Hello again!  I really hope everyone had a good summer and that  you are looking forward to a great fall season.
And a hardy Welcome to my new followers! It is nice to "meet" you and I hope you enjoy my blog. Although I'm terrible at replying to comments, I do appreciate them.

Fall is my favorite time of year.  Even in Florida we see can the trees change color, smell the faint smoke of leaves being burnt and a little later in the fall, I will be indulging in apple cider or hot chocolate ( yes, hot chocolate especially in the cooler evenings)

This picture is 1 of 4 permanent "displays" I put together, (before we moved last year) mainly to show off some of my swaps.  The other 3 have the themes of winter, spring and summer.  I have 5 dollhouses, one vignette ( where many of my swaps, kits and creations are) but no roomboxes.

At one time I was a prolific swapper, some one-on-one but mostly central point swaps.  I had to quit all swapping about 2 years ago when my hubby and I decided to put our house up for sale.  ( I just started swapping again through some of my groups on Yahoo.) The first things to be packed up (while we painted and fixed things up) were mostly my "loose" minis.  These were minis that I just set out around the house, on bookcases, curio cabinets and nic nac shelves, etc- just little groupings.  So this last week while I straightened out my craft room, it occurred to me that most of the stuff I was moving around were box after box of the minis I had packed away almost 2 years ago!  Mainly swaps but also Michael's hutches, House of Miniatures kits and things I had purchased for "my someday" projects.   Even though I no longer have the nic nac shelves or bookcase, I do have other options.  So, I've embarked on a mission to make some more vignettes and a few roomboxes.  Some will be permanent, others temporary.  This should keep me busy for a long time.  Hopefully I'll be able to show you my Halloween roombox in the next few days. Almost done.

I came across a new blog the other day that I'd like to tell you about.  Lisa T has just started blogging and although she may be new to blogland, she is not new to miniatures. I really liked what I saw. Check out her blog and pictures at  I did not hesitate to become a follower.

Well, that"s it for today.  I have to get back to my Halloween roombox, want to show it off before Halloween passes me by
