P.S. TSS



"I'd add a pop of colour, either with the use of a large potted palm or other pot plant. Perhaps some artwork...or soften the scene with a throw..."

I was surprised to discover that I actually do not have any miniature throws. This "conundrum" has now put that item on my shopping list. I'm having trouble finding fabric that lays and folds properly in a smaller scale. Anyway, let's see how many posts I can stretch out of this test room...Smiles.

The Goods:
Wheelchair is JUN Planning; Sofa is PRD; Coffee Table is cologne cap with added Plexi top; all accessories are Wright Guide Miniatures, MiniModernistas and run-of-the-mill items from hobby and scrapbook stores.

  1. Maybe a rug? If you can't find the throw.

  2. Sorry to be such a nonce, but what's a Wright Guide Miniature? Is that a Frank Lloyd Wright Guide?

    I'm on the steep learning slope here!

  3. Happy Easter!
    I often wandered how you manage this clever photo arrangement on the blog. I never succeed to get one photo so close to the other in this simple accurate way. This is one of the most difficult things in arranging my Guggle blogspot. Would you reveal the trick?
    Thanks!

  4. Do you know about the miniature fabric sellers? Of course, I can't find the listings for them and it's nearly bedtime, but I can look through my stack of business cards if you want. I've bought from at least 2 dealers at minis shows over the years. They sell fabric and trim for mini projects, nice and thin with patterns scaled for minis. Also velvets and such. I've used some of the velvet pieces for carpets.

  5. It looks great, but can I just say your bath appears to have gotten very soft and squishy? ;-)

    You need throws? Let's talk!

  6. Much better :-) I like the neutral, yet warm and inviting colourscheme, with the little splashes of orange.
    And love the wheelchair; Universal design - now also in miniature!

  11. Hey Neomig,
    Hmm...It might be the template I use. I usually delete spaces between the photos and center them. I know that sounds so web savvy, ey? Chuckles. Megan (aka Mini Dork of Modern Mini Houses) is the true guru who can help you with all things web. Give her a shout and I bet she can diagnose and remedy your photo headache.

  12. Hola Shelly,
    No, I am actually unfamiliar with the "fabric sellers". I'd love to be in the know because I could seriously use their mystical powers. They don't make you promise your first born or anything, do they? Please tell them that I only sacrifice money...Smiles. Seriously, please do share the contacts if you find the info. Sounds like I will be at all the local dollhouse shows this year...

  13. Hey TSS!
    Yes, I was a tad bit lazy, ey? Chuckles. I only redid the living room. In my defense, I had already started deconstructing the 360 house. I know--terrible excuse. I have to find something good to barter for a custom throw...Hmm.

  14. Thanks Pubdoll,
    Ahh, this blog and polarizing scenes are becoming like PB and J, man! Chuckles. I am glad that it meets your approval, friend. Wink and smiles.

  15. Thanks Vanessa,
    I appreciate your compliments. I shall be checking out your blog...

  16. Que pasa, Marisa!
    Thank you much. I, too, hope I find that elusive throw. I could use many more accessories. This collecting thing is a disease...

  17. Hi,
    Here's one I actually had bookmarked in delicious: http://evasetceteraetc.com/

    I'll check through my collected business cards to see if I can find the others when I get home from work.

  18. Oh! Thanks Shelly,
    I will take a peek here shortly. Much appreciated!

  19. A nice "throw" is always an eyeglasses cleaning cloth. i have seen it in white, red, bay blue and black. But you live in the USA where every color can be found.....

  20. I thought there was another site, but I can't find the business card. If I hear of any others, I'll let you know.

  21. Neomig! you beat me to it. Oese once told me the solf dark material that comes in a sunglass case has just the right fluidity for draping.(like Chanel...)

    I also cut up thrift store sweaters for winter scenes, especially cashmere.
    See you soon, so we all agreed on Paris for the NorCal mini meet? Right...;CM

  22. Oh Neomi and Carol, you both beat ME! I made a blogpost for this eyeglassclothes, and now I see it's told to MC really enough! haha.
    So what, here is my post with the eyeglass-cloth. ph!
    Hope you find some, Modern MC and I like both scenes, this one and the one before. It seems honest to me, because sometimes there is such a mood.....
