The other side of the Post Office box is complete, this time with a leather repairs store. (I know the signage says ‘shoe repairs’, so I tried to compensate with the window displays.) This is the first time I’ve used this brown paper for the window and door frames, and I quite like it. I…… Continue reading More Storefronts

Decorating In and Out
In-between decorating her apartment…. ….Sarah’s helping Tiffany and Petra decorate the stores for the holidays. Most of their time is spent being silly with the decorations, though. “What do you think Petra?” “Uhm….” “Hey Tiff, can I borrow extra hooks for my wreath and these lights?” “Sure I’ll just– Sarah’s got biscuits!” “Do you want…… Continue reading Decorating In and Out
Petra requested a denim pinafore for summer, which was the perfect opportunity to continue practicing skirt-making. I tried something different with the back because of fabric constraints, which I think looks quite good. The front panel is perhaps a little bit wide, but I don’t think it’s too big of a deal. I enjoy taking…… Continue reading Summer Pinafore
One of the most important things you need to have a happy garden is water. How do you deliver that to pot plants? A watering can! I really like these silver ones, and I think they match the aesthetic of Petra’s world well. At first, I thought it might be a little small, but that…… Continue reading Happy Plants
Drinks & Lanterns
Two more details were added to Tea at Yaz’s, first is this simple drinks menu: As well as lanterns, for the tables: I made two square ones and a pentagonal one, all with little rings on top for holding or hanging. (The two lying-down rings don’t actually move, unfortunately!) They’ve each got a little candle…… Continue reading Drinks & Lanterns
What’ll It Be?
I got two more Tea at Yaz’s details made, starting with a pair of aprons for waitstaff! Both aprons have a working pocket and an adjustable neck strap, which I’m very happy with. That pocket is a great place to pop some table menus if your hands are full! The text describes actual meals served,…… Continue reading What’ll It Be?
One thing I knew I wanted to upgrade in renovating Tea at Yaz’s was the coffee machine: the old one was more of an urn, whereas this is more the sort in a coffee shop. As you can see, there’s space for three cups; I also added the grille under the cups and a small…… Continue reading Barista Coffee
Tea at Yaz’s now has its own line of tea! I made the designs for these little boxes myself, which was a long process of trial and error. There are 10 different boxes: hibiscus, rooibos, chamomile, peppermint, strawberry, earl grey, black, ginger, lavender and hot chocolate. On the back, there is a teeny tiny nutrition…… Continue reading Tea Boxes
Tea at Yaz’s has another addition to the menu – curries! I also made some spice jars for the Tea at Yaz’s pantry too; left to right there is curry powder, chilli powder, and cinnamon. On the left is yellow beef curry, and on the right is butter chicken. I’m very pleased with how the…… Continue reading Curries
The new doll I mentioned in the last post is complete – meet Petra Zapalla! She likes plants and gardening, as well as travelling to new places, especially if they have cool gardens or forests to wander in. Her collection of jumpers is rivalled only by Sarah’s collection of T-shirts. She lives above Tea at…… Continue reading Meet Petra
