Wall Shelf with Lined Letter Baskets and Writing Table

Just finished a project I was working on before vacation…whew, lot's of details here. The wall shelf has 3 line baskets, stationery, a stack of tied letters and an open envelope and a few more letters. I also included a vintage style "letters" sign which is can be removed. The table is a redo from House of Miniatures, both are painted with Annie Sloan Chalk paint in Old White and lightly distressed. I think they look great together, but I haven't decided if I will sell them individually or together as a set. A few accessories to the table and the look will be complete!

Lots of goodies inside the baskets (included but can be removed)

The set looks great together, not sure if I will sell together or individually

A Visit to the Smithsonian…looking for minis

Good morning!
I am happy to be back. Took a little break to hang out with my family and vacation. A wonderful trip to New York and Washington. New York… WOW! This California girl was overwhelmed! So many things to see, places to go and people, people everywhere and all night and morning long, I don't know how they do it!
After a hectic, but fun time in New York, we took the train to Washington. I could not wait to hit up the museums. The first stop, National Museum of American History. Of course, I was looking for minis. My 6 year old daughter told me to close my eyes and guided me to a dollhouse full of minis. I must admit, I thought there would be tons of minis, we only found one house. I took a few images to share with you and found a few things I am going to try to make for the shop.
Next up: Two more things to finish for the shop and I will be open for business. Enjoy the images, and again I am happy to be back and working on minis.
