I've been working on my house and it doesn't show much because it's all construction.
Like the windows on the sides and the front door I started on. This is how it looks like now:

The side opens up in the middle and a big part of the roof will be hinged too, so there will be good access. There will be 2 dormers on both sides too.

But between sawing, sanding and painting I really like to do something different, so here are some other creations:

A little embroidery kit from Atelier de Ooievaar I've bought at a fair and changed a little.

And I'm trying to weave a little blanket or rug, but it's difficult! I'll keep trying...:)

Last but nog least I've been rewarded by Maria with the Kreativ Blogger award and by Michelle with the Sunshine award. Thank you so much ladies!! Tomorrow I'll post about it and pass these compliments to other bloggers.

groetjes and see you!



It's been a while since my last post, so I've got lots to show you!

But first a warm welcome to all the new followers. I can't believe how many new blogs I'm gonna follow, pff better quit eating and sleeping Lol...

Lara at Just want to live in the beach house she’s made! And there are different houses to be finished so much more goodies to come.

Christel at She doesn’t need an introduction does she? Her lovely miniature food is known worldwide and o my, her cupcakes and hutches are beautiful!

Ana at So much beautiful mini's to see, I just can't describe it, see for yourself. And that cake (with recipe) looks delicious!!

Synnøve at Her mini-house is stunning. If you see the photo's you'll really doubt if it's miniature or for real!

Sonya at is making a (if I understand correctly) bread and spice shop and it looks great!! I also saw she’s into country painting, lovely!

Jody at She has different blogs, because she’s very multi-talented. (how does she make so much pretty stuff in so little time?!) So have a look for yourself.

Long for spring

Everywhere in Blogland you see people long for spring. I also wish spring would start yesterday ;). Today I want to show you the carnation embroidery I finished.

On the background you see the color I picked for the master bedroom on the first floor. I plan to hang the carnation and other flowers on this wall.

When I was grocery shopping yesterday I came across these......carnations!!
Of course I couldn't resist them, so here you can see the colors I love for my house:

Grey's, green, wood and a little accent colour like pink.

Have a nice day!

On behalf of my doggie and me!
It's about time I welcomed you here, because 9 new followers have arrived.

Starting with Miniaturemaid and Cheryl. I can't find links, but I now Blogger has problems sometimes, so if you do have a site/blog let me know, welcome!

Marit at She's very good in working with wood. I really like the tool she bought for it! Oh, and I had to keep Benz away from the screen, she didn't like the black cat. Think it's because she's so small, some cats are bigger then her! ;)

Michelle at She's building a house in brocante style and I can't stop drewling over the nice pictures!

At you can see some very good results for workshops. I really like the attic you've made! And MiniLisa is also in the proces of renovating a house (1:1) I'm very curious, 'cause it looks really cozy!

Sylvia at has a very lovely house called Villa Natalia. Have a look at all the details and beautiful stuff!

Bogna has 4 different blogs, but I'll give you one link: Those dolls look beautiful and I wish I could design the patterns like she does. Very good crocheting.
and Meli at (thanks for adding your site) I've just started following you too and love your work!

Ingrid also added her site: it's . I really love the style and colours and also the houses she made for the ceramist and tailor.

Now I'm off taking some pictures for an update. See you!
