Isabellas's playhouse

Back again with a new project, a small one. This is going to be a child's playhouse; the kind you would find in some backyards (when you have the space!). It is 1/12" scale, and the body is made out of gator board which is very sturdy and it will not warp. In the first photo, the whole house is held together with masking tape for "dry fit" purposes.



I used scrapbook paper for the wallpaper and found a pretty border for the top. Next, I used already made "hardwood" flooring and handpainted a design with rabbits and chicks...I think the chicks are a little hard to see in the photo. Any way, I am yet to polish the floor before I glue it into place. I am going to apply siding for outer walls,and dye some wood shingles for the roof. I have hand painted the ceiling in sky blue with clouds and some tiny birds flying here and there.



I will have more pictures of the latest progress...however, I appreciate your patient because I am slow at this blogging thing :) and I have too many mini projects going on.

Thank you very much for your visit and have a good one!!!

A quarter scale garden shed



Hello everyone and thank you for stopping by. Today, I would like to share photos of my most recent completed project. It is a quarter scale garden shed, measuring 6.5 x 4.5 inches this little piece stands tall among my other larger scale houses. It was a joy to work with and I am happy with the results considering this was the first time I worked on this tiny scale.



To the side of the house you can see the attached green house which I made from a kit. The fence with gardening gloves is made from toothpicks, the bird feeder was made using metal findings and some white paint to give it a shabby look.



I need to add more gardening stuff, might be spread some dirt around...it looks a little too clean LOL... I'll get to that later.
Thank you again for your valuable visit,

Annie

Christmas Vignette





A vignette measuring 9"W x 7"H x 5"D. This scene was made around the Christmas tree which was a challenge given to us by our Club's president. The challenge was to build a scene around the tree which is made of glass. I covered the tree with green turf used for miniature landscaping. The front of the box will be attached to a photo frame and later hang on a wall.

The cute kitty was a gift from my mother long time ago...I knew I would fine the perfect spot for it. The fire screen is hand-painted by Rosemarie Torre.

Thanks for looking and have a great day,

Annie

Finished Lamp


This little room is "the craft room"






As promised, here are some photos of my completed lamp. This lamp was a club project, made with picture frames for the actual room. Using a lamp kit and thanks to the ingenuity of my dear Joe who did the "wiring" for the room, I have a working lamp!!!
I am yet to add or I should say make the books that will go on the hutch's empty shelve :)

Enjoy it!!
Annie
