Work in progress

If you follow Me on Instagram or Facebook, you may have seen some recent snaps of work on a new set.

Although things don’t always happen in this order, I thought it might be fun and different to show some pictures of  My creative process and how some things come to be.

Thanks for your interest!

I am not certain yet, what pieces I will make to fill this room. It has a bit of a 40’s/50’s vibe to it. However, some correctly chosen pieces could make it quite a splendid room indeed! A bit of glamour perhaps? 

*This set will be available for sale once complete.

“Kuba Komet” Novelty-V in Colors!

Hello Everyone!

I have a few “Kuba Komet” TV’s available in colo!

NOW SOLD OUT !  THANK YOU SO MUCH EVERYONE !

Choose Baby Blue, Amber or Red !color2

 

color

 Light up Television in miniature!  My “Novelty-V’s” are a holiday favorite!  Here’s the SUPER NOVA of TV’s, the “Kuba Komet”.  The life size original was made between 1957-1962. This is my own take on a novelty which took extra time to construct in order to get just right. 

Light up capability uses flame-less tea light candles so you can use this set for years to come! The “Kuba Komet” is two piece construction (as shown). Leave the set facing straight or turn to your liking. Just like the life size one!  The set comes with two laminated scenes.  “It’s a Wonderful Life” and “The Joey Bishop Show”.   Also includes one flame-less tea light candle.  Create your own scenes for added fun!

Special Assignment

Hello Everyone

I was asked a while ago, to take on a little project;  Build a mid-century modern (Mad Men style) office. While I don’t fancy myself as a designer of office furniture, this request interested Me more because of who it came from. 

David Parise is a 60’s nostalgia lover and extremely talented photographer whose current project is photographing vintage Barbie and family dolls in real life situations. -“Artwork that makes you smile”.

We have yet to see what fabulous photos will evolve from this set, as it is currently on its way to David, –  so more in the future! 

For now, I just wanted to share the set with all of you!

Here are the results of the Mid Century Modern Office:
