Would Buddha have a Christmas tree?
The blue vase is new, made by my husband on his lathe.
I didn't expect to find Minis at Home Depot!
These are for those little outdoor town scenes.
TWO battery lit trees for 8 dollars.
I clipped one of them off and clipped and stripped part of the wire. Poked it through a hole in the wall and then re-connected the ends to hide the battery pack behind the house.

I am so happy to have this put back together
(and lit up like a Christmas tree):
Lights are in and some decorations and furniture.
I sawed off parts of this ikea bunk bed and spray painted it red.
Created a coverlet, pillow and mattress.
I am trying to make some of my decors and funiture instead of buying them.
This light is a "silk" flower branch with LED's inserted. (don't try this with normal light bulbs as it could catch on fire). The accessories and one cushion are Re-ment, plant post and bowl are garage sale purchases.
The pagoda from the local asian food market.
Self made cushions, towels and bench.
The bench is popsicle stick legs and foam core wrapped in fabric.

I am very happy with how these turned out.
http://theshoppingsherpa.blogspot.com/2010/07/call-of-small-studio-visit-robert-boot.html and he got inspired.
I can't wait to finish all these lights so I can get back to playing.

These look like something that could be used in a modern mini house.
From the "Woodcraft" hobby store.

These hanging lights are made out of shade pulls and silver painted plastic coffee stir sticks.
Shade pulls mounted with duct tape on a silver painted bamboo skewer make an ok pole lamp.
All of the shades in my house are missing the little plastic pulls.
(They work fine without them)
This is a straw and half a ping pong ball stuck into one of those plastic goodies that they put in the middle of the pizza when they put it in a box.

I tried to re-cover a chair and foot stool in different fabric.
It looked so bad that I tore the whole chair apart:
Take that you evil chair!
Seriously though: I like to take things
apart to learn how they're made.
These attempts were a little more successful:
(with the emphasis on little)
A little wooden bed.
I still need to paint a design on it.
A couch/bench thingy.
Or maybe it could be a massage table for the Zen/Spa room.
In any case, I have great admiration for people who create miniatures.
It is a lot more difficult than I thought it would be.
Every little imperfection gets magnified at small scale!
