Hallway vignette completed

by brae  

The balcony railing is still a work in progress so this upstairs 'room' isn't yet complete, but I have finished the vignette that will sit to the left of the bathroom door.

The table is a House of Miniatures Hepplewhite Side table with hand painted designs and added elements inspired by a real life sized antique table.

The books are some of the many I made while filling the parlor bookcase.

The vase and bird figurine were purchased awhile ago, but I'm no longer sure of the vendor.  The flowers are Bonnie Lavish red dahlias.

I made the tiny red alarm clock from a rounded wood cap from Hobby Lobby, two silver brads and a gunmetal head pin.  The feet are Tiny Turnings.  The face is a printed image from The Graphics Fairy with a clear cabochon sticker to simulate glass.  I had made a set of vintage table clocks for another miniaturist through my etsy shop, and I liked the red one so well I knew I would need one for the Heritage.

The artwork is a photograph from artisan Natasha Fadeeva.  She makes the most amazing little animals.  I just swoon over her mice!!!  :D  I contacted her about using the vintage mice photos in the Heritage, and she graciously gave me her permission.  I haven't yet framed the other.

I love the red and round theme of this vignette.  :D

Wow, the red clock is so realistic! This looks so professional that the photo looks like a scene out of a decorators magazine! Very nice work! Thanks for sharing!

I've never seen her work before, they're all so adorable! Those bunnies, that raccoon *swoon*. Love the mouse picture. Did you make or purchase the frame?

Your books are incredible. I have tried and tried to achieve that level of realism in books in the past and just never quite achieved it. They especially look great in the bookcase picture from your pictorial recap. Exquisite!
