Patisserie on overdrive!

Pastries seem to be on many minds - I've finished three orders and have made a fourth piece to list on my website.

Espresso machine and flatware by Yukio Kawai/TYA Miniatures.  Snakewood bowl by Jeff Spera.  Basket by Al Chandronnait - I stained it a darker brown shade.  Food and flowers by me :^)

Ho, ho, ho, are you on Santa's naughty list or nice list?  I fear I may be on the naughty one, evidenced by my backlogged order book, though the delays were not intentional.  But I am finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel and there is hope that I'll be caught up by Christmas in order to avoid a lump of coal in my stocking.  Which list are you on?


  1. Hi Alison! What a beautiful scene, everything is so perfectly made and your food must be delicious, I love the Danish pastries with strawberries, yummy :D! Your roses are pieces of art, they are absolutely perfect!
    For a place on the nice list, well, I think you have to finish a bit more of your orders, come on, go for it and you will be on the nice list, I'm sure ;D LOL!!
    Thank you for your lovely comment on my blog, it is much appreciated by me! Yes, it must be difficult to come into the spirit of Christmas with that warm temperatures ;)! The whole last week here, in The Netherlands, we had temperatures below zero day and night and with a strong eastern wind (came from Russia, where it's very cold now) it was bitter cold, brrr. In The Netherlands the younger people celebrate Christmas with presents, just like in America and so on. No, generally it's more a religious feast, so we have Sinterklaas with his presents, just like Santa Claus in other parts of the world.
    Phew, that was quite a story in my poor English, so I hope you will understand what I was talking about ;)!
    Have a nice weekend. Hugs, Ilona

    1. It is too warm here and too cold in the Netherlands! Wish the two could combine, then we would have perfect holiday weather :^) On the contrary, your English is excellent! I understand a bit of Spanish and speak broken Japanese, but not even close to your proficiency with English.
      The weekend is almost over, too soon, but it has been enjoyable - hope you're enjoying the same. xoxo

  2. Todo está perfectamente hecho, y esos pasteles daneses piden a gritos que alguien se los coma...Las flores son muy bonitas, pero la cafetera ¡me ha encantado! Un beso

    1. Thank you, Maria, for your wonderful comment :^) You are too kind!
