A little artist setup. Did the cat knock over the pot?

Attended Small World Minis show on the 9th, before I took off for the Tucson Book Festival. Bought some great stuff! Indulged in a couple of Acquisto silver pieces and some new finds. Will take pics and share.

I also won something! I who never win anything. An unfinished half-inch little cabin was up for raffle, so I put in my tickets. While I was off in Tucson, they drew my name. I guess leaving town was key. Anyway, it’s a cute little house called Possum Hut, looks like part of a club project. I haven’t decided yet how I’ll finish it, but I’m looking forward to it.

Meanwhile, here are pics of some great mini exhibits I saw:

Love this shabby-chic vignette: closet w/ “dressing room”. The lady who lives here must have Personality.

Beautiful glass shop, featuring glass of that artist I’ve bought from at the Mini Time Machine in Tucson.

A cute 1/4″ scale tea shop. (I love tea shops. Hot tea; scones slathered in cream and lemon curd…) This one is called “Four Mums Tea Shop.”

Loved this kitchen shop. A clever use of all those kitchen supplies. Open at the top–tried to get good pics.

The tiny 1/144″ scale (that’s 1/144, not a typo) mill was back from last year, so I took more pics. This is very, very small. (See https://jennsminis.wordpress.com/2012/03/10/miniature-show-fun/ for more pics of this mill.)

Pink bedroom by Small World member Lani Lugo. I love how feminine and frilly this is without being overdone. She has a great eye for matching color.

This lovely room is 1/4″ scale. Such detail for so small a scale.

There were many other exhibits. I wish I could have snapped more, but it was crowded, and I had to shop and run.
