  1. From the album: Two Room Roombox

    I put my iPhone back into the room box to get a better view of the backside of the room and the picture I put in the window (as we just have a wall behind the room box).

  3. Feeling delightfully guilty today - my boss called a couple days ago and asked if I would be able to work a new venue this weekend. It's a Women's Expo being held in a huge casino almost at the Canadian border. She apologized for asking me to work on Mother's Day but she didn't have anyone else to handle it. I graciously agreed - then did the happy dance. I wouldn't be seeing my children on Mom-day anyway, and I'm with my own mother 24/7, even taking her with me when I work out of town because she really can't stay home alone anymore, overnight. DH is home right now - so - he will take care of

    Looking down on the scene. Ray also positioned the little "Butterscotch" girls with cupcakes and lemonade. He takes great care in placing all the items. He's such a doll himself.

    I have two sleeping dolls. One of the dolls I had an artisan make up to look like my granddaughter Renee when she was two years old. I had her do the eyes closed as I just didn't believe anyone could capture my little sweetheart's eyes. I'll have to take a close up shot of her. I changed the clothes that the artisan put on the doll, and ordered a really sweet vest and pant set knitted in silk by an lady in England.

    Nursery side of room box. The "Nanny" is a Heidi Ott doll, as is the baby in the crib. Once again, I'll have to take a close up shot of the beautiful Christening gown and bonnet that I bought for this particular Heidi Ott baby. Its absolutely stunning. The crib was another one of Serena Johnson's creations, while the two shelving units are Bespaq. I forget the artisan who made the change table.

    I had to place this great big puff-cheeked tomcat on the change table.

  8. Today, I cleared out a few more boxes of miniatures (food items). Ray has cleared drawers for me to put my mini food items in that are near to my dollhouses and room boxes so that I can change out. I've also been listing some dolls on Ebay. I have so many. Now I'm taking a few photos and posting them here on Greenleaf to show some of the projects I've been working on. I've also finally (yesterday) cut the final string to the ties to my birth family (excluding my one brother Kevin). Its always been he and I. We were raised in an abusive household and I still have nightmares of being back

    Children's room. Bespaq furniture. I'm going to have to look up bed artisan; however, I believe its Beds by Kelly.

    The structure of the house needs lots more work but I thought I'd set up the magic room to get an idea of what it will look like.

    Close up of one of my favourite Bonnie Justice Dolls. I hope the photo clearly shows Aleah Kay's kitten. He's gorgeous and definitely OAK.

    Left side of diorama. Little girl doll was made by artisan Bonita Lea. I'm trying to remember who made the rocking horse, but its beautifully dressed and hand painted. The burgundy chaise was another one of Serena Johnson's creations. I hope you don't mind me sharing who the artisans' names of some of my collections, but I've had a couple of people ask me. Let me know if you find this annoying or if its not allowed. Thank you.

    Photo looking down on the Nursery side of room box. I like when the sunlight shines naturally through the window to the left. I didn't put a photo in that side as that window is lit by our south facing living room window. When the light comes through at certain times of the day, it is just so beautiful.

    On the floor are two dolls that were made by an artisan that goes by the name Butterscotch on Ebay. Her dolls are wonderful for their moveability and positioning abilities. As Ray had free reign in setting up this scene (I chose the furniture pieces). He chose the train set

  19. Two weeks to departure! I'm working like a maniac trying to enter scads of information into our family tree database. Scads of relatives have been sending me all kinds of great stuff, so much so that the backlog was almost three years. I'm now up to about Sept 2012. We're going to see many of these relatives on the Big Tour, and I don't want them to think that their efforts have gone unappreciated -- after all, I'll probably be pressing them for more info!

  20. I spend a good bit of yesterday and today tweaking the itinerary for our upcoming Big Motor Trip. We'll be on the road from May 22 to June 22, including a week in Cuba -- Missouri to Miami and back again, with a lot of stops in between. The stops are a mixture of friends, relatives, miniaturists and miniatures, including Ron's in Orlando and the Miniature Cottage in Nashville.

    Crystal chandelier in dining room. I'd bought a larger one for the Living Room that matched this, but (and let this be a lesson to everyone), didn't check out that it worked. It sat in my Miniatures' Electrical Box for a few years before Ray installed it......it didn't work. Couldn't return or exchange as I'd had it for too long. And yes, it was one of those items that cost the big bucks.
