I like bedroom spaces to look serene and like a safe place to escape from the hectic and stressful demands of life. For this miniature scene, I used the bed and linens that were made for the Green Dollhouse. I was pretty happy with how the nightstands (AG Minis) photographed. My intention was for them to give the impression that they were lightbox tables. The light is from the sun shining through the Kaleidoscope House and shimmering through the cube. It was a nice surprise. What wasn't a nice surprise? Discovering that some of the white plastic on my Kaleidoscope House is starting to yellow. Damn. Sunlight is friend and foe.
I put together the second Green Dollhouse last night so hopefully I can find a suitable way to join the two together to make one large residence for my Silver Acorn family.
Let's see...rambling, rambling...Oh! I recently had a bizarre incident at one of the dollhouse and hobby stores that I visit every few months. In general, I keep a low profile in life (big surprise there!) and so I pop in and meekly ask if they have any modern dollhouse items. Typically, whenever I ask this question, the people at the store look at me as if I am a weirdo from planet dumb ass and then as they show me two to three pieces from 1980, they inform me that the hobby is mostly geared toward Victorian or other early period pieces. My response is typical and trademark "me" = smile and nod. However, on this trip when I asked the question, the sales associate turned to another and repeated my inquiry. To my surprise and utter disappointment, the other sales associate said "we don't have anything other than that sectional sofa, but there is a site online called mini modern or something like that where you can probably find some modern dollhouse pieces."
