When in doubt, wear red ~ Paper Dress Shop

I ran across Manon's blog a few months ago and her bright happy style and love of paper houses inspired me to try my hand at creating my own. 
 
Welcome to
"When in doubt, wear red,"
a retro consignment shop with some very eclectic touches.
the brick work is made out of paperclay that I stamped into and then washed with brown ink. 
Gardens have grown wild all around the shop.
 
The windows are that old lovely thick glass with ripples in it. 
And out back hidden in the garden is where the magic happens.
I constructed a mini box to hold all the bits and pieces that make the shop light work. 
Yep, there is a working light inside the shop!
Stop by next week to see the inside.
 
I'm linking up to Paper Saturdays
come join us.
