A Cottage Roombox

Playscale sized roombox finished and ready to ship. Two walls, can be nailed and glued in place or shipped flat so that you can take it apart whenever you want to. I have not attached these walls yet to allow for international shipping if needed. Flat shipping is always the cheapest. 

Cottage style roombox with a "reclaimed" board style wall that has been whitewashed and ever so lightly distressed. Matching wainscoting on the side wall and the prettiest blue cottage floral paper you've ever seen. Large multi pane window. Trimmed with flat baseboard to match the country paneled wall theme. The floor is dirtied and done with layers and layers of paint and stain and hand sanded. I love the way it turned out. The exterior walls are painted a gray blue to match and everything is trimmed in white. 

If you have any questions about the room please let me know. You can email me or message me on Etsy. 

Hope you're having a wonderful week xoxoxox

Maileg Charm

If you haven't heard of Maileg then you're missing out. We absolutely adore the entire line and every piece I've been lucky enough to see in person. They are so sweet and I'm thrilled that some of them work so well with my miniatures and our roomboxes. I'm also so thankful to now be a Maileg retailer here in the US. I will be offering the products here on the blog for mail order. Below are a few of the items I'll be offering and of course if you'd like any other ones not shown, please just email me and I'll see what I can do. 

Read more about this magical company here on their site.

We've been busy this week getting a crop of berries ready for the shop. Fancy beading ready for a tea party or farmer's market for your favorite little one's kitchen. I'll be adding a few more kid sized play food items to the Etsy store this week so stay tuned 

They're also making me dream of warmer weather and sunshine... 
Hope you're having a wonderful weekend and staying warm. xoxo

A New Year...

As much as I've loved this past year, I always am thankful for a fresh start of a new year. A clean slate. Time to reflect on things you might be wishing you'd gotten around to the past year and a new chance to make a few resolutions for the new one.

This past year has been filled with blessings. good health, an amazing family, lots of smiles, a wonderful business that I enjoy so much and the opportunity to not only create but to meet so many amazing people through it. I'm truly thankful every day.

We've started off the new year playing with miniatures, making plans for new projects, trying to get the studio space organized and dreaming of so many exciting things that are coming in the next few months. I do hope it all comes together so I can share all of those things with you all. I believe if you keep dreaming and making steps towards making those a reality, eventually they all come true.

The blog and web domain are now linked together so that if you type in the blogspot address or just you'll get me either way. As little as I know about coding and html it's such a nice feature and I'm happy to have been able to integrate them both so easily. I'm also hoping to add a web shop feature here on the blog later this year but that's a whole new thing I know nothing about :) Thank heavens for Google right?

I want to wish you all a beautiful and blessed New Year from all of us here at the Gypsy Heart house. May your minds be creative and your hearts filled with love. I look forward to sharing this upcoming year with all of you.  xoxoxoxo

New Projects

I had a customer email me asking for a roombox copy of one she'd seen built in another country. Usually I am very careful about making copies of other artists work but I do understand that sometimes when other countries and shipping are involved it's just not always possible to get what you want. Even though I'd never built one like that before I'm willing to try anything once (or twice in this care) So we made our own version of what she'd asked for and it turned out well I think.

As I was building it, I loved it so much and so did my little angel so it just so happens we built her one too. Right under her nose I might add! She thought it was for a customer but on Christmas morning it was waiting for her. It was built custom size for Hazel Village animals and Maileg tiny mice.

I wanted to share a few photos of the extra one too. You should see the tiny mice in that little cradle! It's too sweet for words. I enjoy building for customers but something about the freedom when you're building for yourself is nice too. I can go as shabby as I like or put flowers in a handmade window box a little haphazardly and it's just alright :)

Everything was handmade here except for the bench which is by Maileg and the little cradle was a lucky antique fine and dark (slightly rusted) metal a coat of primer, fresh paint and a little brown and it's a dream.

I hope you'll enjoy the photos and I also hope maybe you had an unexpected surprise or two this year? Wishing you all lovely week and a blessed New Year! xoxoxoxo

Happiest Holidays

Hello dear friends! It's been so long since I've had a few extra minutes to myself to write and keep up with things, visit friends blogs, new projects etc. Moving right before Thanksgiving and then throwing the house back together while finishing orders and planning for the Holidays has been a bit hectic to say the least.

Christmas has passed and I can say this year was one of my favorites. I think everyone had a great time and I'm always thankful we were healthy, happy and able to be together.  I am looking forward to a few days of rest and a wonderful start to a New Year.

I'll be here working on new projects, trying to organize our studio/craft room and sharing a few photos along the way. I do hope you'll share your new projects with me also. See you soon!

Wishing you the happiest holiday season with those you love...
