#Halloween: Addams Family #Dollhouse

This is a cool project! Myself, I prefer tours without all the explanations so I listen without sound, but she does explain how she's planning the house. Here's the YouTube link to one of the tours.

Minis in New Movie Downsizing

This looks very cool! Imagine being able to live in - and afford that mansion! There has to be a catch, of course... But some cool minis and camera tricks here.

The Best Time of Year! Halloween Minis!

Oh it's that time of year! Time to see what new stuff is around.

Amazingly Hobby Lobby and Michael's all have Halloween, Fall and Christmas stuff out already. Get them all at once. haa!

I love mini Halloween stuff, though. Michaels had their Spooky Town stuff out with a few new figures.

But the mini section caught my eye. Lots of fun stuff to choose from so I'll be making many trips!!

Here's just a few I got today. Love the skellie animals!!

Dollar Tree also had some new LED lights - these look like fiber optics in a thin plastic tube. Pretty cool. I can see these around a house or for trim. Use two AA batteries. There is also a purple strand. And at only $1, who's complaining?

Mini Lp's! Record Store Project!

Finally got a "little" something done for the Record Store Project! (See previous pics.)

Yes, little. Making record albums - LP covers. This is only a  "small" start considering how many I'll need. ha! But they're pretty cool, huh?

Oh, only 100 or so to go. haaaaaa! Who's counting? (Well, not yet.)

Decorated Miniature Glass House in Shabby Chic

Here's the finished glass house, for now. I really love the shape of this structure! Nice way to display some items that'll eventually go into a full roombox or house. (Previous photos)

The back wall is just a piece of mat board covered with scrapbook paper. Loved this print! The floor is the tweed side of a piece of picture frame mat board. I probably should add a pretty throw rug, too.

Every place needs a dog, even in mini!

The interesting chair and sofa were actually sold as Christmas ornaments! 
(Resin from Hobby Lobby.)

My friend, Kitty, made the great drink and cake.

The Latest Miniature Finds! Shabby Chic!

Summer is flea market time here in Wisconsin! I'm lucky to come across some great finds, meaning neat things  - and  cheap! 

One of the finds was this bunch of flower punches. Oh, happy me - they were only $5! 

Of course, it also means another project is in the works. Kind of. I've been planning a Ladies' Shoppe for a looong time, so I've been making things and putting them away. Well, this great glass case I found last week lets me display things until the projects are ready! Always a shame to have stuff stored in boxes unseen, isn't it? Of course, who knows, I may like it enough to keep it this way in the end!

 Pretty cool case, it's 8 1/2" square at the base. I found that a picture frame mat I had has a nice tweed side I'm going to use, for now, as flooring. I'm adding a false wall in the back with that shabby rose print. I like to have a wall for art and shelves. (See finished, decorated case here.)

Here are some items I made before, too. The pretty couch is resin and actually was sold as a Christmas ornament at Hobby Lobby. I have several pieces I was lucky to find since they don't seem to offer them anymore.  I repainted and added French labels to the small chest. I love the shabby chic style! The tall corner case was one of those cheap punch-out furniture kits, and I repainted the smaller bookcase. I have another larger bookcase filled with perfumes, too. I'll share more photos as I progress.
