I have been collecting all the ‘leftovers’ from my minihome since I started creating it three years ago. Every time furnitures are replaced in my real home, they have to leave the minihome too. It has been adding up to quite a few homeless miniature-things.
When we were visiting my parents at Samsø recently I found an old doll house at a flea marked. It’s now in our bookshelf homing all the necklaced furnitures I had lying around.
Really it’s a great thing that I have a baby girl you know; it takes the edge of the grown-up-woman-playing-with-toys-wackiness I have going on here…
Hi everyone :)
My gosh I have great blog-readers. Makes me so happy to read through your sweet comments. Thanks for all your well wishes.Vilja feels much better now but she is still tired and a bit cranky.
I’m happy to inform you that Gitte won the competition -all because of you -I’m sure! Isn’t that great?
Today is one of those days where I would much rather crawl into my mini world…
I’m needed there too -the mini living-room definitely has to become more baby friendly don’t you agree?
Your comments make me smile. Thank you!
Making a mini-miniature for the doll house and looking forward to a night out. Have a great Saturday all. -b
My mini-home was photographed yesterday. You have to wait in patience to see what for…
Anders late grandfather painted this chest many years ago. I made a miniature of it a little while ago.
I’d wish he was here to see it.
Anders has been away from home for a few days and Vilja has not been sleeping much, -neither have I. But today my in laws came by with dinner and took over for a while. I had a nap a meal and a break and Vilja had a shower and lots of fun. Now she is sleeping like an angel and I have had an evening with time to take a look at the good old minihome. Lucky me. Lovely lovely Sunday.
Many of the furnitures in my mini-home are made of cardboard -old shoe boxes and stuff like that. Here are some of them under construction.
Had a few hours of ‘me-time’ today. I spend it with coffee and miniature stuff.
Sofa is all done. New sofa table nearly done. Computer and television in progress… Next job: diaper changing station.
I don’t think I ever showed you this wall in our dining room? -I made the miniature version a few days before Vilja was born.
First thing in the mini-home that needs replacement is the sofa. When I was pregnant I became aware of how bad it was to sit in. For a few weeks we pushed it aside and placed a big mattress on the floor. Then the day before Vilja was born we bought a new much bigger and softer couch that I practically live in it these days. Sadly this mini-leather-version gotta go.
As most of you know my miniature home has been pushed aside by my this miniature-person lately. It has been standing on top of a closet for quite a while now and when I took it down today I realized that I have changed A LOT of stuff in our home since the last time I worked on it. Most of the furnitures has been removed or replaced and quite a few baby-items like a nursing-table, a rocking horse and a tiny bench has sneaked inhere meanwhile. Now I have this sudden urge to empty the house completely and start all over -just for the fun of it!
And now to the mystery box from yesterday. As I said it was from Poland and more specifically it was from a fellow blogger of mine ‘Aga Plieth’. Imagine how surprised I was when I opened this present? ‘Aga Plieth’ made me a perfect miniature-copy of Vilja’s yellow crib.
I had such a busy day yesterday that I only had time to open it right before I went to bed and I became so excited about this gesture that I almost couldt’n fall asleep afterwords.
Thank you so much ‘Aga Plieth‘ your present blew me away.
And just to keep you guys tuned; this was not the only thing in the surprise package, I’ll show you more soon.
I have seriously neglected my mini-home lately and I’m drowning in things that has to be re-placed or re-done down there…
This baby in my belly is already making it harder for me to get things done. -Both because I’m really tired most of the time, but also because I’m slowly starting to rearrange our real-live-home and make it more baby-friendly. I’m tidying up closets and shelf’s to make more room for all the baby-stuff that has already begun to sneak in here.
Anyway our home looks different than usual and it’s probably going to continue to change for a while forward so my motivation towards the mini-home has left me for a while. Hopefully it’ll be back again soon…
The miniature-blackboard-wall is new. I think you’ve seen the rest before.
I did some unintentional moving around the furnitures (real life! -not mini-world) again last Weekend -I never plan to do so, but it seems to happen pretty often anyway :) -All I intended to do was move a single painting or something like that -then the next thing I know everything around it looks a bit wrong and of course I have to move that to.
Anders usually comes home laughing and shaking his head at all these silly projects I’ve got going. -Unfortunately now I have to ask him for help, after being pregnant and therefore not allowed to lift heavy furniture…
Anyway, the point is; I have new work to do in the miniature home.
Happy Thursday everyone!
