Welcome to new follower Claude of the Blog
  Patoulliage and Patouilis, I don't know what it means,
but it sounds lovely!

 One of my favourite climbers in my real-life little garden is the Wisteria. I was thrilled to find a miniature kit to make one for my 1:12 castle garden. You can buy all sorts of flower kits in the shop of Georgie Steeds : TheMiniatureGarden. This is a picture of the finished kit, is'nt it beautiful ?! And also  I add  pictures of my progress so far...
 The tiny green leaves are glued one by one to the wire  with tweezer help, I find this process rather relaxing !

Hand sewing is bliss !

From this Blog Kleidung um 1800 by Sabine, I grabbed a lovely picture with the words :Handsewing is Bliss. I love to handsew the little clothes for my porcelain dollhouse dolls, It makes me calm and I feel I am doing something usefull, do you recognize the feeling ?  I do use Aleen`s Tacky glue though, I am not a saint. But as little as possible.

Dress in progress

Every Edwardian gentleman needs a hobby. This handsome man likes to hunt, his shotgun is not loaded and is "broken". So he is completely safe, and as he is only 16 cm tall he is quitte harmless .

Butterfly girl

This little girl came from the same mold as Fleur, this time I dressed her in 18th century style and gave her a butterfly net to play with .

Where did 2017 go ...

I have no excuse for not posting so long, other than that my partner moved in with me. Because of that there was a lot of moving and selling stuff to make room for him. But the biggest bedroom in my little house still is my dollhouse/dollmaking sanctuary ! I started as a postie for the Dutch postal service on Jan 16th 2017, because staying to much in the house didn`t do my health any good. So now I walk and cycle a lot ! I did make and dress dolls in 2017 and sold them on Miniature shows and in my Etsy shop .
And the first doll in 2018 I made for a very nice lady, and she named the doll Fleur.
