    Candy Selection

    From the album: Various Miniatures

    Each little candy-filled bottle is just perfect and they look good enough to eat!

    © Lene Pieters 2015

  2. I'd been taking a break from Dollhouse's for a while (partially due to time constraints and lack of inspiration) but when the idea struck me to make a tiny See's shop I just couldn't resist! For those of you who haven't been to See's shop (almost all are in CA) they sell really delicious chocolates and the shops are vintage looking and are all black and white (the shops and uniforms are almost exactly the same as they were when See's opened in 1921) I'm using the Storybook cottage kit, and I got a nice sheet of black and white tiles for the flooring (it's the first time I'm actually buying pre-made floors for a DH) I started on the fimo clay chocolates and bonbons last night (I'll post pictures if I can figure out how to post the pictures from my phone) the chocolate paper cups are going to be made out of tissue paper and I'm going to make the boxes soon (just need to get some good pictures of the 1lb and 1/2lb boxes first) also does anyone know how to make some tiny glass dishes like these?

    Purchases

    From the album: Country House - Album 2

    Some toys, candy, and cereal purchased for the girls.
  4. From the album: 2014 HBS Creatin' Contest--Erabliere Aucoin, Sugar Shack and Shop

    At the other end of the taffy trough, the shutters are open to the cash wrap area inside, so visitors can purchase their taffy and grab a paper plate, a napkin, or even a few more goodies purchased inside.

    Sorry for that interruption! Back to fooling the eye. A smallish pot is used to dip into boiled-down maple syrup, at the soft-ball stage, and pour into onto fresh snow, weather permitting, for fresh maple taffy. Sometimes popsicle sticks are laid on the snow before pouring to make grabbing and eating the candy a little less messy, as you can see at the left-hand side of this photo. The resulting chewy, sticky candy can be pulled, stretched, or simply gobbled right away, according to one's taste, almost the minute it has hit that cold snow. Yum!

    A couple will be sitting down to their treats in just a minute. On one plate, maple taffy on a stick, freshly pulled from the snow in the taffy-trough, and maple cookies and a sugar candy on the other plate.

    At this long table it looks like a family of five has set down their paper plates full of various goodies, and maybe gone back for a few drinks to wash them down with. Taffy on sticks, maple candies of a couple of kinds, fudge, and cookies.

    Outside the wide-open shutter windows of the shop, maple-taffy-making is in full swing. Thank goodness the Aucoins put down a little sand on the snow to keep this well-trafficked area from becoming slippery!

    Like any good gift shop, the Aucoins will sell you any version of maple that you like—as long as you buy some they're happy! Small "bags" of plastic wrap, with thin strips of raffia for bows.

    Candies being sold by-the-piece in jars. The "jars" are made from old, tiny (1") Christmas ornaments, so old that some of the paint was flaking off; I discovered that with a good wash in hot soapy water the rest of the paint came off, leaving them as clear glass. With a jewelry finding on the bottom as a base, and thin aluminum as a lid, they look quite a bit like old-fasioned candy jars.

    Those tiny shaped candies then were gift-boxed, into packages of heart candies and packages of maple-leaf candies.
  12. From the album: 2014 HBS Creatin' Contest--Erabliere Aucoin, Sugar Shack and Shop

    These are the maple sugar candies, made from polymer clay mixed about 1:1 with craft sand to get that grainy-sugar look. In this closeup you can see that I made a tiny mold in a heart shape for these...

    Fresh pans of maple fudge, ready for sale by-the-piece or by the pan, if you dare!
  14. From the album: 2014 HBS Creatin' Contest--Erabliere Aucoin, Sugar Shack and Shop

    Pre-made maple candies come in two main types: formed/ pressed maple sugar candy (tastes a bit like eating a clump of brown sugar), and hard candies like any lozenge-type candy. And then of course, there's maple fudge. (And fresh-taffy pulling, but we'll get to that later!) I have family members who swear by the hard-candy type (which is more traditional to Québec), and family members who only love the pressed-sugar type (very New England). Personally, I'll gladly forsake both for a good homemade fudge, so at the Aucoins' shop, they sell it all! These candies (and a few cookies) were made in several ways. Some are stained-glass paint, squirted out in tiny amounts and dried on waxed paper, then peeled off; some are polymer clay, or polymer clay with additions to it in the case of the maple-nut fudge; and the pressed-sugar ones are polymer clay mixed about 1:1 with craft sand, to give it that gritty, granulated-sugary look.
  15. From the album: Scenes & Other Minis

    While I was sketching out the designs for my other chocolate boxes, I kept thinking that the heart box would be fun as a pendant necklace, so I changed the design a little and made a necklace too. Available in my Etsy shop; https://www.etsy.com/shop/kylelefort

  16. From the album: Scenes & Other Minis

    Hand made from my own designs, my miniature candy boxes are made from reclaimed cardboard and paper, Paperclay, and painted with acrylic paint. The super tiny, hand sculpted polymer clay "chocolates" sit wrapped in their own tissue paper compartments. Everything has been sealed with 2 coats of crystal clear Polycrylic, for a lasting, quality finish. No two boxes are exactly the same. Available in my Etsy shop; https://www.etsy.com/shop/kylelefort
