Mermaid play set

I'm so excited to show you what's in the box...


Would you like to come in for a dip? Hang out on my needlefelted star cushion?


Have a little look the the treasure shell? Maybe go up to the castle later?


it's such a nice evening out.


I was inspired by the play sets at Little Red Whimsy So cute. When I saw these purse like boxes on sale for less than $3 at Michael's, I took all three.
The inspiration for the mermaids come from
Princess Nimble Thimble


It was so much fun making this. I got lost in the scene of it. Don't you love when that happens?! The sandcastle in the back is a scrapbook sticker.

I made a bendy Pirate doll for Rafael. He has requested a pirate play set. He has good suggestions for it too!
Stay tuned.

thanks for looking,
Amanda
