Today I find I need smiles....so I played around with my things; some old, some new.
I bought the cat sculpture with cup on top last week on a shopping excursion with family. Love a certain gallery near Charlevoix, MI, housed in an old red school house (Biers Gallery). I have a collection of fun sculptures from this particular artist (Rex Benson); his characters always make me smile. I added the mouse (Wee Forest Folk) in the cup and love it!
I have been working on a cloche display for a posting for next week. I bought several (well...many) tiny cloches the last time I shopped in Geneva, IL and decided to see which miniatures would fit under the tiniest one. The house is actually only one inch tall! Love the details you get from laser cutting the miniature parts.
I also stopped at Hobby Lobby today to purchase some miniature trees for reworking. I browsed the sale aisle and found the chunky candle sticks...for less than five dollars for both! I'm sure that they will find a purpose, perhaps to display some miniatures or mice.
Last is my darling Bob. He prowls all night and sleeps most of the day but always smiles when I interrupt his nap-at times he even gives me a purr.
Dealing with aging parents is challenging. One day at a time and make sure you Smile!
