When I first started trying my hand at making something in miniature(before sculpting) I came up with an idea of making a perfume shelf. I had so much fun putting this together even if I didn't know exactly what I was doing! As you can see I didn't use wood glue which was a big mistake. The wood on the back side has split over the years. I didn't realize either that you shouldn't really have a piece like this too glossy or it will not look right. I added a few images that I decoupaged and really loved how that turned out!! I have learned so much since this first attempt! Thank goodness!!! This piece is what began my addiction to miniatures!!! My obsession is still growing!!


  1. I love your perfume shelf Patty. I love finding some of my earlier attempts at different mini projects. I hope you are having a great weekend. Hugs~ Kim

  2. Isn't it wonderful to have 1st pieces lying around ? It brings back fond thoughts about why we began what has now become an obsession for some of us.

    I am very impressed with your 1st attempt Mine was nowhere near as accomplished as these. I can see why it started the craze for you. Frame this up and put it near where you work on your minis :). It's an inspiring piece!

  3. This is beauiful, Patty and even the crack has a charm to it.

  4. This is gorgeous, what a great first attempt.

  5. Amiga, amei o seu blog,sou fascinada por miniaturas, muito fôfas, desculpe que entrei sem bater, é que a porta estava aberta, eu também deixei a porta aberta, para voce se energizar e se tornar um cristalzinho.
    Já estou te seguindo.

    Bom final de semana
