A Finished Project....I am feeling "In The Pink"

My work is done........well mine and all the wonderful food artists I have showcased in this little room box by Dolls House Emporium. It has been a real pleasure to do and I would certainly recommend that anyone who is involved in big projects to take some time out when the going gets tough, step aside and take on a tiny project.
The door opens to show off some extra goodies.
 This is a very shallow box so there was no need for any furniture it has been all about the window.
 I have been able to purchase the work of a number of very talented food artists and I think my little room box highlights their wonderful work.
 These are: Paris MiniaturesMundo RosaPetit D'Licious and Lory
 Another great thing about such a small project is that it can be put on show anywhere in the house without taking up loads of space. In The Pink is destined for my downstairs toilet where it can provide a talking point for any guests and visitors!
 While I have been having fun, I have become a teeny bit addicted to miniature sweet things which has progressed into planning another room box. To be fair it has been on the back burner for a while but I have decided it will definitely be brought forward.
I intend to do a Mad Hatter's Tea Party this year with as many characters as I can get and a tea table that will be a mixture of everyone I love best and some items by me as usual. I want to give it a slight twist so the table will be in four sections with cakes, table flowers and china for each season of the year. What do you think? Will it work or just look like a mess? 
Oh the planning is such fun.

  2. I LOVE this cake shop Janice and what a FABULOUS assortment of mini food ART, Beautifully in your store window. :D
    I think that collections like yours really have a visual impact when they are grouped as thoughtfully together such as yours are. It is tempting me to want to try one myself, especially when I see such a lovely presentation as what you are showing.
    WOW!!!!

    1. Aw Elizabeth you make me blush. I am lucky to be able to purchase such lovely pieces and you are so right, they are teeny pieces of Art with a capital A. I always worry that my projects are a little bit too controlled but I think that control has worked here.

  8. Lovely Janice! And your idea about the mad hatters tea party is an interesting one. I think if you keep the theme running from start to finish, and think carefully about tying in the different seasons, like using a similar colour palette or complimentary colours, then it should work. You can always change things as you go to make it work anyway. Good luck!

    1. I know Shannon. It might be a step too far to have tables full of such disparate colours. I am still thinking about it to be honest. I have so enjoyed the prettiness of this project that I might be tempted into a typical summer tea party. Decisions, decisions......

    1. Thank you Vivian. The great think about miniatures is that you can play with colour schemes that you wouldn't dare to use in the house and they make you smile. Lovely choice for your daughter, these little boxes are perfect for gifts.

  14. What a nice little project and so different from your usual work - I can see why you enjoyed it so much. I love the fact that it will now be a talking point in your downstairs loo and these little boxes take up so little room you may have started something! Whenever you get stuck with a "main project", just create another little box - lol!

    1. So different Irene which is probably why I enjoyed it so much. I will definitely try and have tandem project now I have the room as it means I can take a break when I am struggling with Diagon Alley. Or I could always finish one of the many unfinished houses I have!!
