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.
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.
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.
On October 4th, I posted about a customer of my husband wanted a Hunter's Den. This is (about) finished. There are a few pieces that I am looking for that will probably be added. This was difficult because I couldn't find a wild boar and doing something for someone else is tricky because you can't read their mind in what they are thinking. I did talk to him once over the month and found out a few specifics. This project is more or less done. It will change a bit, I expect, over the next couple of weeks. I'd like to add a coat rack. I might add another plate for a friend. Might add a person (although I generally don't add people). If it changes, I will post a follow up.
One of the things I talked to him about was a favorite sports team. He's a hunter and likes to cook so I added a screen for a cooking show. Their are a couple of cook books next to the chair. One the wall is a picture of a wild boar. Several animals and a fish mounted. An alligator next to his chair. This project was fund and I am pleased with the way it looks.
