Food Ring - French Toast

This food ring wasn't in my list of to-do....but just the other day, I was in an experimental mood. I was itching to try something different, failing and learning something new in the process. And that day, I was just in that mood. I had some air dry clay toasts in front of me (uncoloured). Rather than smearing some peanut butter or jam on it, I decided to experiment making them into french toast.

My mom makes them occasionally using "old" bread - meaning the bread are close to the date of expiry or bread that we simply haven't been able to finish within a few days. We never use fresh bread to make french toast, just because it's a "waste" to fry them while they are still fresh and soft.

Our recipe is simple and with no frills. Beat an egg, dip the bread into it and fry till it's golden crispy brown. We love eating it with maple syrup on the top!

So my inspiration came from remembering how our french toast look like.

And here's my french toast food ring! A little burnt on the sides ^^

Dollhouse Interior Decorating Wood Letters - 1/12 Dollhouse Scale

It has always been my desire to make these dollhouse interior decorating wood letters in 1/12 dollhouse miniature scale. I've seen many of these in real life, where wood letters are being used in home interior decorating. So, I was certainly very happy after accomplishing this, and managed to strike it off from my long list of want-to-do :)

One of the essential words that I wanted to make was "Dream". This word holds a special place in most of our hearts. It was also certainly true for us who find lots of joy in the dollhouse miniature world.

The beauty of this wood letter in 1/12 dollhouse miniature scale is that it can be placed as a wall hanging, on top of fireplaces, or even on top of your hutch or cabinets. Yes it can stand on its own.

Get yours now and decorate your dollhouse with this beautifully crafted wood letters! You can even paint on it! Find it at my shop under Dollhouse Miniature Accessories

Ladder Inspiration

In my last blog post, I mentioned that I was inspired to make a 1:12 scale dollhouse miniature ladder after I bought a miniature one at a gift shop. It was an impulse buy. I wasn't expecting to buy anything when I walked into the shop, but this caught my attention and I had many ideas of how I can use it. In the end, I decided to pick it up :)

It's looks very solid, but not really heavy, which was a good thing. 

With this model in hand, I started to make my own 1:12 scale dollhouse miniature ladder. This was just meant to be a guide - I didn't follow the entire design.

After a few hours, here's my miniature version placed side by side with the bigger ladder :)

I finally ordered some minis to be used to decorate the ladder. I can't wait for them to arrive!
