I have plenty more photos from the Chicago show to share! These little shops from Wright Guide Miniatures amazed my mom and me! I especially loved the little autobody shop, with its tiny fan belts and cans of oil. All photos link to the Wright Guide Minis website.

Flipping my mini house

My mini bathroom is really coming along! The tile floor has been grouted, trim has been installed, the sparkly chevron wallpaper has gone up, and the mini blinds I made from a coaster are now on the wall. Here’s a look at all the progress:
