Raggedy Ann Toy Box in Quarter Inch Scale

As you might have noted from earlier posts, I have tried my hand at quarter-inch scale. Raggedy Ann has always been one of my favorites in all sizes and I believe this will be very close to the top of my favorites. The little doll on the bed is 3/4 inch long. I want to swap out the wagon on the top as the one currently on the top is too big. The other one is hiding somewhere in my house. This is from a Karen Gibbs Kit.

Meeting other miniaturists

One of the great things about living in Key West is that I get the chance to meet people passing thru on cruises. This year, I've met two lovely ladies. One who is as passionate about Raggedy Ann and Andy as I am and the other is a miniaturist that I have had the pleasure of exchanging one inch scale miniatures for some time. This is a picture of Barb 90 miles from Cuba. We sure had fun.
