Good Afternoon,

I wanted everyone to see the window seat that I made in my Asian roombox that I am working on.. I did have some help from my sweetie getting the drawers to work.. LOL I made the windows in my room, the bamboo tree was a swap and so was the hanging ornament in the window. The geisha girl was a home/craft decorating store find and I thought that she was perfect for this room.. I have a bare wall on the left side that is crying out for a kimono. If anyone can make me one with red and black, I would appreciate it and I am willing to trade you something for it.. I am really proud of this roombox even though it is not finished.. If anyone has any ideas for me please feel free to leave me a comment.. I don't make asian foods and would love to make something to put on a table in this roombox.. I hope that everyone enjoys..

Until my next posting.. Mini Smooches


  1. Hi Pearl

    If you only want it to hand on the wall Origami kimonos are really easy to make.

    If you could perhaps find some suitable red and black paper you could try one of those.

  2. Hi there Pearl! Congratulations on starting a blog. I look forward to following it and seeing your creations. Thank you for following my blog as well. I love your window seat.

  3. Hi Doreen.. Thank you for following my blog. I am learning as I go and I am enjoying seeing other blogs and having others enjoy my blog. I can't wait to show more of my creations as well.. Thanks for the comment on my window seat. It was fun to make, although it wasn't easy.. LOL

  4. Hi Tallulah~Belle. Thank you for the idea on the paper kimonos. I have seen those but I would like a real fabric kimono. I might try some of the paper ones to just use as extra ornaments. I will have to find a tutorial for the paper ones. If you have a tut please send it to me, I would appreciate it.

  5. Hi Pearl,

    I don't have a tut but I bet there are loads on the internet. I have been making them so long I just do it now without any instructions.

    You could use fabric and just follow the same directions. I made a huge one to hang on the wall in the same origami manner but used fabric.

  6. Pearl Well done. All that the table needs is a tea set or Ikibana(sp) plant.

  7. Hi Tantie,

    Thanks for stopping by.. I thank you for the ideas. I will be looking into learning to make a tea set and the plant.. :)

  8. I am so happy to finally see this piece you've been talking about! Hmm. I had some origami paper that would make a great kimono... Will let you know. Beautiful work lady!

  9. Hi Pearl,

    Love your blog. Have you gotten to make the kimono yet? If not I will check my fabric stash, let me know. You know my email!

  10. Hi Pearl,

    I "lurk" on the half scale yahoo mini's group and I read your post today. I had to come visit your blog and your Asian roombox is beautiful! I am also just starting to learn how to make my miniatures rather than purchase so much stuff. Your blog looks wonderful!

  11. Pearl, congratulations on your brand new blog and thanks so much for visiting mine and leaving such a lovely comment.

    I love the background: the blog is boding very well: really stylish.

    I never did a blog in my life before I started mine, and I think they just evolve on their own - just try not to stress too much about how other peoples' look. You want to develop your OWN style. I went through around 11 background templates before I was happy! (Don't even ASK about headers, lol).

    I know absolutely nothing about the world of miniatures: it's really fascinating. The only thing I can do for you is give you this link (you may already know about her):

    I have no idea where I got the link from, but I was enchanted by the idea, and it looks like you are both on the same wavelength (great minds etc).

  12. Hi Susie,

    Thank you for coming to visit my blog.. I do know about Fay. Her website is great.. I thank you for all the advice.. I appreciate your vote of convidence and know that I am on the right track.. Thanks again..
