Interlude

Fell off the blogging grid for a long time. Hello again! I’ve been wanting to write, but not sure where to start. So here goes: a few projects I’ve been working on while taking a temporary hiatus from painting.

The first house is a hand-made antique that I bought for $25. The owner thought it was haunted (!!!) and just wanted it out of her house. I rescued it happily from her driveway and that was the beginning of a tiny journey. (Pardon any technical glitches in this post, please. I am in the process of remembering how to do this!)

Lilith Garden (work in progress)

And another. Small worlds for a big planet 🌎 ~ the second house is called Lionsgate and is under total renovation right now, which I hope to document visually here. Both houses are electrified and 1:12 scale.

Lionsgate (work in progress)

I have been in love with miniatures since around age 5, and constructed my first dollhouse out of cardboard, wood, beads, rocks, and fabric scraps at age 9. I brought it to school and was surprised that the other children loved it. That began a lifelong love of everything 1:12 scale.

Little things mean a lot to me. Literally! Hope you enjoy, and stay tuned.

The Overlook. (Antique Boston Keystone house circa 1940s) Another work very much in progress.

remove the values GOOD/BAD from pain, and suffering ceases. When you get burned, learn from it, but do not stand still in the ashes
