Blue Christmas Miniature Furnished Roombox

It's my favorite time of the year again, and in honor of it I've finished a new roombox for 1:12 scale called "Blue Christmas". I saw some Tilda photos about a month ago and knew I wanted to build a pale blue shabby room for the holidays. Mixing that photo with our own style I think the final result turned out very sweet and I hope you will love it.

The cost is $355 (plus shipping) and can be purchased through email and paypal. or Etsy

** I finally have had a chance to take all new photos. I'm sure you all understand how busy December can be. So here are the new and much clearer pictures of the sweet little shabby roombox 

Fully furnished 1:12 Miniature roombox with two and a partial walls. Trimmed all the way around the edges and made of wood and MDF. Solid and heavy duty, nailed and glued and is not able to be taken apart. The furnishings are all loose and can be moved around. 

Hand painted/stained floor with multiple layers of work to achieve the final look. Pale blue walls with slight dirtying. Baseboard, crown molding, window and door trim has all been slightly aged also. 

Single french door with a pretty jeweled knob and two paneled windows. Beautiful little bed from Vicky at LovejoyBears and Rug from Flora at lacasadellebambolediflora

Nightstand, chair, hand made gifts with shabby ribbon, cradle with a sweet little teddy bear, dollhouse, block wagon, shabby bunny pull toy, side table and beautiful box of decorations are just some of the things we hope will make you smile. The tree has a strand of battery operated lights wrapped around and a wire in the back that connects to a battery pack. It's small enough to be slipped behind the tree. Decorated in gold, pink and silver. 

All of this has been lovingly made in our smoke free studio and is suitable for 1:12 dolls, PukiPuki, Lati White and Sp and possible Lati Yellow and Pukifee. 

Please email me if you have any questions. It is complete and ready to ship... 

Wishing you all the best weekend and holiday season from the Gypsies and my lovely fur helper

Hello November

I can't believe it's November already but it marks the start of my favorite Holiday season and I'm thrilled about that. I've never been a fan of Halloween and spooky decorations but fall leaves and pumpkins, apple cider and sweater weather has always been something I look forward to.

We've decided to move the Gypsy house (again) this year so not only am I working on finishing up orders but I'm also in the middle of packing too.

I've just finished Cheri and Vivienne's orders and am currently working on Emma and Tammy. Melissa and Sophie will be started after the move and I will take one more order between now and the end of the year. Any other orders placed will be started after Christmas.

The little porch is finished and decorated for fall just in time and ready to go. I wanted to share a few photos of it here.

I hope you're all having a wonderful weekend and start to the new month. If anyone needs to get in touch with me email will be the quickest for the next couple of weeks  Back soon xoxox

French Paneled Roombox

I have such a soft spot for french paneled walls and dirty french paneled walls are even better :) 

This sweet over sized roombox sold very quickly. If you'd like to custom order one I have room for one in October before the holiday break. The cost as shown is $275 
You can email me directly if you're interested.

(here is the Etsy shop listing)
The whole thing has been done in a cottage cream paint then dirtied and aged by hand. The floor is a warm honey color and goes with the walls beautifully. Working door 

I have not added crown molding because I wasn't sure if it would take away from the wall paneling, I will leave that up to the buyer and if you'd like the molding I'll be happy to add it. 

The paneled walls are a lot more time consuming so that's why this box is a little more than regular finished roombox price and also why I don't offer them very often :)

This roombox is oversized and will have to be shipped flat. The height from the floor to the top of the wall trim is 17" so it should work for all playscale dolls. 

Made with hardwoods, pine and MDF. This room is ready to ship and will be mailed out within three business days.

Follow your Heart little Jack

We ran across this sweet little fella at a local shop and decided to bring him home and make him a few little treasures before sending him on a far away journey to explore the world... or your house, whichever you choose. We've named him Jack 

He is the softest little creamy colored bear and is ten inches from toes to the tip of his ear. His little ears are lined in a print fabric. He has a pair of soft denim overalls with a pirate print fabric to accent, a vest, corduroy explorer hat and matching jacket and a pair of blue corduroy cargo shorts. He even has a tiny little boy tie for when he's feeling fancy, maybe he's going to tea ;)

Jack has a tiny wooden hand painted and aged chest with paper inside to store his favorite toys or souvenirs from his adventures. We also made him a tiny paper pirate map to lead the way. 

He comes in a pretty blue and brown vintage style suitcase with a handle that doubles as his bed. He has a pirate print pillow case with a pillow inside, a very cozy quilt, a hand tufted cotton mattress that lays in the bottom of the suitcase and a matching bunting banner. 

If you'd like to adopt Jack you can find him in our Etsy shop or you can email me at he's a one of a kind little guy and would be a great holiday treat. 

Hope you're all having a wonderful Friday xoxoxoxo

Fall Roombox Ordering

It's hard to believe that August is almost over and September will be starting soon! I LOVE fall and cooler weather so I am very excited and looking so forward to it and of course I'm always looking forward to the last few months of the year and the fact that I am nearer to the holidays.  

When it comes to commissions and working on orders by month you have to plan things out a little more in advance in a block style format. So things will work a little differently this time of year. There are THREE more slots for roomboxes this year. One more for September and Two for October. Everything will be completed and ready to ship by the end of October/First week of November.

I will be not be taking any custom orders for the months of November or December. The only things that will be in the shop after the middle of October are finished and ready to ship items. Ordering will resume as usual in January.

If you'd like to reserve a slot just email me here and payment is not due until the week before I start your order. I am accepting layaway on all three slots ;)

I can finally say I'm caught up which is a huge relief. It only took me nine months since we moved to get here ;)  I cannot thank everyone enough for being patient. I appreciate it more than you will ever know.

The current work list is: 
Vivienne and Tina (that I'm working on)
Emma and Cheri (next week both will be started)

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend! Sending lots of love xoxoxo

Shabby Sewing

Samar's sewing box is so sweet and I had to share photos. I'll be uploading full photos of it later this week to the "furnished rooms" tab over on the side. Just as I've always said, everything is cuter in miniatures...
