1:6 Playscale Mixers

Ok, so I finally worked up the nerve to paint these little cuties.  I just had to have one in Pale Pink & Aqua Blue.  These little mixers look so much like the real-life KitchenAid Mixers and I am absolutely in-Love with them.  They were made in the 1990's and are extremely difficult to find anymore.

I made alot of customizations to them.  They were painted, and then glossed.
I adjusted the bowl so that it is removable, this way the paddle can be showcased too.
All the black knobs and really tiny screws were added and then I installed the cords with silver-tipped plugs at the end.
The tiny screws are from an old broken laptop I took apart just for the  
The thin white cords and plugs were from new ear-piece speakers I took apart, and all the little realistic pins and levers were from pieces in my sewing and tool kit.

1:6 Playscale Baking Hutch

I made this wonderful Baking Hutch and Table in 1:6 Playscale Size, along with some other items.
It's the perfect piece of furniture to display my 1:6 Mixer Collection, Cookbooks, and other baking essentials.
The Patterned Paper Flowers I made this morning to complete this sweet little table display.

French Farmhouse & Cottage Minis

HaPPy New Year Everyone!  I hope you all had a wonderful Holiday!
I have been busily working on some new miniatures with a French Farmhouse / Cottage theme and am so happy to have completed a wonderful little set.

I have wanted to try my hand at making some miniatures with waterslide decal transfers but was a little hesitant because of the abundance of them on Etsy these days... ;o) 

So I really needed to find some inspiration for something a little different from everyone else so that I would have something unique to offer mini collectors.  I found some really wonderful Vintage French Plates that I absolutely would just LoVe to own in real-life... and just knew they would be the perfect thing to create in miniature.  

Here are a few pictures... I hope you like them :o)
