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...

September Roombox Slots




** these do not need to be paid for today, payment (or half ) will be due the end of August. **

I will be taking TWO orders for the month of September only. These can be purchased through the Etsy shop. Mini boxes or Blythe scale. With a roof or without and furnished mini rooms too. From this point on I will only have two spaces for each month so that I have time to build additional items for the shop.

Please let me know early if you want one of these two so I can put you down on the list.

Please email me with any questions or concerns. xoxoxoxo

Roombox Sale!!


Starting tonight for the next two weeks I am having a roombox sale. 

The two completed roomboxes in the shop have been marked down. The 1:24 scale box is $95 and the Blythe box is now on sale for $195

Basic kits are marked down to $85 and there's no limit so if you've been wanting two kits, now's the time to order. These will take one week to complete/ship. 

The new "complete" kit with the additional window (if wanted), wainscoting and chair rail is marked down to $110 for the duration of the sale. They will go back to full price after that

The sale doesn't apply to custom or furnished roomboxes but everything in stock and the kits. There's alot going on here, I'm shaking things up a little and will be changing the way orders are done. I'll update soon.... 

Have a wonderful week xoxoxox

The Little Blue Cottage Furnished..

As you know, The Little Blue Cottage sold and the lady who purchased the house also wanted it furnished. I'm sure she had no idea how long it would take for me to get it all put together but these things are sometimes just out of my control. I wanted everything to be perfect and I do love the way the final house came together.

I want to take a few minutes to share photos of it with you all and to thank her a million times over for being so patient while we poured our hearts into this little project, hopefully it will bring her and her family so much joy. And I hope you all will enjoy seeing the final result <3<3

So welcome one final time to the Little Blue Cottage.... 









Please.. come inside :)

( Oh and to my darling friend Vicky Lovejoy, Please tell me you can make another of these mug racks? It was perfect for the space)

Be Kind to Others


(In looking for a photo for this blog post I found this adorable children's art print and it can be found here at RoseHill Design Studio on Etsy )

Be kind to others, it so simple and I am constantly reminded of it and so happy and thankful to see it on a daily basis. It may be something so simple as the man who held the door for me the other day at the mall and then smiled the sweetest smile and told me to have a wonderful day, or a message from a friend but the kindness makes and impact on me. If we all focused on being kind to those who were in our lives, we'd all be better off and much happier. 

With normal life stress, being so busy lately and being a "little" (ok a lot) behind on custom orders I was feeling so overwhelmed and down on myself the other night and I just went to sleep feeling discouraged.  When I woke up the next morning I had a convo in the Etsy shop from a stranger who had just discovered our little shop. It was the type of  message that comes on a dark night when you need encouragement to keep going and I'll tell you the honest truth, I was ready to stop building and stop creating all together. It was her taking the time to write a stranger and say something kind, something she didn't have to say that gave me a little nudge to keep working. Now, it may not have seemed like a lot to her, but to me that next day, it meant the world. So it's kindness that we should all be so thankful for in our own lives and also share with others. 

A smile to a stranger, holding the door, taking time to message a friend, or maybe send a surprise package.. they may seem like no big deal to you but you never know what they might do for the other person. 

Wishing you all a wonderful week ahead, sending love your way ....  xoxoxoxo

Feeling Blue


I've just finished a new Playscale room for the shop with a pale blue floor and the last remaining piece of my favorite vintage paper. The opposite wall is painted in the same color blue as the floor but the floor has heavy aging/dirtying. I think it turned out very sweetly like a little cottage. The exterior is painted in a cottage cream with white trim inside and out.  This is a one of a kind box in 1:6 scale and ready to ship next week. It is currently listed in the shop so you won't have to wait the usual six weeks for a custom order. 

Unfortunately I cannot accept layaway on this box but if you would like to use the Summer layaway option please place a custom order in my shop. If interested in purchasing this little room you can see it in the Etsy Shop or feel free to Email me JoyfulGirlGypsyH@aol.com 

Hope you're having a beautiful weekend xoxoxox
