Inspiration finds a Forever Home - Nautical!!!

Some pieces take a long time to come to fruition.   Inspiration was posted quite some time go.   I had found a cabinet in Coastal Living and duplicated it in 1/12 scale.   That cabinet has sat around for quite some time.   Now it is in it's forever home.








I have gotten where I love to use these candle lantern containers for miniature settings.   I really love this room and I hope you do too.  It's in 1/12 scale.

Raggedy Ann/Andy Store Front! Can you ever have too many?

As most of you know I have quite a passion for Raggedy Ann and Andy.   I seem to acquire lots of them and always love them.    I decided I should do a store front.   I love these candle lanterns.   They keep the dust off the display and they make a very interesting talking point in your collection.   Well here's my latest mini scene.   It is in 1/12 scale.  












I love Raggedy Ann and Andy.

March OMB

I am really a nut for market stalls.   I did two during March.   One a shell stall and one an apple stall.   I didn't use the stall that came with the kit on the apple stall but will use it in the future.   I love the shelf and I will look for more things to add to it and more to add around the base.   But  they are certainly cute.





Every other picture has a penny in he shot so you can get a good feel of the scale, 1/4 " scale.

Enjoy!!!

Filled Suitcase Swap

Just recently I participated in a filled suitcase swap.   It was really fun and I received from really well done items.    Take a look.   The group that I participated in was a Yahoo Group - Swap Shop.   If you like acquiring more minis and want to participate, I'd rally recommend it.

   


 

 



These are the ones I did.   The one with the white shirt is mine.   I sent all the participants a hat and scarf if they wanted to add more to their suitcase.   Since I collect Raggedy dolls, I included one in each because I was sure they would want to take a doll with them.  

A close up.   These were so much fun.

The Year of the Rooster or just a change of pace

I've loved roosters forever.   However, I am really out of wall space.   I had my living room wall, behind my husband's desk, with 3 posters on it.   Loved the posters.   The used to hang in my offiece before I retired.   Hated to see them go but was really in need of a change.

 

Well, they are now in storage and replaced with

 

Now, starting on the top left.   I did the 9  little collages, the 3 framed in black in the middle. And the tiny one just below them.   I did the big white and black rooster on a black back ground and I did the fifth one over from the left in the gray frame and I took the picture to the right of that one.   

I love roosters.   Now I'm ready to celebrate the Chinese Year of the Rooster.

I love changes on my walls!!!!

Change of Pace

I was going to post about changing out my Christmas Scenes and realized I hadn't posted here all my Christmas Scenes.   So there they are and then I'll move on.

All these room boxes, both 1/12 scale and 1/4 scale, were displayed in my living room from Thanksgiving weekend until New Year's Day.

















They were a delightful display and I always look forward to Christmas to display all of them.









After New Years, I decided I would display Antique Shops.   So here goes:

The quarter scale projects are labeled; everything else is 1/12 scale.   You can see I love the antique theme!!!!
