Mostly a blog about my miniatures. I sometimes get sidetracked.
Don't forget to poke the photos to enlarge!

A Day to Think About It....
Look what I found on my front porch yesterday afternoon!
It was fun, because I ordered these from HBS a couple of weeks ago. They sent me an e mail ad telling of a sale on House of Miniatures kits.
I like these kits because they can be bashed in a number of different ways.
HBS had five different kits on sale for the phenomenal price of $1.00 each. I must have been one of the first people to order. I ordered four of each of four kits and got them all.
The next day on one of the forums, somebody said that they were all gone.
I paid, with shipping, $22.50 for all sixteen kits. They will get used. I usually find them at garage sales and the 22 st. Antique Mall. The cheapest I ever found them for was $2.00 each.
My supply was pretty much gone. Count me in as a happy camper. The funny part was....I was reading e mail yesterday afternoon and found a letter from HBS saying they had been delivered! I never heard the door bell ring.(Fed Ex)
I went and looked and sure enough, the box was sitting out in the open on the porch, where anybody could have picked it up.
As for the thinking about it in the title, I am having Wednesday Witches Mini meeting here today, so I don't think that I am going to get much done.
So I pulled out some of the trim pieces that I have and stuck them up against the booth.
So far, I either like putting plain basswood on the front and carving designs on it or painting on the wood that is there.
I like the rope stuff. I have had it for a very long time....I never can bring myself to use it. It just seems a bit heavy and out of scale.
The stuff I have on the edge of the roof looks like something that you would find on a Swiss Chalet.
So....I am going to think about it for the rest of the day whilst I cook.
