Waiting for the mail...

I bought these things on tradera last week and waiting for them to plump down in the mailbox at any time. I'm so happy because I really wanted to make a copy of my self-designed lamp, though in miniature, so now I have finally found a cheap lundby lamp that I should re do =) This is what the original is looking like:

I had intended to use a Styrolit ball, but I wanted to be able to light it, so I waited until I found a cheap lundby lamp on tradera.
I "Happened" to bid on the stove and sink too =) I only have a mini kitchen that is red, but it wouldnt look good if I painted it, so now when I found a white, so I can finally make the kitchen the way I want it. Now I am waiting for things to come, then Im going to decorate more in my dollhouse that I'm doing right now.
More pictures coming soon!

My livingroom 1:1 and 1:12

This is one part of my real livingroom. I have made everything myself.
The Tv is a picture from internet that I have scaled to the right size.
The plant is made of grape twigs (is that the right word for it??) that I have glued painted paper on to. It´s ok but I could have made more of an efford on the plant to make it more like the original.
The photos is photographed when they were up on the shelf and then changed in photoshop, then I printed the small pictures and glued them on cardboard and painted black on the back and sides.
The shelf is made of two ice cream sticks I glued together in the center.

Fotona har jag fotat när dom var uppe på hyllan och sen ändrat i photoshop, sen har jag skrivit ut dom små bilderna och klistrat fast dom på kartong och målat svart på baksidan och på sidorna.
Here you see it in full scale and miniature =) Its sooo fun to see everything become so small!

The pictures is first without lighting from the camera, and then with. It´s so dark in my apartment right now so the colors didn´t came out right.

Miniature- swap

I'm so excited! I have started a miniature swap on a Facebook group. I'm still fairly new with making miniatures, but have seen that others have done swaps, so I thought it would be a really fun thing to do. So I looked at the others who had made swaps and saw how you could do. So now anyone who wants can sign up for the swap, and the application deadline is on Wednesday (the 3rd of October). Then you get to know who you should send to. It will be really fun!
