Hi and welcome to my blog. I hope you like my new look, I needed a change from black. Here you can share my miniature endeavours, perhaps be inspired by some of my photographs taken in France and of 'real world' treasures that can be made in miniature. My love of parterre-style gardens and study of horticulture made my decision for the theme of my little shop an easy one. I just hope I can successfully interpret my ideas in 1/12th scale!

I've Made My Bed ...






Welcome to any new followers and nice to see you all here. We are well into the New Year already, hope it will be a good one for all of us.
This is my latest pink bed made to order, at last I was able to retrieve the original design for the bed ends which is my favourite. This is a very pretty bed and has a bit of a French look about it I think. Would be lovely in an olde worlde bedroom, French or whatever. I can make more pink chests of drawers with mirror if anyone wants them also.
Need to catch up on blog postings, I am sure I've missed lots of goodies, my internet has been so slow it wasn't worth trying to do much, seems a bit faster now, can't wait until we get broadband connection.
I am about to get back to working on my little Greenleaf Orchid kit, I started making changes to the windows then came to a halt, unable to decide whether to change them completely or not. I think they will be a bit smaller than the originals but have to work out how to go about it as I've never done much building before. I might have some pics to show before too long. Then of course there is the dreaded **wiring**. Never done that before either, we'll see how I go.
That's all for now,
A bientot!

  5. Very pretty Margaret. I agree with your wiring comment - scary! I vow to finish the wiring in my Mountfield though, and then never be afraid of wiring again......

    1. Yes Ilona, I agree pink is not always appropriate but if you want a pretty, olde worlde look it can add warmth and a feminine touch.

  10. Your bed is beautiful. Oh to have a RL one! If only it were as easy! Wiring I think is a monster a lot of us are afraid of. I know I was. But it is a beastie easily wrangled!! Check twice and cut,glue etc once!!! xx

  14. That bed is absolute gorgeousness! The color is so soft. And if you hate wiring check out battery operated light bulbs. That's what I use. It's super simple. But you have so much talent. I have no doubt you will master wiring too. :)
    hugs♥,

  15. I don't know how I ever missed this posting of yours Margaret, but shame on Me! This pink bed is fit for a princess and you have dressed it like a fairy godmother would have. I LOVE IT! The pattern on the padded footboard, goes with the cushions that I won from your giveaway, last year too, sigh..... :D
    As to the wiring. My advise is to use the hard wire and not the tape. I have had more grief with the tape than I ever did with the hard wire. The only reservations is where to hide the wire as it runs trough the house. Along the baseboards is good and channels cut into the floor from room to room is another solution. Also underneath the underside of the main floor through the crawl space. It is not hard and it is really only scary before you begin but once you have it figured out, it is a piece of cake. Believe me, If I can do it, have no fear Margaret, you can too! :D

  16. Thanks Elizabeth, Yes that design on the bed is one I lost when the laptop died, but I finally found it again and adjusted it for my use. Thanks for the encouragement regarding the wiring, I know I just have to make a start. I have the wires etc, need a small chandelier or two, perhaps I should have another go at making them, some of the ready-made ones would be too big for these rooms. Another project for the to-do list, lol.
