New Collection Coming Soon!!

I am so very excited about this!
This will be my first collection/series. I am working on pieces as you read this! The majority of the line should be out within a few weeks, with sneak peeks posted here and there :-)
I LOVE shabby chic very much, as I am sure a lot of you do, so I decided to incorporate a lot of it in my new line but with a darker more dramatic twist! It will be modern yet classic, dramatic but humble, bold without being too much.
I am making lots of different things for this new collection,
  • Furniture for every room
  • Mirrors and Wall Art
  • Pottery and Kitchenware
  • Chandeliers
  • Dessert and Dinner sets
  • Flowers 
  • Wrought Iron-lots of it!
I will post a pic of the color palette the further I get in to making this collection. I don't want to give away too much too soon ;-) hehehehe.
I want to thank all of my fans for their love and all make my days with your kindness and compliments.
Much love!

Update: Latest furniture creations!

Boy am I excited about these two tables lol. I am in LOVE with this wrought iron idea me and my bestie Sadie had. I made both of these tables from the materials in the pics from the last post. the legs on the "wrought iron" table are tin. It is very fragile still, need to work on a way of making the legs sturdier next time. I am REALLY into making furniture right now...which is so weird because I usually only make food and little house decorations. I saw that a few people I am a fan of on deviantArt, like Steffi786 or Kayanah, had been making their own furniture and display sets to suit their own needs, and I thought it was really cool and looked like a lot of fun! So, here I am now lol.
I use Balsa wood and little wooden ice cream sticks or whatever little pieces of wood I can find. I try to find easy to cut wood, seeing as Im using a utility knife to cut out my pieces. Here is the first table, it is still unpainted, I havent decided on colors or what its purpose is yet.

The second table I made is this one, its one of my favorites! It looks like one of those cool metal outdoor tables. Sometimes, theyre made from wrought iron, sometimes metal.

I think I am going to be making more and more furniture as time goes on. I really enjoy it! I am hoping to also do a "real life vs. miniature" items. I will show a pic of the normal sized item next to my piece and hopefully, itll look like someone shrunk it down to 1:12 size hahaha.
Comments, questions, thoughts please!
Hope you all are having fabulous Mondays :-D
