'Closing Curtains' for the Fairy's Nook!

Hello my dear friends,

It has been a long week and I still can't believe that the Fairy's Nook is finally finished. Another project comes to it's end. It does make me feel sad especially when you are enjoying it. But then I always look forward to a new one. I also wanted to welcome two new followers of my blog; Whinsy and Deborah. Welcome!



So here is the Fairy's Nook! The last time that I blogged, I posted about the completion of The Fairy's Garden Open Air Theater. Today I will be showing you the upper room fully decorated will unusual pieces. Being a Fairy's room I wanted to add something a bit different than the usual miniatures. I wanted to add some full size pieces. I don't know how I am going to explain this. Usually fairies are much smaller than us humans. In this miniature project I wanted that the human world takes part in it. My little Fairy Brier is quite a collector of human lost things.

I first made the furniture for the room. I first started with the fire place which I made out of balsa wood and painted it. Then I did the little table and stool. I painted it with forest colors. The fairy's bed was made out of flower petals and soft moss. Then I started adding some human lost things like screws, buttons, coins, safety pins, old thimbles, wooden thread spools, a pocket watch, lens, old stamps, children's wooden toy blocks, nuts and wild berries.

I have also made some polymer clay miniatures for the Fairy's Nook like small canisters, tea set and fairy's food. I have made some tools and small fairies for the scene. For the windows I used woven sack material. They where the right size to be used as curtains. 

Adding lights was quite a problem. I really didn't know what I was going to add. I have found this floor lamp and adapted it for a fairy.  First I painted it then I added some petals around the shade to make it look like flowers.

Piece by piece I managed to fill in this good sized room. All the pieces that I wanted to add, fitted in perfectly. Fairy Brier looks very happy. Here are some pics of the whole finished room.

All furniture and miniatures have been hand made by me.

I hope you have enjoyed this project. 

I have some new hand painted miniatures available now at my Etsy shop My Miniature World Shop

Here are the new pieces which are made out of white metal and pewter.



 





 Please keep tuned for my next project. Most probably I will be working on two projects. One of them is the renovation of my Toll House and the other one will be a new project. 

So take care and see you real soon.

Hugs,
