I'm alive, really, and I finally had some time to play!!
I made a bit of progress on some of the furnishings for the 1950s house. I purchased an all white cabinet, stove, and fridge set from a lovely ebay seller. She included some fun accessories, too. More on that later. The appliances were fairly contemporary looking so I started by extending the back of the range and rounding the edges.
While the glue dried I worked on the little nightstand/dresser for the boy's room. I also blended the wagon wheel color into the bed's color.
The edges are rounded and now it's time to paint!
This is part way through the process.
Here are the finished stove and fridge along with the first of the cabinets.The toaster is really cool, isn't it? I just changed the yellow the seller had painted it to turquoise. The pots were originally red with white speckles. I need to add a clock and other details to the back of the stove and brand labels to both appliances. I'm very pleased with the results.
Here are all the lower cabinets completed. I need to decide what I want to do about the upper cabinets. This set just has the lower ones.
This beauty came from an antiquing trip with my husband. The scale is perfect! I don't know exactly what I'm doing with it yet but planning is half the fun. :-)
I'm sorry I've been away so long. Life just hasn't allowed much time for minis lately. Winter is coming, though. That's when I have the most time to play.
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!
