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

Baking miniatures

Here is my latest minis, cupcakes! I love to experiment with the textures in miniature food and this set gave me a lot of fun!

As you can see on the picture below the cupcakes are pretty tiny and a couple of times when I worked with them they fell from my table... before they got in the oven, now that is a test for even the most patient person! Luckily I could finish them at the end.

I also experimented with different backgrounds when I took the photos, the first photo here is with a picture of a kitchen in a magazine as background, what do you think about it?

I like the effect but I didn't got a good contrast in the photo.

Golden butter bundt cake & cherries ~ Gyllene sockerkaka & körsbär

This is the latest of my miniature creations, a golden butter bundt cake filled with cherries and a tiny chocolate heart. It was so fun to make and I think I got the color right which makes a world of difference in miniature food. I also make a few servings, have a bite!

One thing is a bit tricky though... to take the photos in the right light so that they wont get overexposed. When I got more time I am thinking of building a light box and experiment a bit more with my photographs.

det här är min senaste miniatyr, en gyllene
sockerka fylld med körsbär och ett chokladhjärta. Det var roligt att göra den och jag
tror jag fick till färgen rätt, vilken gör en enorm
skillnad för miniatyr mat.

Sedan gjorde jag även
några upplagda skivor av sockerkakan, have a bite :)

I would like to welcome all my latest new blog reader and I hope you all will have a nice weekend!


Sen vill jag hälsa alla nya blog läsare här välkomna!
Ha en bra helg allihop!

Valentine´s day chocolates and one year older!

This weekend I got time to finish these Valentine´s day chocolates and boxes. To be my firsts I like the result and the chocolates where so fun to make!
Now I really feel for some real chocolate :) Luckily for me I have a really good metabolism and never gets heavier even if I love sweets!

The last two day´s my sister and her lovely kids
have visited me to celebrate my birthday! We have had a lot of fun and even got time to visit a museum here in Gothenburg (with thousands of stuffed animals) , the kids was so excited and ran around looking at everything. Then we made a tasty vanilla sponge cake with raspberries and whipped cream! A very nice birthday indeed!

My Tennyson

I remembered that I promised to show my Tennyson doll house, so here is some pictures! I have built the fist and second floor here and painted the window trims for the inside walls.

And here my Tennyson starts to look like a house. I am thinking of using a withe color for the walls and lavender lilac and light blue for the trims and porch. I am also going to give the house a dark grey stone foundation and grey tiles to the roof. Theres a lot to to and sometimes I wish I had a couple of weeks free from studies to only work on my Tennyson and on new miniatures!

Last but not least I missed to show you guys my little gingerbread house for Christmas. It is all made in polymer clay and the tiny non-stops (a Swedish brand like m & m's) took a while to make :)

Right now I am also working on some valentine miniature sweets which makes my mouth watering (: I will show them in my next post here.

Have a nice weekend and take care!
