Show and Tell ~ 1:12 Scale Dollhouse Miniature Shabby Chic Framed Applique Decor

Last week, I took a break from making patisseries and experimented making some dollhouse miniature framed applique decor. I am not sure if you experienced the same thing as me, but I find a lack of quality shabby chic decorations around to decorate my pieces. I do admit that sometimes I have very precise ideas of how I want it to be like, what colour it should be in etc. I like white a lot these days. I like how clean and simple it looks. So, I ended up trying to make my own shabby chic decorations.

A white applique decor, which I made it, and glued it to the dis-stressed frame I made myself too. I like how clean and detailed it looks!

This looks extremely good on the wall, just on the shelf or kitchen counter. Your eyes will be immediately drawn to its details.

I aim to make them in various colours too.

It measures only 2.5cm by 2.5cm

1:12 Scale Deep Fried Breaded Chicken Thigh

Due to my recent classes on Saturday, I'm always in a rush for lunch. My class starts at 1pm. I usually have a light breakfast early in the morning, finish some chores and rush out to have lunch and then go for classes. A couple of times, I was terribly hungry, and had a craving for deep fried chicken chop. I passed by this Japanese restaurant, that serves pretty reasonable lunch set. I remembered their deep fried chicken was sooo good. Hence I was very inspired to make this.

A large serving of greens by the side, with lettuce, cucumber, tomato and a slice of hard boil egg. I like my dressing by the side, so I added some thousand island salad sauce by the side.

Plus, a slice of lemon so that you can squeeze it right on top of the chicken top!

Show and Tell Monday ~ 1:12 Scale Dollhouse Miniature Gingerbread House

I was thinking about what miniature art piece I wanted to create this christmas. I had various ideas and I even have something started midway but stopped halfway. Haha.

I have never eaten a gingerbread house before, but I'm sure I saw some in real life which I can't recall how it looks like right now. They are usually darker brown in colour, due to the use of raw sugar, and they are also often decorated with lots of candies and chocolates which the kids love. I wanted to create something a little different, maybe something that appeals to the adults and ladies who have the similar taste as myself.

I imagine one with lots of different types of patisserie. I'm not really a candy person in real life, but I really like pastries, cakes etc. So my idea was to incorporate such into my dollhouse miniature gingerbread house.

When I started my miniature gingerbread house base, I knew I would want a lighter colour base. Flaky, lightly baked crust would be my choice - with powder sugar sprinkled on it too! The door reminds me of my favourite childhood snack - sugar on the top biscuit! The little so-called attic window was made of a donut with partial filled strawberry jam. The windows on the side were made of strawberry jam biscuits.

The roofs were first drenched in chocolate sauce, and followed by profiteroles in assorted flavours. To top if off, I decorated it with fluffy airy white mini meringues.

Tiny bushes by the side, sprinkled with snow and berries really brings out the christmas flavour of this piece.

I'll leave you to your imagination, on where you want to start savoring this piece if this was a real gingerbread house. For me, it's a toss between polishing the profiteroles off one by one, or just the sugar on the top biscuit door!

It's now available at my etsy shop :

Show and Tell Monday ~ 1:12 scale dollhouse miniature shabby chic standing shelf

Earlier this morning, I put together some dollhouse miniature kitchen accessories to decorate the shabby chic standing shelf I made earlier a while ago - to demonstrate how versatile the piece can be. And if you're truly looking for a shabby chic feel/style dollhouse miniature piece, this might be what you would like.

I like keeping the colours simple, clean and how the entire look is soothing to the eyes. That green is my favourite! I hope I have inspired you some great decoration ideas for your dollhouse kitchen.
