Piglet House





So this is an illustration I found of Piglets house in my new Winnie the Pooh book!

I never knew his house existed in pictures but now I have one!

So I see some new things that can be incorporated into Pooh house.

What do you guys spot here?

Since for one half of this upstairs room I have no illustration reference I'm kinda doing it my way with the stove, sink and shelves. I'm also going to hang copper molds on the wood wall which is ideal since the pins can be placed in the gaps between the boards without leaving a significant mark.
Also with the English foods above, I heard mention that Winnie the Pooh's house was very British, I'm not sure if I've captured that but I do know I wanted some British foods anyhow.
This incredible collection of auctions went up on eBay and I got all 5 things from the same seller.
Cornish Pasties, Scone and Butter, Custard Tart, Jam Sponge Cake and a unique bun baking tray by Warwick miniatures. I love them all!! And they all ended for about $2.50 each.
Though I love nothing as well as my Debs buttered toast and Ara's chair and hunny hutch for me. Those are true love ;)

Chocolate Bars for Winnie the Pooh

These chocolate bars were made by Pei Li at Miniature Patisserie.

I wanted chocolate because Pooh Bear mentions milk and chocolate in the Up Down Touch the Ground song. I also spotted a jar labled chocolate in a honey cupboard illustration.

And this is a milk can I'm going to try and make.

Heres the ceiling paper for Owls. I just have to put in the door and this room is done.

Got the ceiling paper done in these rooms! They are pretty much done now. (((sigh))) :)

Oh I got those silly copper pots but what I really wanted was the aged cookware for a pretty penny like these. I'm going to get a few pieces. I really want the au gratin pan and stock pot. Oh and the plates and rectangle pan shown here. Does anyone like the bowl?

Kitchen Shelves Done!






Gee thanks Rosanna, the wood wall looked fine how it was and I'm so glad you said something, because I kept it as is and now it looks really good to me!

So I finally did the shelves. Does it look like a house in a tree?

Attic Fireplace



Well here's my upstairs fireplace. I think it looks good. I like the boldness of the green. It's turquoise! Does it remind anyone else of Paris 1908? Like it looks like something you'd find in a run down apartment near the Moulin Rouge. What is that style called? I guess it's not a style so much as a look.
Well it also looks playful and I think it goes with Owls upstairs parlor just fine.

Pooh bear worthy pottery :D



Oh my goodness! My favorite miniture artisan Eileen Vernon has agreed to make me 3 personalized honey pots! Wow, and to think I've been looking on ebay for one to show up and she was right there all along, contactable and able to make them for me. And she only wants $13 a piece! she says she'll be busy until July but I don't mind the wait. And we'll all have to wait and see what she comes up with!

Phew, Im exhuasted. That kitchen wall has a scratch in it, should I wear the whole wall down or stain it darker in those areas? Also my ceiling paint doesn't match and I'm hesitant to paint those side walls. I guess if I cover and tape well it will be okay. These pictures make the house look more like a house than the illustrations but that's what you get at 2am after constucting for hours.
Owls is looking very English. I'm still going to do shelves in the kitchen.
By the way I won the contest below, but it was just me and another participant. I wonder if I'd have won if several others had entered? Well it was fun to make.
