More on the French shop

I know I have been pretty quiet of late, but I have been working on my minis. My husband and I had a week of holidays at the snow (there wasn't a lot of snow, but lots of sunshine!) so I took the opportunity to get some mini-ing done. I don't seem to be having much luck with blogger this afternoon - my photos refuse to upload. Will try to upload them later for you to see.

I have made some progress on the French shop. I made some books and filled the bookcase for the salon with them and some figurines I've painted in the past. Also antiqued a bird cage for the table. Also covered a Bespaq chair and sofa but need some cushions now for the sofa.

I have almost finished the study. I am wondering if the floor needs to be paler and maybe dirtier?

The dining room, bathroom, entry and salon are almost done, as is the kitchen, save for a few minor items. I am not sure these will ever be finished - the search for elusive mini homewares is a long and difficult one!


  1. I love the desk, and I really like the way you've made the floor plaking a bit uneven. Maybe you could sand back some of the 'wear areas' a little on the floor but it's up to you really. I'm sure that from time to time the floors would have been freshly painted and not doubt were well scrubbed in some households.

  2. I think that floor looks great, I am going to do a painted wooden floor in my shop like that. Perhaps a small, pale rug like an Aubusson would finish it off nicely?

  3. Love the setting. Everything is beautiful. I like Norma's suggestion of distressing the floor a little in specific wear patterns.

  4. Este rincón del escritorio está muy completo, no le falta detalle. Me encanta.
