Hello every one, I would like to wish you all a very Happy Easter. As most of you are enjoying the growth of spring we are feeling the cool breeze of Autumn........my favourite season. I love the crisp mornings and sunny days, the leaf fall and the beautiful sunsets showing the softer tones of Autumn not the bright harsh colours of summer.
As eggs are symbolic of new life and Easter I thought I would share with you a familiar scene. I have borrowed from Mulvany and Rodgers and put a RL egg in my miniature Kitchen. This did happen by accident as I was making eggs ( in Fimo ) I used a RL egg as a guide. I popped it on the table as a reference then the image from their Colonial kitchen came to my mind and I thought I would have a play with it. LOL
I hope you like it. The eggs are of course made of fimo and speckled with a little pastel dust. I did make a rather horrible job of the little egg cup as it was a last minute idea.So any if any one knows who makes miniature egg cups I would love to hear. That is RL Thyme I saved from dinner the night before as I thought the tiny leaves would work quite well to add that splash of green.
These are images of the kitchen minus the giant egg! I took these early morning to capture the right light as I would like to have the feel of early morning eggs for breakfast. As I have said before, part of the enjoyment of the miniatures for me is setting the scene. So I do hope you enjoy eggs in the morning and in the last photo I have thrown in some ham as well. The Ham has a special reference for Mia and I but I will explain in my full reveal of the kitchen. I have left the rest of the kitchen a bit out of focus as it is not finished yet. It at least gives you al little glimpse of where I'm going with the Range hood etc... I have finally worked out a way to remove the hood to change the light bulb as I will be attaching a flue and I needed to be able to remove it without lifting it and I have come up with a rather ingenious idea. Pictures to follow in the next post.
Have a wonderful easter every one and happy Minis to you all.
