Garage Sale-click on pictures for details

Who does not like a garage sale?  I have been a fan for many years.  The porch is one such item I got at a garage sale and had no where to put it.  The picture in the background is from a calender and it added some dimension to the scene.  This is a great way to  place things that don't have a home just yet.
I have borrowed from this many times and replaced with other items.  It is a way to display things that maybe aren't quite scale as well.

Here are some of my favorite web sites:go to Google search , they should all come up; grocery, toys, games -books-all from different eras-Great Site
Joanne Swanson has done How to articles for Nutshell News, and other miniature magazines.  She is the best!!  I enjoy her style of miniatures.  Making something great from virtually anything.  Quite a few excellent seasonal projects.     Kiva is a miniature food artisian
most of it in Fimo.  Humorous and realistic looking food.  A real inspiration to look at   Aim I Mag monthly free magazine which can be read online or sent to your Email box.
Usually about 90 pages.   To have sent to your Email monthly

They also have an advent calender every year which is archived that is really neat-Back issues are available for viewing as well.    This is the blog to the above connection.  They have lots of links of artisians according to catagories of interest

I enjoy the simple pleasure of searching web sites.  A hint is if you take the time to go into a web site, jot down a small summery of what you saw there.  Printies, ideas etc.  It will save you a lot of time in the future trying to find the idea that was great but you'll never need it again.  I always put them in my favorites, but everything seems to be my favorite and I never can find where they are.

These are just a few web sites, there are many more I will share in the future.  Thanks for taking the time to read my blog.  I have many more things to share.  I hope to start video taping how to projects in the near future.

  1. I was having the same problem re-finding tutorials and printies when I needed them so I organized an alphabetized list of links and put it in a blog, come by for a visit and let me know what you think.

    I love your trash to treasure minis.
