Thought this would be fun to try. Hope it works good. I worked on it for over an hour, (maybe two!) It seemed to me to be a good idea to do a video of the different hats and scarves for both the Barbie and larger Tonner dolls. Hope you like it!

Well, I took some more pictures of the display case today since I could not find the pictures I took before. I don't know what happened to them? Oh well.
This is the lower case as it is at the library. There are a few changes from the set up I did at home.
This is a closer look at the room segments.

All the furniture is made by my friend Ron Shivvers. This is the beautiful hemlock set he made just for me. It has black walnut accents. Hemlock is a softer wood then what he normally uses but I found the board and fell in love with the gorgeous grain. I challenged him to make something with it and he did not disappoint me at all!! I love it!!
The game room is fun. I made the checker board and the checkers and my grandson helped me make the box that is in the drawer of the wall table. The display case is very narrow, front to back, about 11 1/2 inches. It took a bit of doing to get things to fit and look comfortable. I found some of the miniatures at a show, like the mini pop cans, that made it look more convincing.
I'll have to share the upper shelf tomorrow because the pictures are on my other computer in the studio and it is late, too late to go get them tonight. Hope you enjoyed seeing it so far.

Our first snow of the season!! I'm so excited! I love snow and I have been hoping for a big enough storm to maybe snow us in for at least a few days, though I would prefer it to be a month! It would be the best excuse to keep my hubby home!

As you can see, my hand is doing much better now. The fingers are still stiff but I have been able to do some knitting. These are a few of my latest designs for the hat and scarf sets. As you know, I don't follow patterns so each set is unique. There are cables and twist and lacy designs that add so much personality. The scarves are 12 to 14 inches long and can be wrapped and tied in many creative ways. Flower motifs add style and flare.
This has been the most incredible fall for color this year. It is sad that the show is over now. Here's to hoping for a white winter!!
