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.

My last photos are shot in low light. A new experiment. I changed my room walls and added a picture window with a snowy view. It was perfect for my "White Christmas" pictures. We rarely have snow on Christmas so this will be my white Christmas. I will take more pics in natural light and post those later in the week. I have met some extrodinary people, blog to blog, and feel like I am not contributing to the conversation until I can post my thoughts and responses. When I was a little girl, my grandmother and I would walk into the woods behind my grandparents house and gather pinecones, sweetgum ball, and China berriers. China Berriers were such a mess to clean, but once the skins were removed, grandma would boil them and lay them on newpaper to dry. We then strung them on fishing line and sprayed them our chosen color of that particular Christmas. We cut pine boughs, holly, and cedar. The pine cones and sweetgum balls were always painted gold and dipped in glitter. My 2 brothers helped us wrap and string the garland together. It was a family event and we all did our part. She loved Christmas and she passed that on to me. Christmas was always about family and good food, friends and games. I try to continue that tradition but life is so hectic now compared to then sometimes I forget how important traditions are. I have sold several item this week and am also building and furnishing a two story Barbie house for a little girls Christmas. When you really think about it, all of us that sell our items for Christmas are taking part in a childs Christmas memories. I kind of like that. Boy, I have been around the world and back in this post. Its been that kind of week (My REAL job is very hectic right now...open enrollment-need I say more. Everyone have a great Monday. Catch you later in blogsphere.
