Monday, back to virtually no snow on the ground again; then yesterday, more snow. On Monday, Leanne made me kung pao chicken for dinner in exchange for my putting together her new headboard and another bookcase. (Made the same blinking mistake that I made on the last one. Grrr!)
Was about 11 C today so almost all of the snow is gone again....
On to the minis:
Last night at club, we held our Shirley Phillips' estate sale. I had already bought a Christmas scene in a gift bag through the club auction and picked up a couple things. Didn't spend a great deal but pleased with my purchases.
|All these wonderful House of Miniatures kits. Fortunately I've made all but one! The only one I haven't made is the desk third up on the far right and since I have 5 or 6 desks in my stash, truly don't need another.|
|Shirley had all these Avon miniature room sets (1:24 scale).|
|The bag needs some repairs at the corners of the "window" but I'll want to add plastic to protect it from dust so I'll do that and frame the opening. Shirley made wonderful chairs and couches....and the tree is nicely decorated.|
and this beautiful bassinette! (I DO have a plan B if it's a boy.)
This beautiful St. Patrick's Day piece was made by Karen Jones of Edmonton. Have the candles for the candlesticks.
Got these two frames (1 1/2" x 1 3/4"). Showed the back of one because they are actually brooches.
There was only one package (6 pieces) of the Houseworks drawer handles but they'll look good in my kitchen.
Swore I wouldn't buy anymore lamps but this sconce was only $1 so had to have it. LOL
Got this wonderful little package of kitchen basics (butter, Carnation milk, salt, mustard, HP sauce, miracle whip and ketchup) for the kitchen I'm (supposed to be) working on.
Kudos to the club members who priced this estate for sale! A couple of our newer members were in the group that priced this estate to ease them into it. It's always such a fine line between what you know the person probably paid and what you think people will be happy to pay. They did a great job in my opinion. Thank you.
