Let me show you...
How utterly exquisite is this??? The shabby shop was made by Renate Stettler of Atelier Art Miniature, I have borrowed her photos. If you love what you're seeing here, you should totally check out the Greetings Card Shop that Renate made... when I clapped eyes on it this famous quote sprang to mind...
"How do I love thee? Let me count the ways."
Still on the shabby theme, how utterly gorgeous is this custom-made pinboard? Miniatryrmama has an Etsy store where you can enquire to have something made just for you. I bet this one didn't take long to sell!
Wouldn't it be wonderful to relax at this shabby chic desk, picture courtesy of Synovve Knudsen.
Or better still, sew in this wonderful fabric-filled room made by Keera who can be found here.
Of course, a home - no matter what its size - is never complete without a fur-baby or two. My heart literally skipped a beat when I discovered the world of Kerri Pajutee, who designs and makes the most beautiful animals in 1:12 scale. This photo, courtesy of Kerri, paints a thousand words.
I had to choose a photo of dogs, of course! But Kerri makes a wide range of animals including equine, farmland and one of my favourite categories - Woodland. Go check out this page!!!
Okay, this next one is for you quilt lovers, of which I know there are a few!
Oh gosh, can you imagine creating this? How full would that swear-jar be?! This stunner was made by Cheryl Kerfoot, and I tracked her down to her Flickr page, here. She actually down-sized a regular quilt pattern to make this version!
I found this most wonderful photo on Pinterest and have been attempting to track down the creator, but alas to no avail. I usually don't share photos without giving credit to the author or designer, but this miniature quilt is so amazing that I want to share it with you. If you know who made it, please share so I can give them the credit!
That teeny tiny quilting just astounds me, what do you think?!
I could go on forever showing you photos I've collected, but I'll just leave you with one more of my favourites and it is very French Provincial in it's Christmas theme...
This delectable darling is the skilled work of Teresa Martinez of Tiny Ter Miniatures who photographs her work so beautifully that the pictures are a work of art in themselves!
If you'd like to check out more miniature inspiration, you can find my Pinterest 'Miniature' board, here.
There will be more miniature in my future, as Mr SUDs works with a lady who is an enthusiast and belongs to VAME (Victorian Association of Miniature Enthusiasts) and she kindly gifted me a little kit to see if I enjoyed the hobby. I'll post some pics when I've made it - I'm a bit apprehensive to be honest!
Until next time - enjoy the little things! (I'm winking at ya!)
