Unusual containers are a fun way for a quick display.
I found this fake book box at Warwicks, a stationary and bookstore.
I bought the book box when I saw it and put it in my stash. I recently fixed it up to display a few other pieces I’ve collected. The scene just fits into the book.
The French toile-like wallpaper is a piece of scrapbook paper. It’s not exactly to 1″ scale, but it fits this scene. I always browse the scrapbook aisles of hobby stories and grab paper that looks like something I can adapt to minis. I’ve used scrapbook paper for flooring or to put on the outsides of room boxes.
The gorgeous shabby chic desk and vintage postcards I found on Etsy from https://www.etsy.com/shop/FloraDollhouse. It’s a beautiful little desk and came with all the vintage letters and postcards. The chair I bought at a mini online auction. I acquired the picture somewhere and thought it went with the scene.
My handmade contribution to this scene is the inkwell and quill pen set and the letter holder (top left-hand side of desk holding letter).
The little box to hold old letters and postcards came with the desk.
A nice little scene to put on the shelf in my living room.
