I wanted to show you all the wonderful Christmas minis I received form a very talent miniaturist, Deb C. I was thrilled to receive these in a swap because, despite my huge collection of Christmas minis, I don't have any of these! Everything is so beautifully detailed. I gave up on gingerbread men a long time ago-just could not get them uniform. The cherry cheesecake, pumpkin pie, Christmas cake and cupcakes are things I haven't tried to make but I am now inspired. The candles are so delicate, they will be on my fireplace mantle. And the floral arrangement will be the centerpiece on dinning room table. Thank you so much Deb!
About this time each year, I think about my New Year's Resolutions list. This list is a little different than most I have done because it is only about minis. It's divided into 3 parts. The first is an on-going list of the supplies I need or will need soon. Fimo, paint brushes, etc. The second part is what I call "spur of the moment" ideas. These are ideas that pop up in my head at the most inconvenient times and I need to make a note of that idea right then or I'll forget it. For example, my Fishing cabin is about 70% done. I was outside talking to my neighbor when the idea that I needed a fishing creel just popped into my head. Ever happen to you? Luckily, our conversation didn't last long so I remembered long enough to write it down Now the third part of this list is subject to change "without notice". It is a list of new projects, unfinished project and things I want to learn. I allow myself all sorts of flexibility with this and do not put myself in any type of timeline. So what's this have to do with anything? Well, last summer I posted that I had hoped to start a new dollhouse in October but it never happened. So that is now somewhere on the bottom of my list
in favor of....this
This is not a dollhouse but a display of some sort shaped like a dollhouse. I have no idea what this was for but I found it at a Flea market for only $5.00. This may be the answer to my problem of what to do with all my minis still stored away after 2 years. It's barely 30" tall but I think it will work because it is so open. It's very light weight and you can see it's put together with nuts and bolts. I don't know which is front or back but that's a good thing. I'll just decorate both sides as front. There is one other unique feature...it has carrying handles!
This will be my last post til after Christmas so I want to thank all of you for your support, encouragement and kind comments. Whether you are a follower or an occasional visitor, your friendship means the world to me
So from my house to yours,
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year
Best wishes to all,
