Making a scene

It's a grey day today so I've declared it a PJ Day and am enjoying having the time to work on a couple of overdue projects.

I decided to try making a miniature version of
this pouffe using this full sized pattern as inspiration and some lovely wool I picked up in New Zealand.

And once it was done, I couldn't resist throwing together a scene to highlight it.

(Credits: Wall: Side of a concertina file I got in a swap years ago. Floor: Sample of wood laminate found in the back of the mini cupboard. Rug: See here. Shelving unit: Dolls House Emporium. Bus roll art: fridge magnet bought in Wellington. Glass bottles: Picked up in Venice many years ago. Storage boxes: Rement, repainted. Uppercase magazines: Made by me from cover images sent by Janice. Tray: Lego Scala. Coffee plunger: Delph Miniatures. Cup and saucer, pear: unknown.)

LOVE IT! I also love how 1:1 sized furniture looks like miniature scale. Makes our job so much easier =X
