Celebrating 100 Posts !

WOW - It is hard to believe that I am celebrating my 100th blog post.  I noticed that I had reached 99 earlier this week and realized that 100 posts is quite a milestone!  To be honest, I really didn't know what to expect when I started blogging back in January of 2010.  At first I just wanted a website or a way to share my miniature collection and projects, but along the way, I feel like I have made so many friends and learned so much.
I want to say THANK YOU to all of my followers and those who have helped make a difference with your emails and words of encouragement and inspirational projects over the past 975 days or 2 years and 8 months ( there is an app for that! )

One of the things that has really surprised me are the posts that people find the most interesting.  As you can see over to the right, My trip to the Oak Alley Plantation is currently the most popular post, followed by the apartment project, and the Playmobil House - who would have 'thunk'?  Those are certainly not the ones I would choose!

Of all the projects that I love the most - Carolyn's Place is in my top favorites.  This is the house that I built with my daughter - she selected all of the finishes and we spent hours working together over a few years.  

Collecting seems to where I have the most time lately.   If you have not seen some my collections, please click a link below and leave a comment: 


The other thing that this milestone has brought to my attention is how many unfinished projects I have!   I enjoy spending what little free time I have, working on several projects at once, multi-tasking, mulling ideas over in my mind before committing to something.   Even when a project is "finished" - it seems there is always something I could do to make it better.   I do find it exhilarating, being able to escape to my log cabin project or jump back to simpler times and previous decades with miniatures using some of my collections or antique houses.

I also find it fascinating how all of us miniature enthusiasts around the world, can not only get lost in our own projects, but find joy and inspiration ( and maybe a tinge of envy?) in each others work!  Again, THANK YOU to all of my followers and I appreciate your friendship, comments and emails.  I look forward to several hundred more posts, new projects, finishing old projects, and making new friends along the way - Troy

I would love to hear from you - my email is
