My example shelfie was somewhat out of character:
but used a number of items I bought at the show. The pot I'd picked up as part of one of this year's 'bags of bits', which I love so much, and the succulent in it was $2.50 from (I think) Ryan's Realm.The blue picture was $1 from someone else's cheapy pile, and the set of Jane Austen novels were $30 from Michelle's Miniatures. The easter eggs I bought cheaply from Victorian Dollhouses earlier this weekend as they were out of scale. A bit of spray paint and suddenly my miniature Easter egg collection has grown...
My other version is much more 'me' (if only my real house was this tidy!)
I bought the desk, shelf, in tray and magazine holders from minisx2 six months ago and have been waiting for the perfect opportunity to use them. The chair is Reac.The wallpaper was a free sample from Masters (you're only supposed to tear off 20 cm but I may have overestimated my measuring a teensy bit...)
On the top shelf: a tiny birdhouse from Dawn Watson's stall the show ($5), a cork number from the Typo Not Quite Right table ($2 for a set of 44), cogs from last year's craft fair (don't remember how much they were but probably a couple of dollars a bag).You've seen the pine cones and dish before.
The jar of shells was part of the stash that Elvira sent me in June last year, and the books and magazines are from my stash of made and purchased items.
On the right of the desk is a basket of black and white sewing by Dianne Cotterill that I couldn't resist at the show ($13),
and on the left my usual collection of stationery, plus an iPad in the in tray (Wow! the owner of this place is seriously organised!)
