MARY ENGELBREIT VINTAGE KITCHEN QUARTER SCALE
This was a kit from Suzanne Larson-Tamburo. She had a limited number of kits, but I was fortunate to get one in Charlotte even though I missed the opportunity to take the wkshop class. Took me about 2-3 days to complete. A clever kit. The frame and shelf contents graphics are from an ME notecard. You apply a stylus to the plates and bowls graphics to give a 3D appearance.
I added hinges and acrylic from a notecard box to the frame opening because I'm paranoid about getting dust into my minis.
The dog is by Gayle Clausen and a gift from Sandy Davis. The food mixer, blender and cutting board was a roundtable kit from Portland Small Scale Houseparty. It was a challenge making or finding accessories for the counters. I ended up using more graphics from the ME book "Life is a Bowl of Cherries" and used a stylus to make a 2D picture look like 3D.
See the outlet graphic I added?
The FRAME is 3 7/8 x 3 3/8. The ROOMBOX is 3 1/4 x 2 3/4 x 1".
