What I Need Is A Bowl Of Soup, Please..

Back to winter 2005, all those bread I made to fill up my dollhouse kitchen. I guess the maid was preparing dinner for lotsa guests.

I know what you think ... yeah I'm digging my old stuff here.. I'm happy that I can spare my time to see my old minis and "play" with. Is there any rule that 35 yo mum can't play dollhouse and the stuff?

My First Dollhouse

I have this dollhouse from long time ago... a gift from my husband. We opened ... then put back on the box. It's not that I did NOT appreciate him. It just I'am a full time mum of 2 daughters. And one of my daughters has terrible sick. I haven't ready to share attention to my dollhouse yet

The dollhouse keeps flat pack in its box.
Until last month.. My husband set the dollhouse in our lounge room. Hooray.....

I’ll show you around what is inside next time… basically I’ve done nothing for the interior. I’ll update the progress in this blog

Pat-a-cake, pat-a-cake, baker's man. Bake me a cake as fast as you can

When I'm baking for my family's tea time, I baked some for my (future) dollhouse too.... :)
I made that sliced orange on the cake above with caning technique. First-timer.
I have no guru to ask for, I'm not sure that the size is correct. Later I bought that fruity cake below to check wheter the size of slice is too big for 1" scale-cake , bought it from ebay. Well the size is slightly bigger and should be baked first before put together on the cake. New lesson for me I guess... Besides, I haven't have my own dollhouse at that time yet. ;)

How it started ...

One day we walked along the Sunday market, I was stunned with a miniature clay spring flowers on the pot. It's so tiny and cute that I can't stop staring at them. We bought about a dozen of them.. still not satisfied ... I looked for how those things were made. That's when the first time I knew about polymer clay or FIMO. And this is my first flower on the pot that I made out of fimo. It was about 5 years ago. Can you see the little dent there? That’s from the curious little fingers that always knows where I hide my little stuff. :)
