Much like my farmhouse-inspired laundry room, this bathroom roombox started with a Pinterest board and a vision of a neutral, soothing space to relax and unwind. I began work on this over a year ago, and it sat unfinished save for a few details. Sometimes, when inspiration isn’t coming, I walk away from a project for a while before going back to it with a new sense of direction. That’s definitely what happened here, and I’m so glad I finally got around to finishing it!
I made most of the details myself, but I have a list of other resources at the bottom of the post if you are looking for certain supplies.
Let’s take a tour, shall we?

Ring in the New Year with a new issue of DollsHouse & Miniature Scene
Happy New Year, friends! I’m so excited to share that my some of my NYE creations have been included in the cover story for the January 2023 issue of DollsHouse & Miniature Scene! Sadie Brown pulled together some fabulous New Year scenes from Robina Patterson (cover image), Kathleen Holmes and Kristine Hanna. Don’t miss it!
It was a dark and stormy night… Well, actually, it was a day in late September, and one of the most dangerous storms in recent history was headed our way. In an effort to keep myself busy and somewhat distracted from Hurricane Ian barreling towards us, I decided that my ghost girl (purchased earlier this year from artist, author and musician Slade Templeton) needed a place to haunt. I had purchased the metal cemetery tray from Michaels when their Halloween merch first arrived in hopes of eventually making a graveyard scene. It seemed my ghost girl was destined to haunt a graveyard, and so Midnight at the Mausoleum was born. In a haze of hurricane-induced anxiety (we were beyond fortunate to avoid damage, just lots of rain and wind), I scratch built the entire mausoleum in a day and a half and then proceeded to create the rest of the scene around it.
I created everything, with the exception of the shovel, the tray itself, and the ghost, from scratch. For the stained glass windows, I used Gallery Glass paint on acetate. Flickering lights inside the mausoleum added a lot to the overall ambiance and highlighted the dirty, dusty windows in a creepy way.
The tree is a wire armature covered with paper clay. The ravens are sculpted from polymer clay, then flocked and feathered. The mausoleum and headstones are all made from foamcore. I used an assortment of products from Woodland Scenics and AK Interactive for the terrain and weathering effects, respectively.
I really hope you enjoy my spooky little scene! Don’t miss the video below – and be sure to turn the volume up, because the sound effects and music are half the fun!
A million thanks to my wonderful and talented husband, Tom, for helping me bring this scene to life on video!
Yesterday, I shared the grand opening of Magnolia Hollow and took you on a tour of the exterior of the shop. Today, let’s head inside and see the fall collection now available!
This beautiful autumn table is the first thing we see when we enter Magnolia Hollow. That stunningly eye-catching maple tree bonsai kit is from Moonflower Miniatures. I painted a terra cotta pot in black and white and love how it turned out as a centerpiece.
The pretty square lantern and pedestal candle holder are from Giulia’s Miniatures. I made the chargers, the leaf napkin rings, the marble coasters, the little velvet pumpkins and the pumpkin salt and pepper shakers. I also decorated all of the plates.
Now, let’s browse the main shelf! Starting at the top is a beautiful autumnal garland by Tiny Naturals Gift Shop! Next, I just couldn’t resist making gnomes for the shop. I have little decorative gnomes in my house, and I thought tiny versions would be adorable.
I made the light fixtures myself with a combination of bell bead caps, styrene rods, beads, assorted jewelry findings, and LED lights from Evan Designs. I was so pleased that they turned out the way I envisioned!
I’ve noticed that tabletop signs have been really popular the past few years in stores like Joann and Michaels, so I put my Cricut Maker to work, using the print and cut feature. I made the plate holders that way, too.
I went a little nuts making candles, but they were SO much fun! They’re all poured wax, so they actually can be lit! I made more plates and decorated the canisters, as well. The white and gold marble cheeseboards and coasters are one of my favorite details! I made them all from polymer clay with actual gold leaf. I used my Cricut to cut the cheese knives out, as well.
I thought a greeting card display would be cute, and I’m so glad I thought to include it.
I made the blanket ladder with these cozy flannel blankets (with more folded and stacked on the bottom shelf). I also hand sewed all the decorative pillows.
More velvet pumpkins and some really pretty cloth napkin sets, too!
I made more decorative leaf napkin rings in silver and gold.
I’m also a huge fan of tiered trays, so I decided to include one here with some cute details like a bead garland, pumpkins, some signs, a canister, a pinecone and a candle.
Extra little signs for tiered trays, plus some decorative mugs.
More velvet pumpkins! Can you tell that I’m really into them?
I hope you enjoyed this journey into Magnolia Hollow for fall! Stay tuned for the winter collection, coming soon!
Plus be the first to know about new products, sales and more!
