Shabby Chic Miniature Bedroom Finished!

I fixed the dangling strings after the picture was taken....
Sorry the pictures aren't the best quality.  They were taken with my phone.

I made the bed and bedding.  The box, rug, and paperdoll picture were gifts from my mother.  The lamp is made from an old chess piece and some scrapbook paper.  The trash can is a toothpick holder from the Dollar Tree.  The cat was from one of those toy machines outside the grocery store.  It was a quick but fun project.

Playing with Minis

 So I was digging around some of my craft stuff, looking for some mini ideas and came up with these.
Items include a ring box, wood block, round scrap wood piece painted black, a tiny candle holder (have a bag full of them from a thrift store) golf tees, party favor cups from the Dollar Tree and a diy Christmas ornament I got a couple years back on sale for 50 cents.

I made a side table, a butcher block, some modern chairs and a foot stool.  I plan on fixing them up with a little more detail later.  What do you think?

Old fashioned Lantern

My first attempt at making one of these.

I think it came out pretty good.  I used some beads, wire and a straw.
