New Spring Minis, A Petite Pink Villa Art & Sale!

Filed under Miniatures, Nichola Battilana


Some bright spring colors should help spice up this month (mid-winter? sorry guys but I’m not even sure what year it is). And beside that sweet artwork by Nichola Battilana at right, there are some grass green & yellow daffodils below, too!

 
A Petite Pink Villa

Nichola is so clever! She turned a Frame Front Room Box on its side, and added a cropped Theatre Francais Facade to the top of it, and turned it into a 2-story half-scale villa!

I’m sorry, what did you say? You didn’t know that the Frame Front Room Box came with windows? Well… it doesn’t! Nichola had her fairies busy, busy cutting holes on the side and back of the box so that she could put in 2 styles of Rectangular Windows! They look great and add some light inside the villa.

The pink bunting, flowers, curtains and ribbons may be a bit dramatic… but if you’re going on a romantic getaway isn’t that exactly what you want? What I wouldn’t give for a weekend in a private pink villa, sipping tea, eating sweets, reading, and snuggling by candlelight. *dreamy sigh*

The table and chairs, as well as the china cabinet are made of chipboard, and assemble quite easily. I’ve kept them simple with a coat of paint and a snip of paper, but I’m certain with a bit of ingenuity they would provide a solid base if you wanted to be a bit more elaborate. Tiny cushions on those seats would be absolutely darling.

Before we go upstairs, grab a tiny book from the bookcase and let’s head up the wee ladder. It’s so cute up here that my camera is jealous and refusing to show just how sweet it is. There’s a little bed for getting cozy, maybe reading a book, maybe do a bit of romantic snuggling *wink wink*, or just for having sweet dreams. And let’s not forget that Gold Candleholder to read by.

I love Nichola’s mix of scales, with buttons and spools stacked up as end tables.

See everything Nichola used to make A Petite Pink Villa in the Supply List.

Note that a few of the items Nichola used have sold out, but I added some substitutes to the SALE inspired by this artwork (Written Memories 12×12 Paper Set for the calligraphy wallpaper, Spring Green Lichen Mix for the moss… more info on the extras is below in the sale section).

Yes, I may be pushing the season a bit, but not by much!
