I actually finished a miniature project


I have finally finished a project I started a couple of years ago. It is a scene of the exterior of a Southwestern style house. I had been collecting a lot of different pieces of pottery, most from Dusty Acres Trading Post. I had wanted to find a way to display them The actual box was started by a mini friend Peg while we attended a Miniature workshop. She gave it to me cause I knew what I wanted to do with it. And because she is a GREAT friend.
Inside the window frames is a picture of the inside of a SW style house. Unfortunately I could not get a good picture of it. There is a picture frame that goes with this but it looked better to show on line without the frame. The framed room box will hang on a wall.

Winter came back



Woke up this morning to a couple of inches of snowIt was forecast this time, unlike last week.
There is rain scheduled to follow so snow may not last long but it is pretty while it is here.
Here are pictures of our back patio and my garden shed. Notice the pink flamingo still hunting for food. Also the tree behind the seats is an Atlas Cedar. One of my favorites. It is a funky looking tree with branches going everywhere. It looked nice today with snow on it.

We are thankful that all the leaves have been raked now and the poor fallen branches were picked up before the snow fell this time. Here is a picture of the leaves awaiting pickup. Our township comes by with a vaccum type thing and sucks up all the leaves. It is fun to watch.
They got here two days before this snowstorm. Thankfully!!!

I guess with snow on the ground it is probably time to start decorating for Christmas. Oh yes, and get back to my miniatures. I have been neglecting them.
