Long, Long Ago....
It was built from one of the unfinished wooden plaques that you can get just about anywhere craft supplies are carried. I think that I got this one at Walmart. It was at least twenty years ago that I put this together.
I found the candlestick light at a thrift shop. I combined the two simply with glue... Finished the plaque and then glued on the light with plain old white glue... That was it.
It made a well lighted display for a few minis and could sit almost anywhere in the house.
Since I mentioned that someone was selling them at a show a week or so ago, I thought that you might like to see some of my first people.
This was a cook and a retired sea captain.
I especially liked the stirrup pants.
The gardener's smock actually has miniature smocking on the front and shoulders. Hard to see in the photo.
It is very straight laced and not very comfortable looking.
I do believe that those are about the third and fourth pieces that I did... Not sure.
Some of these pieces and people made it into Nutshell News...
I have two medical appointments today. So, I will probably not get a lot of mini making in today... The appointments are a couple of hours apart, so we are going over to see April and Amare.
Back to cleaning in the workroom. The sign is still up. "Do not disturb! Cleaning in progress!" I may as well get something done until we have to leave.
See you tomorrow.
