Teeny Weeny Shabby Streamside Studio 1/4 scale

The tiny shabby streamside studio is coming together seamlessly! I love it.
I made the screen door, trimmed all the windows, painted the porch floor and sculpted the stone foundation.
Here I have the foundation painted and the flower box ready.
I thought I wouldn't be able to get many details inside. But I was able to put curtains on all the windows with the roses on top!  The fireplace mantle has the "tin" tile insert. On top I put a rose painting instead of a mirror. The mirror was too bulky.
I made the chandelier with 6 curled pieces of wire. 3 are painted white and 3 have crystals strung on them. The light bulb is in the middle.
I made the roses with cotton fabric. It's just a fold, twist and roll method.
Upstairs also has curtains.
Before I put the roof on, I scored and carved out the plank ceiling and attached the fabric for the ceiling.
I am putting on the shingles one at a tie. I think it gives it such a sweet look.

The porch posts are toothpicks.
This is one of the 3 chandeliers. This is not a working one. It's just to look cute. There's another nonworking chandelier in the loft.
Tomorrow, I might have this little cutie finished. We'll see.
The real Shabby Streamside Studio belongs to Sandy Foster. You can see it on her beautiful blog My Shabby Streamside Studio.
