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.

This is gorgeous!  I'm blown away that you actually made your own wee wax dipped candles.  Great job!

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

Love how you handmade the candles, too.  Cheesy
