A Little Project

I have been wanting to make a miniature display for a wall in our house that wasn't a dollhouse and that wouldn't take up too much room.
Last year when visiting family in the Isle of Man I bought a shop front from Model World and my lovely husband has just made the box for me.  Now it is time to start the best bit, decorating it and deciding what type of shop it will be, no doubt there - it has to be shabby chic!
Here are pictures of the very first stage - not very exciting but I want to log its progress from inception to end - so please call by again soon to see how it progresses.

New things today

I have made some little clock hands for my clocks.  They are so delicate and fiddly but I think they do improve them.
While I had the camera out I pushed myself to take some photos of my new items (as you know photography is not my favourite thing!

This is the ivory coloured dresser I have uploaded to my site
I have done blue and of course a pink one!

Plus a new bed and a few other bits.

Little romantic lamps

I have also made some bedroom screens that I included in these pictures

They are non working

New ideas

I have so many things going through my head of what I would like to make for my website.  There just isn't enough hours in the day and I should really think about giving up going to bed!  Maybe then I could get my ideas done.  Seriously though I have loads of things to upload to my site but the truth being I am not very good at taking photographs and never very happy with the ones I take so I tend to keep putting my photography sessions off.  Of course by doing this I am not showing my latest creations so I just hope you all bare in mind that I can't take decent photographs!
This is one I uploaded a few days ago.

I am just putting some finishing touches to some shabby chic lamps and will take some photos (good ones I hope) later all being well.
I have made some little embroidery hoops and might put these on my site I just want to add some embroidery to them first.  What do you think?
