I've also been finishing up one more online course. I'm actually supposed to be writing my final today, but their web site has gone down....so to kill some time while I wait, what better thing to do than blog to all of you. (Okay, now I'm rhyming, totally unintentional!)
While in North Carolina attending a furniture show, I saw these interesting looking items filling a glass jar in a supplier's showroom. Don't they look like miniature pumpkins? All the supplier representatives I work with are very familiar with my hobby, so when I notice these things they are always prepared. They told me to grab a handful to take. Don't they look perfect for a miniature Halloween or fall project.
Not sure what they really are, they are extremely light weight and feel like seed pods. But my miniature mind saw pumpkins! The scale is perfect.
I was walking through a Home Office section at another supplier's showroom and noticed that the stationary in the filing trays on one of the desk appeared to have a pattern on the underside. When I turned the page over I saw this beautiful cream and black print. Isn't it a perfect miniature wallpaper. Excellent, I got another offer to take a few pages, so now I have four pages of this lovely print.
Don't know where I'll use it, so for now it's just added to the stash.
I was able to squeeze in a quick stop at Hobby Lobby where I picked up more strip wood. They had a sale on their miniature line so I got a few miniature lights perfect for pot lights and a box of mold making compound. That will be great when I get back to the bakery all the many duplicates of baked goods I will need.
Until the next time.....
