3D scene project: Kitsch is Where the Heart Is

Hi, hi.

As it is every 3rd Tuesday, today it's my turn to share a Design Team project on the shop blog of my friend 3D Jean, and this is today's offering:
Some people might call it a 'shrine' ... the Tando packing calls it a 'Mini Theatre Stage' ....
I call it 'the thing I made mam for Mother's Day hich she still has on display in the living room':
As it was for a very special person I populated my scene with some of those 'saving for best' items, like the little teddy and the gorgeous doll image from an old annual. And I went slightly cabochon-crazy too
It may not be the most sedate, understated creation ... if anything it looks rather as if I covered the 'thing' with glue and held it aloft during an explosion in a kitsch factory ... to see what stuck.

But who said that would be a bad thing?

And, like me, my Mam grew up under the influence of my [late] Grandma who bestowed her love upon us all at times with the most wonderfully eccentric, Magpie-eyed gifts ...
... so kitsch really is where the heart is round here.

  4. Hi Julie, your mini theatre is stunning, I love all the little elements, so much to look at.
