Mini bits!



I could tell you how far I've come with my build, but that would be a lie!! Ha.  Actually I was waiting for a 1/2 inch rectangle paper punch to make brick for the interior wall.  In my mind a punch would be faster, but waiting a month for it to arrive seems to have killed that time advantage.

But

While the project sits waiting for me, I did play around with some minis.  




It turns out that my package to Anna-Maria was on the slowest boat known to man.  Almost 12 weeks after shipping, it arrived.  In her initial package to me, she sent me this beautiful trestle table kit which I finished in American Warm White.  She also made the wire basket (swoon!).  The 1960's vintage metal chair was an eBay find.  The beautiful seascape is by Rebecca Hymes.  She paints gorgeous pictures in 1:12 and sells them on eBay.  I love her work!

I have been burning up the sewing machine lately.  Making table clothes, place mats, and baby cradle bedding for Miss Kitty's school.  The ladies at the fabric store must think I've crazy since all they see me buy is meters and meters of flannelette in random prints. But by the time I'm done a project the thought of making mini bedding is not at the top of my list!

  1. I love this mini scene! I can't decide what I like best, the rug on the wall as a tapestry or the gorgeous wire sculptures.

    1. Thanks Sheila. The wire sculptures were the off cuts from a heist as ornament I turned into a table. Only a mini maker sees trash as mini potential!

  2. You have a gift for making tablescapes Kat and this one is Very Good!
    I love the wall hanging, which adds interest, color and warms up the wall yet doesn't compete with the marvelous white shag wall to wall carpet.
    The trestle table is Wonderful as are ALL of the mini accessories, you've artfully arranged on it and I LOVE that vintage chair too!

    Two thumbs Way UP! :D

    1. Thanks Elizabeth!!

      The carpet is actually textured foam sheets I found in the craft aisle at dollarama. Dollar store for the win!

  3. You've set a warm and comfortable scene. I need a shrinking ray. I love the chair, and the rug on the wall, and, well, everything.

    I read your post yesterday but didn't comment then because I was off to eBay. Now I must go check on the bidding for my new painting.

    1. Do you by chance know anything about the manufacturer? Mine had no labels and the seller knew nothing
