A sneak peak at my Tennyson dollhouse


These last months I have been working a lot so I haven't had time to update my blog, but here comes a sneak peak at my ongoing project, the Tennyson dollhouse.

I have made roof shingles from egg carton and glued them to my porch roof, I then used different shades och gray when I painted them. Now I "only" have to make roof shingles for the rest of the house roof.... I will need a lot of egg cartons ..So there will be a lot of omelets ;)




I think that the miniatures are the most fun to do so I started to do them even though there is much left to do on the building's exterior. Here is a tiny birdhouse made in clay (my favorite medium) which I then painted and aged. Then I also made the religieuse pastries, which was fun to make. The white flowers are made by Michelle in Greece, they are so beautiful! I only painted the pot so it would fit in my color theme.

In a few days I will have more photos to post here!



I also want to welcome all new blog followers, hope you will enjoy your visits to my blog!

Have a nice weekend, Hanna

Once more, an amazing miniature. :) But, then again, unlike Karin, I would like to have them preserved in glass cages. Forever!

Wow, du är verkligen sjukt imponerande! Jag skulle aldrig klara av att göra något av vad du lyckas pilla ihop :D
Jag ska tipsa min sambo om din blogg, hon älskar miniatyrer ^^
Jag vill också berätta att jag är med och tävlar om ett mineralsmink-kit hos Helen på hiilen.blogg.se (check her out!) åt min underbara sambo!

The egg carton roof tiles look great, I have never tried it. I think you will be eating a lot of omelettes, maybe egg flips too. I love your mini food too!
