse magazine, which gives step-by-step instructions. It was a lot of fun, but I have a lot of practicing to do! It's challenging working in this scale. The china tray pattern is Blue Onion from Reutter Porcelain of Germany.
The last photo is of a framed copy of a sampler. The sampler is dated 1741 and by Anna Burr. I reduced it and printed it but had to make it look like material rather than paper so I crumpled the paper over and over again until a softer material-like texture was achieved.
Thanks for looking!
