Latest goodies

 When you work with minis it almost seems your eyeballs become smaller. Or maybe it is your brain. At any rate when my eyes saw this my mind said...O-O-O-O look at the bookshelf/wall unit! It is actually a printer's draw. No, not the kind you plug in,but the person who used to print newspapers and things with a machine. One end has an easily removable handle and is just the right size for a mini scene. I put some of my magazines in it to show the scale. It is also compared with a standard commercial dollhouse bookshelf I bought on eBay.

I love the various size shelves

There is one screw on either side of the handle. I am sure I will find a use for that too lol

The smaller one does not cover a whole wall. The larger one can be a whole wall lol
Speaking of is another one I made
Interior two pages of same magazine

These folks are just hanging out and deciding on what kind of room this will be.

I thought this would be a cute store front once the back is taken off...and used for something else of course.  This is to show the size compared to the  other box.
As  you can see the racks are the length of the walls in the larger box.  A store maybe? The little red house is somewhere between a large dog house and a child's playhouse

 Some of the cashiers at the thrift shop I bought these in just can't figure out what I am doing with all of this stuff. There doesn't seem to be a rhyme or reason for the things I buy. One day I will explain. LOL

    Hugs Maria

    1. Maria,
      Thanks! I would like to add these to the neighborhood I am slowly building. Wouldnt it be nice to have an antique shop and maybe a magazine/book store?

  2. It's so nice when you come across something brilliant to yous mini. This book shelf is brilliant. So many options.

    1. Wyrna,

      Cool huh? I want to make it one of those variety book/magazine stores for my neighborhood. I will be on the hunt for things to fill it.

  3. Hello Grandmommy,
    Those are such great items to use in miniature. With your imagination I know it will be wonderful. I would not say anything tot he cashiers...keep them guessing ;)
    Big hug,

    1. Giac,

      It will be an adventure to decide how to use these. My goal is to used them somehow in the "neighborhood."
      I do get a giggle from their looks and sometimes even their questions.


It is fun hearing from all of you!
