I spent some time this afternoon searching google images to find rooster plate patterns for the open shelf cabinet in the mini kitchen. Last night I ordered four mini rooster mugs to place in front of the plates and then this cupboard is filled. The wide variety of patterns available has inspired me to start collecting rooster/chicken plates for my real kitchen. We've been using my current dinnerware for many years so it's time for a change. Once I've collected enough dishes, I'll pack my current ones away until I'm ready for a change again. This is gonna be fun!
I made some extra plates, platters and bowls to use on the walls and at the dining table. My mini people are going to mix their patterns, too, I think.
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!
