    New Kitchen Miniatures Plus French Kitchen Artwork & Sale!

    Filed under Miniatures, Rhonda Secrist Thomas

    There are lots of cute (and practical) new kitchen minis today (and some new items that would work in a bathroom, too).

    All the pots & pans made me think of a beautiful “Une place dans mes rêves” (A Place in My Dreams) that Design Team Member Rhonda Thomas created a few years ago. So I’m highlighting some photos of that project (below the new items) and I’ve created a new sale collection from the supply list, too!

     
    “Une place dans mes rêves” (A Place in My Dreams)


    “For the past few months, I’ve had this reoccurring dream that I lived in a little cottage in the woods by Petit Trianon. I was the lead cook for Marie Antoinette and she treated me with such respect and care. It was so peaceful there in the woods with all of my animals around (notably a beagle, a siamese cat and chickens in the yard). I loved the smell of the air and the way moss grew all around.

    “And I always felt so wonderfully alive in my kitchen that was stocked with the best quality of foods and every type of copper pots, pans and utensils that I would ever need to create a delicious dish with. I spent many hours in comfort in front of my large fire place, baking breads and making pots of stews on a wood stove.

    The best red ticking fabrics were available to me to make my table cloths and towels; they fit quite nicely in the wooden hutch that I finished myself. My kitchen was one of the few that had a Dry Sink that included its very own Hand Pump and a massive stone sink. Many happy memories were made at my little home, my beautiful kitchen, at “Une place dans mes rêves.”

    Wow, Rhonda really went all out on recreating the kitchen of her dreams! With it being a large piece, Rhonda used two Deep Open Front Room Boxes for it.

    The large Rustic Door gives the kitchen entrance a nice, authentic look the way Rhonda painted it; then added an Old Fashioned Latch and Black Strap Hinges to it.

    To see many more pictures and for more details (including tutorials on how she created the fireplace and how she used faux-woodgrain paper to cover the Dry Sink), please visit Rhonda’s blog. Note: as we moved web sites since the original project, use this link to see the supply list.
