  1. Fran's grab bags are available again on Miniatures.com. I have always found them to be a great deal.

  2. That's a grand idea. This way you can open the whole thing up to admire all the tiny details inside the store. Don't you find that part of the delight is remembering how fun it was to MAKE all of the tiny extras - the things that most people's eyes don't even catch? This morning I was trying to figure out how to make some Christmas-themed bakery boxes, first checking out eBay to maybe purchase them. Nah - they charge a LOT for just two tiny boxes. So I can't wait to experiment making my own today. And years from now looking at them will bring a smile.

  3. Oh my gosh - who'da thunk'a that!!! They're so perfect! Where do you display your houses and room boxes Tillie? I'm JUST starting on my Christmas Bake Shop and as big as the room box I have is, I wish I would have room for even more! I'm using one of those 'Street Of Shops' rooms boxes for the shop but I'm thinking I might need to cut an opening in the side and build another shop (the smaller of the three shops) right next to it for seating and MORE STUFF...

  4. Thanks for asking Holly. The little fruits in the fruit bowl (on the buffet in dining area) are made from Sculpey clay and what I hoped would look like the grapes are just micro beads glued to some thread. The 'sunflowers' in the planter on the side of the building are actually dried flowers from some 'volunteer' plants I was yanking out as I was cleaning the yard outside. I was going to toss them into the garbage can when I realized they looked sort of like little sunflowers! They were dried out and brown by this point but a little craft paint was all it took. What are supposed to look l

  6. Finished the little things to complete the Hippie House - doodahs and geegaws that I usually forget. The little bicycles on the porch are actually 'embellishments' by the Jesse James 'Dress it Up' line.

  7. Tillie, I know what you mean about slowing down as we get older (although I still do a double take when I look in a mirror and see an old lady looking back at me!). I do lot of hand stuff to keep my arthritis under control, since the usual pain meds do a number on my GERDS. (Sorry for the TMI; getting old isn't for sissies)

  12. I did my camper exactly 5 years ago this month. My adult daughter asked for it on Thanksgiving Day as a Christmas present - I somehow managed to get it done within 15 days. It was a fun build I almost bought another one the other day for $10 but it was sold already. Might still do another one!
