I can easily and immediately identify every piece in the picture. On these trays, I have several atomic orange candles, pizza slices, dishes (white, yellow, and even orange... back in these days, I didn't have a lot of white clay for dishes), slices of bread, bananas, cucumbers, carrots, and some other random pieces. All this went right into my barbie dollhouse of course!
It is so much fun finding plastic bag fulls of my old, old minis! My sister Margaret and I would make loads of "interesting-looking" food for our barbies. Everytime we saw food on a movie or in a magazine which we liked, we tried our very best to imitate it.
I am currently in the process of retrieving more pictures. In addition, I am going to take some shots of the old pieces which I still have.
All in all, I would have to say that my miniatures have improved since this picture was taken! Haha.

Without a doubt, I have been making less miniatures since school started... that I have said before. My entire schedule has been adjusted. I can't wait to unveil some new surprises!
I have been very active for the past three Saturdays. I am looking forward to the upcoming weekend when I can stay at home, and maybe even sit down with my minis.
The bread-making prep board which is now completely finished. You can see a pile of flour, some wheat, brown eggs, one cracked egg, dough, a rolling pin, and a cooked and sliced loaf of bubbly bread.

I decided it was time to make another prep board. Miniature prep boards are so much fun and they make great gifts.
Anyway, here is a pumpkin pie prep board. Everything is 100% handmade except for the spoon, pie dish, and the wood for the board.
Enjoy the pictures.
Spoon and bowl. The spoon was bought.
An aerial view. It's hard to see the detail inside of the carved pumpkin.
The top of the pumpkin beside the knife.
Close-up of the seeds.
My little friend.

However, I finally made my own charlotte cake (pictured to the right). Rich chocolate sauce and chocolate shreds are surrounded by six juicy, vibrant strawberries. I LOVE chocolate and strawberries, together or by themselves.
Candy corn earrings and necklace in anticipation of Halloween.
