Happy Thanksgiving in Miniature
Since everyone will be busy Thursday with their own turkey, I figured I'd share my miniature Thanksgiving table today.
The food was made by other collectors in a miniatures food swap several years ago. I forgot I had the items and finally dug them out a few weeks ago.
The cabinet is an antique medicine cabinet hanging on my kitchen wall.
I had originally papered the walls yellow, but decided to tack in different paper backgrounds on each shelf to match the holiday. I think it looks much better.
There is a dark scratched paint look for Halloween at the bottom; gold pattern paper for Thanksgiving in the center; and a green print for Christmas on the top shelf.
It's a good way to share a few miniatures that would be sitting in a box until the holidays. I'll share the other shelves on another day.
* Do you have a special holiday display or an all-seasons display at your house? What is it?
