Interlude: Finishing smaller projects

I needed a break from the Beacon Hill so finished up some quarter inch and micro scale projects.

This is the cute little Sunnyside Gardens, a microscale shop in the “Watercolors” series by Robin Betterly. I had completed the shop before, and now I finished the interior and landscaping kit. (I could have decorated the interior myself, but sometimes kits are more relaxing for me).

We have pots of plants, crates of seedlings, garden soil, garden tools, all kinds of fun stuff.

The interior is a bedroom upstairs of woodland themed furniture, and the shop downstairs, which includes a seed rack and display counters for all the garden goodies.

I had to wash out the exterior to get the photo of the interior through the door. Seed counter and pots inside.

A fun little kit. It’s on display in my living room with the first kit in the series (the cafe). Gee, there’s room for another kit next to the garden shop.

Next: Finished up the landscaping and added an outdoor tub to the quarter-inch scale Creekside Studio.

Decided to put a little vegetable garden here.

This kit turned out really well. I got this from Suzanne and Andrews Minis (link in sidebar under Quarter inch Resources). They don’t have this particular one anymore, but they have a similar kit called “Seaside Cottage,” which has a complete second floor.

Obviously, this needs furniture! Which I will do one day. Right now, I’m ready to return to the Beacon Hill and finish the outside details I need to build on.

  1. Love the Creekside studio.. I adore the shabby styling. So cute. That outdoor tub is wonderful. I can’t wait to see how you decorate the interior. If it’s half as good as the micro scale, its going to be spectacular.

  2. Every time I see the posts of your 1/48th scale projects I badly get the wants! I then force myself to turn around and look at all I have left to do in other scales, then go back and ogle yours! So precious!

  3. Your break away from the Beacon Hill has been well spent. Both of your diminutive cottages are adorable, but I LOVE your Creekside Studio and its new gardens and the tub with the hand pump outside is also eye catching, even when behind the fence! ;D
