Time Travels

It's been a busy weekend of miniature-making and scene setting! I have been putting together my very first swap parcel for studioseven and I picked up a few papers and laser cut wood decorations from a scrapbook store.

This scene is a step outside of my comfort zone in many ways. A while back I asked my husband to pick out a sheet of scrapbook paper that he liked, and I told him I would create a room around it. Kind of like a self-imposed challenge. He picked out an historical looking old map design. I had some ideas for it, but nothing I owned would really work with it. Then for our anniversary, he bought me a set of Mission-style living room furniture. I wanted to use it, but it was a bit over sized for most of what I owned, and a completely different style. Today, when I saw this laser-cut clock face, I was inspired to try everything together. I wanted to create a well-traveled collector's living room with a modern design. I used the Ikea Lekman room box (again) mainly because of the open space, and I like the look of the clock with a translucent background. Of course I wasn't able to photograph it before it got dark, so I only got a few decent photos. I am happy with how it turned out, and it really reflects my husband's style. Challenge complete :)

Mission style furniture set from Bookcase from The Dollhouse Emporium. Side table is an upside-down votive holder from Pier 1. Lamp from Call of the Small giveaway. Re-Ment accessories from PlayScale Minis. Clock face by Kaisercraft.


  1. If there is such a thing, I think the room looks quite masculine. Did you have your Hubby in mind when you decided on the elements?

    Nice job =0)

  2. Yes, exactly :) He wanted to move in. Like I said, it was a bit of a departure from my usual style. He kind of inspired this room.

  3. It looks like a place where my husband would like as well. Great job! It looks cozy.

  4. Thank you Mad for Mod! A miniature man-cave/study :)

  5. Definitely has a nice masculine touch to it. I love that clock. Very cool!
