It was a very busy holiday weekend but I still made time to put together a mini scene. This one started with the miniature replicas of the Play Modern playhouses. You can configure them in a wide variety of ways and also paint or stain the unfinished wood. The flexibility of these pieces is quite addictive. I spent an hour plus building these in every conceivable way while watching TV (BBC's Luther and old episodes of The Office on Netflix...Idris Elba is in everything, right? ha!)
I decided to add the animal Sketch Chairs which I think complement the playhouse due to the same slot together build feature. I had planned to do two scenes but only cranked out the one above before my "me time" ran out. Sorry peeps. It's how it is in Parentville (Damn--Zynga is totally going to steal that!)
So--- Hey! What do you think of the grass flooring? It came out better than I expected. It also photographs really well---see how the rhino stool is just a grazin'? ha ha! And, yes, I know that it's quite dangerous to allow wee ones to climb up on the roof of this structure to play without proper railing. In my defense, every railing I put up there just looked terrible and interrupted the open space. I think it was Paris Renfroe who said that "you don't have to be practical in the miniature world" and that's why I feel such freedom when I work--ahem, play modern in this medium.
