The Sewing room!

Finally I found the inspiration I´v been looking for; Lea´s book of course! The room vas dull and hard to decorate, much to do with the bedroom wallpaper! It´s not easy to find something to match it. I like it when two room´s don´t collide in style or color. Originally I wanted the small fireplace in the bedroom, but came up with that idea too late!! So when looking through the book for the 100 time...ah ha...that´s what I´ll do; make new walls on cardboard, and the fireplace of course! It was so easy and fun to do. But I have only made the wall you see in the picture. Now I have to do the rest of the room...not so fun, but I must!!! The poor french woman has no hair
(I am going to make her a wig, eventually!) and no clothes, except what she´s wearing. No wonder she´s sewing!!
I would like you to give me an idea of a french name that suites her. The wig will be dark, maybe long hair..... and the time period is now! Just look at her washer!!

The sewing room is wonderfull and I love the fire place with the decorations! The dress is also a master piece...did you sew it?

What a nice room. I just love the fireplace hopefully I will be able to make such when I start with my own house. I just made panels myself but the panels you have in your room has a bit more vintage style than mine. I painted mine with gesso how did you paint ours ?

Ett underbart rum - jag håller

Hei Janne, ja kom gjerne på besøk :D

Sabiha: Oh no...I can not make such a lovely dress!
I bought it at the Kensington DF, sorry to say I don´t remember who!

Reiko: I just painted everything in regular white paint and then after it dried, I painted it with a light brown/yellow mixture of paint.... but I would really like to try gesso. Unfortunately I can´t get that here, have to go to the big city to get it!!
Eva; Jeg liker navnet..

Mercedes; I have spent every free moment at her blog for the last 3 years...to get the book was just wonderful! And I met her at the Paris fair in 08.
She´s a lovely and very french person! It was so fun, I gave her one of my magazines, and she has a post on it at her blog!!!

Hej igen Synnöve - får jag fråga
en sak som jag länge undrat över -
gesso - vet du vad svenska motsvarigheten heter? har letat och letat men hittar ingen info.
Är det någon typ av gipsfärg?

I spotted rightly! the little dress is lovely and the room is oh so lovely. I'd like a place like this. Seemingly Lea's book has become a bible for miniaturist, and she truly is a charming Lady. Mini hugs

Beautiful fireplace and wallpaper! I was convinced the lady had just washed her hair before she started sewing.

Good morning! I just found your beautiful blog today. I've read all of your posts! I love your floors!
They are so pretty! I'm hoping to make some nice floors for my dollhouse someday. I love the painted ones especially!
Thanks for sharing your wonderful miniatures!
