I have been having a lot of fun on my Instagram account recently.
Please feel free to follow Tulsa Tiny Stuff there or on Facebook as well!
This was the broom challenge in my 1940's Kage House.
This post was for Galentine's Day - entitled Love Potion No. 9 and featured some 1:12 antique Strombecker pieces.
And this is my Valentine's Day post!
Earlier in the month I posted the picture entitled
"Mrs Peacock in the Goebel Miniatures Stuart Library with a candlestick"
I found this hard plastic pillow with a tiny tassel at an estate sale today. It is actually a small ring box.

I put together this photo for my Instagram page.
I am privileged to work in Tulsa Oklahoma which is home to some of the countries greatest Art Deco architecture. This miniature 3/4" scale furniture dates from that same period.

I was recently able to acquire some rare original George LeClerc chairs and a bench from a collector in Massachusetts.
George LeClerc worked for the Tynietoy Company in the 1920's - 1930's.
All of the pieces have upholstered seats and are 1:12 scale. The collector told me that Leclerc's wife did the uphlostery on these pieces.
LeClerc pieces are typically more detailed than the regular TynieToy pieces. These pieces are made from mahogany and are finished with black paper on the bottom.

We had our annual Christmas cubical decorating contest this week. Me and my cubical mate chose "A Christmas Story" for our theme.
I crafted the ears and glasses out of card stock and felt.
My wife made some of her homemade fudge - we will see if it sways the judges!

I have picked up a few things recently at estate sales and antique malls.
The Jolly Roger is a pedal car/boat and is actually a vintage Hallmark Christmas ornament (from 1999) The metal box, ceramic tea pot, and dog are all estate sale finds. The two metal airplanes on stands that the metal clock are from an antique mall. I'm not sure what the airplane pieces are? Maybe board game pieces?
At another local estate sale I came across a whole box of Renwall and Plastico furniture from the 40's-60's. Some are duplicates of pieces that I have. I will list the rest on
I was able to install the base board and the a curtain in my retro backstage dressing room this week.
I belong to the Tulsa Miniature Club and we have all been working on individual dressing room projects and each making something to contribute to each member's room.
I also installed some old movie posters on the "outside" of my dressing room.
The chair was on old vintage one that I painted and reupholstered.
