At last!! The light was bright but not direct sun this afternoon so at last I had the right conditions for a photo shoot, and a working internet connection to share the results - yipee!
There are still some small details (including lighting) to complete but this is pretty much how la cuisine and la salle a manger will look when completely finished.
la salle à manger
These two rooms are full of wonderful gifts and purchases from fabulous friends in the miniature blogging world, specifically:
Apron - Frederica
Canisters, white jug and tiny whisk - Carrie Lavender
Floral plates in kitchen and dining - Carolyn
Colourful French jug (top shelf) - Ana
Tiny plant in yellow pot - Mercedes
Tray - Rosanna Rolla - sorry Rosanna for turning it upside-down and not noticing!
The retro style fridge is by Dolls House Emporium (I think no longer available). It was originally a pale peppermint green, my thanks to my son who spray painted it for me - who would have thought that Warhammer paints would be so useful for a French kitchen!. The badge is an old Frigidaire one found on the internet.
Basket - Lidi
Table - Mercedes
Cushion - Margaret
Cafe sign - Wanda
Vintage French postcards, mail and pretty box on the floor beside the table - Linda Carswell
Chair made by me but inspiration and pattern by Lea Frisoni
Many thanks to all of the above miniaturists for their special contribution to this project, and to miniature bloggers everywhere for your constant inspiration with special thanks to Lea Frisoni, the Queen of Miniature Shabby French.
