Been Busy

You may wonder what I have been up to since my encounter with the mini table saw a few weeks ago. Well of course I couldn't stay away from minis. I've been busy making some things for the Indianapolis miniatures show sponsored by The Museum of Miniature Houses.  The show is September 20 and 21. 

This is what I've been up to:

A few one of a kind pieces

 Some coffee and end tables: the tops are made by my husband.

Unfinished MCM sofas with attached end tables...these are what I was cutting out when I cut my thumb on the table saw.

Some unfinished one of a kind pieces including a mini Heywood Wakefield dog bone bed.  I'm finally experimenting with my mini scroll saw.

Unfinished bullet planters...are you seeing a theme here?  Unfinished

 A few lamps...all working of course. Again, some unfinished.

A few shelving units (made by my husband)...actually these have been sitting in my work room for a few months.

A modern sink.  I still want to make a few more and a couple of shower units.

A box full of vintage items, mostly Petite Princess, vintage German and a few Crailsheimer pieces.

I'm still working on making some modern fireplaces both working and non-working. I'd love to make at least one kitchen.  I've also made some accessories, but I still want to make some pillows.  I only have a couple of weeks to finish what I've started and make a few more pieces before the show. If we don't do well at the show at least it will be a learning experience and I will have plenty to sell on Etsy and Ebay. Eek!
