More little cushions....!!


In my last post I showed you one cushion I had made......well, here we have all of the others. These are placed on an 'Australian Miners Couch'.....it's a 'small pleasures kit'..... but I think it works well as the couch for the 'petite maisons' dressing room.
I have completed festoons and silk drapes for the 'salon' and an 'austrian blind' here in the dressing room, so apart from waiting for one last parcel in the mail to complete the 'salon', I can now actually say it is FINISHED!!!!!........as finished as any house would be, (as a lot of you have stated,) I am sure I will change a few items, perhaps add a few things, a new purchase etc. But apart from all of that, it is completed.....to the best of my ability!

Congrats Linda.How do you feel? Happy and relieved or a bit empty ? I often wondered how I'd feel when my project will be over. As over as a house might be of course.Best regards Rosanna x

And oui, j'adore!!! Good job. They are beautiful. Love your blog. You really grab the 1700 very well. Better than me, i would say. Even coming from Paris. I think crazy little hands at my house cramp my style.HAHAHA
Come see my blog. I am looking for friends!

I love these cushions! Very clever . Saw a load of the at the display windows of Venice too.

Linda, you will love love Genova, I think.

I am glad in so many ways, that my houses are far far from finish :). But they hardly ever are. I just 'spring cleaned" my 1 year tent couple of weeks ago :). Yours, however, looks perfect already.And I don't think you will want to change much after this.

Beautiful cushions ! How do you feel now that your house is finished ? A dolls'house is just like a real size one, even if the decoration is finished there are always somethings you can change.

These cushions are the perfect finishing accessory. I can't think what you could add now to improve your Petite Maison. It's truly inspirational.

For the finale, do we get a grand tour? Irene

Linda Carswell said...

Thank you for such lovely comments!

Oh Irene....try and stop me...lol!!! I'm just waiting on the final item to arrive in the mail and then I shall certainly do 'show & tell'....you will probably all be shouting ...'STOP, NO MORE....please, no more'!!!!
No seriously, I do look forward to showing it to you all.

Norma said...

Congratulations Linda! A project to be proud of from start to finish - EVERYTHING in between just wonderful including these fabulous cushions and couch. Looking forward to seeing your 'completed' posts - and I can't imagine that anyone of us will cry "no more"!!!! More likely that there be cries of "Encore! Encore!"

Catherine said...

Congratulations on finishing the house!!! Your cushions are lovely!

Being a relatively new reader, I am feeling a bit sad. I have looked forward to every new post and I have never been disappointed. Your blog is like a beautiful magazine. You just can't wait to get the next issue.

I am going to ask the question I think everyone wants to know. What can we look forward to next?

Marie Arden said...

Lovely
I bet you are proud you should be what an accomplishment. Do you have another house in you?

I love your blog please don't take it down.

Linda Carswell said...

Oh dear...please don't think that the 'petite maison' is finished and so am I!! I love blogging, I have boxes of miniature furniture that needs some where to live and if I didn't start another project, what would my idle fingers do!
YES!! There will be more....lots more!

contar said...

Really beautiful all the cushions, they seem to be so comfortable that they give desire of sitting down and to hug each other to them.
A greeting


Realmente hermoso todos los cojines, ellos parecen ser tan cómodos que ellos dan el deseo de sentarse y abrazarles el uno al otro.
Un saludo

puddinglane said...

Hi Linda, I just love that miners couch - I have a big person's Edwardian Day-bed in my house - it has been well used for sleeping and for sitting on - i'm sure your couch will be also.

Margaret said...

Linda, I love your cushions and house you've done an amazing job, and your site is so inspiring. Some great ideas. I'm originally from Launceston so it was good to see such talent in Tassie. I hope you start your next project soon.

minwks said...

Dear Linda, Curious about the "Australian miners bench"- do you call it that or is it a specific design? I could not find it in kit form when I searched.
I think that it could be used in so many applications - certainly reminds me of a Swedish bench as well.
Regards and thanks for the continued photos and inspiration.

Dear Linda,

Norma contacted me re: permission to use photos from My Shabby Streamside Studio. Permission granted!

I must say my jaw dropped looking at your site. I've never seen a 'dollhouse' like this - what a big little world you have!

Warmly,
Sandy Foster

Anne said...

Congratulations for finishing your Petite Maison. I've been following your blog almost since the beginning and I don't know how I'm going to get along without my regular "fix" of gorgeous and stunning updates. I too am an unabashed Francophile and I've gone back through the photos you've posted many times. Maybe you could compile your notes and pictures in order for a grand tour of your Petite Maison....
Please...

Reiko said...

Beautiful pillows you have made. Now with an almost finished house what will you be making ? You are so talented that I am looking forward to see more. You are for sure an inspiration for my mini-castle.

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

Oh Linda, thank you for visiting me! I am honored that you would take the time to come by and see who your fan is!!

My dear wonderful friend, The Dutchess sent me the link to your blog one day as a little "gift" after I had had a hard day at work. She told me to "spoil" myself with this little treat, and she was referred to your blog. I started a mini blog myself, but it is in its beginning stages. Your furniture is exquisite and beautifully presented. Another favorite of mine is Synnove's blog but I can't remember the name of site. She is from Norway and is delightful.

Thank you again for taking us away to a sweet place of calm!

Have a lovely, wonderful day! Anita

Congrats to having finished the little great treasure that is the Petite Maison.
It makes me feel a bit sad, though. Well, let's wait to see your next project, hoping you keep on sharing it with us. Your works are jewels, Linda. So beautiful, so inspiring... it would be hard to live without them.
Warm regards from Spain.
