Roombox Present

I just finished a room box for my Mother In Law Pat.
She is a wonderful lady and has been so generous with us, and tireless in her love for her family.

The Little House I started a while back after seeing the wonderful 1/144 scale houses that some very talented fellow blogger's made. I could not afford the kit so I made a little version of my own, and found out that 1/144 scale is not my favourite scale to work in.lol

I was inspired to make this room box by the Thorne Room is Chicago. My husband Dave and I have been to Chicago 3 times and I would love to go back. I purchased the book on the rooms when we were there, and I am so glad that I did as it's a wealth of inspiration.
I even made a curtain cornice, and put in a picture of an English country garden.
I made the bread when my nieces were over and we were all playing with clay.
The bottom silhouette  is of Jane Austin, Pat Love's her movies as I do. I painted the chairs white and distressed them. And can you guess what the cushion and drapes are made out of???
Paper!!!

This verse is special to Pat and also myself. I printed off a larger version for me and put it up on the wall facing my desk so I can see it and be inspired.
I even put clear plastic in all the frames, fancy.lol
(i just realised that i miss spelled voice as vice) oops.)
I had of course to include some vintage mail, and roses that I made.
The desk I already had, and I think it looks great with the other pieces. I love to mix things up.
This is my before, it's a room box that I purchased at Ikea many many years ago. I already had the windows, and the floor is Popsicle sticks stained. The walls are dry wall paste.

Thanks for looking in on my little room box. I loved making it and plan on making more in the future.
