"La Petite Maison"....part 1.

Okay.....(deep breath).....I shall start showing you the 'completed' petite maison over a series of 4 or 5 parts. Most are 'fresh' photos that I have taken over the past week or 2, but there are probably a few that you may have already seen, I do hope you don't mind seeing them again!
This of course is the kitchen table, covered with lovely treasures I have bought from wonderful miniaturist from all over of the world.

Next is the buffet in the salon....all set ready for company. There are some really special pieces here, macaroons from Linda Cummings, the pyramid of clementines from Paris Miniatures, the wonderful tea-cosy from Sandi Quance and the little silver tea pot from a trip to New York.

The grand piano I made using a kit, it was a bit tricky to make at times, but I am perfectly pleased with the final result. A beautiful vase made by Margaret Crosswell holds a bunch of pretty pink tulips.

....and of course another photo of the amazing 'petit point' cushions made by Sandi Quance. This little couch sits in the centre of the main salon and shares the room with the grand piano. I know I haven't shown too much of this room in the past, but I shall post photos of the completed room very soon.
Enjoy, Linda x

I love your "Petite Maison" Linda!
It is outstanding and exceptional. I am not sure if you consider your self to be an amateur miniaturist, but I would like to say that I consider you to be a professional! Your taste and eye for details, the way you are presenting the interior of the ”Petite Maison",
I would say it is high class art!!!!!

Karina Gentinetta said...

Can I tell you, at first I didn't know if I was looking at your house and I fell in love with it. I know a lot of barbies, including myself, who would love to live there. It is art at its best. Love it!!

Have watched this blog and am in awe at the exquisite work done. Loving the photos and explanations. What will those talented itchy fingers produce next I wonder. xD

Josje said...

Now there's nothing in your house I don't like, but OH! that tea cosy and the silver teapot...I just adore those!

Catherine said...

I agree Josje! I love the house and everything in it. The ambiance is wonderful in every single room. I also have my favorite little pieces. At the top of the list is petite point pillows and the tea cozy, they are so special.
