This corner of the attic shows well the finished wall panelling. The wardrobe I bought in Paris, it is only a cheaper miniature but it painted-up really well. The little table is a kit and holds some wonderful items sent to me from Mercedes....thank you again!
In the other corner is another table made from a kit...I love kits!!! This table hold a little sail boat, the hull I carved from bulsa wood and the sails are tea dyed hankerchief linen. The carpet is one I made ages ago, it was just laying about so I rolled it up and popped it in the corner....I think it works there? The 3 tier plant stand is a piece I love, it was a horrid dark green when I bought it, but a couple of coats of paint and a little bit of 'aging' and I now love it all the more!
I bought the wonderful little 'darning mushroom' in Paris....it a piece made by English miniaturist David Edwards, the handle separates from the main body and hold the sewing needles of which there are two....I love this piece.....notice I bought the one with the thread in the colours of France. I made the little 'Sajou' patterns.
The side table holds a magazine made by the wonderful Rosanna.....I love so much that the 'petite maison' holds items made by new friends....
Now.....the crown, this was a gift from my sister many years ago....for christmas if I remember correctly! It is a piece I wanted to use, but found it hard to place in any of the other rooms, so it now sits happily in the attic....perhaps it was used for a fancy dress party or something??.....that's the good thing about miniatures, you can come up with any story you like in your head.
These are a recent purchase and yes!!! I love them. These are made by Grace from http://www.treefeathers.com/ ..... they all have real pages and if you 'click' on the photo and enlarge the image you will see the fabulous titles.....I adore the aged look of the books, there is only one problem with these......Grace has sooooo many titles to choose from that I will have to go back and buy more!!!
....lastly, my little cotton reel on the floor. When I was trying to put the threads on the table....'so much easier said than done'....one fell onto the rug and I liked how it looked, so I decided to leave it there.
