A Morning at the Museum...

This morning I went to the Mini Time Machine Museum http://www.theminitimemachine.org/
here in Tucson, to pay my dues...  I can't walk in there without wandering around.

I remembered the camera.  So you get to look too.  I know it's not the same as being there, but maybe it will entice you to come to Tucson, just to look.

I have enough photos for a couple of days of blogging. I hope you enjoy.

These first two room boxes are wall hanging and about six inches deep.   That's what is amazing about them.  They give the illusion of being much deeper. 

Jean-Jacques Brisson  did these in 2003 and did a fantastic job.  Do enlarge them and look at all of the detail!

Everything in them makes you think that it is a whole room.  The stairs look like you could actually walk up them to get to the second floor... Remember?  Only six inches of space!
This is one that Pat Arnell, the owner of the museum did.  I can say that I watched it come together.  I couldn't picture what she was doing at first, but after she was done, I understood.  It is a little shelter made from discarded doors, windows and other pieces of discarded wood that the inhabitants have put together.  Really an interesting piece The doll is by Marcia Backstrom.  It's called "Hobo Shack"
 The photo doesn't do this building justice.  Mark Turpin made the windows by hand and everything else in the setting too.

There are plants and other things inside.  Unfortunately, it is hard to see all of the detail in this photo.



And last but not least, I bought a bust of Michelangelo and a new puppy.  I actually have one of these puppies already, but now Spike Junior can be in two places at once.

It is debatable as to where Michelangelo is going to reside.  I think that I will hide him until I decide.... Less arguments that way.

I am going back to try to finish cleaning the workroom now.

See you tomorrow.

The dollhouse museum was the highlight of one of my trips to Tucson a couple years ago. I wandered for hours!
