kitchen content

Lately I'm so incredibly busy with my internship; preparing for the classes that I have to teach, evaluating those classe, writing piles of reports and so on.
I don't have much time to play with my dollhouse but I do little chores in the weekend, like a touch of paint or sanding an edge of wood... not much, so there isn't much to show..
But I still had these pictures of some of my dollhousefair treasures and some of the packages I made, and so I thought I'd share these!

Fruit and veggies, they will go into my fridge and onto the kitchen counter.

Some glass and stone ware, the wineglasses are so devine in real live! They will soon be set on my new table for a pretty christmas dinner!

I made these except the "hagelslag" de ruijter, I bought that one at a fair. I like to make/use products in my dollhouse that I have around in my real house!

Some sweet stuff for a wonderfull tea-time moment!

school project

For school I had to make a didactic model, that could be used as a teaching tool in one of my classes. We were free to pick a subject since it only was for practice, and here is the result.

It's a model I can use in my class to explain how the formula for calculating the surface-area of a circle came to be.
The original idea is not mine. This concept is very old. This is just my interpretation of it, adjusted to my wishes and I think I added some extra possibilities.

a busy week

This week has been a very busy one, I started a new internship at a school nearby.
I really needed to concentrate on the internship, all the assignments, all of the new impressions and so I didn't have any time for my dollhouse. But yesterday I didn't have much on my schedule so I could make some quick little things.
A little basket with pretty fabric on the inside, a shoebox filled with "vakantie foto's" (holiday pictures) and this little towelrack, made out of wood and wire. The towels I bought at a fair, and fashioned them into the right shape with an unhealty dose of hairspray ;)

Anton Pieck

Made this little frame, the picture inside is a printie of an Anton Pieck drawing. He made the most wonderfull drawings and paintings.
Here in the Netherlands is a themepark, the "Efteling", and it's all about fairy tales, but not in a disney kind of shape or form... No, the design is based on Anton Pieck his work, and it is so incredibly enchanting to see! I've been to the park several times, and everytime I leave the park with my head filled with fairy tales, and other wordly wonders.
I've also visited the Anton Pieck museum here in the Netherlands, and I have several copies of his drawings enchanting the walls of my house ;)
And what's in my real house, I also like in my dollhouse!

the fridge and some more dollhouse fair treasures

At one of the fairs I mentioned earlier, I also bought this fridge. It looks exactly like my real life fridge so I had to have it for my mini home as well! The broom and dustbin stuff was also bought at a fair.

Here it's opened, I love that the inside is just like my real life fridge as well! Please don't mind the unfinished-ness of the kitchen, I'm still working on it! :)
