Collections—Elephants

Today’s collection focuses on ELEPHANTS!!!!   I love elephants!
This collection started about 52 years ago. When Ron and I were married,He had 2 elephants and I had 1; and after displaying them on our coffee table I got lots of elephants for Christmas along without statements like “I saw your collection!”   It was born.  


Most of my elephants!

June 2019 OMB-Bedroom

Update!!!   The more I looked at this, the More I knew It needed MORE pictures.



MUCH COZIER!!!!



In 2010 I did my first name day room.  Since then I had three done and had two
 to go.  Done are the living room, kitchen and dining room.  Just finished was the bedroom.  I have one more to go.  At this stage, I don’t have a clue what it will be.

May has been a very productive mini month

My one a month bunch was completing my boat house.  This is quarter scale.  









Then I decided I could not go to Lakeland next month to do a fun day project with an unfinished project waiting to be completed. 

Santa’s workshop is done and it’s in 1/12 scale.  









Then I had swap items that needed to be finalized into Mel’s junk shop.  It is 1/12 scale. 





I am so very happy to have completed 3 projects. And the month isn’t over.

Come back next month to see if I am as productive!!!

Funky owls

When I finished the 50 pears I realized I had 7 days before my next online class.  Whatever will I do?   How about 7 funky owls in 7 days.    Size 6x6 inches. I think they are cute.
