A Tilda Shop & A Sewing Room

When I have some free time... I have been working on a 1:12 Scale Tilda inspired Sewing Shop.
It's been a work in progress for me for many months now and I still find inspired moments when I want to make something new to add to the shop.







All of the beautiful Teeny Tiny Cupcakes,Cookies, Donuts and Macarons
inside this Display Case
were made by my wonderful and very talented friend 
Catherine over at SweetPetiteShoppe











Below is a 1:6 Scale Tilda inspired Sewing Room I am currently working on as well.
I have made so many little bits of ephemera and sewing supplies, that currently this room is completely filled... and I love it, cluttered and all...lol

All of the wooden furniture is hand cut and built by me, and I am loving the whole process of furniture making in both 1:6 and 1:12 Scale.

I hope you enjoy viewing the pictures.  I am having so much fun with this project.

1:12 Scale Slanted Bakery Display Rack


  Original Picture provided by customer
source unknown

This is a custom made 1:12 Scale slanted Bakery Display Rack
I made over the weekend to the specifications and wood stain provided by my customer.

I had so much fun making this wonderful piece and wanted to share pictures of how it turned out.

There was lots of measuring, cutting, sanding
and scoring the grid lines on the racks.  

But it was so much fun to make, and especially gratifying
when you see the final results are exactly like the original picture.

A few Favorite Miniatures

I've been happily busy making miniatures in both 1:12 and 1:6 Scale and wanted to share some of my favorite things to make.

I'm loving my new "EAT CAKE" Sign, with one word strategically placed on top of the other. 


These miniature Candles are so teeny tiny, you just can't even imagine it until you see them in person.


Teeny Tiny Ultra realistic Paper Straws.. a miniature person could actually drink through these... lol


Floral patterned Cupcake Wrappers.


Printed Paper Towels... for cleaning up all your dollhouse miniature spills! ;o)



Miniature Bakers Twine in many pretty colors.

Easter Baskets, Glittered Eggs, Rose Painted Eggs



The small nature of these teeny tiny glittered eggs makes them so much easier to handle and showcase... without the big mess found in larger life-sized glittered projects.  
I love their Sparkle and pretty jewel toned colors.

I also hand-painted roses on the pastel pink and blue eggs using acrylic paints and really small brushstrokes.

It was such a fun little project and I hope you love these as much as I do too :o)

Happy Easter, Happy Spring!

Valentine's Day - 1:6 Playscale Miniatures

I was inspired by a real life Frosted Chocolate-Chip Cookie-Cake made for Valentine's Day... 
and these Pedestal Jars filled with Candies seemed to be a perfect match to complete my Table Display.  
Everything was re-created in 1:6 Scale Miniature.
