Let it snow??!

Someone must be singing that really hard over here, because the amount of snow is stunning!

We haven't had this much snow in a really long time! My doggie of 2 years is having a great time!

We've put up the tree a week ago and all over blogland people are sharing their way of celibrating. I think that's a lovely idea, so here is our christmastree: (picture is a bit blurry, sorry)

My miniature christmasscene I made last year.

And the funny burgers we ate last night. (we got them in a christmaspackage, that everyone over here gets from their employer) Now I really feel christmassy ;)

All the best wishes for your christmasdays and I wish you a fantastic 2010 filled with mini's and love!

Midsommer Murders

Last night I was watching my weekly episode of Midsommer Murders and I was pleasantly surprised to see a lot of miniatures!

So here a link to share it with you:

The location is a model village in Bekonscot, lovely!
The episode is called: Small Mercies

Gifts and decoration

Just look at this lovely present I got from my minimaking friend Annemieke for the Dutch 'Sinterklaas" celibration! She also made it as a swap that our dollhouseforum organized and at Josjes site you can read about her adventure with these tools. She also explains what Sinterklaas is about, so if you're curious....
Thank you so much Annemieke!

The decorations on the stairs I made from things I saw in magazines and advertising.
The little candles (waxinelichtjes) are sooo tiny, but very nice to make.

The doorhanger is made of wire and cottonyarn

And this couch hanger (1:1) is made of some old jeans. I made a hanger for remotecontrols and tvguides before (see
http://picasaweb.google.nl/lh/photo/bcYoG_gEEns6ULHeDkCdTw?feat=directlink) and my brother liked the idea. He asked me to make him one to. Very hard to come up with something for a guy who has a really distinct tast, but luckily he liked it. I ironed his logo on it (took it from his website) to personalize it.
So that was all I could finally show you, hope you liked it!

Finally I can show you what I've been up to lately. There were 2 presents I wanted to make for a really dear friend and my "little" brother. (He is younger, but waaaaay taller ;) )

My friend had a really darling birdcage she wanted to fill with miniatures. I thought it would make a nice birthdaygift, so started working on it. I worked on it untill I really had to leave to go and see her, so the quality of the photo's is bad..but I hope you can still see how it turned out.

Overall view with lots of light, darn flashlight lol

2 pigeons in the top part of the cage, I bought them in Rijswijk on a fair.

Corner with a little water ornament. In the bucket is a water lily and a goldfish (also bought in Rijswijk)

On the table her favourite cookmagazine, tea and a little candle.

There are tulips, lavender and a few plants in there. The fabric for the chair and the tablecloth are a gift from her to me, and she recognized it immediatly. I like these little surprises in gifts!

I hope to make some good pictures soon, but I couldn't wait any longer showing you this...
