Shabby Chic in 1 inch scale, pt.3

In this installment of pictures the lovely tote bag favors have been added to the scene. In my haste to get things together I forget to ask the ladies if I could mention their names. So in order to give credit and keep privacy, I will credit with their initials.

The gorgeous picture on the wall is from P.T. I'm kicking myself for only getting a placement shot and not a photo of the actual piece. I shall remedy the situation when time allows, I promise.


The hassock was made by P.V. I'm glad she made those since I was trying hard to decide between a hassock and the pillow. Of course you all already knew which direction I chose based on an earlier post. P.V. also provided the lovely basket next to the bench. I filled it with white roses from my stash.

M.W. gave all of those tiny Valentine cards in the open drawer of the dresser. She also provided the books on the dresser. The friend that went with me, E.G., drove us there, so I made the little fabric baskets for her give as gifts.


It never ceases to amaze me how the addition of just a few items can really start to bring a miniature room alive. The next post on Shabby Chic will feature the final arrangement of the room with the addition of items I had in my stash. I'm not sure if I will get them up tomorrow or later in the week. I have to scale them all down and get them posted in my store's gallery as well. We shall see how much time I have for such things. I hope you are enjoying the blossoming of this particular room.

Very nice!

I noticed "Second-Hand Lions" is one of your favorite movies. I have it listed as one of my top three. Maybe "average minds think alike"?

A paleontologist?! Very interesting!

I have been looking forward to you posting more about the roombox. Thanks for letting me peek over your shoulder to watch this room come together. I will be patient while you finish getting the final arrangement done and photographed!

Your miniatures are so impressive. I absolutely would not have the patience to do something like this and so appreciate your work all the more. What I wonder is, how do you keep kitties from wanting to help???

Jody: Thank you!

Alice: You won't have to wait much longer. :-)

Pamela and Edward: Your compliment means so much given the amount of work and detail you put into real life rooms. Thank you. :-)

Leigh: I don't keep them from helping. I have 3 "Godlizzas" running through my little worlds.
