Here again :)

Hello everyone gosh it has been a while sorry about that RL has been difficult. We have had  the warmest summer here for a very long time and we are still getting some sunshine though today you can feel the cold it is not raining yet though :))
I am trying to get back into mini mode and I have started with a toy shop I did do this shop a few years ago but since then I have learned some ;) and I have lots of beautiful new toys given to me by friends and that I bought at the fair I went to in Madrid a few years ago. so I striped off the paper and re papered it I really like this paper I hope you do too.

I left the flooring on as I think it suits a toy shop (easy to keep clean)  ;)
I have made this display case. I used a spool I got from L idles with Christmas ribbon on it.








I still have work to do on this display but I thought you might like to see my idea.
I hope to be here more often from now on  and that I have my mogo back lol.
Big Warm Hugs to All My Friends.

I love your idea for redoing your room box into a toy shop, Maria, the wall paper and floor look lovely already :)! Interesting to see the spool of ribbon, I've never seen one like this before ;).
I hope that your real life will be getting easier to cope with, dear friend.
Hugs, Ilona

Hi, Maria - It's so nice to have you back on your blog! A toy shop sounds like a fun project, and it has a great start with that cheerful and playful wallpaper. The display case made from a ribbon spool is a creative idea - and I like the colorful clowns! I'm looking forward to seeing more of your new project.

The most important thing first: I'm so glad to see you're back into miniatures!!! You've been in my thoughts so often… no doubt it was a hard and difficult time. And I really love your new project, a toy shop is always fun and this one promises to become a friendly, happy and inviting shop. I came to this conclusion looking at your beautiful wallpapers and the nice floor. I think this light brown wood is a great choice for a toy shop. The display you've made is stunning, I too have never seen a spool like this before - what a great find. And filling it with clowns and Frozen figurines was a lovely idea! I'm really looking forward to see more of this wonderful project.

Hugs
Birgit

What an amazing idea to use a spool as a display case!! I like the wallpaper you chose very much and am looking forward to seeing what toys/furnishings you will add next.


Kind regards from Riverside,
