A Tiny Room Box & Dollhouse Miniatures FLASH SALE!

Collecting by Design Team Member Rhonda Thomas

Oh my… this is so detailed and beautifully done! Nice job, Rhonda! Especially when you consider this is a HALF SCALE room box, so only 1:24 scale!

Let’s start with some info from Rhonda’s blog post:

It’s no secret that I am a collector of many things. From all things French, ephemera galore, doll heads, ledgers, smalls, and everything in between, my studio is covered, top to bottom. Even the ceiling has found treasures on it. So the idea of creating a mini space full of collections was just too perfect to pass up.

The new Industrial Bricks 6×6 Paper Pad was the inspiration behind my project along with this Half Scale Tall Corner Room Box.

I grew up with books, lots and lots of books. I could never have too many and the older they are the happier I become. I used pages from a vintage French dictionary to make the pages for my mini books. I used five “mini” folded pages in each “book” and a dab of glue. The easiest part was having the covers already finished with the help of this Jules Verne Tiny Books Half Sheet.

There’s so much more to see on Rhonda’s blog post and/or her supply list. And don’t forget to come back to see some new goodies (some used by Rhonda in her scene) and the FLASH SALE!

New & Back in Stock Products!

Two items used in Rhonda’s artwork (and a third that is the same 1:24 scale)!
