Back from a little getaway...and it did involve minis!
DH and I just got back from an overnight getaway to Holland, Michigan. One of today's activities was exploring Wee Dollhouse Shoppe. I only got a few things but these hanging pots just cried out to be on the boarding house porch. Harriet was pleased, lol. We also explored a couple of antique shops/malls.
Yesterday we visited Windmill Island Gardens. They have a real working windmill that grinds flour for several area restaurants. That tour was really cool. Then we explored the rest of the gardens and found this mini village. It looks like many of the houses are actually vintage.
The people of the village are doing chores and daily activities all over the town. Churning butter, putting wash on the line, loading boats, etc. It's very detailed.
Last evening we went to the beach to watch the sun set over Lake Michigan. Our trip was brief but it was a great way to end a very busy week. :-)
I've been happily married for 33 years to my high school sweetheart and we have three great kids. All are young adults. I'm currently working part time as an instructional assistant at the local elementary school. My mini life is especially important to me because it takes me away (better than a bubble bath!) from the stresses of real life. I've been involved with mini-ing since the late 1980s with a break for about 10 years while my children were young.
My faith and my family are very important to me. I am so thankful that God blessed me with the gift of creativity!
