Summer ending and Fall beginning

I am a bit surprised by the time gap from the last posting.  Summer got away from me and miniatures laid abandoned for the most part.  I had a day here and there but other activities called.

If it was sunny, I was in the garden –the flowers enjoyed the attention and I had the visual satisfaction of all the work.  It had been a long time since I really put the time in before the weeds claimed the ground.  It made my summer something to savor this winter.

Aside from the gardening, we had a construction project of a stone patio and sun room.  This required a lot of moving things out of the way and then back in place.  I did rethink some things and cleared some clutter.  The project is DONE and I am ready to turn the page to fall.

So fall has official started  (contrary to the weather–very hot at the moment but due to change this week) and I am ready to slow down a bit and treat myself with playing with my miniatures again.

I did dabble here and there this summer on short bursts, so I do have some things to share.

I have gotten into the habit of Pinterest browsing in the morning with my tea.  It inspires you and gives you many idea when you are researching a topic visually.  Even if I didn’t get to make minis I got to daydream about them.  One of the post that got me excited was a doll presentation display.   For some reason the face and dress drew me and I wanted to create something similar.  I showed the picture to Pat Boldt, a fellow miniaturist that makes dolls.  She had a similar doll mold and I was ready to try my hand.

Here is the similar doll from Pat Boldt undressed

Here is my version with straw hat, collared dress, a brush and comb set and a little purse.  I even added a simple heart charm bracelet on her wrist.  It was a delight to see it all come together and finding just the right things to make a grouping.

I enjoy seeing a finished project that came from one of my wanderings on Pinterest and getting to share it with you.  Until next time…..
