Wee "c" Miniatures Show 2017

by brae  

Shameless plug first - the November Online Show is open for Early Bird shopping today and opens to the public tomorrow morning, so come on by!

----------------

Tonight, I headed to the annual Wee "c" Miniatures Show.  It's a smaller show but there are always wonderful finds to be discovered.  The show is open again tomorrow if you are in the area.  :]

There's always a bargain table in the lobby with the raffle prizes.  I was able to score a few sheets of vintage wallpaper.  I was having a hard time choosing something for the mill, and I think the pale yellow diamond pattern on the right will be lovely in the upper room.

A Little More in Miniatures - Boston fern leaves to make your own plants.

The Garden Path - a lovely purple bowl by Jason Feltrope.

Fabrics, including an amazing brown houndstooth.

Cea's Unique Finds - this vendor had a lot of what I am guessing were estate pieces.  A had good luck at this table.

A tiny quarter scale hot plate.  Guess who is going to have to build a quarter scale house now.  :D

This was a mockup by Donna Bahls for tiny working rubber stamps.

There is only one true working stamp as the rest are just the mockup display, but I couldn't pass it up.  Even if only the tea cup truly works, the others will make for great accessories in a scene.

This corner cabinet is marked Lanny Gregg 79.

It's such an unusual piece and in remarkable condition.  The drawers do open.  :]

The final mini of the night was this marvelous bird marked J. Holmes 82.  I love all things New England, and this is so indicative of that style.

Happy Halloween 2017

by brae  

I have had very little time for making minis other than completing my etsy orders, but I am here to wish you all a Happy Halloween!!!  :D  Life is good, though, and so posts will continue to be sporadic.  Happy mini-ing!

Also, you can see the Halloween contest results here.  There were a ton of fabulous entries to celebrate the spooky season!  :]

Say what now? Yep, I'm on Instagram

by brae  

I have dipped my toe into social media and signed up for Instagram.  :D  Huge step for me, really.  I have no idea what I am doing, so be kind.  I'm still rocking a ten year old cell phone, so these icons and functions are like learning a foreign language.  As it is, I had to dig out an iPad I won in a promotion to upload.  I posted the Haunted Heritage since I had a square photo of it at the ready.  I have no idea how to do hashtags, so it looks like there are youtube tutorials in my future.  I suppose it will all come in time.

HBS Halloween Contest

by brae  

I've submitted an entry in the HBS Second Annual Halloween Contest.  Voting runs 10/16 through 10/22.  You can vote by liking the individual picture in the album linked here.  I would greatly appreciate the support.  Mine is the one with the two dolls in the sewing room (the girl doll is dressed in butterfly wings).
