Off to Philadelphia Miniaturia I GO (6 Word Saturday)

I am up very early this morning, getting ready to go to the biggest Miniature Show I have ever attended.  I can hardly wait.  

I know I will be tempted to spend a lot of money but am hopeful I will mostly bring home inspiration and enthusiasm to get back to some of the projects I have already started!

I will have pictures and stories to tell when I get back.  Please check here Monday for all the details.

Getting inventory for my mini bookshop

Because a good bookshop must have lots of books I have started to collect them and preparing to make some.
       Here are a couple of pictures I took. The first is the collection of books I have purchased already made up and the second is some printie sheets I have made up, to use for covers for a lot of looks.  I don't know if I will use all the ones I printed out but time will tell.
I found these on eBay and on line.
These are from a couple of printie locations on line.

Now for the real fun.  Tomorrow a few friends and I will be going to the Philadelphia Miniaturia, a HUGE show in Cherry Hill, NJ.  It will have the best of the best of mini things to see and buy.  I hope to find a few things for my shop and also to find a LOT of inspiration.   I will try to report in on Monday on all that I saw.
This is a show I have wanted to attend for years now and so happy I can finally go.

Tea Cup Tuesday #11

I almost didn't get to post today because we have had company the last few days but they left early this AM so here I am.  I found  a couple of pictures I can feature here.  They were taken a while back and not used.  

     Most tea cups just have saucers but the two sets I am showing today are luncheon or snack sets.
They have the cup and it sits on a plate big enough for your sandwich or others goodies.

I did not take a picture of the back stamps so don't know who made them.  Maybe someone will recognize them.  I will try to be more complete next time.
