Casey's gift of Wicker Chair

Todays post will be to show you a picture of a wallhanging shadow box I put together a few weeks ago. This project was started because I was the absolute luckiest winner of a handcrafted wicker chair that was created by the wonderful miniaturist and blogger, Casey from Casey's Minis. I was thrilled to win this beautiful chair and matching ottoman. I had envisioned it in a garden setting roombox and had all intentions of putting together a scene with that theme. But as I started to go thru my workroom looking for things to use things started to develop on a different plane. I started to find things that made me think more of a comfortable reading area. Surrounded by a few plants, shelves filled with some more wonderful handcrafted miniatures. Another area to display some delightful things I've been given or made myself. Hence this little reading corner. A place to put up your feet and relax looking thru a miniature magazine or reading your newest novel!
Don't forget to give the picture a poke to enlarge the picture for a better look see! My youngest daughter bought this shadowbox for me for Christmas a few years ago. I'm so happy to finally have scenes to fill it!
The upstairs room in this wall hanging box is not completed yet. I'm still looking for something to place in the right hand corner. So as soon as I find or create that perfect thing for that corner I will take better pictures of that room. Already I have many things in there that have been given to me by some wonderful miniature artists that I'm so lucky to call my friends!
I hope you're having a wonderful day!
