As promised earlier here are links to some of the tutorials I used:
The brickwork- Brae at Otterine's miniatures
The stones- Carol at Victoria Miniland
The concrete path- Joanne at Joanne's Minis (youtube video)
The cup cakes- SugarCharmShop (youtube video)
The kitchen Table- Leslie Shepard at About.com miniatures
The grater- Elizabeth at StudioE (the measuring spoons are from Elizabeth too but I can't seem to find the page right now)
Thank-you to Christina of Little Victorian for hosting the contest (I had so much fun participating) and to the judges Brae, Victoria and Anna.
Thank-you to Christine Valentine for everything you did!
Thank-you to all the miniaturists that share their ideas and experience and to all of you who have welcomed me into the doll house community.
I know it sounds like I'm accepting an Oscar but I really am grateful and don't want to forget anyone.
