Show and Tell Monday!

This week, I wanted to show my work in progress...

The 1:12 Miniature Pink Door is half completed. I love it... I also love the "transparent glass panel". Of course in 1:12 miniature making, glass would be too heavy to handle, so I made it with polyester sheet. I so love the lacy patterns on the glass panel. It's so me.

The best thing about miniature making is that I get to satisfy all my craving which I don't necessary get to in real life. For example, I want a pink door in real life, but it's not a colour that everyone in the family fancies. If I could, in real life, this door is exactly what I would like to have.

Earlier I made a rose wreath using reindeer moss, but in the midst of decorating, it looks too "christmasy", so I am in the midst of making another wreath for the door :) I wanted a spring feel.

I was also playing around with the chairs. I've not decided whether to use the shabby stool, but I wanted to paint that small chair. I wanted to get some perspective, so I decided to do something fun! I made a poll, to see what colour you think would be nice. At the top right hand corner of my blog, you would see a poll!

I'm so excited. Let's see what the poll reveals...Please help to vote! Thanks :)
