Zakka Dollhouse Miniatures

My recent completed piece of work is largely based on the zakka theme which I love deeply in my heart and soul. This piece of work is inspired by bits and pieces of ideas that I bookmarked in my zakka themed magazine. Plus, I also often day-dream about having a shop or a small living space, with this functional ladder to display some unique trinkets ;) Just google to look at images of ladders and how they are used in home decor. It's amazing!

I even made my own little scallop bowl just because I cannot find one to my liking. Spools of thread in complimenting shades of blues and cream fill into this cute bowl.


As I worked on this piece, I realized that there can be so many ways to decorate this ladder, so I may come up with a few different one if I have enough time :)


The oh so familiar hydrangea makes another appearance in this piece of work, but I've experimented with new colours, and painting techniques with this. I've often made purple, pink and blue hydrangeas, but this time round I've tried to make a olive green hydrangea with purple shades in it, which is often seen in zakka arrangements. 

Some of you may find it strange to see an "&" wooden ornament in arrangement, but for those who are familiar with the zakka decoration style will know this exist! :) 

I hope you enjoy browsing my little piece of art....

On a separate note, I'm leaving for my holidays this weekend 4-13 August. :) I have been contemplating for a long time if I should carry my heavy camera along, but I think I will to capture some scenery of the nature which I will be visiting! 

My shops will stay open while I am away, but I will only process the orders when I am back. Apologies for any inconvenience caused, see you all later!
