    A Tiny Fairy House, New Miniatures – and ALL Kitchen Minis on Sale!

    Filed under Fairy Garden, Laura Carson, Miniatures, Shannon Cooper

    The Half Scale Rectangular Bay Window is back in stock and that makes it the perfect time to revisit the Fairy House that Design Team Member Shannon Cooper made from it back in 2018! Looking in the windows of this fairy house shows all kinds of kitchen preparations being made (and tiny plates and silverware stacked up) and there are a couple new options for tiny white dishes:
    White Dishes & Silverware Place Setting
    Small White Bowl & Plate Set
    And check below: These 2 new miniature dish sets are part of the Flash Sale!

    I have always loved this sweet fairy project by Shannon! From the tiny picnic basket filled with fruit to using the Half Scale Tall Corner Room Box as a platform to make the project portable (and keep all the mossy bits around the exterior contained/intact).

    Here’s some text from Shannon’s blog post to start a tour:

    Have you seen the new Half Scale Tall Corner Room Box? It is a wee thing measuring just 6″ tall x 6″ wide x 4″ deep. A perfect size that doesn’t take up too much space. Will it become a pint-sized Christmas scene with a decorated tree? A minute library that fits in your hand? I almost want to upholster another chaise lounge and make an elegant sitting room (and then fill it with cats). So many tiny possibilities! If that doesn’t have you grinning ear to ear, there’s a second Square Half Scale Corner Room Box that’s even smaller! I know, right? Deep breaths!

    After my excitement ebbed a little, I decided to turn the room box into a house fit for a fairy. It seemed appropriate.

    Great project, Shannon! And I love all those ideas for tiny projects!

    Here’s a link to all the supplies Shannon used, and a link to the original post with more info!

    What else is new today? Rustic Miniatures!

    I should say new or back in stock: The Miniature Rustic Brooms are also back in stock and they too are in Shannon’s Fairy House! (Check out that link too for another idea: Shannon used some of the bristles from a broom as tree limbs.)

    Beside the items highlighted below, see all 12 items!
