I originally put together a scene with bird motifs, but considering the recent events in Arkansas and Louisiana, I decided it would be best to wait on that imagery...
Let's see...how many kitchen scenes can I squeeze out of that Miele kitchen set by Theo Klein? Apparently too many. I'm in dire need (yeah, I'm using that "need" loosely) of some new pieces. For my miniature endeavors, I really need some interchangeable kitchen components that give creative freedom. I'm always dreaming of the day that I can go to the toy store and just pick up some sets from standard toy companies. It always feels like I'm waiting for more great modern miniatures. I'm so grateful for the modern artisans out there, but I'm an addict that needs more suppliers.
Speaking of pining for more modern miniature goods, I've been very interested in customizing a RGT Victoria's Farmhouse structure. I look at the bones of that kit and I see a gorgeous modern renovation. Yes, I'm talking about modern farmhouses again. I have a problem that has transferred over into the 1:1 world where I now look at available old schools, barns and farmhouse real estate prime for renovation. I can barely tackle a 1:12 renovation so I have no idea what has me thinking about a large scale one. We'll chalk it up to "crazy" and call it a day.
Okay! Do you dig on the paper dolls made by Jordan Grace Owens? I like how the one dimensional (err...two dimensional) characters look in the three dimensional space. The look reminds me of some TV cartoon series. Some poses for the figures are not easy, but I've been experimenting with puppet strings attached to the ceiling. The figures also have me toying with the idea of some silly stop motion film shorts. Chuckles. We'll see if I can find some time to test it out.
Oh and...Happy New Year!
