Laundry Day



The last load of clothes are tumbling in the dryer. My weekend has come to an end. There's a wonderful sense of satisfaction when all the tasks of the day are completed and I can start my week without any leftover "To Do's" and "Should Have Been Done's" tapping on my shoulder.

I actually have several miniature scenes waiting to be photographed. I partied a little too much on Friday and was too...(we'll say) "lazy" on Saturday to take any photos. And, of course, today was a very rainy and dreary day (should I add blustery, Winnie??)...so not ideal conditions for any miniature photography. I worked on the above scene for 15 minutes. I was amazed at how many tiny weapons I have in my collection. You may not be able to see from the photos but all of the storage bins are filled with guns, shovels, knives, ammo, crossbows, handcuffs, grenades, axes, swords...


The sink and washer/dryer are from Theo Klein. The storage unit is from the Dolls House Emporium. The laundry baskets are from Plan Toys. The laundry detergent is from Re-Ment. The weapons and weapon case are from an assortment of action figures that I have purchased over the years.

  1. Very cool ... almost like an oxymoron - laundry and weapons. Ummm, is this the laundry room of 'Mr. & Mrs. Smith'?

  7. *eyes the arsenal warily*

    I guess that's one way to convince the kids to put their dirty clothes in the hamper.
