Assemblage miniature house Once Upon A Winters Time by MesssieJessie

An assemblage miniature vignette, Once Upon A Winters Time.

Measuring 37 cm high, 27 cm wide, 20 cm depth.

A small three dimensional assemblage comprising of remnants from a vintage book and ply wood, which has been constructed into a miniature house and worn with age telling the tale of a forgotten time. A platform divides the room from the little drawer below, where hidden inside are a pair of small ballet pumps carefully encased in a glass box.
The drawer is also made from ply wood and paper mache. A stunning vintage brooch acts as the handle to the drawer.

In the room are many intricate details, painted using acrylic, a mixture of white muted tones giving the feel of a cold snowy night. The small wooden drawers are adorned with paper moths and a small brass clock symbolising the passing of time. A small LED light is hidden in one of the drawers giving a soft light.

The dress is made from beautiful soft worn vintage cottons and book papers. The bodice is full of intricate details and very small beads.
