The Tea Shop is Open for Business

I mentioned awhile back that I would be finishing up my little tea shop before I get on with my next miniature project. Today I did that and here are the results.This first picture shows the little tea cart I finally finished today. The little tea set on top was from a swap, can't remember what or when.


Now you can see inside... I have added chairs and a little table to the ladies room, food to the pastry holder and the tea cart as I mentioned before.

And here is a close up of the food, all came from swaps.

I will be moving all these pictures over to picture trail soon. Just in time to start another project.
Let me know what you think.

A Brand New Day

After feeling miserable with a cold all weekend I am much better today and getting lots of work done. I have spent the morning catching up on a lot of jobs around the house. We are getting cable phone put in so couldn't go near the computer until now which was good to keep me working on all the things that needed to be done.

Here is a picture of a little building I bought at a yard sale on Saturday. It has a hole on the top that made it look like a bird house. However the lower portion includes two doors that open up onto two inside shelves. The item had been on sale at Big lots and I had put off buying it until suddenly it was gone. Good that I waited as this was a LOT cheaper at the YS.

And here it it with the door open

I am going to make some sort of miniature scene inside.... I would love some ideas. Just write them in the comment section.

Time to Relax and Catch up

The dizzying travel around the country side to attend BlueGrass festivals is over for a couple of months. Three festivals in 5 weeks may? be a bit too much. We Enjoyed the music, we got to see several friends we have met at other festivals and now it is time to stay home. I have to admit I started getting a cold on Friday and by Saturday it was affecting me a bit. It didn't stop us from attending a huge garage sale that morning but by mid afternoon I was a mess and ended up sleeping away the afternoon and evening...... I missed seeing one of the groups I really wanted to see but they will be at our next scheduled festival and Bill bought me one of their CD's so is isn't so bad.

I am hopeful now to get back to my mini making as soon as I can quit coughing.........
I have to finish up my little tea shop and another project I have started on but not mentioned here yet.

So keep checking in....

Tomorrow I will post the picture of a birdhouse type building I bought at the garage sale and want to turn into a 1/2 scale "something???" Any and all suggestions are welcome. Just add a comment if you think of something.
