Dollhouse Miniature Vintage Kitchen Scale

Last week, I completed making this dollhouse miniature vintage kitchen scale in white color. This has always been one of my favourite kitchen appliances to make as they look realistic. Even though they do take some time, I do feel a great sense of achievement once I have it completed. They are surprisingly quite well popular too.


I plan to restock and make them in other colors too.


Making them shabby looking and vintage looking is just a preference of mine. :)



I hope everyone is having a great weekend! :)

New home and renovations (Part 1)

I've been busy with packing (slowly), donating away things that we don't use, or just throwing out things that are just not usable anymore. There's so much to do each day. I thought it would be fun to take some pictures along the way while the new home is undergoing renovations. Last week, hacking of tiles began. Then they had to lay cement, and water-proof the bathrooms before they can start any tiling.

The living room

As you can see the floor tiles have been hacked off and that piece of wall tile still exists because they are simply going to plaster directly over it. That saves hacking costs.


Another view of the living room leading to 2 bedrooms.


This was the master bathroom and everything's been hacked off.


This is the common toilet in the kitchen, but it's a bit too dark to show up.


One side of the kitchen wall. This side of the wall will be where we will put the washing machine and dryer.


Rather spacious kitchen, I must say! On the left side will be where the fridge, oven and kitchen cabinets are placed.

And today, I went in to take a look. The cement laying is ongoing. That's why it looks a bit dark.


And they started laying wall tiles for the common toilet!


That's all for now! Hopefully more progress pics in another week's time!

Great day for Photography and a Moving SALE!

Last Sunday, I had some time to take proper photos of my work. Immediately I thought of using my Dollhouse Miniature Buffet Kitchen Table to prop some simple stuff.


It helps greatly when the weather was cooperating! Everything is bright!


I think the dollhouse miniature teal cupcakes here are presented well on the table. Along with a bouquet of sweet flowers.


I'm pleased with the photographs. :) 


Have I mentioned that besides my caregiving duties, I'm also tied up with packing, helping my mom to declutter, organize her stuff because...We are moving! Hopefully in 2 months time!

Currently, I've just engaged a renovation contractor to do up my place, so that will take a bit of time. It isn't a brand new place, so the wear and tear was very obvious, and renovations had to be done before we can move in. 

You can imagine the amount of things I have to do...I'm trying my best to also allocate some time to pack and sort my stuff, and it's tough. To be honest, I haven't moved in more than 30 over years. I thought I will be sad, but I think I'm mostly too exhausted to feel that. Can anyone who is an "expert" in moving, share any tips? I don't know if "expert" is the right word even, but I guess anyone who has been moving quite a bit in their lifetime. I'd love to hear from you. Anything from dealing with the move emotionally, downsizing, decluttering, anything. My friend has given me some good pointers. He said, if I haven't used something in two years, most likely I won't be using it ever and I can toss/donate/give it away. That was a good one.
