HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!!! I hope everyone is enjoying a little love!!! Last year I tried my hand at some miniature baking and thought I would share it with you. I made the little cake stand and hand painted it. I was experimenting with frosting on the cake and decided to use some "spackle" which makes the cake look really home made!! LOL There is also a platter of heart cookies!

When I first started trying my hand at making something in miniature(before sculpting) I came up with an idea of making a perfume shelf. I had so much fun putting this together even if I didn't know exactly what I was doing! As you can see I didn't use wood glue which was a big mistake. The wood on the back side has split over the years. I didn't realize either that you shouldn't really have a piece like this too glossy or it will not look right. I added a few images that I decoupaged and really loved how that turned out!! I have learned so much since this first attempt! Thank goodness!!! This piece is what began my addiction to miniatures!!! My obsession is still growing!!
