Yet Another Cross Post....

Sorry if my cross posting from MidModMini is becoming irritating. I can't pull myself away from the modern stuff :) I promise, more shabby/country stuff soon but don't be surprised if I find a way to mesh the two styles. It's what I've always dreamed of  for my own home (hey, what happened to the word 'dreamt'? was that ever a word?) Anywhoo, more here and here.

Oh my....
I just stumbled across Sarah's blog this afternoon. I was looking for scale figures for my room box scenes...
Lo' and Behold, Twelvemo by Sarah Beare. PLEASE go spread the love if you like these 12th scale figures, let Sarah know... (I'm gobsmacked and can't wait to get my grubby hands on one or three) :

Teak Shelving

Teak Shelving by Atomic Ω Blythe
Teak Shelving, a photo by Atomic Ω Blythe on Flickr.

I found a whole group of teak units on ebay.
I'm so thrilled with them...a bit oversized but I think they work.

Coffee table, chairs and sofa by me. Accessories are Re Ment, vintage Barbie, some hand made plants and beads and bits and bobs.

Mid Century Modern Miniature Sofa






Hello Friends :D
Hope you are doing well!
Worked today on a lovely little sofa.
The seat cushion is tufted. Throw pillows and seat are 100% silk in a duo tone.
Wish I had this in real life!

So, You Probably, Maybe Didn't Know This About Me



but.... I absolutely ADORE Mid Century Modern and Danish Modern style. I am, in fact looking for our RL dream home...believe it or not, Mid Century Moderns do exist here in farm country!
We won't be buying for a little while but if I find the ONE, I will be pressuring hubs, leasebound or not! :)




It's something I've been interested in for a long time but really had only dipped my toes into those miniature waters.
I just won this on evilbay, and probably overpaid for it but I am so in love with the whole set!
Dig that room divider!!!





I am slowly building my stash of MCM furnishings and odds and ends and bits and bobs so I can build some scenes to photograph...for my own pure, unadulterated pleasure :D
I've done few Mod scenes with my Blythe dolls but never any 1:12th scale.

There are so many wonderful and inspiring Mini Modern bloggers out there...thank you all for sharing in the blogosphere!
Here are just a few, there are more and you can probably find them in my sidebar:
http://minimodern.blogspot.com - a truly devout miniature modernist and collector with exquisite tastes.
http://call-small.blogspot.com/ - Brilliant Miniaturist who never ceases to amaze me.
http://raumfuerraum.blogspot.com/ -What can I say? This dear woman keeps me gobsmacked with her brilliant use of the everyday object.
http://minimodpod.blogspot.com - Another brilliant miniaturist with lots of mod eye candy.
http://amazingminiatures.com/blog/ - Fantaculous MCM furnishings and a sweet and sharing nature.
Hope you will visit some of these fabulous bloggers!

Not that I am giving up on any of the other styles that I love so much... I still enjoy making all things shabby and chic as well as cottage-y and storybook-ish. It's a wide and wondrous world that we can recreate in miniature, no?

Hi Friends, hope you are doing well!
All finished :)
Made from Birch plywood. Shelf and desk are scratch made from bits and pieces of strip wood. The little light is battery operated. I love making roomboxes!

A New Face on Things or The Blogger Rage Epidemic

Seems everyone in blogland is pretty upset with this new interface. Thought I would take a look and see if I dislike it as much as everyone else.
It does seem to be a POS....
Just now, I typed a paragraph and then wanted a photo beneath, so typed paragraph and clicked little pic icon up top...hmmmm pic went above paragraph. DOH

Now, I have worked in graphic design and web development for a number of years...I can fix this, but, honestly...I don't have the flipping time to fool with this...Blogger, stop mucking around, will you?
First, you take our "Friends Connect" followers and fling the non-blogger ones out into the void...now yer messing with posting.

WordPress is looking rather fetching at the moment...

Ahem, the photo above is a little roombox I am working on. It is not 1:12 scale but closer to 1:8 scale. Somewhere between 1:6 and 1:12. For Lati Yellow and or Blythe but a bit shy height-wise for Blythe.
It is further along towards finishing now but I haven't taken pics. I have the window 'glass' cut and in place and all the trim on the inside finished as well as the furnishings.

Hmmm, okay so I WAS able to drag the photo around to wherever I like on the page...I won't lie and say I don't like that...but see, I haven't clicked preview or publish yet...let's see what happens....

Oh, I just noticed a little gear over there on the right...says 'Options'\
I'm thinking this may be a very important clue as to why so many are struggling...take a look at that...the last radio button choice there says "Use <br> tag or "Press "Enter" for line breaks"

One Down, On To The Next!











Good Day Mini Friends! Hope you had a lovely Easter and are having a wonderful week.
The Tree Stump House is finished :) She is going up in my etsy shop today. Will be sold un-furnished. Shipping won't be expensive as this house is very lightweight!
I am currently working on a new project for the Greenleaf Dollhouses Annual Spring Fling Contest. I won't be able to share much with you about the project but I will offer up tidbits and sneak peeks once in a while :D
This is a floor...I added each little floorboard. I like it :)
I will post the tutorial for the vintage scales on Tuesday of next week. I haven't had a chance to do that for you this week.
XO

Hello Friends, hope you are having a lovely week!




Still work to do but it's coming along :D
Not feeling very well at the moment...stupid viruses going around. Off to try and sleep.
