It's May and I need to replace the Christmas scene! Ya think? Even though I haven't commented on blogs recently (and I do feel guilty about that) I've been checking in. When I first started blogging, I thought I'd post a scene once a week, and when that wasn't realistic, I thought every two weeks, then I thought once a month, then I thought every two months.....Sometimes I'm just not in the mood to create, I'd rather think about it. I've been working on the big blue dollhouse I bought, which is now tan. I've been making tiny little things for the house and I'm not concentrating on any one room, therefore, there aren't any completed rooms yet.
In the meantime, I thought I'd do a scene featuring a table setting that I bought on EBay two years ago. There's a little Chinese, Japanese, and Taiwanese goin' on here. I call it...blending.
The stuff: The only thing worth mentioning are the items I bought on Ebay (placemats, chopsticks, cups and sushi). Everything else is basically from the thrift shop (framed art, vases, umbrellas, red pillow,and "lantern". The rest of the stuff is thrown together.
Well, that's it for now. Meanwhile, I'll continue to work on the house. I'll get back to you before Christmas! :) Just kidding!
I love how you always make an amazing scene out of odds and ends. It looks awesome! I love the little pagoda!ReplyDelete
Thanks Cyd, I really think that's the fun part for me, to re-purpose little crap! LOLDelete
Love it! I was planning to do an Asian fusion scene for Chinese New Year, but right now it's all in a box. This is very inspiring - so many ideas. But still, now I am aiming for Chinese New Year next year!ReplyDelete
Hi Penelope, and thank you! Maybe you should work on your Asian scene now, take pics and post later!Delete
I enjoyed this scene...and I agree that its much easier to think about blogging than to actually do it. I am behind too. Still waiting to see what you have done with the house.ReplyDelete
Thank you! The first room in the dollhouse that I complete will be the foyer and it's almost ready, and if I don't finish it soon, I'll wind up redoing it. I'm already thinking about changing the "wallpaper" to something much bolder.Delete
Your my kinda gal Beany! I am a thrift store hound too, and it just goes to show you how creative second-hand finds can mix and match with natural born miniatures! This is a terrific blending of style, cultures and ingenuity!ReplyDelete
You're so kind! Thank you. My Mom would drag me to thrift shops when I was a kid, but I hated going with her and I wouldn't wear anything she bought me from there. But now.... BARGAINS, FINDS, ONE-OF-A-KINDS, DESIGNER STUFF...Delete
Beautiful scene! I like how open and airy the space is and I especially like the placemat shade! It's great the way the light filters through. :D I understand the blogging dilemma, don't pressure yourself! For me the best thing I've learned is to post when is good for you and everyone will be around to come and see what you've been up too, no matter how much time has past :)ReplyDelete
Thank you, and you're absolutely right about not feeling pressured to post! I know that when I've noticed that someone hasn't posted in a while, I'm just glad to see that they're back. I like to use the IKEA Lekman box because it's so spacious.ReplyDelete
Love this oriental setting!ReplyDelete
Thank you Neomi! It's nice to hear from you.ReplyDelete
