My Treasures, My Presents

I have been thinking to make the post and share some very nice miniatures that I have received from the friends of blogland . The most important thing for me is the good will and kindness. :)
Goldfish in a Glass Bowl
Carol found it in Chicago and delivered directly from the show. She is a very nice friend and knows well I love very much Japanese artisans’ creations. :) I was so touched when receiving her parcel. I will find a good place and well set it up in the beautiful scene of my miniatures. :P
Glass Bottles
I was very lucky to win the bottles from Pepper,  Mitchy Moo Miniatures! I read very often the techniques and know-how she shares with us in her blog. I find the tips so helpful for my project. Thanks so much, Pepper!! :D

Wash-basin Table
This was a big surprise when I met Marie-Laure in SIMP in Jun! I saw it on her table when we started to settle the stands. It was so fine and delicate, I decided to buy it but Marie-Laure gave me as a gift. I was so spoiled!!! Merci, bisous!!!
Moses Basket
I am a loyal fan of Lidi! Every time when I received her parcels, I could not help but praise the craftsmanship!! When I saw the Moses basket on her blog after I came back from Paris, I fell in love with it. It's so gorgeous! At that moment I thought I had a bb girl and the color was so perfect!! I definitely treasure it. :) Love to you, Lidi!!

The cake stands shown on the last pictures are made by me, inspired by a lady whom I met in the workshop of SIMP. They are parts of the accessories of the project "Au Rêve Gourmand" too.
Have a great weekend! :-)


Au Rêve Gourmand

It’s been a long time I don’t update the status and say hello to the friends of blogland. How are you doing? :)
I have been quite depressed since the 2nd August; once I thought I might die in France. It was horrible to get a fever of 12 days without stopping and it’s suffering to catch acute bronchitis.  I did not sleep in the night during the first two weeks; especially it was not possible to lie down on the bed due to the breathing problem.
Fortunately, I am recovering and feeling better now.  I have smelt the autumn and felt great the cooler weather is coming!
I have been working for a project from mid-July because I wanted to build my first dollhouse; I was planning to build a light food restaurant and it’s called “Au Rêve Gourmand”. Just it’s stopped during the period that I was sick. I expect to be back to the project soon!
Another good news is we are waiting for a little bird now. It was a surprise but we appreciate much that a baby boy will join our family. I know I might not create as much as before but I still want to fly in the world of miniatures before his arrival. :o)


Thank you and the winner is...

Fun & cool! Scribble Too

I found « Scribble Too » on Stéphanie’s blog!
It’s so fun and easy to make your own illustration :D
Though the girl does not look like me, she reflects parts of my inner side.
Have fun!


Kitchen waste? No!! :)

I was stressed before leaving for Paris; no matter how much efforts I tried, I always thought that my stand did not look right. At that moment, I was not willing to take pictures of each individual piece.

J'étais stressé avant d’aller à Paris; malgré les efforts que j'ai essayés de faire, j'ai toujours été insatisfaite de mon stand. À ce moment-là, je n'étais pas envie de prendre quelques photos de chaque pièce.

After three-day rest, I took out the rest works from the luggage and took some pictures of them. Though they were not totally sold out in the show, they are still lovely in my eyes. :)
Après trois jours de repos, je prends les pièces qui sont restés dans les bagages et j’ai pris quelques photos d'eux. Bien qu'ils n’aient pas été totalement vendus dans le salon, ils sont encore mignons à mes yeux. :)
