The Shoppe fills up

I visited my local Doll House Shop and found a few things to put in my Hat Shop. I found some shelving, a chevel mirror, a wall shelf and an easel for a picture frame. They are in the roombox now. I will have some "refining to do and my husband is going to spray paint all the white items a solfter ivory color to look better with the trim on the top of the wall.
I am going to let the room box rest now while I think over what I will do next. And while I wait for my husband to spray paint the furniture I want done. Meanwhile I plan to work on a quilt that needs mending and get back to my journal. So probably I won't be doing any talking about doing any doll house fixing up or artwork for awhile.

Mini Monday

So finally a Monday with actual miniature stuff.
I was able to work a bit yesterday, between customers in my real life antique shop. I added trim to the top of shop walls.
I have finally decided it will NOT be a dress shop BUT instead just hats and lingerie. I have lots of hats and plan to make some lingerie from patterns I have found.
Since I had planned to make it a dress shop I was going to need a dressing room and had temporarily borrowed a screen from my doll house to serve that function. But I don't think I will
need one now. So that can go back to the doll house. I had already taken these pictures so it is included
I found some appropriate pictures for the walls. I have put up three, the others will have to wait until I find some shelving I like, to hold all the hat boxes. Then if I still need something on the wall they can go up.

For some reason these pictures are all washed out looking and I didn't even use a flash. I will try again tomorrow to get better color. My camera has been acting up a bit. I hope it is not dying.
I have to admit I am not thrilled with the look of it yet. I think that piece of furniture that is presently holding fabric may go..(it is too clunky looking).... And I need to do something with the floor. And I have to find the table and chairs to use, they are somewhere up in my studio I know.
So right now it is just a box holding the stuff I have made and collected up.

I don't think I will get much done on the shop today because I have a lot of other stuff to do. But check back. You never know.
