Recent Acquistions

I picked up a few miniature accessories at an estate sale this week.  A mini Victrola, a tiny wooden carved elephant, a brass tea pot with a removable lid, a ceramic picture, a glass pitcher and 4 striped glasses and a chubby little ceramic boy with a movable head!

I am normally not one to put people in my houses or scenes, but this little guy caught my eye.  On another note, I did go back and pick up that house a few weeks ago.  I am currently working with an electrician to make sure the electric system is safe.  More to come on that project. 

(Please disregard the messy studio - Its been a busy few weeks !)


  1. Congratulations on the new house! (The wiring does look a little scary, but sensibly, you are having it checked out.) The roof is very unique! I am sure you will have fun restoring this little gem back to its former glory.
    And by the way, a messy studio is a sign of a true artist!

  2. Hello Troy,
    Wonderful purchases. You really manage to find the most beautiful pieces. The house is beautiful! I can't wait to hear more about it.
    Big hug,

  3. Now that is a house I can really get into working on. Congratulations on such a fine house and other goodies!

  4. I am glad you went back and got that house. I love that little boy - such a character.

  5. Hi Troy,

    It's been a while, how have you been? Well, glad to see you're still snapping up all the fab miniatures in town! You have a curator's eye. Love the house.


  6. Hi Troy, good to see that you went back and bought that house. It is so cute. Hope you got it for a good price. I'm just stopping by to say how delightful your blog is. Thanks so much for sharing. I have recently found your blog and am now following you, and will visit often. Please stop by my blog and perhaps you would like to follow me also. Have a wonderful day. Hugs, Chris

  7. Great miniature purchases, and I love that house!

  8. Oh my goodness, what great finds! Love that glass pitcher and striped glasses!
