A little room for Princess Pea


Melissa and I each like to collect old clock casings. You just never know what a little box might hold, you know? Like maybe a chandelier made out of birthday candles.

CMN said...

I'm sorry, but that is just so freaking adorable! So who gets to play with it though... a small person or Mom? :-)

Prue said...

How on earth do you keep little fingers out of that?! It's very cute.

margaret k. said...

that is one of the best things i have ever seen. ever.

Play is good for all of us, maybe especially us "grown ups". This is precious and magical.

Cheryl said...

Life can be so mundane sometimes..this picture brought a thrill, an involuntary smile. It is too, too perfect.

Kristin said...

That is so great. I never thought about old clock casing to use for a little box. Do you buy with the clock inside and then deconstruct or do you find them with out the clock?

greenchickadee said...

Cutest thing EVER! I mean, for real. Whatever it was in it's former life will never compare to what it gets to be now!

lynne said...

I found the clock casing empty, on ebay. Not at all expensive.

Who knew? :)

ConstanceV said...

This is superbe! What a great idea to make it in to a little tale-house! I just looove the chandelier and the matrasses.

jojo-caramel said...

It is very very cute !!! I love that idea ! Be careful, a fairy might come on of those days... You should put a little bit of cake (chocolate and hazelnuts) in a tiny little plate...
That was one of my favorite stories when i was little. Belle journée :)

melissa said...

I wish I could shrink myself down and take a nap on that cozy princess bed. Amazing creation Lynne!

Ravenhill said...

fabulously creative.

Nessa said...

gasp! I am in convulsions over how lovely/adorable/pure awesome that is!!! I had a major thing for miniature stuff when I was younger... er... I guess I never grew out of that. All I know is that when I found the miniature beakers in chem class I was elatedly happy.

Lisa said...

Brilliant!

Bethany Hissong said...

I'm in love with this idea!! They remind me of Joseph Cornell boxes or something... magical!! My Grandpa used to collect watch parts and now I wish I had them. You are just full of endless ideas!!!

Honeygo Beasley said...

I am loving those small green candles. How adorable!

Barbara said...

Oh so darling! Perfect for a little fairy princess...

Lauren said...

Alexandra said...

This is precious! I want clock casings, too!

Alexandra said...

I want to be your daughter. Does that make you uncomfortable?

rowena said...

I ADORE this idea. Combining a few of my favorite things... fairy tales, tiny houses, and repurposing.

Awesome.
