The Obsession Continues

...well miniature wise :D

A special thank you and welcome to my new followers. Thank you Jas, Tishanab, and Leo Furtado, daydreamer, and susanne, small thoughts, Josie and Chipironni as well as thank you to everyone!

Besides that I have nothing to say or show. But I've been productive! As soon as I solve the mystery of the missing SD card for my camera, I can do a show and tell.

Oh! I was looking around on Etsy the other day and came across a lady who makes dollhouses for learning disabled children maybe even Autistic I think, but anyway you might know who I'm refferring to because in miniatures it's a small world. I couldn't help but think how cool to use it as a learning tool, then again the origin of the dollhouse began as a way to teach girls how to take care of the household. So fascinating! But I prefer miniature housework anytime over real housework.

I want a doll! I want a doll!

I watched Valley of the Dolls courtesy of Youtube for the first time the other day. It was not what I expected but hey it was the 60's. If they were to remake the movie it would be scandalous. I want a doll! I want a doll! Or I will boil you in oil!

This one is the star of the show. She's watercolor and charcoal (they all are).

These images like my banner are from my "in progress" paper doll fashion show...built inside a really cool cabinet I found at a garage sale. Right now I can't find any pictures of it...

It's commonplace as a miniature enthusiasts at some point you begin to see everything in miniature, and believe you me I see everything on a small scale! Sometimes I wish for a magic miniaturizing wand :D I've been holding onto this photo I tore out of Budget Traveler a long time ago. I am so in love with the finish of the facade, the balconies and windows, and overall broken down look of the structure. This would make a fine miniature. I am not much of a builder as I've stated before but more so a decorator. At least that is the pleasurable aspect. I am thinking of how I can incorporate the color scheme of the building on the interior walls of my dollhouse...

One of my chairs I made for the music room.

On a side note last night I dreamt I created the most perfect male clay doll ever. The memory of the dream was almost enough to make me want to play with the clay today, unfortunately it did not happen :/
