When I went to Paris we took a side trip to Giverney which was the home and gardens of the famous French Impressionist Claude Monet who lived from 1840-1926. I grew up loving his paintings and reading over and over the book Linnea in Monet's Garden by Cristina Bjork. When I finally visited I fell in love with his quaint, blue and white kitchen. I knew my Greenleaf Garfield/Thumbelina had to have a similar kitchen! The stove unit I purchased is the Mercer oven by Bespaq. I glued in a delft-blue tile sheet to tie the room together. It is one of my favorite, tiny details the house has so far.
Shantung Silk Drapery Treatments I made in a Pretty Pleat I by d. Anne Ruff Miniatures. I find that hot glue works best in keeping the pleats in. I used a pretty, blue gimp for the top of the pelmets I had in my gimp and passmenterie collection.
I am enjoying putting the bead board and chair rail in. I used a plastic, embossed tin ceiling. The small chandelier was brass, and I gave it a coat of shabby chic-esque white paint. I hand painted the french blue accents with a detail brush. I added some swarovski crystals that I purchased from Michael's craft store.
The butler pass-through window in the kitchen that leads to the dining room. It really works!
