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.......!
