Southwest Roombox

Southwest scene. I glued in and grouted the tile floor.

Picnic Scene using an aquarium

I created this outdoor cookout scene using a ten gallon aquarium I got for free! It was brand new, someone had in their garage left from the previous owner. In the scene is a sand box, wagon, ring toss game, dog, cat, barrel with cold coke, six pack of beer, 12 pack of Coke, Lemon pie, cookies, etc.

The Small World Daytimers Club Clay Projects

During a recent Clay Day of our Small World Daytimers Club, we made a Pinapple Upside Down Cake and a Ham.

Michael's Puzzle Dollhouse and Furniture

Here is another "Someday" project, the Michael's 1/2 inch scale house and furniture kit. These were on sale.

Brief Cat Moment

One of my cats would like to say "hello" or "feed me". This is Rusty, he is about 11. He was one of thirty cats rescued from a house of 100 cats. He is a very happy and lovable boy.

Dollar Tree Find

These four skeletons come tied together so that you can string them up. They are perfect dollhouse sized. I bought three packets of them! Great for haunted houses, doctor's office, etc.

More Garage and Rummage Sale Finds

Miniature tea pot NEVER out of package, 25 cents!
Bag of miniatures for like 25 cents!

Skeleton necklace. Have not figured out if I will wear it for Halloween or use it on one of my dollhouses at Halloween.

Small Styrofoam balls and Halloween sequence confetti. I am going to glue the Halloween confetti to mini twig wreaths with thin ribbon for Halloween wreaths.
Any ideas for these capped tubes??
Packets of beads, each 10 cents each!
I got these glass paints and fabric dimensional paints for 10 cents each!
I got a whole bag of these for real cheap. Any ideas on how I can use them???
These napkin rings were $1.00. I was thinking about making them into planters.
Here is Halloween ribbon that I can make into bags, gold presents and decorative snow. All of this was dirt cheap!
All this 6 inch doll needs is a cleaning, hair cut and some clothes. I am going to spray paint the table and use in my Michael's half inch scale house. The table and shirt were 10 cents each! The doll was 50 cents.
I found this in the toy section of a local church rummage sale. I think I will redo it with some paint and make other changes. This was $1.50.

Garage and Rummage Sale Finds

This is one of those "books" you can hide all your money, lol, BUT you can also create a miniature scene in it, too. The name of the book is "Treasure Island". Someday I will create a scene in it, keep watching.
