Miniature Monday - Venetian Palazzo!

Welcome to Miniature Monday! Today's feature is another favorite of mine.  I attended Molly Cromwell's Sturbridge Miniature Festival.  I had a blast shopping and I signed up for the 4 day Venetian Palazzo with Bluette.

The furniture is all made by Bespaq.  They are beautifully detailed pieces.  I used  painting techniques to make the table tops look like marble and the furniture is painted gold with Ceramcoat Metallics.  The amazing flower arrangements are handcrafted by Paula Gilhooley.

The hallway, 2nd floor landing and terrace give the illusion that the space continues.  The chandelier and wrought iron on the landing are both made by Miniature Artist J. Getzan.  I was having a hard time deciding on more accessories, so I've left the scene alone.  As I travel to different miniature shows, I often find pieces that work and I add them.

Thanks for looking!


  1. I was always thinking how fun it would be to do mini paintings for doll houses. I have a doll house that I really need to put together. I want to make my own curtains too. I can crochet lace. I -Love- this post. Thanks for sharing!

  2. It just amazes me how every time I see one of your posts I am in awe as if I am seeing a mini for the first time. It just blows me away. I love it Ketsia! Hugs!

  3. What a beautiful roombox! I love the little spaces you added on both sides.
    As it is a Venetian Palazzo, how about adding some sumptuous fabrics?
