This past Easter holiday week has also given me a little play time. I finished all the molding around the book store entrance, finished the vent under the window and painted the interior of the second store and installed the floor.
I think the moldings around the door close in the entrance a little bit, but it is a miniature, so only small people will need to fit through! I also think I've installed the window box floor in the second store a little too high, this may need to be lowered. I will sleep on this a little bit and decide.
I hadn't seen the top of the building when I built my version. I am glad I choose this version, which again is interestingly enough, also from Universal Studios, but this I knew, and I had taken a lot of pictures of the brownstones there when we visited several years ago. It was just several months before the Harry Potter attractions opened when we visited though. We were disappointed at the time, because we could see the top of the attractions from outside, but couldn't get in to see it.
This was my inspiration for the top of the storefront.
In the past month of travel I've had lots of time to spend on my Pinterest boards while sitting in airports and spending nights in hotels. There's over 2100 followers on my boards now and over 35,000 pins, over 20,000 pins are on miniatures!

Happy Easter to all.
Until the next time....
