You and me go together like peanut butter & Jelly





Every morning for school I make Jake’s lunch. I thought it would be fun to re-create that in miniature. Every now and then he gets the classic peanut butter & jelly.

The pictures aren't that great because it's getting dark outside. I made everything except for the silver knife sticking out of the peanut butter jar. The jelly jar was a challenge, because I am not a perfectionist I settled for my sons lego piece-the jar's lid is removable and I am not happy with the apple or the bread-but I am not a perfectionist lol.

Remember the fruit and cheese board I showed you a few post down? Well I thought it needed a bottle of wine. I made one out of sculpey. What do you think?





I had to share with you this video I found on youtube. She is a young girl who built her dollhouse out of folders, card and scrap she says. It is amazing and a must see. If she was my little sister, Oh the fun we would have!


So how was your weekend? Tell me did you make anything too?

That young girls house is really great, you can see she's put a lot of thought into both the house and the landscaping. Thanks for posting the video.

I love the lunch prep board, the style really appeals to me. And way to go on the wine bottle - looks like it might have been in the cellar for years and years ;)

Not much mini activity here on the weekend but I did go to a Doll and Bears fair looking for trims and laces, bought a few little pieces. There were a couple of mini stalls there too so of course I couldn't go past.... Other than that I did what I'm really good at when it comes to minis - procrastinated - if there was a world championship for it I'd take it out year after year :) I'm in the early stages of a scratch build which is a shop with living above, my son presented me with the cut out walls and floors in Christmas 2008!! I've changed my mind a million times about room layout, where the stairs will go (or not go), will it be front or back opening - on and on it goes. However - I'm getting very close to hammer, nails and glue now but first I have to repaint the shop front because I've decided it's too dark for the soft shabby brocante theme I want inside. *sigh*

Hi Norma!

I'm glad you looked at the video, her house is very creative.

Thanks for the feedback on the stuff I made also.

Sounds like you have your hands full will this project...nails and hammers sound scary. I don't like building at all :) Don't feel bad about procrastination-I am the worse at it.

This is was nice that you got to see miniatures this weekend. Here in Florida these places are next to none. But I am always surprised at the unexpected places I find miniatures. Thank you for your visit.
