Home Sweet Home Shadow Boxes

Hello friends :)  Our temps have been so nice this last couple of weeks.  Highs is the 70's and 80's during the day then a cool down at night.  Right now it's 58 chilly degrees :)  We thankful for great weather as were still in the process of doing some home repairs after the storm in July.
I bought these two shadow boxes at a thrift store and they were $2.00 each.  I knew I wanted to alter them so I removed the backs and all the furniture and gave them a new look :)
All the papers, wallpaper and paper on the ceilings, and images are Crafty Secrets.  Made with Creating With Vintage Patterns CD.   I've used Mini Vintage Creative Scraps behind the windows and in the frames.

HI Jan
You have blown me away with this creation.
I want to live there!!!!
The colours, the incredible attention to detail. This should be in a magazine - I would submit this if I were you.

P.S. Glad my Scrappy Girls made you smile. When I realised I was using up scraps it just had to be that title!

Hi Jan,
Oh these are adorable. I love small treasures like this. You did an amazing job. I can so appreciate the work involved as I designed miniatures for a company in Cincinnati years ago and it was a lot of work. Small doesn't mean easy, right? You are one incredible talent.

Thank you for stopping by and your sweet comment. So nice to see you.
Have a great weekend.
Hugs, Celestina Marie
