Tick Tock....And A Dose Of Sunshine!




That clock!! Since everyone seemed to like it (it is very cute), I racked my brain to try and recall more details of its lineage.  It was new old stock from the online miniature show garage sale....but then it hit me...that white packaging.  I knew I recalled that specific packaging from a blog.  Then, I went through Brae (Otterine) and Keli's (iseecerulean) miniature show haul posts and pegged it from their Bishop show purchases.  Turns out its from Wright Guide Miniatures.  So, if you fancy it, ask WGM if they still stock it.  See, I'm Nancy Drew!

And if you're curious, its based on the Kit-Cat Clock.



Then I had a happy mail day from Keli.....





.......and from Anna-Maria!! These arrivals brightened my day!






I gave up waiting for nice light and the ability to take my minis outside to photograph them.  I finished my MCM room box and did the photo shoot in my living room.  Gah! Spring will just not come soon enough. Now back to editing those photos!

  3. I LOVE your kitty kat clock, Kat, and your detective work to locate its source is "Holmes-worthy";)
    And I can see that you are going to have a lot of fun ahead of you making good stuff from all your assorted minis from Keli and Anna-Maria- so let the GOOD TIMES ROLL!

  5. The light is horrible here, too! I've resorted to shining a prop light just above the subject to add a little warmer glow. The extraordinarily bright and cold LEDs in the ceiling fixture make the photos look weird. Don't wait for the light though! I am really looking forward to the big reveal!

    1. I know!!! I try to re touch the lighting but no amount of tinkering really corrects it. Halogen in my basement gives it all a yellow glow!
