Miniature Show

I had a great time at the Syracuse Miniature Show and Sale this weekend. I purchased a few awesome miniatures, a couple from a fun seller that I've bought from each time I go. And a few treasures from some of the other sellers.

The above items were all from the same seller. Doesn't she create the most wonderful things?
Ha I put new batteries in my camera and didn't even notice that the date is stamped on them from 2006. I'll have to remember to go back in and change that.

The two little dolls went into my Little Girls Roombox. The decorated quilting chair is going into my quilt/craft room roombox. All the other items went into my Shabby Rose Boutique. You can see a picture of that roombox on this blog and also at the top of this page on the right hand side.

I purchased these 15 pairs of scissors in a little plastic case for $8. I think I'll have plenty of these to use in many little workbaskets! Aren't they wonderful?I just love these little dolls.

I was looking to purchase the Marcia Backstrom resin doll from Falcon, the old lady with her hair in curlers....I want to put her at a table in my basement roombox folding laundry. But the seller that planned to bring her for me said she didn't come in. So I'll have to wait and see what happens. If anyone has a picture of that doll to share with me I'd love to see it. I really need a doll for that roombox. For some reason it just screams out to have a doll in there doing something.

I forgot to take my camera with me so I didn't get any pictures of the exhibits at the show. There were some really nice ones this year.

So that was my haul from this years show. I also bought some supplies for making little scenes. I got some bargain basement furniture to fix up and create some scenes with to sell on ebay. A good haul I have to say!

Later I'll show you what I have been busy working on using my dremel. I did get the chuck that I needed so I could use all those tiny little drill bits. I'm so excited to be able to finally use my dremel for what I've always wanted to use it for! Jeez! I don't know why I took so long to get myself in gear and take care of this issue. Guess it was Casey's tute on the wicker plant stands and having to use my husbands huge black and decker drill to make the holes in the wooden forms. That was a disaster! Now I can drill those tiny holes nice and neat and quick! And holes I have been drilling! Woohoo! Update on all that later!

Have a great day everyone. It's dreary and rainy here in New York today. I hope you're all having sunshine!
