In on the Ground floor - the Kitchen & Dining Room

I thought I would share pics of the kitchen and dining room of the James Bay House because, the dead of Winter, there is nothing more comforting than a warm kitchen redolent with the aromas of good food cooking and a dining table set with the prospect of a delicious dinner to be served…

Soup's on & lots of other goodies too!!


Gleaming copper on the "cast-iron" stove


Kitchen cabinet stocked for Winter


The ice box is just a step away from the kitchen table

Many of you will recognize the furniture. Yes, it is all made from Chrysnbon plastic kits :-) 


The dining room is furnished with a mix of Bespaq and Classic pieces, however,  the table is set with my favourite "porcelain": Chrysnbon's dinner set which I painted and glazed to look like fine china.


Dinner table set for two



Hand-painted "porcelain" place-settings

Please, take a seat…Glass of wine, Anyone?

Another Year, Another House

We have a brand new year stretching before us, I thought that I would share a few pictures of the James Bay House, the largest of my miniature real estate holdings. I hope you enjoy the pics and I hope that 2015 will be a year that brings health, happiness and prosperity to you all!

Christmas Greetings


This is a wonderful time of year with all the decorations and lights everywhere and many miniaturists take great delight in decorating their houses and miniature scenes. Christmas trees are a particular favourite of mine, in all scales…

Happy Christmas, Everyone!
