|Travel Agency Roombox by Deb Matunas|
One of the highlights of attending a dollhouse miniature show is seeing the wide range of roomboxes, vignettes, and yes, sometimes even full dollhouses, on display.
Oftentimes the displays are made by members of the miniature club that sponsored
the event. Such is the case with the above roombox. Deb Matunas creates very high quality, incredibly detailed, miniature scenes and the above box is no exception.
I especially **love** that a decorator suitcase is used as the "box". And once again, a few sets of my luggage have found a beautiful forever home. Well done!
Of course, in addition to the display eye candy, there's also some shopping to do!
|Items that insisted on coming home with me ;)|
These lovely miniatures were too adorable to resist! The rocking chair, I'm told, is
made by the company that was the pre-cursor to Bespaq. Bespaq, of course, is
synonymous with superior quality in the dollhouse miniature world.
I wish I knew the maker of this beautifully crafted woven basket. It is about 1 1/4" wide and is very well made. I love woven baskets! In real size, in mini size... I love them all! This one will probably be filled with miniature fruit and adorn my dollhouse kitchen. Or, perhaps filled with "mail" and placed on a shelf next to a desk. Hmmm.... so many possibilities!
|1:12 Peanut Butter, Crisco, and Coffee Mug|
The jar of peanut butter and can of Crisco Vegetable Shortening are made by Cindi's Mini's. The color of the peanut butter is PERFECT! Looks good enough to eat!
I'll put the #1 Grandpa coffee mug in the planned-but-not-yet-created dollhouse den, right next to the laptop and sports and car racing magazines. :)
|1:12 Miniature Shipping Boxes, Ream of Paper|
And now, the office supplies! I nearly flipped a wig when I saw these miniature shipping boxes and ream of printer paper! To call them perfect would be an understatement. The flattened boxes actually unfold to become real, to-scale shipping boxes. The USPS box even has printing on the inside of the 'cardboard' -- just like the real thing!!! My imagination is running amok with all the possible uses for these boxes.... Now I just need to create some tiny shipping labels..... ;)
