Dilapidated

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 :/

Polymer clay looks like a good strategy to get the 'man of your dreams' ;)

Great chair!!

And I can certainly see why you've fallen in love with that facade, there's something quite appealing about 'elegant decay' I think.

Thanks Norma!

I admire your efforts with the clay! I too have been making man dolls lately.... not too successful yet! I am starting with the old wrinkly guys and working my way up to the man of my dreams! But you never know, he might just turn out to be one of the wrinkly guys! I am also making some wrinkly old ladies.... got a castle to fill!

LOL at old wrinkly guys. They do seem like the easiest one's to create. Thank you for your compliment-I try! I myself have yet to make the perfect doll hopefully I will resume practice soon.

Chadina, your chair is wonderful!!! I really like it very much :).

I tried to enlarge the pic to have a closer look but it brought me to another site..LOL!

And we can all be builders. I am sure you can too from the things I have seen you built !
