But first, a minor bathroom update - just a jar of bath oil beads and a bar of soap. The jar took no creativity. It's a bottle of nail art beads just as it came out of the package. The soap was cut from a real bar of soap and rests in a seashell soap dish.
I added my "aye" to the few other opinions expressed and there's now a small island in the kitchen. Most of the ones that I liked on Pinterest were sort of dressed up work tables. I was drawn to the wood tops and rustic black finishes so that's what I made.
A salad with all the trimmings is being prepared. The salad bowl is an acorn top. The dressing bottle was made from an electrical connector of some sort. They come in red and are shaped like a bottle. I hand carved the knife and made some of the polymer clay veggies and the bacon.
I haven't purchased many things for this project but when I saw these mugs with the red roosters, I just had to have them. :-)
The cheesecake on the island shelf and the round loaf of bread on the counter were both made by Gaye, of My Small Obsession.
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!
