Shabby Rose Boutique

Well with the pushing and prodding of a few mini friends I've had to join this world of Blogging! It's like your first day out in a new pair of shoes! I'm sure it will take me a little bit of time to break it in, so please bare with me as I become acquainted with this new forum and learn my way around it.

I've started by adding a picture of a boutique roombox that I've just finished putting together. Well finished.....how finished is anything we do in the world of miniatures? Are we not always adding. moving, rearranging? This roombox actually still needs some type of windowcovering....a picture behind the window of something better to look at than my carousal of tools on the workbench....I also left the one part of the right side wall empty....I'm looking for a special picture or shelf to hang there. I've also left a little bit of room in the shelves and cabinets to add new minis as I acquire them.

Also I am so proud that I now have electricity in a roombox!!!! My first time ever!! I just didn't think I had it in me! What a difference a couple of lights add! It's amazing. This roombox really called for lights because otherwise it would have been so hard for people to see all the detail with all the tiny miniatures. I couldn't have done this without the help of good friend Diana. She posted pictures in an email to me with the step by step process. How much easier could she have made it for me other than hopping on a plane and flying here from New Mexico to show me in person. So thank you Nanner for all your help. I couldn't have done it without you!

This roombox would not have been possible or at least as beautiful if not for all the wonderful miniatures I've collected over the last 6 years from some talented mini friends. Or my "Midget Friends" as my son-in-law calls them! He's just a sweetheart isn't he?

Well I must save some for another day! Now I must get out and learn what I need to know to survive this new and exciting adventure! Maybe I'll even come back to find that someone has read this!!! LOL!

    hugs, Jaime

  2. Your roombox is adorable... for as much as I love modern, I have this guilty pleasure for shabby chic, and you capture it nicely!
