Well, for one thing, she isn't that little. I realised that I have never shown you my one and only "Barbie" sized poly clay doll.
I went to look for her and she wasn't on her usual second shelf space in the bookcase....After some searching, I found her up in the castle....Evidently, the last time I did spring cleaning in the bookcase, I moved her up there out of the way.
You would think that someone would notice how out of place she looks. Now I know that nobody ever looks up there.
I had to get up on a step stool to get her down and put her back where she belongs.
You may be wondering why I am showing her at all....Well, she just sits there day after day, patiently doing nothing...I had planned to have her knitting something when I made her 20 or so years ago.
She is an unsung hero of sorts. I saw an article in a doll magazine. They were having a contest. I thought that I might join in the fun....I found, after making one doll that size, that I never want to do it again. For some reason I find it difficult to switch to the larger size. For me 1/12scale is much easier that 1/6. She is a lesson learned. I didn't enter her in the contest and there she sits year after yearl...I really should start her some knitting so that she will have something to while away the hours.....
On the mini front, I did only one task today.I have been trimming(real) trees and doing (real) laundry. I did about five rows of sock knitting and then found a dropped stitch about 20 rows down....Does that tell you what kind of day I have had?
Anyway, on to the minis. I did put up one of the sconces. I am liking the battery operated lights more and more. I simply cut a hole in the foam core the size of the base and stuck it in. I think that I am going to leave it like that so it will be easier to change the battery.
I think that it was Sans that asked about the blue tinge to the lights. They are a bit blue, but not horrible. The one that is in the copper setting doesn't cast a blue light at all.
These lights are a bit more expensive than the regular hard wired ones, but I got to thinking about it.....You don't have to buy a transformer or wire. No tools needed and you don't have to worry about where you are going to hide the transformer and string the wires.
I hope that they come up with some more styles. I bought two of the sconces, the copper ceiling fixture and a three arm chandelierwhile they were on sale. The chandelier was messed up and I sent it back. I will show you that one when I get the replacement.
Someone on the Greenleaf forum sent an addy for another company that carries these. http://www.manhattandollhouse.com/html/battery_operated_miniature_dol.html They have more styles. I have not ordered from them, but I am tempted. Now I am wondering how hard it would be to make your own. Has anybody out there tried it yet?
OK, I am just rambling on now. I need to go do some more laundry.
See you tomorrow.
