I'm currently working on another little house and have been busily crafting some items for the interior. Here's a wee shrine I made.



Overall it measures around 3" tall

The shiny thing behind the Lady image is a vintage reflector from a little Christmas tree light. The funny looking stuff at her feet are calendula/marigold petals. The two wee candles are sewing thread dipped in wax.

You really put a lot of detail into such a tiny shrine - it's beautiful!

Love how you handmade the candles, too.  Cheesy
