Happy Valentines Day On The Set !

 A Very Happy Valentines Day to my fellow bloggers !

I recently came across this book "ON THE SET" and its sequel "ON THE SET Take Two"
This book talks to me on a few different levels.  It is great to come across a fellow miniature enthusiast, and it is also great to see re-creations of the scenes I grew up watching on t.v.

  1. Wonderful link! I've had fleeting thoughts of making a miniature restaurant like one I loved in Florida. I figured there would be some copywrite issues so I've not done it. YET.
    These sets are really cool.
    Thanks for sharing and "Happy Valentine's Day" to you and your family too!

    1. I remember seeing pictures a while back of a miniature Cheesecake Factory that someone was working on. It was really great and very detailed, even down to the booth design and light fixtures.

  2. I love me some twisted links!!! This is the best post EV-AH! Thank you, thank you, thank you, Troy!!!

    Oh, and happy VD, too.

    1. lol - thanks John. Glad I could help you out! The level of detail in his work is not quite the same as we are used to in the blogs, but it's kind of a unique style.
