Hi everybody!

WOW! I can't believe I have not posted since July! I totally missed August! Well, I am here now and want to show you a few updates of the Chess-taurant. I plan to do a few things more tomorrow so I will be closer to finished or finished. There will be more details because we know how important details are for a mini scene. There are also wall etc. touch-ups

Sorry, everything looks a bit jumbled. This was just to share something with you in case I don't get to post again within the next few days. Things will be neater once finished.

Don't forget to tap on the pictures to make them bigger!

Front view. The scene from the window on the left is  from photo I took of the outside of the Chicago Art Institute. I still have one more panel to put in and work on the window frame 

Things are still a little out of place. The window frame is actually the mat from a picture frame painted gold. I don't think I will keep it that color. The right wall will have framed pictures.

Right under the posters on the wall will go a cooler. I made the barstools.
The bowl is one half of a party favor rattle. I will go more into detail on the other things in the next post.

Sorry you can't see this very well. These are chips I made from clay

I made the platter of sandwich rolls and the sparkling cider bottles were once bowling pins.

The right wall needed something so I decided to make it comfortable with a fireplace like Panera Bread or Atlanta Bread company restaurants.

This is the women's restroom. It says "Queen" on it and the men's says "Kings."
Sorry you have to turn your head to see it. lol I just couldn't seem to get it right side up!  I will have to take a better one
( I have more projects I have been working on to share with you soon!)

SLJ Info

 Ok everybody! Thanks to Sarah of Amber's house I was able to get things back into English! The weird part is when I tried to use a translator it identified the other language as English! Glad that is over with. Thanks again Sarah!

Several people commented on Samuel L Jackson's mold. He is a Star Wars character Samuel plays named Mace Windu I got new from a thrift shop a few years ago in a damaged package. He is one of my favorites. I just took him out of the box and put him on display. Today I counted 9 points of articulation including waist and neck ( or would that be 16 counting both sides?)  It seems he may have had his sabre. I can't remember.

Ok, here is the weird part. The stamp on his back says Hasbro 1993. He didn't star in the Star Wars prequels until 1999!

For some reason blogger dashboard is all in what I believe is Turkish. Here is an example:

ቅንብሮችን ይለጥፉ      ለጥፍ

Can anyone tell me why? Or at least tell me what this says? There are two words in English...the rest are this language!
