New Shelf for my Sweets

I filled the shelf with some handmade sweets. Just to get a first impression. I could not wait to do so. Also I know that I have to take it out again to continue crafting.

Unfortunately the display I usually wanted to place in was much too big. It did not look right to me. So I decided to look for something else. I found this blanc shelf. With PVC glas on the front and sides, but not on the back.
I wanted to have a open shelf, because it would stand infront of a wall and cakes should be placed in and easily beeing taken out by the waiters. So I dissembled it to reassemble it turned front to back. Finally I made a wooden "crown" to have the same style as the other furnitures.
 I started to stain it nut brown. That is the first tapping.
 I repeated it twice.
 Painted some white and finished it with gloss varnish.

I also worked on the fireplace. I added some wooden ornaments above. Something  is still missing. I quess I will palce a oil picture in the middle. Some landscape maybe. Let's see what kind of muse I find and what I will paint. Till now I have no concrete idea. The sireplace's inside is still unfinished. I want to add some wood and such a red flicker light. Also it looks quite used already.

Had some Holiday to spend for the Confectionary

During sommer time it's hard to motivate myself for miniaturing. But this time, I don't know why, in the middle of the summer, during some very hot days, I was damn excited.
It's still not finished, but it starts to look like a real room in a house.

My first Chimney made of Wood

I had to do something else. Always working on the outside of the house is getting boring. So for in between I worked on a chimney. It is my first one.

I assembled the chimney out of different wood pieces, taped them together and did a little fitting test in the room that is supposed to become a confectionery.
Here it is glued. The top piece I had to carve to round the edges. I've never done carving before. I love it! I really do. If you do have the right sort of wood, it's a real pleasure to shape it. I quess in future times I am going to do more wood work.
Out of my enthusiasm I tried a tiny blossom.
And it worked out!
I wanted more ;)
And that's it unvarnished.
Stained walnuts. Like the rest of the furnitures for this room. the furnitures I have done a long time ago. I guess it was in 2010. I brought some unfinished very cheap furnitures from Euro Minis. That doesn't exist anymore. And well, I pimped them a bit. ;)

Dovecote Completed

This is the final dovecote. I had huge problems with the pitch of the roof. I cutted everything twice untill it fitted. The inner of the cote is still empty. I will design it together with the kitchen attached.

The roof still has to be fixed. I wanted the dovecote to be opened, to look in. So I added some hinges on the left side. But to open it I had to cut a piece of the roof. It doesn't look good right now. So the fixes are comming soon.

Dovecote

I don't know why, but I always find something to change on the house. This time it's the roof of one bay. I looked at a picture of my house and the idee blew into my mind to create a much higher roof like a tower. And suddenly the idee of a dovecote was born. And so I started ...
It can be entered through the kitchen underneath.

Emblem

These days I painted the emblems on both sides of the house. In denletzten Tagen habe ich Wappen auf beiden Seiten des Hauses gemalt.
