Melktijd / Milking time



In mijn kindertijd werden de koeien bij mijn Opa op de boerderij vernoemd naar ons, zijn kleinkinderen. Een koe heette dan ook: Ilona en nee, ik ben niet roodharig ;)!
Nog steeds heb ik iets met roodbonte koeien, ik zie ze vaak op mijn wandelingen langs de weilanden hier op het platteland. Inmiddels heb ik ook een miniatuur koe, zoals jullie waarschijnlijk wel zullen weten. Mijn roodbontje is een schitterend kunstwerk, gemaakt door Patricia van www.woolytales.blogspot.com

In my childhood the cows on the farm of my grandfather were named after us, his grandchildren. One cow also was called: Ilona and no, I am not red haired ;)!
I still have something with red and white cows, I often see them on my walkings along the meadows here in the country. In the meanwhile I also have a miniature cow, as you probably will know. This darling cow is a magnificent artwork, she is made by Patricia of www.woolytales.blogspot.com


Echte melkkoeien moeten gemolken worden, natuurlijk! Vorig najaar had ik voor Patricia al een miniatuur melkmachine gemaakt en in november kreeg ik de vraag van een volger van mijn blog of ik nog eens een melkmachine kon maken. Maar aangezien ik van elk miniatuur er maar eentje maak, moest ik een nieuw type zien “uit te dokteren”. Dat was nog niet zo eenvoudig, omdat een aantal onderdelen hetzelfde moeten zijn (anders kun je er natuurlijk niet mee melken, hè ;)?), maar het lukte me om de rest verschillend van mijn eerste melkmachine te maken.

In real life milkcows have to be milked, of course! Last autumn I had made a miniature milking machine for Patricia and in november I got a question of a follower of my blog, if I could make her one too. But since I make one of a kind miniatures, I had to “invent” another type of milking machine. This was not so simple to do, because a few parts had to be the same (otherwise you can’t milk, huh ;)?), but I managed to make the rest of the machine different as my first milking machine.




Ik heb eens goed op het blog van mijn volger gekeken en zag dat ze bezig was met het "verweerd" maken van haar miniaturen voor haar project, dus heb ik dat ook met dit machientje gedaan :D! De afmetingen van het hele apparaatje zijn: 8 cm hoog x 9 cm lang x 4,5 cm breed. 
Deze melkmachine is dus verkocht, vanaf nu moet ik mijn eigen miniatuur koe maar weer handmatig gaan melken ;)!!

I took a good look at the blog of my follower and saw she was busy with "weathering" her miniatures for her project, so I have weathered this miniature machine too :D! The sizes of the entire machine are: 8 cm heigth x 9 cm length x 4,5 cm width. 
So this milking machine has been sold, from now on I have to milk again my own miniature cow by hand ;)!!


Ik wil al mijn volgers bedanken voor hun fijne reacties op mijn berichten! De miniaturen blogwereld is een fantastische plaats om vriendschap en onze creativiteit te kunnen delen met elkaar!
Een warm welkom aan mijn nieuwe volgers!

I love your weathered milking machine, you have done a wonderful job!

Mmh, I think your own cow prefers that you milk her by hand in any case, after all, isn't she a bit like a pet ;-)

Hey Ilona, mag ik vragen hoe je de roestplek hebt gemaakt? gr. AM

Wyrna Christensen zei

It is amazing all you can do Ilona. A milking machine. I have never seen in miniature before, and it's the second time you make one. Impressive. So fine with wire, etc. It is so well done. I am speechless. Beautiful made​​.

Hugs
Wyrna

¡Hola Ilona! Es un trabajo sensacional, nunca había visto parece en miniatura. Es sorprendente todo lo que se puede aprender en tu blog.

I do love unusual miniatures like this. Great work Ilona =0)

SaMiRa73 zei

Hi Ilona!
I´m always a little excited, when I see that there´s a new post from you! Your second milk machine is gorgeous again, I like the aging very much!
When I was a teenage girl I was quite upset when I found out that my favorite aunt had a cow called "Sandra" in her stable. She told me that this was her favorite cow :-)
She still is my favorite auntie, but now I wonder: did you give your cow a name, too?
Greetings, from cold and snowy Bavaria! Hugs, Sandra

Sans! zei

Dearie, you should be nicknamed Ileonardo! A mean milking machine??!!! What will you think of next? An Egg Picking Machine that can also fry your eggs in 8 styles? :):)

You are awesome, Ilona :) and I like your grandpa.

So was Ilona a good cow? teehehehehe..sorry, had to do that :).

Daydreamer zei

Ilona, you are AMAZING!!! Your attention to detail and your ability to create in miniature the most Diverse and Fantastic things is unparallelled!!! We had cows when I was a teenager and I learned to milk by hand... no machines! Cows still have a warm place in my heart.. they are such loving and generous and sweet creatures!!! I don't know how you manage to invent your perfect miniatures!!! This milk machine is Awesome!!! Even the coiled electrical wire!!!

Maria Ireland zei

Lieve Ilona, wat een ontzettend gave melkmachine, ongelooflijk, zo klein en zo perfect, daar zal ongetwijfeld
iemand heeeel blij mee zijn :)

Lieve groetjes Mieke

BiWuBär zei

Noone who would just look at the last pictures (without the cow and the match... *grin*) would ever think he's looking at a miniature. It's incredibly well done, okay, I can say that about everything you do, but the realism of this one including the aging is breathtaking. And it's always amazing that you can minimize everything and anything. I know what I'm talking about - I'm the proud owner of the most realistic beehive in miniature made by a wonderful friend. And I like Sans! newest invention - Ileonardo... ;O)
