A visit to my Brocante shop ( part 2)


Let 's have a look at the inside of the Brocante .





The inside is actually just a few centimeters deep. Creating the illusion that there are things inside the shop was a lot of fun.













To the back wall of the shop I decoupaged pictures of painting and and pieces of furniture. Some pictures were used twice with double sided sticky foam between them to get a 3 D effect.






To make things a bit more realistic I added two bits  of real furniture : a small table and a chair. I made sure that the items on the table could be seen from the outside as well.
On the chair are some mini hats.  

But the best items are the big frame standing behind the chair and the cat for they add depth. 

In the big frame is a piece of mini embroidery. I started on a whole painting and when I was about half done I spilled coffee allover it. The stains could not be removed  and I put it away in a box. But with the stains I think is the perfect brocante item and I am really glad it has a good home now.







I love having cats in my  dollhouses 






My first try making a geranium  ...........needs a bit more sunshine I think.
