Paint Me White and Reorganize!

As most of you know I am reorganizing my little house.
I live on 30 square meter, (yes! incl. kitchen and bathroom)
so I do need to create some space
for my miniature hobby and upcoming projects ;-) 

Here are some photos from the things I did...
 (click on the images to enlarge them)

I gave this small blue dresser a shabby white look!

This one I decided to be just plain white...

I also painted this bamboo cabinet white...
My Modern 'Lake View' Dollhouse will be placed on it later. 

And I have two dressers (each with 4 drawers) 
were I keep my material. 
But the drawers could not hold all that heavy stuff.
They were all bend in the middle! 
So I had to find a solution for them to fix that problem.
Here is what I did.

First I glued the bottom back into the drawers...

 I had to do this outside because of the little space I have in the house,
so it had to be good weather... (it is winter here too!  lol)

Then I glued some wooden pieces into it so it would be more sturdy.
These heavy bricks are holding them on their place 
while they were drying...

Oh yeah... 
I measured out the size of these organizers that I found at IKEA
before I glued the wooden pieces into it...

And see... 
Now I can put my material and stuff in it. 

There are two of these organizers on each side (stacked) 

Some of the drawers are just with the wooden pieces in the middle, 
which still makes it more easy to separate the things...

Still have to unpack and sort out a whole bunch of 
card boxes with all the material and miniatures
(I stashed everything in boxes while I was fixing these drawers), 
so I still will be busy for a while.
But it is inspiring too, it gives me lots of new ideas!! 

See you all soon!!

Lots of Gifts!

I will show you all the wonderful gifts 
that I have recently won and got from my dear friends.

My parents went at mid-December a few days to Olympia 
and brought this for Dimphy and me.
These gardian angels are made by Annemarie, a very talented lady.
Her creations are called Fortune Folk 

 (click on the photos to enlarge)

My mom gave Dimphy also a carousel for her playroom 
and I am sure I will find a nice spot for the Olympia magnet.

Ewa has send me these colorful coasters in 
beautiful Polish folk art design
and a extraordinary miniature building. 
Which is so lovely! 
It is a medieval crane Żuraw Gdański (Gdansk's Crane), 
(more information can be found when you click on the name)

In October I was so lucky!
I won a very nice and delicious giveaway 
by Kathy from WeeLittleWest
It is just amazing how detailed these tiny sweets are!! 

And these are the Christmas gifts I've received from everyone, 
I will save most of it for in the future Christmas room ...

From Jolande this cute little angel ...

From Sjoukje a beautiful knitted mitten ...

By Birgit and Flutterby we are really spoiled ...

And also by Sabiha, who sent all these beautiful things to me ...

Thank you all SO MUCH for these wonderful gifts! 
You made us very happy. 

Well... I had kept a few things for Dimphy 
(which I had bought at the miniature fair in Arnhem) 
and saved them for her and Sam for Christmas …

Last but not least... 
I want to thank you all for the wonderful Christmas cards 
and all your lovely wishes for Christmas and New Year!

If I forgot to reply to you, I am very sorry about it. 
My life is still not without chaos at the moment  lol,
as you might remember;
I am reorganizing ALL the stuff in my house...
It  costs me more energy, that I had expected...
And I need to take my time for it. 
 Next post I will share some photos from the things 
I am doing in my house with you...
