Not quite complete. Need a base and some non-flickering tea lights for inside. Don't think I'll glitter this one...

The main street is cool. I like the grill work on the front. Looking forward to seeing Main Street completed.

This looks great! Is it dimensional or just a flat backdrop/scenery type street? I love all the details - great handiwork! Would love to see more pics. :)

It is dimensional; the awning on the Bella Luna projects and the entryway to Mimi's Boutique is recessed. I took a head-on picture, so it doesn't really show that. It's pretty primitive compared to the stuff folks post here, but I'm having fun making it and that's not a bad thing.

Definitely important to have fun doing it! :) But don't discount your skills - I think it looks great! It's a cool idea, too. I think it would be fun to build some stores/shops to go with my houses. Good luck as you finish this project and please post more photos!

Added a few finishing touches. Got to fix the roof - see the back left of John's books - don't want a leaky roof!

I love the mailbox.

I should make one for the Post Office I built awhile back.

It looks wonderful! I like all the extras, too - the chair, mailbox, potted plant. Really nice little town street scene.
