I have something a little different to show you today... a miniature scene.  I saw something similar on Pinterest and knew that I wanted to make my own version of a mini laundry room. 
 
 
 
This is a large detergent bottle and it took me over two months just to use the soap.  I've been collecting miniatures for most of my life, so I only had to dig out a few boxes to find some goodies to put inside my laundry bottle.
 
 

 
 
I just cut out the front of the bottle, using the label as my guide.  I also cut out the back so that I could insert the octagon window.  It was pretty dark inside the laundry without the window. 
 

 
 
I added a wallpaper border and put a tile floor in the bottom.  I wanted to wallpaper the whole bottle, but those curved walls were too tough to paper (I even tried using cloth for flexibility) and I settled on just a border. 

 
There isn't much square footage in a detergent bottle so I wasn't able to fill it with as much as I would have liked.  I'm sure I'll add more items as I come across them in my stash-o-stuff.

 
This little cat is signed and dated on the underside "SM 1980."  I have several cats (and doll figures too) made by this artist, Sylvia Mobley, including two custom made cats of Darcy and Grover, my first cat babies that I had in the 70's and 80's.
 
This was a fun and quick project (after I used the soap) and I enjoyed reminiscing through some of my miniature collection. 
 
I'm thinking that I need to make a sewing room next.......!

  2. Oh Jeanie that is the cutest darn thing I have ever seen! A sewing room would be adorable too. The laundry bottle is so perfect for the mini laundry room, but would you use a different container for the sewing room or not?

  10. This is the most clever thing I have ever seen! I adore it and want to make one also. I hope you wouldn't mind. I have a detergent bottle waiting for me now as I had planned on trying something from the book, Fantastic Recycled Plastic by David Edgar and Robin A. Edgar.
