Thanks Sandy for posting about Karina including her story in the New York Times - it's definately worth taking the time to read it - it's guaranteed to lift your spirits. You can access it online here.
I'm not sure if I should describe miniatures as a hobby or an obsession, but it's the best escape from the cares of the world that I know - and an opportunity to indulge a love of vintage decor without breaking the bank.
The cupboard doors are beautiful! I'm in the process of trying to make paint peel... Soaked a pair of shutters in water today, and nothing!? Lol... I'll keep trying and let you know if I ever figure it out:)
What is it about those gorgeous chalky colours that is so satisfying - always a pleasure and a kindness to the eye.
Love the pictures! It's gorgeous!
It's strange to think that mankind flees from aging as the plague and then is attracted to things that have a long history and show signs ...
However, I am sure that your patina will be excellent :-)
Mini hugs, Flora
There is just something about those lovely subdued neutrals, left to natures art, thatinexplicably draws the eye in ... I have no doubts that you'll be able to achieve the look your after. Beautiful, beautiful!
....Thank-you for stopping by and leaving such wonderful tips! I'll have to try it on the next set of birdhouse I make! Thanks so much! :)
Of course you can, Norma ! :)
Very Beautiful, Norma.... I have NO experience with the artificial aging processes.... only the real one LOL! A lot of banging and scraping and dirtying would be my guess.....! I'm looking forward to seeing more of this Brocante, it is so lovely thus far!
That cupbooard is beautiful.
I've fallen behind with my blog reading, and only today broused through your blog for the last several months. I love the work you've been doing, it's terrific! You are very talented. I'm sure you can mimic the cupboard and desk. I love the Brocante store front! Wow! I'm anxious to see more!
I think, better said, I'm sure that you can make in 1:12 the same! These pictures are a great inspiration! hugs
Thank you Norma for the kind words you left on my blog, makes me feel much better! The Brocante is going to be beautiful if these photos are anything to go be. I love the soft subdued tones - so relaxing, so continental and so eternal. Gorgeous. Carol :)
Can't wait to see your recreation of them :)
I so want to live there.
Re: Karina, yes, perhaps!
-And there is no question about it. Of course you can!
I love your miniatures and your link to Katrina's story. Thanks for your advice regarding my ad dilemma.
Norma, I love that cupboard so much. I especially love that its aged state is in contrast to the chandelier. I have added that site to my favourites. I am now on my way back there to add a comment to all these photos of what I consider the most peaceful chateau I have ever seen. Peaceful because of the starkness of its decor.
Wow...what you do is so whimsical and special. I also love the below image of the blue cupboards in standard human size. Lou Lou xo
Just so rustic looking, I love it.
Happy Easter Norma!
Happy Easter dear Norma!
Pretty nice post. I just stumbled upon your blog and wanted to say that I have really enjoyed browsing your blog posts. In any case I’ll be subscribing to your feed and I hope you write again soon!
Thanks AGAIN, dear Norma, for all the inspiration you give!!!!!
I love your shabby chic treatments and am being inspired by your inspirations vbg! I will be very interested to see how you interpret these finishes in your items.
Hi Norma, hope you survived Easter.
Have you seen this website in the UK, I was cruising round for the meaning of cariad (i knew roughly)and found this site.
I think I might try and use my crafty skills to make things in miniture but I'm hopeless with scale.
How long and how wide would a embroidered table runner for A)dining table, breakfast table, coffee table need to be roughly for the size that you do.
I'm following you now :)
Great photo's.. I feel like I'm in the shop!!!
