Adding to the collection....



....yes, I'm very slowly adding to my collection for the next project. I'm not a fast worker, I always like to take my time when I am making/beginning a new project, if fact it doesn't really bother me if it does take years to make. I would prefer to get the exact pieces I need (or want) and I don't mind waiting until I do.
These are some fabulous little items I have sitting on my desk, I don't pack them away as they add to the inspiration for the next miniature house and I love to add new items and see that they blend well together.....I don't like any one piece to dominate.
.....I do hope you know what I mean....lol!....
Of course some of these items may be left as they are, some may be painted...only time will tell!

¡Que objetos tan bonitos! Tienes razón en tenerlos a la vista, así los reformas o añades el que falta. Los proyectos debemos disfrutarlos, sin prisas, cambiando sobre la marcha :)
Besos Clara.

You have excellent taste Linda:) I think that one of the reasons your miniatures and houses are wonderful is that you carefully plan and don't rush things. Hope you enjoy your new home. We are still digging in the ground;)

A summer picnic theme comes to mind just looking at them !

Tienes una preciosa coleccion.
Estando a la vista puedes ir pensando en lo que te falta, en lo que tienes que tunear y te puedes hacer una idea de como vas a poner las minis.
Disfruta de tu nuevo proyecto, no importa lo que se tarde, sino el resultado y haberlo pasado bien haciendolo.
besitos ascension

The long project preparation, usually leads to excellent results!
All this stuff makes a great figure stacked on your desk (sometimes I keep some new miniature on the bedside table to make sweet dreams and wake up with the right ideas!): the tennis racquet, the basket hardy, yellow flowers, the touriste guide, I suggest a second home outside the city where you can relax and enjoy your holiday ...
We'll see :-)
Mini lovely hugs, Flora

La verdad es que estás creando una colección bárbara de miniaturas!! Todo se ve que está muy bién escogido. La cesta es preciosa, y las piezas de porcelana son una cucada!! Pero me han encantado las sillas, se ven lindísimas!! Un besote!!

I also collect items for my hut for years, but I still packed them for not collecting dust!
one day I will show everything already inside my house when it finally is over!
your collection is beautiful, I love especially the chairs and china!
I wait to see what comes out, inspires me a house in the countryside, between endless fields of lavender ... Provence, perhaps?
kisses, Caterina

Linda, Where did you get that amazing fence section? I am in love with everything in the photo but I have never seen anything like that!

I can't wait to see your new project come together... every time I click over to your blog and see a new post I get excited!

rosanna said...

Hi Linda, thank you for the welcome back home. I'm stil busy ironing and laundring and I have little time for playing. I love your collection, Margaret's Chinas are awesome but I truly fell for the chairs. I even love the green seat, a nice intrusion in your white/pastel pallette. Have a nice day, Rosanna

ShellbyFay said...

These items are beautiful! I can't wait to see your project come to life!

Catherine said...

It is all gorgeous!
I have to admit the first thing my eye gravitated to was the iron work fence. I LOVE that!!! It appears to have fleur-de-lis finials on it and such beautiful details!
I just bought a book on French iron work designs. I think it would be fun to do some in miniature.

kimsminiatures said...

oh oh oh wonderful things. I love collecting for my next projects. I have sever groupings still waiting to happen. LOl I can't wait to see what they are for :)
Yes I wish it was a toe instead of a finger. It has been impossible to do minis :( Getting better though. Hugs~ Kim

Maravillosa colección de piezas.
No se como será la casa que tienes pensada, pero para una de la Campiña francesa, irian perfectas.
Lo importante para un buen resultado es pensar bien la cosas y no correr.
Besitos, may

Wow, that's a breathtaking collection of miniatures! I'm sure your next project, no matter how long it takes, will be just as beautiful as the Petite Folie.
Mini hugs, Lucia

I understand what you mean. It's like with my seaside house, at the moment I am collecting things and I don't know how long it will take to complete it, at least to have the house. I don't know if I will buy a kit or make it myself...
