I haven’t built the tiny violin yet, as I have been distracted with other pieces of the lantern. Things have been moving along rapidly. The walls and fireplace are done, the clock face has hands and I have completed the couch, chair and side table: This all entailed a trip to southern New Hampshire andContinue reading “La Lanterna Rosa continued”
As promised, this post is entirely about the grandfather clock I am making for La Lanterna Rosa. I spent most of the day working on it, as tomorrow I am back at work. I started with a half scale grandfather clock kit I purchased from Alphastamps (whose shipping time, I am pleased to say, isContinue reading “The grandfather clock”
Having been home for several days with COVID, I finally had some down time to work on my rococo music room. I simply don’t have the energy to work on any projects for my real house and I can’t focus long enough to knit or embroider. I have decided to move the music room fromContinue reading “La Lanterna Rosa.”
I love Christmas, which, as I am an atheist, is weird. For me, the best part of Christmas is that I can be as generous as I wish and no one can get mad at me. This, however, does take up quite a bit of time. I have been working on some mini projects. AContinue reading “Christmas is in the Air”
Hi everyone! Sorry I haven’t posted in so long. I recently bought a home and have been really busy working on that. Also, I lost my darling cat Johnny and have been bonding with my new cat, Poppy. Poppy is a love, and he came to me about a month before Johnny left. I wouldContinue reading “It has been a while:”
Hi! It’s been a while since I posted. The library is complete. I also took two weeks to create an Easter scene for my sister. She loves Easter and we weren’t able to celebrate last year due to the Pandemic. My next project, which I just started today, is a Rococo Room that will beContinue reading “Catch up post.”
I imagine that the study will be finished within a few days, I thought I would give an update on what’s been happening. When I work on minis, I like to imagine the people who occupy the scenes I am creating. This one is fun because I have been imagining a couple, one person whoContinue reading “The study is nearing completion”
His Lordship’s study is coming along. Here’s what it looks like now: I like the way the mantle came out, though I still need a portrait to go above it. The mantle scarf is made from some lace my lovely friend and co-worker, Bambi. She’s a crafter herself, though not a miniaturist. Choosing wall artContinue reading “Back to the study”
I finished up the finishing touches on the bathroom today. The high light, in my opinion is the tiny clothes I made to go on the chair. Here they are, tiny robe, undergarments and slippers. Unfortunately, the bathrobe didn’t look quite right in the room so I decided to leave it out. Here are theContinue reading “And the Bathroom is Done!”
The ripperologist’s library was rapidly becoming a CASITAS (crafter speak for CAn’t Stand IT Another Second), so I put it aside for a little while to work on a tiny bathroom. I’ve had such fun doing it that I am almost finished and haven’t written a post about it yet. I started with a smallContinue reading “Stepping away from the library.”
