I AM a Giant

I said I would do it and I did it!  I finished my "I'm a Giant" entry. 

Thanks to The Shopping Sherpa for mentioning this awesome little booklight.  It has a cool modern look and is just the right size and price for a modern dollhouse.  It's name is Tiny Tim!...Really, it is.

I changed the cabinet because I thought the grey one was a litte too small for the space. The Beatles poster is from the back of an old calendar.  I knew there was a reason that I kept it. The other art above the sofa is Kaleidoscope house. I also put legs on the sofa.

I made the pillows and the sofa.  The rattan table is from Miniatures.com .The book case is vintage found on Ebay. The red chairs are CB2.

The fire pit is lit up by a couple of battery operated tea light candles. The chairs are CB2.

The fire pit is a case from a piece of jewelery I got a loooooong time ago.

I made the bed and found the fabric in the remnant bin at JoAnn Fabrics.  The lamp is battery operated from Miniatures.com. , TV is Brinca Dada and the chest is Ebay.

Don't ask where they (who are they anyway?) will use the bathroom (there isn't one).  I guess they will just have to go outside or to the neighbor's.

Done Da Done Done Done!

  2. Hi Jazzi,
    That's the funny thing...The original deadline was December 15th then it was extended to February 1st. No one has heard anything else about it so who knows. Modern Mini Houses has a great blog about the entrants. It's definitely worth checking out.

    1. Oh, I like this! Simple. Fun. Battery tea lights - I may steal that idea!

  3. Congrats! and WOW! Love this!

  4. YAY!!! So glad you finished! Who knows when the deadline will be now, but I added your new pics to my listing. :D I LOVE what you did with the tea lights, such a cool fire pit.

  5. I so love what you did here. You had fabulous raw materials to begin. These shelves are very mod. The fire pit is fabulous and the handmade items are very well done.

  6. Great job! Love the vibe, very mod!

  7. Oh yes! Thank you for reminding me about my hunt for those poise lamps. And the fire pit idea is killer, man. Smarty smart pants idea. Smiles!
