Club project - shop box

Did I really say I didn't have time for miniatures???

Well, I'd forgotten about these pots...
and I did the outside (most of it) of the box file shop a couple of weeks ago, it only took a few hours...
Still a lot to do as well as figure out what to do with the top or roof and whether it should have a carry handle of some sort...
oh and I finished the oriental style rug...
Now I just have to decorate the room...
Not bad for someone who thinks she doesn't have time for miniatures....

Happy mini-time,



  1. Hi Idske! Your rug looks great and it is very pretty with the upholstered arm chair. Your little pots are a lovely color and I also like the facade of the little shop too! You have used your time for mini making well!


  2. Well, you've got a lot of miniature work done indeed!
    The pottery is just gorgeous and in this beautiful color it's just top notch.

    Love the rug you made!

  3. Your pottery is remarkable and so is your rug. I love the green you have chosen for the pottery.

  4. HaHa, you are doing just fine with so little time for mini's ;-)

    Your pots are really beautiful, I love the colour of the glaze. And your rug is wonderful, I don't think I could have survived all that background.

  5. Nee, da's zeker niet slecht voor iemand met weinig tijd, Idske :D LOL!! Je vloerkleedje is prachtig om te zien op die houten vloer.
    Ik vind de steentjesmuur erg mooi, de rest bovendien ook. Ga je een hendeltje er aan maken om het te dragen, als ik dat goed begrijp?
    En dan je één woord: prachtig!! Je kunt die barstjes zo mooi zien en ik ben gek van die kleur.
    Liefs, Ilona

    1. Hi Ilona, Ja, ik stond ook te kijken! Dat hendeltje is een idee, omdat het nogal eens getransporteerd moet worden. Alleen heb ik geen idee hoe dat er veilig aan vast te maken is. Alternatief is een soort macrame net dat je om de hele box doet.

      Haha, die barstjes maak je zichtbaar met een beetje verdunde inkt! Wat we niet helemaal begrijpen is dat er op de kleine potjes maar een paar barstjes zijn, terwijl het op het probeersel een heel dicht netwerk van barstjes zichtbaar was!
      Liefs, Idske

  6. Dear Idske,
    Your carpet looks wonderful.I'm a little jealous. You make amazing pottery. Do you sell the pottery?
    I do live in the wrong part of the Netherlands.
    Hugs Dorien

    1. Hi Dorien, Thanks! I don't sell them, sorry. I only have 2 hours a week for pottery. I think to sell them I would have to make many more. But what isn't possible yet, might come together in the future, who knows. I do love pottery!

      You live in the prettiest part of the Netherlands, with the exception of Friesland, of course! :)

  7. Hello Idske,
    Pretty good if you ask me. The exterior is lovley and I just love the pots...such a beautiful colour.
    Big hug,

  8. I like the armchair on the rug.
    Bye, Faby

  9. Molto bello il vasellame, ottimo lavoro per l'esterno della casa ed il tappeto ha trovato una giusta locazione. Un saluto. Manu

  10. ¡Qué maravilla e alfombra! , me he quedado impresionada por su finura, muy bella, el sillón te quedará fantástico en esa estancia.
    La ollas me encantan y el exterior perfecto, felicidades por todo ello:-)

  11. Thank you all! It's so lovely to get such nice comments! Makes me even more determined to make more time for minis!

  12. Welcome to my blog, A fairytale come true. Exciting things you're doing. All your pottery is very nice.
