I have been so inspired by photo's I've seen on the internet lately. This is a beach I made today in an ice cream bowl (actually it's a margarita glass but I don't drink.;o) for less than $15. My bathroom is decorated in sea shells so it now sits on the bathroom windowsill.
Thank you ladies! I got the idea from http://www.landscapesinminiature.com. The glass stemware was given to me years ago and I never used it. The accessories came from grandmahollyshouse on ebay. (I searched ebay for "dollhouse miniature beach".) And http://www.miniature-gardening.com. My bathroom is decorated with a seashell shower curtain and I have a half shell I use as a soap dish. The windowsill holds coral and shells so it just fit to set it all off. I ordered a shovel/bucket with shells and starfish from LandscapesNMiniature on http://www.etsy but it hasn't come in yet.
I'm so glad ya'll liked it, Laney
PS I found the coffee mug on ebay and added the "Coffee" with dyed resin "water".
Well hello there Kris! How are you and hubby doing? I hope everything is getting back to normal after y'all's move. I have sure missed our phone conversations and seeing you on here. Call when you get a chance.
I got an order in today from LandscapesNMiniature etsy site! I had only ordered the buckets and shovels but there was a mix up on their end and my order didn't get shipped so to make up for it Pam sent all the other things! Sand castle (which I love), tiny bottle of suntan lotion, extra small shells and a lovely baby abalone shell! She is easy to work with and is so talented!
Hi, I love this thread and frankly I may be stealing some ideas from this thread. I hope you don't mind.
A few years ago, I had a lady who is a fengshu i(chinese) expert come to my house and assess it. At that time, I had lot of art work in my bathrooms with 'sea' theme. She told me that if 'I feel like my money is being drained', then I should remove them from bathrooms but can keep it elsewhere in the house. So I did, and money came into my life. This is just an FYI. If you feel that money is being drained, then please don't keep aqua theme in the bathroom.
Sorry I'm late on every thing between school going out side and showers and chores its all so hard I finally got a chance to get on lol I barly get to talk to my dad and nana lol so I'm thinking of going to nanas next break we get so every thing is beautiful sorry got to go gotta call nana and my dad byeee
Great ideas everyone. It is so easy to become addicted to these minis! The coffee mug will be a nice addition to one of my future efforts! Thanks for all the ideas.
Here are a couple beachy ones I made last year. I crocheted the hammock and made the frame with wire.
I did make a couple additions but sold them without taking a photo. On the boardwalk one I found a little dog with a frisby in his mouth and placed him in the sand. In the other I added a smaller plant.
