1:12 Scale White Anemore Flowers

Hi everyone! I've fallen behind blogging a little bit, but I've just been busy creating new flowers, experimenting and all.

My latest creation has a new flower type which I'm really loving. I did not know what this flower is called when I saw it first on pinterest.

Look how beautiful this real life bouquet is!

I was mesmerized by the dark blue centered flowers, and really wanted to do more research on it.
I finally found out they were called white anemore flowers and so my latest creation include some of these beautiful flowers.

What do you think?

Another white and blue flowers arrangement

Here's my second bouquet of white and blue flowers arrangement in 1:12 dollhouse miniature scale. This was sold within a few hours. I actually made a third one as well, requested by another customer who wanted it.

Each bouquet, though with the same color concept is never really the same. I am thankful my customers who request for handmade flowers understand that it's not possible to make the same exact one each time.

Believe it or not, I'm starting to make my fourth bouquet today. I think this particular color scheme is just so peaceful and serene.

Who knows how my fourth bouquet will turn out? I may put in some different's always exciting!

Happy weekend all!

Newly improved dollhouse miniature english roses

This week, I felt incredibly productive :) In between some customized work, I could still work on some newly improved version of english roses and am loving it!

I quickly made this into a bouquet, which is filled with a few variety of english roses. I am currently into this soft lavender colour scheme, which is so pleasing to the eye.

Presented in a hand woven basket, I hope you love this!

Dollhouse Accessories - French Style Wrought Iron Grill Door

The french style wrought iron grill door in dollhouse miniature scale is by far, definitely the most challenging things to make. There is quite a bit of technical things to study on the subject of soldering itself, materials to use and while in the process of making, there is definitely going to be a learning curve. Time wise, it's also definitely more time consuming. Soldering alone may have taken me an hour. You do really need to have good eyesight to see all the joints and a steady hand to accurately touch on those joints.

Local craft shops also don't really carry the proper full range of materials needed, so some items have to be sourced online.

But, challenges and hard work aside, I've always been fascinated with the french style wrought iron grills, that are commonly found and seen in foreign antique flea markets. Very old pieces are refurbished and sold as home decor pieces. I find them adoring.

I figured this would also be something nice to be placed and decorated in dollhouses!

I'm excited with the many ideas and possibilities that one can make with wrought iron grills, so I hope I can expand more on the ideas.

I'm definitely still learning and enjoying the process. I'll be sure to post more photos when I've made new pieces!
