Show and Tell Monday ~ 1:12 Miniature Wedding Gift Present

A few weeks ago while shopping during lunch time, I found a perfect gift box for my miniature table piece. The width and length was just nice. It was only $2.00. I bought it happily as I knew it would be the best way to display the 1:12 scale miniature gift.

I decided to use the flower arrangement for this piece. I like how it looks on the table.

Desserts inside the table. I love the white chocolate swirl on top of the raspberry mousse dessert. :) Which is your favourite?

Quick Update

Hi there, I didn't make it to my weekly post this week. The truth was, we must have caught the tail of the typhoon blowing in from north asia, and had 3 days of consecutive rains last Friday throughout the weekend. No strong winds, but it rained pretty much continuously. Hence, there was no sunlight for good photo opportunity. I skipped taking photos on Sunday...

I have been busy making some mini boxes to put in the mini macarons. I think they are cute. I also want to make some cake boxes to put in slice cakes. Besides the plates and doilies, they are a perfect way to display cakes.

Oh! I have also dosed the 1:12 Miniature Red Door with snow. But for some reason, I felt it wasn't enough. I'm going to put more snow on it. A part of me likes the clean look, so I must admit I was hesitant putting on that first layer of snow!

Show and Tell Monday ~ 1:12 Dollhouse Miniature Flower Arrangement

This week, I concentrated on 2 projects. The Red Door and the Dessert Table. I was striving to make something a little different. I made a tiny pot of flower arrangement, which I am very pleased with. It was meant to be used for the Dessert Table project, but I tried putting it into this scene and it looks great in this Red Door scene as well! I like how the flower arrangement makes the scene look so intricate.

Hmm I might consider making another pot for this even though it does take considerable amount of time.

The flower pot measures 1.4cm x 2.5cm(height).

Show and Tell Monday ~ 1:12 Miniature Red Door

Another week has passed by! This week, I am feeling a bit more well rested, hence I have been busy starting another new project, and also slowly working on another work in progress ~~

After some of the comments I received last week, I am tempted to try out a red door. And you know what, I might possibly attempt to do a whole loads of other colour doors too! Now, I love red, but red is a very bold colour. To attempt to try it takes a little bit of courage! What shade of red should I even choose?

I went to the craft store on Saturday, and after browsing through a whole row of red paint, I finally chose a Cardinal red. My initial choice was Holiday Red (from looking at the internet screen), but you can never buy a colour based on what you see on the computer screen. My gut feel told me to go for Cardinal red, and so I did.

Now, the project is still a way to go. I'm going to dose the door and frame with snow, so this red would work just fine. It will still stand out, but having the white snow on it would bring down the reddness. : )

Show and Tell Monday ~ 1:12 Dollhouse Miniature Pink Door Scene

I know this project has been cast aside for way too long, but I have finally completed it!!! I like that this piece is easy on the eye and not too complicated.

I like how the pretty red vase of flowers brighten up the white chair.

Now, I'm wondering what colour door do I want to do next? I want to attempt something a little different in the next piece.
