The new year begins....

and so the new year begins... This song from the movie Sense and Sensibility has made me comtemplate what the new year has in store. Please listen to the music as you scroll down...



And as I watch the rain pour down outside my windows this morning..it sets a mood of what's next?


My creativity is demanding more than just dolls, and dollhouse miniatures. So I want to stretch my wings and fly to untrod fields of new techniques , other artistic avenues...just to do something different, for a challenge, to see what I can do, and accomplish...


I am currently working on some new techniques for the doll foods, and made these wonderful 1:3, 1:4 and 1:6 scale St. Honore pastries. The dolls are enjoying them!






 I expanded into the larger scales as this is a part of my 1:6 scale Chateau project with my custom Louis and Marie Antoinette and their family. My inspiration was the Kirsten Dunst movie Marie Antoinette from 2006, I loved the contrast of color, costume and sets in that movie.
I still have alot of work to do on Louis' outfit as well as creating the Dauphin's outfit. 














The table holds a 1:3 St. Honore on the cake stand, and Marie Antoinette holds a 1:6 in this last picture. I could not resist replicating the picture of the little dog on the fauteuil sofa eating the pastry so I used Mops. The pink ones are some of my best, I think, those raspberries were so time consuming but fun to create! More will be forthcoming on this project soon.
