I have placed my Shabby Chic House in its place of honour on the bay shelf of my living room but before I forget about it and return to Diagon Alley I thought I would post a few photographs of the living room.
I have added a mirror from Minimum World that was really cheap and I have simply painted it. The lantern is from Patrizia's furniture and accessory range. The dainty candlesticks and candle tray are from Le Miniature di Eurosia whose table was a shabby chic treasure trove at KDF last December.
The whole scene has come together with one of Lidi's superb baskets filled with the sort of comfy wrap you need on a chilly day. Two frames from MollySue Miniatures and a lazy twig plant by me.
This chic unit is another piece by MollySue Miniatures and is a great way to display a few bits and bobs that I have painted. The wellies are just a bit of fun, painting is not my strong point!!
Every modern girl needs a desk and I have topped this one with a letter rack from MollySue filled with some printies and a notice board reflecting my daughter (and me a teeny bit!!). Three of her all time favourite hunks, cream dresses very much like the one she chose for her graduation last summer and one of her favourite books that we both read on a family holiday to Granada, Spain a few years back.
The whole scene with a vintage picture of me at my christening with my god-mother and a 'HOME' wall rack from MollySue Miniatures
I have used battery lights for this project from Minimum World as I didn't want any wires coming out of the back of the dolls house. The bay is topped by my parent's wedding photo and I have added a vase of lilies made by me and a gorgeous silver photograph frame by Mike Sparrow that was my treat from the new City of London Show.
So that's that with this project for a while. I still have a couple of pieces to add. I would like to find a mini Mac, another fawn pug, a nicer sofa, pillows for the bed.............gosh, I thought I had finished!!!
