New Project: Doctor's Examination Room

A couple of the ladies in my Small World Daytimers Club made roomboxes from foamcore sheets. We have been given the challenge of creating any kind of room we want and we will have a contest in a few months for the best roombox. I had wanted to do a doctor's exam room and had been saving up items for several months and figured "why not?" I am NOT done with this scene yet, but I will post more pictures when it is completed. I made the scale from a razor as well as the trash can from a toothbrush cover and the sharp container. On the top of the cabinets is a model of a brain. It is actually an eraser I got from a health fair that I painted and glued to a "base" which was a cap from something. Still to make: examination table and x-ray illuminator and a magazine rack. I also need to put the skeleton in the room.

Meet another miniature, my new kitten Sandi

We got her August 6th. She was 6-7 wks. according to the vet. Except for fleas and worms, she is doing fine and loves to eat.

More Garage and Rummage Sale Finds

Route 66 Salt and Pepper Shaker set. I bought this for $5.00 from a garage sale. It is about 1 inch scale size.
This is an unopened Mickey Mouse counted cross stitch with oval frame. The frame is about 2.5 tall and about 2 inches wide. If I can ever figure out how to stitch it, I will hang it in my future toy shop.
I bought this doll at a church rummage sale for 10 cents! She was naked and her hair was a mess. I cut her hair, washed her and put clothes and shoes on her. For some reason, she seems to have one leg slightly longer than the other one. She is about 6 inches tall.
These resin dress forms are about 6.5 to 7 inches tall.
Not sure where I will use this wooden old woman. She stands about 6 inches tall.
This is one of those pencil sharpeners that I painted black and sprayed with a clear matte.
