Shabby chic

Hello Bloggers!

Thank you for your encouraging words on my little mermaid! I still don´t know what to do with her, a beach scene would be so much fun to make but I guess it would be cool to have an underwater part with corals, too and a little beach hut and all of this without using a lot of space, haha. Brigitte from my online club already sent me some beautiful seeshells and corals which she had collected once in Thailand. So I guess I will collect beach things and ideas and maybe I will have the right day, lol!

In the meanwhile I am spending lots of time at pinterest and I got hooked by pictures from old windows displayed in gardens. Can´t have that in my real garden, but in mini :0)

It´s made of cardboard (the one kind you get for your glasses as coasters) and a plastic sheet from a film.
I also brushed some Tacky glue on it to further age it.

The little table is made from paper and wire and little mosaic tiles I have here for ages. 

The hydrangeas is another kit of Pascale Garniers faded hydrangeas. I love the faded colors!

Have a wonderful Sunday!
Hugs, Sandra


  1. Hi Sandra, you made a lovely scene, the old window looks fantastic and I love the little mosaic table :)
    Have a great Sunday !

    Hugs Mieke xxx

  2. Your hydrangeas look gorgeous! And that table is just fantastic!

  3. The little scene is just fabulous. The proportions are excellent. One can hardly tell this is in miniature.
    Great work!
    Hugs, Drora

  4. I love your hydrangeas, they turned out great.

  5. Hi Sandra and thank you! We are having a very lovely and sunny Sunday here. I wish you a great day too.
    Your hydrangeas are adorable and so is the whole scene!♥
    Well done girl!

  6. Oh eine Unterwasserfilm mit der meerjungfrau, da bin ich schon gespannt... Dein jetziges Projekt ist toll geworden ... Süße Hortensien

  7. I like this little scene. The table is wonderful.

  8. What a beautiful post Sandra. I love the window you have made and the hydrangeas are so beautiful! I'm also amazed by that beautiful little table, it is gorgeous!!
    I am sure that whatever project you choose for the Mermaid it will be beautiful and I will love it :0)
    hugs ♥ Vicky ♥

  9. Hi Sandra! Beautiful miniatures, I like all the things you've made. The glass window is well done, fantastic work. The hydrangeas are gorgeous, I love the faded colors too.
    Hugs, Ilona

  10. Que bonitas miniaturas, felicidades!!

  11. Dir wird schon die richtige Szene für Deine Nixe einfallen, da sind wir ganz sicher. Deine kleine Gartenidylle ist jedenfalls fantastisch geworden - die Bilder sehen aus, als hättest Du 1:1-Objekte fotografiert, wirklich beeindruckend.

    Liebe Grüße
    Flutterby und Birgit - und natürlich auch Grüße an Gingi, soso, der macht jetzt in Fledermäusen... wir sind sehr gespannt, aber nicht überrascht, in unserem Hause ist man durch Igor ja an solche Flatteriche gewöhnt... ;O)

  12. Hi Sandra,
    Your miniatures are so beautiful... I just love the tile table you made!
    Thank you so much for your comment on Moombeam.. So happy you enjoyed.

  13. Hi Sandra! I love your miniature shabby chic scene! It looks so realistic, I didn't realize it was miniature at first. Lovely work--it's always a pleasure to read your blog posts! xo Jennifer

  14. Hi
    Oh, I love these lifestyle scenes. The window and the the little table with tiles makes it all so lifelike.
    Let your sleeping beauty sleep, suddenly, one day, you are no longer in doubt.

  15. Was für tolle Minis. Ich liebe die Blumen!!
    Ich habe einen Award für dich.
    Schau mal auf meinem Blog vorbei.

    Liebe Grüße

  16. Hallo Sandra, deine kleine Szene ist perfekt. Dass das Fenster nicht 1:1 ist, glaube ich nicht!!!! Wenn ich je ein Puppenhaus bauen sollte, wird die Bestellung der Fenster bei dir in Auftrag gegeben. Toll. Aber auch das kleine Tischchen und die Hydrangea (wie ist gleich der deutsche Name?) sind ganz ganz fantastisch.
    Lustig finde ich, dass der Google-Translator-Button nicht übersetzen in "Deutsch" anzeigt.
    Eine schöne Woche und danke für deinen lieben Kommentar auf meinem Blog


  17. I obviously go to the wrong sort of bar, I don't get beer mats like that! It's perfect, I love what you've done with it. And yes, a lovely kit from Pascale. Can't wait to see what you make for your beach scene, you have such brilliant ideas! Hugs!

  18. Preciosa escena, con una luz y composición que la hacen nostálgica
    Me gusta

  19. Your old window is fabulous!!! I love old windows as garden and room decor pieces too but I never thought of doing it in mini - you're a genius! ;) And the flowers are beautiful, such a pretty colour.

  20. Good morning Sandra,
    In regards to displaying your mermaid.. How about making her a large sea shell to display her in. Just a thought.
    Thank you so much for your visit and kind thoughts about Mother Goose.. Yes, I thought her beak looks a little long, but you know when I measured my reference material it is correct. I guess it is a visual thing.
    I hope you had time to visit the links.
    Have a great day

  21. I am very happy you have found my blog. I discover youre: it' s bautiful work!

  22. Wow!!! This scene looks so realistic, the window the table and the Hortensia..they look all fantastic and the mossy tiles they stand on looks very realistic too. That sweet little mermaid you made is a real work of art too.

  23. Que preciosas hortensias, son mis flores preferidas.
    Me encanta ese color.
    besitos ascension
