November QS OMB - It's all about ME - No not me, but Mary Englegreit!

I was very close to using my 'one free pass' card for November.   It has been a very busy month and I just didn't see how I would get a project done.   Well, never give up I say.   I thought what project did I have that was started and could be finished.   I had built this building (it's a Ann Bramlet house) some many months ago and I got this great inspiration that it would make a great Mary Englebreit gift shop.

You will be one of the first to know that my long-term goal is do a set of shops on Main Street USA.   Of course, it will need a Mary Englebreit shop.

There it is when I decided I could do the project this month.   Built but not even close to being done.  

 I wanted this shop to have lots of stuff and I do believe I satisfied that requirement.    Don't you love the sign "Your husband called and said buy whatever you want!".   Very nice of him. 

At the end of the store is a curtain set and above it, a sign that says we make custom curtains and drapes.  
 Scene from the top.   Books scattered on the bed - all ME books. 
 Clocks on the door frame. 
 A view through the window. 

 Another view of the shop.  

I think I will go shopping now!

NAME Day Pub - QS

I am finally rested up after National Dollhouse Miniature Month.   The October OMB was my NAME Day Pub.   The project  was the corner table with booth.   I absolutely loved this project.   I just barely completed it in October - but I did make the deadline.   

The name is different from the one that came with the kit because 'I change things' and my husband loves foxes.  

The Front of the Pub.
 Another view of the front with a little landscaping.   Still needs a bit more, but so far - so good. 

A little different angle. 

 The inside of the pub.   The kit came with lighting.   I didn't like it.   I also cut the roof into a "U" shape so you can see inside the pub.
 A little better lighting for the interior.   Ran out of little people and still need a bartender.   I think I have found one and it will be added soon. 

Some signs on the wall.   Really tough to see them without sticking your nose in the room.

The above - words to live by.
