...I'm not quite sure what to title this.
I brought everything in the house, piled it in my dining room, and started to sort through it. I cried a little. It's all so heartwarming, and so beautiful, and so overwhelming. There are seven rooms in five structures (one structure is a three room tower), a box of stash goodies, and a box of supplies.
How I'm going to approach sharing this, I've decided, is to reassemble each room as close as I can to how Charlene finished it, using pictures taken before the rooms were moved and the furniture and accessories slid all over. I'll compose one blog post per room, to share, honor, and appreciate Charlene's passion for miniatures with all of you. Then I need to give adequate thought to what to do with everything.
Let's start with the contents of the boxes, since everything is now spread out on a table in my studio and needs to be taken care of before I can move a room there.
The table is hand painted...beautiful work....no artist's signature...there are also three hand painted plates to match, one in the center of the table and two to follow in another picture.
I had no idea what that funny looking thing front and center is, Susan told me it's a cranberry scoop.
Speaking of not knowing what something is...what's this?
There's an eye hook on the back...or what I'm assuming is the back...
The inside isn't finished, is it just part of a piece and not the whole piece, do you think?
