All dressed up and no where to go.

Welcome to my world of little furniture designs.

A journey into the OOAK designs for the 1-6 scale fashion diva and collectors. I have always been a crafter and I have used my knowledge of power tools and paint to create eclectic furniture and dioramas.

Halloween in 6th scale

Happy halloween! My husband and I have dressed up to hand out candy to trick or treaters for years. Halloween parties are always our favorites. I can just smell the bonfire smoke and hear the crackle of the fire when the kids were roasting hot dogs. hay rides through the woods, Witches grave, I know you had one also. I have been going to witches grave since I was 15 years old. I think my favorite Halloween was the year I dressed in a three piece suit, white shoes, a felt hat, fake mustache and nose. (What a man and boy did I have a hot date with me for the dance) Mike dressed as a woman, blue taffeta drop waist dress, I borrowed from my mom, Pantyhose, flats, wig, and lots of bling. Oh, did I tell you Mike has a beard and mustache. He won first prize and danced with every woman and man there. We had the very best time. I will have to find my pics and post one. We were a striking couple. LOL Before the night was over he had taken his pantyhose off and they were hanging around his neck like a winter scarf. So many good memories. I am very lucky to have married my best friend. He always makes me laugh. Enjoy my Halloween pics. My "real job" is getting quiet stressful, end of month payroll and reports. May not be able to post for a few days. Everyone on the East coast be safe. You are in my prayers.

AHHHH, at last...cooler weather.

At last, cooler weather in East Texas. Fall is my absolute favorite season. Why wouldn't it be...Halloween, Thanksgiving and then Christmas. My newest pics were made in my new "room". If I can draw it, my husband and I can build it. I am beaming, I am so proud of my diorama room. The walls are all interchangeable. The ones pictured are foam core covered in wallpaper. Don't you just love the door. The interior wall can be removed for a larger room. The possibilities are limitless. The room as it is, has a 1920's feel to it but with a switch of the foam core, I can be off in a different direction. I have been going through pics of my dioramas and realized, many of them are like my home. Well, not exactly. My home is traditional--eclectic--but traditional. I do find myself using colors I do not use in my home. I am taking liberties in my doll house that I do not take in my house. The dining room is now my new favorite diorama. A pedestal table and covered chairs with nailhead trim, a fabric runner and place mats in traditional autumn colors, the perfect dining experience. Have a look around in my new "house". I hope you enjoy.
