|A garage sale find that works perfectly click on picture for details.|
I found this fireplace at a garage sale more than a few years back for $2.00. It is plaster of paris and the bricks are carved into it. It is signed and numbered on the back. I believe it goes with the Byers Collectible series. It is 5 1/2 inches long high and 8 inches long. It has a metal crane for a pot and 2 warming ovens or bake ovens. The mantel is carved to look like a log. There are a few spots that need fixed and filled in with plaster, but over all I think this will work. Ignore the giant curve on the logs beside the fireplace. I told you this was rustic and not perfect. I will look forward to putting this all together. I will share this when I have completed it entirely, hopefully this year yet.
As I have mentioned before I usually have a few projects started at a time, and jump from one to another. I am sharing time with the 1910 reunion project. The tables are finished and I am working on the food.
The dolls are next. I am teaching my neighbor girl how to pour porcelain dolls. We will be making Elvis and Shirley Temple. Not to be used in the reunion project but she likes those.
I recently purchased a set of baby molds by Cynthia Howe Miniatures. They are a boy and girl baby sleeping and awake. They are anatomically correct, and so adorable. She has a web site of all her molds, trims, and online classes. Google Cynthia Howe Miniatures and it will come right up.
