Grand Opening of Magnolia Hollow

I’m so excited to announce the grand opening of Magnolia Hollow! When I first saw this fabulous shop kit from The Curated Farmhouse, I immediately imagined a seasonal home decor store and since fall is my favorite season, I thought it was the perfect time to get started. Next, I got to work on the store’s branding and design. I chose one of my favorite flowers, the magnolia, as the motif for the design, and I love the soft, muted neutral shades that go with it.

So, let’s go on a little tour of the exterior of the shop today!

But first, what grand opening would be complete without balloons and a ribbon cutting ceremony?

That beautiful autumn wreath on the front door is by Tiny Naturals Gift Shop, and the adorable door mat and insert is from My Mini Front Porch.

I made the marigolds from a kit from Moonflower Miniatures, and the amazing hanging planters came from My Mini Front Porch, too. I love the pop of color they brought to the exterior.

This shelf was part of the shop kit, and it’s a great way to display some additional products outside. I made the trucks from ornaments I got at Hobby Lobby. I designed all the labels, signage, packaging and tea towels myself. I used actual agate slices to make the serving trays, and beads to make the fragrance diffusers. The candle warmer on the top shelf actually lights up, too!

I sculpted the pumpkins for the trucks from polymer clay, and I used dried flowers, as well. The beautiful little potted mums came from Mimi’s Mini Boutique Co.

This little standing display was also included with the shop kit, and I thought it would be the perfect place to display all those little impulse buys: soaps, scent sachets, magazines, potpourri, etc.

I love cinnamon pine cones, so I used tiny little alder cones to make my own packages of them.

I designed the Magnolia Hollow Living magazines and the calendars, as well. I also made tiny little pumpkins from polymer clay in mesh bags as vase filler. And let’s not forget the bags of potpourri!

I even made little branded shopping bags, because… why not?

I hope you enjoyed the tour of the outside of Magnolia Hollow! Stay tuned for a look at everything inside!


Mariela the Masquerade Mouse

This little cutie is ready for the Halloween masquerade ball! I made Mariela’s tutu from black and orange tulle, and I used black, white and orange beads with a crystal focal bead for her necklace. Lastly, she has a Venetian-style mask handcrafted from polymer clay. Visit her on Etsy!

Happy Fall!

As I’ve been adding fall and Halloween-themed critters to my Etsy shop, I had the idea to create a little seasonal scene to photograph them in, and I couldn’t be more delighted with the results! I used polymer clay and a craft gourd to build a little house surrounded by a picket fence. The polymer clay spooky tree has little ghosts hanging from it, and the front stoop on the house is decorated with mini bales of hay, a pumpkin and a tiny broom! Now, onto a winter scene!
