Miniature shabby chic kitchen

So, here it is! The kitchen I've been trying to work out for a while. I put the stove together from a Chrysnbon kit and gave it a few coats of blue acrylic and a shine. Ever since then it's been needing a kitchen to live in. I'm hoping to take some lighter pics soon! I can't seem to light it quite right for photos yet.
 I built the shelf from popsicle sticks, tongue depressors and wooden coffee stirrers. Here's a close-up:
I was inspired by the tutorial by Susi from Mini Eden and I only made a few changes. I bought the stickers at the scrapbooking store. They are stacked. I painted over them in cream and wrote Belle Maison in brown marker.
I tried some of Liberty Biberty's enamelware tutorial. Turns out I can't rust the for the life of me! I'll try again later. I punched out the round labels from scrapbooking paper and wrote the names on them.

                                    At sunset.

The floor is wooden coffee stirrers with Special Walnut stain. The chairs are cheapo plastic painted in Folkart acrylic 903 Tapioca.

I got this wooden dresser thing free with my dollhouse; knocked out/sanded out the arched bits on each shelf and painted and decoupaged it and made little "curtains". The writing on the surface says "Love of my heart".

This adorable teapot was made by Fizzyclaret as noted in my etsy blogpost a few weeks ago. I made the cupcakes and cakes.

Miniature Ornithologist's Foyer in a Bird Cage

Found a partial birdcage at the hobby store. Thought it should have an ornithologist's office in it, but it was too small for a proper desk, so I went with the foyer idea instead.

 Made the suitcase out of paper wrapped around foam. Painted and sanded the shutter and glued on bird pics.
Made the floor out of drywall paste with a few coats of diluted paint.
