Friday, December 7

Well, here I am!  Back to blogging!  I've missed you!  I haven't worked on minis for four years!

I was recently inspired to make a Christmas gift for my son's girlfriend after seeing photos of her booth at an antique mall.  It's called "Abby's Korner" and is in Adjectives in Winter Park Florida.

 Then I found this box.

I drove two hours south of me to get it! It is perfect for a little room box.

It took a lot of work to get the inside finished.  I sanded, spackled, sanded, primed, painted, added wallpaper, flooring, shiplap and lights!

 I copied things from her real shop.

Working from photos is fun!

This one was the most challenging but the one I like best.


Painting with toothpicks is not easy!  The Hudson Bay blanket is made with a soft piece of flannel.  I use permanent markers to make the stripes.

I made two of these little cabinets before I got one that was the right size.

Here are some of the minis I made, waiting to be glued in place...

I've added some signs and flowers, touched up and moved things around.  I will post photos of the finished box later.

 Hope you have a beautiful day!
