Life in the big city, or not! I've always thought it would be so cool to live in the heart of a big city, but I guess I'm destined to live and thrive in suburbia. So, I brought the skyscrapers indoors. I printed out a picture from the Internet and pieced six pictures together to create a ceiling to floor, wall to wall city scape.
|This coaster on the wall is metallic and reflective, but doesn't|
show in the pics, unfortunate, because it's really beautiful..
|The paper is fan folded for dimension, but, once again,|
it doesn't really show in the pics.
I was tempted to retake the pictures, because I didn't capture it like I wanted, but no time. I'm off to the BAHAMAS for a week! YEA BABY! Leaving tomorrow!

Love, Love,Love it! Great idea with the skyscrapers and cool grey stripes! Awesome love seat from minisx2. Have a great time in the Bahamas. Don't forget your sun screen!ReplyDelete
Glad you like it! I just went to Target and got some SPF30, instead of my usual SPF15, I know it's blazin' over there!Delete
Un gran realismo, me encanta.ReplyDelete
Yolanda, muchas gracias me allegro de que te guste.Delete
Great scene, what a good idea to use the skyscrapers :D!! Love the seat, it is a beauty!ReplyDelete
I wish you a nice holiday in the Bahamas!!
Thank you! Patie did a great job on the love seat. When I saw it on Etsy,I thought the cushions were upholstered, but they're wood, and she advertised it as being able to cover the cushions with fabric to change the look. I think it was a great purchase.Delete

Thanks Mandy, I hope to find some cool little mini items even if I have to resort to key chains and magnets!ReplyDelete
Wish I could go with you! Have lots of fun! I always love looking at your pictures and reading your blogposts. It reminds me of a place where I would have lived in my early 20s. It is fascinating to read where the items in your rooms originated. Thanks for listing my blogpost on your sidebar. Love your blog.ReplyDelete
I'm back and I had a glorious time! Thank you for your comments. I would have loved a place like this when I was in my 20s! I actually did have stripes on the wall that I created with metallic tape because I couldn't paint the apartment walls.ReplyDelete
Did I let you know how much I liked your two last scenes? I got inspired by your turqoise!ReplyDelete
Thank you! I think turquoise must be my second favorite color! Now I need some in my wardrobe. Always a reason to shop!Delete
This is awesome. I love those skyscrapers! So cool!! I'm stealing your idea of the cabinet out of the iPhone box. Brilliant. I've had my laying around and hadn't figured out how to use it. Love it!ReplyDelete
Thanks Mini Dork! Yeah, those are great little sturdy boxes. I have another one that I'll get around to using at some point.ReplyDelete
I have spent hours reading through your blog. Another amazing room :)ReplyDelete
