My Doll House Minature projects

A new recliner chair I made from a tut


This was BIG challange for me. I found the instructions very hard to follow!  My cushions are not according the the tut. I had to make my own style. I had lots of problems fitting it right. It does work to sit upright and recline. Anyway, I am pleased with my first attempt. I used the faux leather from an old vest I got at a thrift store. It was very light and soft and easy to work with.

To my hubby on Valentine's Day!

  Happy Valentine's Day!!
He was very touched by this and  I was over joyed!

    *click on the pic to see them larger.

I made this from from a wooden book box.
At the dollar tree I found the 
 perfect card- tri folded so I had a cover, a verse for the inside
left wall and another design for the right wall
 and on the back table too.


A close up of the table:
chocolates, a Valentine's card, perfume and and a box of red  roses,
another gift bag, wine cheese and crackers.
 
 

This is the card I bought him on the left to go with the book and
 I will attach it to the back.

(I photoshopped the title.. shhhh I have to put one on.)
